June 30, 2009

The June 30th advice for a year in living your yoga states Chocolate is one of the sacraments.
Being truly alive to our sensations is to be truly alive to life. Sit in a quiet place and take a bite of your favorite chocolate. Hold it in your tongue: let it melt slightly. Taste it fully. Enjoy the smell. It is not the chocolate that is the practice; it is the ability to be fully alive to each moment. Cultivate this practice today.

Very nice, very nice.....

Heart of Change

lately I have been saying to myself, " Be the change. Be the change" I walk my dogs, go about my day, grocery shop, write reports, go to meetings , pay the bills and I tell myself over and over" be the change... be the change." There is something internal going on inside of me. Something profound that I am at this point unable to articulate yet feel in every fiber of my being. So Friday I am in yoga class, burning off my karma and opening up my heart chalkra and my teacher Jenna says,

"If you wanna make the
world a better place
take a look at yourself and
then make the change."

ahh.... thank you girl, that was perfect and to you Mr. Jackson, I really didn't know you very well but I am very sorry things were so terribly painful for you. I hope the next time is much better. Thank you for the message, I'll take it to heart.

Goblin Market
Morning and evening
Maids heard the goblins cry:
"Come buy our orchard fruits,
Come buy, come buy:
Apples and quinces,
Lemons and oranges,
Plump unpeck'd cherries,
Melons and raspberries,
Bloom-down-cheek'd peaches,
Swart-headed mulberries,
Wild free-born cranberries,
Crab-apples, dewberries,
Pine-apples, blackberries,
Apricots, strawberries; -
All ripe together
In summer weather...

The Finish Line

I don't need to win, I just need to cross it. One more week, one more slightly insane seven days with a lot of small finish lines in between. Keep breathing, stay cool, concentrate and then I'm FREE!
In the coming months I'll be checking out some interesting yoga teachers and sharing my impressions. Exploring This Crazy Vegan Life with Christine Pirello, adjusting to the new and exciting changes in my ever changing life, and studying for my qualifying exam.
OK! Yeah! Lets do it!
Have a good, good feeling week everyone.

I can do it!

It's a bit like this for a while. lots of meetings, paperwork, construction on the house ,massive changes in the personal life and a cracked car window. Looking forward to breathing in a green Summer with lots of yoga. See you soon !
