Thought for the week...

At a Native American gathering in Arizona for the 1999 summer solstice, a Hopi Elder said: "There is a river flowing now, very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. they will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel that they are being torn apart, and suffer greatly. Know that the river has its destination. The elders say we must push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open and our heads above the water. See who is in there with you and celebrate. At this time in history we are to take nothing personally, least of all ourselves, for the moment we do that, our spiritual growth comes to a halt... Gather yourselves; banish the word 'struggle' from your attitude and vocabulary... we are the ones we've been waiting for."
~ from Meditations from the Mat: Daily Reflections on the Path of Yoga by Rolf Gates and Katrina Kenison

This week, or if you feel like you are under too much pressure and don't know where to turn, just remember to relax and go where life takes you - we are already who we want to be.

  1. So this is pretty much how I am most days of my life. I'm a go with the flow kinda guy.
    Up until the last couple days when I've been unable to relax and get back to that mode.
    Now how is it that you "coincidentally" post this today?
    Clearly the only reasonable explanation is that you're a WITCH! Sorry, we'll have to have a burning at the stake again.

  2. Aren't you at least going to weigh me next to a duck first? Is there no justice???
