Heal This Land

People who have walked this path before us have a great deal to teach us.  For centuries healing has occurred in the family, the community, and the village.

Here are the questions they ask to inspire healing:
1.  When in your life did you stop singing?
2.  When in your life did you stop dancing?
3.  When did you stop being enchanted with story?
4.  When did you stop exploring the uncomfortable, but sweet, territory of silence?

What would happen if we asked ourselves these questions, and waited in the silence to the answers?

Could we heal this land?  I believe we could, we can, and we will.  Together.

The fires are burning.

So often we hear beautiful mantras in yoga classes.  Sung by Wah!, Deva Premal, Krishna Daas, and so many other devoted yogis.  Here is a translation of one of the most famous mantras for your enjoyment and enlightenment :)

The Gayatri Mantra

OM bhur bhuvah svaha
Tat savitur varenyam
Bhargo devasya di mahi
dhiyo yo nah prachodayat

(translated in English)
May the glory of Light that illuminates the world
Seen and unseen
Realize the unyielding power, love, radiance, and divine grace 
Of universal intelligence.
And may we pray for this same divine light 
to illumine our minds.
