Greetings Yogis & Yoginis,
You have been in my thoughts a lot this new year, as I have been negotiating my personal life’s journey. Personal practice has been very alive for me at this time.
The end of February is still winter for some in the world. Northern California is bursting forth in Spring flowers and warm weather, which is both welcome and concerning as far as rain goes. We rely on it at this time of year to carry us through the dry season.
In the USA we are also seeing polarity playing out politically that threatens our very constitution.
A welcome quote from Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, in his new book, In Love with the World,puts our journey in perspective.
“People everywhere try so hard to make the world better. Their intentions are admirable, yet they seek to change everything but themselves. To make yourself a better person is to make the world a better place. In order to move the world, we must be able to stand still in it.”
Gandhi’s approach: “Be the change you wish to see in the world” rings true.
The beauty for us on this yogic path, is that we are showing up on our mats, facing and working with our conditioned existence regularly. I will be traveling less this year, so I hope to see you at one of these venues this Fall.
