Again, months have passed since I posted here. I do have to say that it is not so much for lack of interest but for the sheer awe at the simple challenges of life that have come to meet my family head on in this passing year 2010. Sometimes we are compelled to verbalize our experiences, sometimes silence would suffice. I felt the latter was more in order. The issue is not what these challenges were or how they affected my family's private life, the issue is to carry on with awareness. If you are standing on your two feet you have been blessed. Take nothing for granted - be affected by everything. Cherish your friends - without them you are lost, believe me. Live every moment like it is THE MOMENT. You can talk about it in your yoga class, but it is not the same as being there for that MOMENT, and if you have, you will understand what I am saying (in fact, I have not been to a yoga class this year - the whole plane of existence is now my yoga class, as the trivial saying goes, "my practice off the mat"). Don't worry about the little petty things - they annoy all of us, but in the end, this will not define how you've lived your day - that is, unless you let them to...
Show compassion, because you may not know when you want some too from the cosmic vortex. Step slowly over the threshold into 2011 - and be grateful for every moment of grace with your family and loved ones, who may be near or far. Many blessings to all, and wishes of health and harmony in 2011. Om Namah Shivaya.
