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.
