I am feeling so much gratitude in my heart right now.

Gratitude towards my Gurus and teachers, towards my family, towards my friends and towards my Yoga community.

Taking refuge in LOVE and TRUTH has been my main focus and it has brought me to my knees so many times.

 I feel very little and humbled by the ennourmous flow of Grace that springs from the Source towards me and my life and I feel like shouting it out and sharing it with you.

My consistent practice of chanting the holy names; dancing to the divine in form and freely; communing with my brothers and sisters, assisting and supporting my friends; practicing Yoga; appreciating the elements of Nature and noticing how their balance affects my well-being; simply BEING in contemplation and prayer; and ultimately accepting what flows into my life and allowing myself to be part of the divine leela (play) that has been set for me, amazes me, and keeps me fresh and present daily.

Playing, working and praying are the same for me.

Living my life aware that any & every opportunity that comes my way is an opportunity to evolve spiritually is my main intention for this New Year.

One Love Revolution.

Happy 2016!!!!!

Now is the Time

by Hafiz

Now is the time to know

That all that you do is sacred.

Now, why not consider

A lasting truce with yourself and God.

Now is the time to understand

That all your ideas of right and wrong

Were just a child’s training wheels

To be laid aside

When you finally live

With veracity

And love.

Hafiz is a divine envoy

Whom the Beloved

Has written a holy message upon.

My dear, please tell me,

Why do you still

Throw sticks at your heart

And God?

What is it in that sweet voice inside

That incites you to fear?

Now is the time for the world to know

That every thought and action is sacred.

This is the time

For you to compute the impossibility

That there is anything

But Grace.

Now is the season to know

That everything you do

Is sacred.
