Teaching Children in India

Thank you, India

for teaching me how to feel in my bones

the truth of my purpose

and my presence

here and now…

DSC02936 - Copy…How to build on my prana, on my vitality behind my communication….

 

DSC02937 - Copy

…How to refine my

communication

so it is effective and precise…

…That I don’t necessarily need to speak the language,

{or even use words}

to share steadiness, compassion and connection..

…I do need to do the {yoga} work beforehand to intuitively tap into the  children’s NEEDS…..

and collaborate more and more and more with other like-minded individuals. Through what Yogi Bhajan has called the collective pool of intelligence……

Because wherever passion and inspiration flows, connecting with  others creates an even  greater flow…

and breathing

and chanting

and laughing

and moving together

is Universal…

…And moving through the pairs of opposites without struggle or being affected by them is the universal teaching…

… We need to receive in order to hold space…

Love is a creative force within us that makes the impossible, possible.

May we love deeply both which feels like hurt,

and that which feels like nourishment.

 I bow to the subtle and not so subtle, {more like intense}, teachers inside and outside…

…especially this one….

IMG_8836…who taught us

NOT to feel sorry for someone,

it’s diminishing and never helps.

Turn that energy into prayer.

Think, “How can I serve them?”

Instead of feeling sorry for yourself feeling sorry for them.

Serve them.

May we  remember that LOVE is a creative force in EVERY human being.

    WE are the yoga that we bring to the children!!!!! When we connect with ourselves FIRST (through OUR own practice), we immediately become open and receptive to that universal energy that we all share. Children have this remarkable ability to connect to love, joy, peace and light SO quickly and purely. When we allow ourselves to open to THAT energy, we have the ability to communicate, connect and share with them on this higher energetic (or soul) level. No words are even need. WaHe GuRu my dear friend.
