Falling leaves

I walk into the autumn morning. The fallen leaves lead my way.
The sun decides to take a peek and I, I stop and turn, the warmth feels nourishing.

The trees behind me whisper "we are with you, we will hold and raise you towards the sun".
I look up, the passing clouds so soft and light, enticing me to drift.

Traffic n space

Traffic and space are the two words that come to mind. 
Same spot I have stopped before. It's a spot just off highway 81, in a small town called Tully.  Surrounded by space, nestled between the highway, a gas station and an eatery, is Best Western.  

Just for a moment the roar of the passing trucks seems to be quieter and the vastness of the landscape feels peaceful. 

Just for a moment...I sit at a picnic table to eat a sandwich, feel the warmth in the air; other travelers, residents go about, lost and absorbed in their inner world. 

And I in mine!

To be or not to be

To understand ones presence in the world.  

To align that understanding beyond ones physical body.  

To see the thoughts and feelings aligned with those thoughts. 

To know that beyond and in between all alignment is a space, a crack.  The space keeps us aligned. 

This "knowing" is the light that filters through the "crack".

Give this light no label and no form, no explanation.  

To go about life with this light on!  Doing what is mine to do...

What is Yoga? The answer within

"Shankra, the commentator on the Upanishads.  Considered the master of non-dualistic doctrine of the universe..."

Spring is here.

The equinox occurs as the sun moves across the celestial equator and the daylight hours become longer. 

I want the light and warmth of the sun.  So I spend the time before the Equinox to clear "my stuff", discard and throw out the doubts and defeating thoughts that will prevent the sunshine to shine, to make my spirits soar.  

Intense it might be, for the lunar eclipse is two days later.  Have the inner discipline, perseverance, and the heart will be gentle and ready to receive, to share.  Each day, each moment will be full of awe and then some - awesome!
