• 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.

    I’m all about work now. And Love. Are they the same thing? Absolutely!

    I’ve been on sabbaKrsna Govindatical since Spring 2015. I’ve declared (to myself) that February 1, 2016 marks me getting back to work. Lots of face-lifting has taken place, and more to come. I hope you will stay tuned.

    I spent most of the Fall in bed. I pretty much checked out and sent everybody who loves me away. Lost 20 lbs, which I’m excited about though my daughter said I was way too skinny, especially at my lowest (108 lbs.). I’ve been a food-acholic my whole life so being super thin is a dream come true. I’ve been eating healthfully for 5 weeks now (& exercising) and love my newfound body which is hovering between 111 – 114 lbs. (I’m 5’4″ tall). I haven’t been this light since high school. Yipee!

    I wasn’t intentionally losing weight. I simply lost my appetite which translated into eating very little on a daily basis for quite some time.

    My body; specifically my appetite is very different now than it’s ever been. I seem to have cured the food addiction situation, which feels like Freedom, Glory and the possibility of eternal delicious food forevermore!

    Consider this your Invitation to celebrate with me.

    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

  • July 25, 2015 /  YOGA

    Last night I started my blog saying for the first time yesterday I think I actually relaxed. Then I went into the It Just Is experience that I had yesterday. After I posted I realized I didn’t expound on the relaxed thing. I’ve been trekking the spiritual path Hindu~esq style for 32 years. I’ve read a lot. And I’ve had numerous spiritual experiences. Some of the catch words that I’ve liked that try to describe what we are ‘seeking’ include stillness, emptiness and peace. And some of the words I’ve liked that describe the spiritual experience include beauty, intelligence, humility and awe. But yesterday I was having an experience that was very new and not spiritual. I was simply so relaxed. And it felt right. It seemed like one important point of spiritual endeavor.

    I am updating this post weeks later and I can report with pleasure and gratitude that I am still very pretty relaxed most of the time. Hurray! This is so very good.

  • July 24, 2015 /  LIFE

    Today feels like the first day of my personally declared Retreat that began on July 11th. I live on 2 acres in a lovely converted barn. My landlords inhabit the main house on property. They are away for 3 weeks and I now have utter peace, beauty and privacy in my home environment.

    If you are a Materialist:  I am feeling oh so lucky and grateful.

    If you are a Spiritual Type:  I am feeling blessed.

    *…i will write and share more later. For now I get to do some gardening chores, and give strokes and love to my landlord’s cat, a regal Egyptian looking queen of sorts.
