I am thankful
Oh what a journey it is - this life. How enlightening it has been to introduce a new world of learning and growing at The Vidya Centre. I see more than ever how important my daily practice is, and how dramatically it impacts everything I do. I see the value of moving out of a comfort zone and into unchartered territory. Delving into crevices, nooks, and crannies of relationships, people, business, trajectories, foresight, time management and how it all relates to one another. Each morning I arise to greet a new day as a gift. I sit quietly in meditation to pull the weeds of the garden of my mind. These weeds that may impede my progress - both personally and professionally. Oh what a process to observe the mind, the ego, the thoughts that swirl and churn and fight for top priority in the mind. What an amusing sideshow the human monkey mind can be!
Thank goddess for mindfulness. Thank goddess for conscious awareness --for the precious food that feeds our heartspace. Thank goddess for love, for goodness and sharing. Thank goddess for friendships and heart to heart connections. I am thankful for the love that abounds. Not my love, not your love, just the purity of LOVE. That love is what we all connect to. That love is what each of us clings to in lonely moments. That love is our birthright. And that love will be there for you when you are ready to receive it.
All of this to say that I am thankful for being thrust into the position to steward the mission of the Vidya Centre. I am thankful for the strong and brilliant souls who are in board with me. I am thankful for the tools I have acquired over the years to help keep the ship from steering wayward. I am thankful for all of you who care enough to read my words. I am thankful for the community that we are building around us. Let us continue to grow, learn, and be together.
