• Hello. Life’s been good to me. Life’s been difficult in recent years. Today I begin a’new. I am wanting stillness, peace, and a quiet mind. I want to be quiet, sensitive and impeccable. May desperation fuel my blessed success.
    Swaha ~ Sanskrit meaning ‘I throw myself into the sacred fire that purifies the human dilemma so that we can know and be the Love and the Light that is our birthright.
    If you want to join me in beginning a’new, I welcome you with outstretched arms full of love and support.

    “Carry On Wayward Son” by Kansas

    *words changed by sb to fit, 1/6/2016
    *salmon colored words most important (for me)

    Carry on my wayward daughter

    There’ll be peace when you are done

    Lay your weary head to rest

    Don’t you suffer no more

    Ah

    Once I rose above the noise and confusion

    just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion

    I was soaring ever higher, but I flew too high

    Though my eyes could see I still was a blind woman

    Though my mind could think I still was a mad woman

    I hear the voices when I’m dreaming,

    I can hear them say

    Carry on my wayward daughter,

    There’ll be peace when you are done

    Lay your weary head to rest

    Don’t you suffer no more

    Masquerading as a woman with a reason

    My charade is the event of the season

    And if I claim to be a wise woman,

    Well, it surely means that I don’t know

    On a stormy sea of moving mind/emotion

    Tossed about, I’m like a ship on the ocean

    I set a course for winds of fortune,

    But I hear the voices say

    Carry on my wayward daughter

    There’ll be peace when you are done

    Lay your weary head to rest

    Don’t you suffer no more no!

    Carry on,

    You will always remember

    Carry on,

    Nothing equals the Splendor

    Now your life’s no longer empty

    Surely heaven waits for you

    Carry on my wayward daughter

    There’ll be peace when you are done

    Lay your weary head to rest

    Don’t you suffer,

    Don’t you suffer no more,

    No more!

  • August 12, 2015 /  LIFE, YOGA

    The more serious days of my Retreat have come to a close. I’ve had a glorious four weeks. I had several mandates that were so helpful I want to share them. #5 is perhaps the most important.

    1   NURTURE: read, rest when tired, exercise, eat well, take baths, swim, do what I want, don’t do what I don’t want to do just because I think I should or need to (my house got pretty messy at one point!)

    2   LISTEN: remain quiet (in mind) while listening, watch out for narcissistic temptations to interrupt and don’t, unless I need to.

    3   SPEAK MINIMALLY, CAREFULLY & SIMPLY: no social plans & minimal conversations.

    4   PACE: keep it slow and steady, all the time. Includes things like driving, speaking, planning ahead to eliminate need to rush, exercise, no time commitments when not necessary, etc.

    5   MIND: Do not respond to my mind’s many firings of thought, idea, and impulse. Ideally, do not respond ever to such things. Rather, make choices to act from a deeper place where impulses naturally contain heart (caring for all living beings and our planet), wisdom, discernment, intuition and clarity.

    I’m like all brand new. And though I need to get back to work now, these mandates seem to have become natural impulses that require delicate care and constant attention. For me, Summer Retreat 2015 is the beginning of a life that is held in Rest, Relaxation, Love of Life, Beauty & That which is Natural.Reaching In, Reaching Out
