on time

i have just returned back from a 4 week sabbatical. there were days of contemplation, days where the whole day was spent in pajamas, days where i had nothing planned, days where i cared for others, and a day when i knew it was time to return to my tree house in washington, d.c. 


i feel very much at peace. a sort of full acceptance that everything is temporary anyway, so what's the big deal? where before i would get so upset with myself for not knowing what i want to do with my one-wonderful-life, now i just take it one day at a time. and let my one-wonderful-life reveal to me what it would like to do today. 


this life is a gift. time is a gift. the privilege to use time as currency every day is a gift. if we were more open in the way life leads us, imagine all the surprises we would find!


i am still taking a teaching sabbatical, but join me for private instruction on monday's, you can reserve your spot here. 

satsang this month will be held on august 27, coffee, discourse, and pastries to follow.


i hope you are enjoying the warm sun loving on your skin. sunday morning pancakes. and all the surprises. and while time may not heal all wounds, it certainly does make things more clear.


big love,
