I have no idea what to title this post…maybe because I don’t really know what I am going to write about either. It’s a full moon day here, and the energy is definitely weird…or at least I feel weird. I have 10 days left in Mysore…so 8 practices left with Sharath. I was thinking that I would be really, really sad to be leaving, but I am very at peace with it. In fact, I’m really looking forward to going home. BUT definitely not wishing time away by any means. I know a month from now ill be wishing I was sitting in my favorite spot on my rooftop reading in the warm breeze, so no taking my time left here for granted. Ivana, one of my best friends that I made here, left on Monday. It was emotional but I just have this feeling she will always be apart of my life. I feel so lucky to have met her, whether she knows it or not, she taught me so many things, she was like the big sister I never had.
As far as asana practice goes, things are certainly moving along and I am definitely sore from the new postures, but a good sore haha! I am humbled everyday by my practice and will never take my mat time for granted.
I am sitting down with Sharath this week to ask him a few things, but now it doesn’t seem like I have very much to ask now. While I was reading “Guruji”, I had a bazillion questions but now it seems like they have been answered or I just have faith that they will be. And they probably weren’t ones he could answer anyway. I do still have a few practical ones to ask that aren’t so deep and philosophical.
Anyway, I am definitely ready to get back into the swing of my life back home and excited for what’s in store. I’m also nervous for the new adventures that are coming, but I feel ready. I’m especially nervous about my practice, about keeping it up. Right now I can’t imagine not starting my day on my mat but its much easier to say that here when your day revolves around your asana practice. But I also know the consequences of NOT having a practice, and I am not even gonna go there. It all keeps coming back to faith (and a little discipline), having faith in myself, practice, and God.
I cannot WAIT to see my family and friends, my bed, and to drink straight from the tap lol. Going to take it easy today in this weird energy, relax with a good book, enjoy the sunshine and 85 degree weather, and register for classes 🙂 xo
