"I would not exchange the laughter of my heart for the fortunes of the multitudes; nor would I be content with converting my tears, invited by my agonized self, into calm. It is my fervent hope that my whole life on this earth will ever be tears and laughter".
~Kahlil Gibran

Have been feeling so much better since writing that last post. I've always had the hardest time with calming my mind in savasana; the whole "acknowledge each thought and let it pass, as a cloud," kinda thing. It's just rarely worked for me. Well, I acknowledged many of my difficult thoughts in that last post, and they have passed... Just like those clouds.

Many thanks to everyone who commented. I was so surprised and humbled by the reflectiveness, honesty, and compassion that came though. :)


  1. So glad to hear you're feeling better. When we hold our frustrations inside, they only manifest, and drain us of our energy. By letting our frustrations out into the open, we no longer give our frustrations the power to make us unhappy. And indeed, with time, the negative thoughts will pass.

  2. Lz said it--glad you're doing better. And I'm surprised, too, by how compassionate people usually are in responding. Must be the nature of most the yoginis out there! What a supportive crowd. But that's the way it should be, right?

  3. Thank YOU for sharing. We are just the lucky recipients. :)
