I have met extraordinary people on the same path and made new friends!
I have embarked once again on a deep spiritual path; rather it is a continuance of the same journey, only reanimated and refreshed!
My body has been rid of toxins and feels energized, restored, revitalized! I needed an impetus to get me back on track and I have that! (All of this comes from within, not from outside, btw!). I have hiked almost daily, (several times a day sometimes), attended asana class, participated in puja every day, (twice when available), eaten lovingly prepared, healthy vegetarian fare, and detoxed from coffee and sugar. I have the determination and will once again to work out daily and be firmer in my dietary habits. I am inspired! I feel like I've shed the dark, stressful, heaviness that has bore down on me this year so that I have the energy to begin running again, and work my way back up to cycling and climbing! I'M excited to renew my Bikram practice as well!
There's more, but I have to run to my last puja before I leave!
It's been the beginning of new friendships and love, and physical end and closure at the same time, a departure from the old and today, from the Ashram, negative habits lost and my Self regained!
I am so grateful that I was able to take this trip and spend this time here! I will return very, very soon!
