There’s a Better Way

February 13, 2021

Can I scream my way into silence?Can I think my way into stillness?Can I negotiate with my mind’s projections, hoping to settle on one that temporarily suits me?As the mind seems stuck playing a circus tune, I remember that there’s a better way:Laying the heavy load of the ego mind at the feet of the […]

We’re about to watch the fall of the false idols the world conditioned us to worship our whole life.Are you ready for your thought system to be completely turned upside down?Of course you’re not; no one ever is.Do you really think you can tell the real from the pre-packaged illusion you bought into?Nothing is as […]

Be Still and Know

January 7, 2021

“Curving back within myself,I create again and again.”(Bhagavad Gita) Intuition will be your most important tool moving forward.Do you believe everything you hear? Has true perception been blocked by layers upon layers of tightly held beliefs?What is belief but a decision you made at some point in the past? That decision may have been appropriate […]

No resolution, this year or any other year. Instead, complete devotion this day and every day to the One Who eternally lives in my heart, as I live in His. Here I am, Lord.

2020: Clarity

December 31, 2020

Undoing Illusion: 108 Sun Salutations

September 20, 2020

Although the whole practice of 108 sun salutations is a meditation in itself, especially with the specific dedications preceding each of the nine rounds of 12 salutations, I felt compelled to start our fall 2020 practice with this “undoing” meditation. The practice of yoga, which means union, is really a practice of undoing because never […]

No yoga pose means anything in and of itself. These physical expressions are forms that were all made up by someone at some point; whether a pose was invented a hundred years ago or yesterday is irrelevant  because its meaning to the person practicing the pose comes from the person practicing the pose.

Falling is not Failing

May 13, 2020

Growth is usually not linear, not chronological, not organized, not planned, not pretty, and definitely not comfortable. But is that so looking from the vantage point of the seed or from the perspective of the plant? What does the legless tadpole know about the hopping frog, although it is destined to become one? The fall […]

When the world seems out of order, maybe it’s time for an internal reorder. Would we ever make radical changes to our life if we always got what we think we needed? Has the inner void ever been filled by the temporary satisfaction of having our projections momentarily fulfilled? Hasn’t the fear of our life’s […]
