present

It’s been a while since I’ve written about future tripping. To me future tripping is planning out the future. Playing the, “If this happens I’ll do this,” game. Constructing a whole sequence of events before they even occur. I’ve been doing that this week because I’m planning a big retreat taking place at the end [...]

As I write this one of my friends is in labor. Although she wasn’t due until the 24th the baby obviously had other plans. The reason I mention this is because all day yesterday and today I’ve been thinking about timing – how timing is out of my hands and how in the past that’s [...]

For a long time I used to believe if certain things happened to me my life would stop or the world would stop spinning. Something like that.

I know I’ve written about this before but I’m human so sometimes it takes me a while to learn my lessons. Some may even say it’s a lifelong process. . . Anyway, this year I made the New Year’s Resolution to be more present and stay in the moment. I feel like the Universe is [...]

There is a concept in yoga that I have struggled with for years. Santosa, or contentment, simultaneously makes perfect sense and yet completely baffles me at the same time. On the one hand contentment seems completely called for. To me it translates into not being greedy, to feeling satisfied with the amount of money, power, [...]

This week someone I really loved and cared about died. What it really highlights for me is nothing is permanent, nothing is stable.At this moment I feel extremely unsettled, like God reached down and shook up my snow globe, which is perhaps a good thing.Recognizing nothing is permanent, nothing is secure, really forces me to [...]
