Shanti. Peace. Namaste.

After spending the whole day feeling tired, depressed, anxious, hopeless, and unmotivated, two things helped me go to sleep feeling happy, at ease, and ready for another day.

Friends and Yoga

When I see people who I haven’t seen in a while, it can go a lot of ways. Yesterday, I saw several former colleagues/friends and all it did was make me smile and laugh. Some of us are in the same place, most of us have moved on, but all of us were genuinely happy to see each other. We were treated to champagne and lovely hors d’oeuvres and chatted about family, jobs, and vacations.

Yoga felt so perfect last night. I led a practice full of heart openers. We shined our heart light to those who are suffering from the unspeakable tragedies of the past several days. Everyone seemed to move as one, exactly the way I had intended. I’d like to believe we did our small part in healing some of the wounds.

I ended with these words last night. Please let the whole world feel this.

Shanti. Shanti. Shanti.

Peace. Peace. Peace.

I honor you in the place in which the whole universe dwells.

I honor you in the place of love, light, peace, and truth.

When you are in that place in you,

And I am in that place in me,

We are one.

Namaste.

Yoga: The Heart Chakra

I hope my boss at Ocean Yoga Center doesn’t mind that I posted this on the bulletin board at the studio tonight. Last week, we worked on our heart chakra, so Emma wanted to contribute. Don’t you just love the big, wide, boxy body? Lots of room for love to flow!

Happy Love Day

To celebrate love today and every day, enjoy one of my recent poems:

love

The heart begins its dance in a very private place. It needs not be told how.

The beat is steady and the music is strong.

When it emerges to be of this world, it is forced to learn about pain.

But the beat is still steady and the music is strong.

People ask things of it and question its worth. It sends its love out but often comes up short.

Yet the beat is steady and the music is strong.

When the heart knows it is safe and offers love to another,

Then, that heart feels safe and offers love to yet another.

Then three hearts beat steady and the music is strong.

The dance goes on and on and before you know it,

Everyone’s heart feels safe and every heart feels love.

The beat is steady.

The music is strong.

The dance is forever beautiful.
