Lessons of a Yogini #13
The past few months, my life has been swept up in a whirlwind of change. This time of deep introspection has brought awareness of these very real polarizing energies at play- not just within ourselves but also in our communities and even cosmically. A high and a low…one cannot exist without the other, as they equally shape the outlines of the same circle.
In August, I sat in a field with 60,000 other people in Oregon and watched the moon eclipse the sun in totality. I’ve seen the polarity in our people, this division bred by ignorance and fear spewed out into an over abundance of technological triggers and stimulus. I was there when my best friend gave birth to the sweetest baby boy and then, five days later coped with the reality of my grandmother dying, my numero uno lady in life.
Through all this beautiful chaos, I’ve had time to sit back in many moments of aloneness to focus on what I am being shown. Life gives us the clues, if we are but aware enough to piece them together. What am I being asked to look at? What am I learning? The more I’ve silently observed, the clearer Ive been able to see what is ready to live and what is ready to die. That is, after all, an integral part of the reconnection process to our Wildish nature- to understand the polarities and the cycles of life. ⚪⚫
