Spiritual Paradox - June 2016
As I was reflecting on and writing this month's blog post, The Hawk and the Gopher (see below), I was reminded of the reality of spiritual paradox.
Paradox is the fact that life is both-and. It's Light and Shadow, both necessary, one not better than the other, and providing contrast to illuminate each other. Life is the daily to-do list as well as spiritual inspiration. Ultimately, the paradox of the spiritual path unites the opposites into oneness.
Meanwhile, since I'm not yet in the ultimate Oneness, I'm still sorting out how to keep everything in balance, to navigate the weaving of the mundane and the inspired. Are you? Especially when so many ideas flow my way, the discernment to choose what speaks most to me is essential to my well-being, and to let go of anything unnecessary.
So, what is speaking most to me right now? Writing my book, and creating more events to inspire and uplift others. Which is why I am returning to teaching some yoga! Yes, I will be offering a Monthly Morning Yoga & Meditation class (MMYM) the 3rd Friday of each month, starting in July! I'd love to see you there - check out the details below.
And please do join me for a yoga philosophy class at the Yoga Expo, Santa Clara, on Sunday, July 24th. It will be free as part of a whole day of yoga from local teachers around the Bay Area.
For now, enjoy my musings on this play of spiritual paradox in my blog post, below. Are you holding the both-and in your life? And what is speaking most to you right now?
