YOGA NEEDS YOU TOO

 

 

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY WEEKEND!

 

Happy Mother’s Day weekend to all moms, step moms, foster moms, mothers to be, the fathers who are mothers, the mothers who are no longer with us, and those who lost their moms.

Moms are priceless!  I love you mom!  Thank you for all you do. 

 

LET IT BE

 

It’s not a matter of letting go — you would if you could.  Instead of “let it go” we should probably say “let it be”. - Jon Kabat-Zinn

 

 

SERVE, LOVE, GIVE

 

 

WHO HURT YOU?

 

A friend called me: depressed.  She was excluded from a party, by a friend, who’s also a relative.  They are very close emotionally and geographically too.  They do not live far from one another.  As a matter of fact, this friend stopped by her house just a couple of hours before the party, not mentioning the event to her at all.

I understand why my friend is upset.  Completely!  I have been there before.  But it was in the past.  And when it’s all said and done, here’s the message:

Someone asked: Who hurt you?

I replied:  My own expectations.

I love you dear friend.  You are also like a mother to me.  

 

 

LIVE EVERY MINUTE

 

These are lyrics to “Every Minute” by Annihilator.  Thanks Alan for sharing it.  We love anything that reminds us to live in the moment.  

Try to get it, give it all you've got

Live every minute, before it's time to rot

Try to get it, cause death is calling you

Live every minute before your time is through

So many chances and so many dreams

Too many regrets to ignore

I'm beggin' for mercy and I'm beggin' on my knees

I can't take this anymore

Please say a prayer for the dying

And now I must say goodbye

My time is up and I'm full of regret

Don't let life pass you by

 

PROMISE ME TO MEDITATE

 

I missed my nephew’s 4th birthday party today because I was going through  RTS (Resistance Training Specialist) training.  

Just want to give my darling, full-of-energy-yogi nephew a shout out.  Happy birthday Blessed One!

He loves yoga!  Last year I got him to promise me to Meditate, if I left him one of my yoga blocks.  I’m not sure how much time he’s got to meditate, but at least I got him to commit.  He’s too funny.

 

A GRAND CINCO DE MAYO

 

My classmates and I avoided Velvet Taco located in the Gold Coast area of Chicago today because it’s Cinco De Mayo.  

What does Cinco De Mayo mean to us who do not have direct ties with Mexico?  Surely, in a way, we all do.  And I suppose it’s a way to support our friends who do have ties.  But is it really just another reason to consume a Bunch alcohol?  I don’t know!

I suppose alcohol isn’t worse than consumption of Sugar.  Or Fatty foods.  What do you think?

 

WHEN I SANG I FOUND MY ETERNITY

 

 

NO OTHERS

 

Questioner:  How should we treat others?

Ramana Maharshi:  There are no others.
