Yoga this Week – January 6, 2019

 

Happy New Year dear Yoga Students,

We had a wonderful time at the Kirtan last Friday night and I was amazed how free and happy I felt the next day!  The energy has stayed with me all weekend.  I was particularly taken with the moment we chanted to “our struggles” during Hari Om Tat Sat which translates as we bow to the truth of all that is sacred.  Our struggles are part of our sacred path.  Just like moving into the darkness from Autumn Equinox to Winter Solstice, it is part of the sacred cycle of our lives to move in and out and forward and back again.  Hopefully we learn to grow,  to leave behind what doesn’t serve us, take with us the lessons and honor the journey.  Here we are, beautiful yogi’s, at the start of a brand new year.  May you all and all beings find peace within your darkness and may we all honor the ever increasing light together as we travel this life together.

On Children

Kahlil Gibran

Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts, For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth. The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far. Let our bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness; For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.

 Happy Mother’s Day Dearest Yoga Students,

Whether you are a mother, grandmother, son or daughter – we all have something wonderful to celebrate today; unconditional love.  Think about that term for a minute.  The Wikipedia definition is:  Unconditional Love   is a term that means to love someone regardless of one’s actions or beliefs.  Unconditional love separates the individual from her or his behaviors. The individual is loved unconditionally as a “perfect” child of the Higher Power.

Revel in what it feels like to be loved without conditions, without judgement with pure loving kindness for who you are.   Focus on the gratitude you have for all the mothers in your life past and present;  your birth mother, a friend, a sister, a diety, a mentor …and then recycle all the love you have been given as an offering to the universe.  Meditate on the amazing creation of life and the cycles that continue on and on and on.  Sa Ta Na Ma…Life, Death, Rebirth and Infinity. 
“A Mother’s Love need not be Deserved” 
Erich Fromm

Glowing Energy in Miller Place

Join us as we send out positive energy into a world that so desperately needs it. Amy on Harmonium, Annalee on Mandolin and Jim on percussion will lead original compositions of sacred chants meant to clear the mind, body and spirit of clutter and negative energy. Chanting (or simply being present and listening) connects us not only to each other as community but is said to call down powerful spiritual energy to connect us to a power beyond this world. Chanting is healing, uplifting and meditative. No vocal or chanting experience necessary. All are welcome!! Let go of your inhibitions and tap into the divine flow of sacred Chant!

$25 per person as well as a non-perishable item for donation to those in need.
