    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.

    “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!

    To My Very Own HeartBlue Snowflake

    January 1, 2016

    May all hearts be continuously nourished in and by Divine Love and Grace.

    May our associations with one another be always fragrant & blessed.

    May we shine ever brighter and deeper simply because we are loved and adored.

    May we always feel and know that.

    May I be able to maintain an overall steady state of wellness and balance.

    May I finally experience myself as a good mother.

    May I feel steady, strong and fluid in this role.

    May I be able to maintain an overall steady state of wellness and balance.

    May I feel gorgeous and worthy always of loving, being and contributing.

    May I feel gorgeous and worthy always of receiving love and adoration.

    May I be able to maintain an overall steady state of wellness and balance (third times a charm)

    May I be wise, intelligent and discerning as I work on figuring out my contribution that simultaneously makes a living for myself & my family.

    May Sierra (my daughter) and my parents feel proud of me one day.

    May the mystery that is the marriage of Self Effort & Grace in my life, in Sierra’s life, and in the lives of All ~ Have qualities like Fresh Ash:

    Soft, Light, White, Warm; 

       Infinite (grains of ash) representing Infinite Possibility. 

    Every Moment.

       Blessed by The Heart, Blessed by The Soul 

       That is That Which Loves & Adores Us.

    May all living beings experience Love, Safety and Peace.

    I Love You Life.

    Thank You, for SO MUCH may it simply suffice as it is.

    Dhanyavad (thank you, or gratitude in Hindi)

  • 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
