I Am Because You Are

ALL OF LIFE IS A MEDITATION,EVERY SITUATION AN OPPORTUNITY FOR EXPANSION… the awareness and awakening I experience every day in my work… sometimes in the serenity of teaching yoga, sometimes in the clanging of weights,sometimes in the endorphin release of endurance, sometimes in the santosha (contentment) of cooking meals, sometimes in the stillness of meditation, give my mind, body and spirit the same release and respite as spending a few days in a retreat or ashram and for this I fold my hands in gratitude to the enriching interaction with each one of my clients… “I am because you are.”


LABELS… what do you do? who is that with you? what religion are you???

Whether they define relationships, personal achievements, beliefs, or whatever… I’ve learned that labels lead to all sorts of expectations and preconceived notions. They put us in a box and make us conform to some sets of rules and ideas, they rob us of our uniqueness and force a relationship to comply with certain standards. Labels cannot define me… I am just me and I am fluid and I change and I flow like a singing brook experiencing life and all that it has to offer. The more I soak in as I walk my path, the less I realize I know, the more honest and fearless I am about my feelings and needs, the less I need a label for a sense of security and identity… for I am nothing but a transient star in the sky but then I am everything the eternal all encompassing sky… chittanad roopah shivoham shivoham!!!!
