We're keeping it mellow tonight...
There is a passage from the Bhagavad Gita that is very dear to me, it was committed to memory a long, long time ago. Tonight I spent a little time looking around my blog archives wondering if I've ever shared it here before. It doesn't seem to have been written here yet, though I did come across this post.
Never without a map to navigate.
That post and this photo brought tears immediately, so easy to do these days. There should be some kind of automated warning Typepad issues when it senses a blogger sifting through their archives on the most nostalgic of evenings, some kind of a proceed with caution alert.
I truly miss my beloved in house yoga studio, with all of it's open space and nag champa and no shoes allowed sacredness. Indeed, I do. Currently it is my sewing studio. It has also served as a homeschool room... but looking at this photo brought up so much for me, I think I really need this space cleared and held sacred again. I can sew in the basement, I've done it before. Anyway, lot's to ponder... this could be a very good thing. So, those words I mentioned...
The man who sees me in everything
and everything within me
will not be lost to me, nor
will I ever be lost to him .
He who is rooted in oneness
realizes that I am
in every being; wherever
he goes; he remains in me.
When he sees all beings as equal
in suffering or in joy
because they are like himself,
that man has grown perfect in yoga.
~ Bhagavad Gita [6.30-32]
