The Pilates Post September 19, 2016
On top of the mountains at 7000 feet, I hike at sunset, watching Venus in the West rise in the sky, Mars appear brightly above me with its legend of war, and the Full Moon rises in the East. Literally, I still myself ,FEELING, it is the earth that is turning.
As the galaxies start to appear, my awareness goes up,opens, and looks down, down on the billions of people, and, billions of shit going on in their heads. I try not to take their craziness, or my own, too seriously. Today, saw a coyote, rabbit, hawks, lizards,a variety of birds,fish, insects, but am most affected by the wind as it whirls across the Pacific Coast, gasp as the gold and red leaves float down, and at their reflection on the low water of Big Bear Lake.
Nature and the Universe, the beauty and the Mystery, the senses and the pleasure, we are here for this. The trees are doing just fine, sharing the elements, why can’t we co-exist? These days I enjoy reading old yoga scriptures,practicing kriyas, trying to improve my cooking, watch athletes and children, and even though I have to battle the greedy and the grind, I remind myself, I just had Mass with Papa Francesco, had peace, self- forgiveness, and a wake-up call!
What I have learned and experienced in the real and subtle world…..these I would love to share, to give. Keep looking, not at all the creeps, but at the Creation.
