Day 34: You are a sunbeam.

Thursday, April 5, 2012
Mysore
6:30 – 8:30 a.m.

Fantastic practice today. I was able to work on a number of things I'd been thinking about all week in much detail, finding some new keys to unlock the next level of at least two asanas. I'm pretty exhausted though, and am looking forward to 2 days off, tomorrow for the full moon day, and Saturday for our usual day off — although I may sneak in my own practice :-)

It's hard to believe that it's been 18 years since we lost Kurt Cobain so tragically. Contrary to what he might have thought about himself, and what the message of this deceptively sweet and pretty song conveys, I believe that he was a sunbeam, as we all are. His light shone intensely and unbridled, and his music served to heal so many thousands of others. Unfortunately, he didn't stick around long enough to find a way to channel that light into healing himself.

On days like today, I'm so grateful that I've been able to find ways to heal myself, and I live to find ways to help others discover that healing light within themselves.

Something to think about on this Easter weekend. The parable of Christ's crucifixion and resurrection can be interpreted in many ways, but I like to use it as a reminder that we all contain this inherent ability to heal ourselves, our lineages, and our karma. We just need to find techniques to look inward, release blockages and free ourselves from our egoic minds.

For me, it's a multi-faceted approach, and it's taken a lot of searching to find it — and it continues to be a journey — but I've seen (and felt!) the light, and it's powerful. The knowledge that it's inside of me, and not something I need to get from an external source, gives me such great comfort. It's like Clark Kent walking around with that big 'S' underneath his suit. Dude must have had such a swagger. No wonder he landed Lois Lane.

Namaste,
