Dearest Lovers :
Here’s a noble thought “ to store in your mind’s treasure chest! (let noble thoughts come to us from every side , said the vedic seers!( How wise they were !) After all, our minds are like computers . They can only hold so much data . If we stuff them with noble thoughts , there will be no space left for all the “stinking stuff” (negative self –pities , etc ).
Here is the thought I found very precious . It was articulated by Albert Einstein (using only 6% of his brain)
"Just because a fish cannot climb a tree does not mean its not smart !"
I love this because it knocks the hell (excuse me!) out of all the condemnations and comparisons we (and others) do to each other day after day . We all have our own talents , our own skills, our own reasons to be (what we can be , yes , We must be! Thank you Abraham Maslow)
I am missing all my little chicks ! (eaglets!) They have literally “flown the coop!) . We had a great six months together and all of us “grew some feathers !) We had many good times, great times ,hard times, fun times,”trudge times “ and “just keep your nose above water times”. The Team 44 was unusually beautiful physically as you can see from photos on face book and Yoga Life!
I was extremely proud of them! They all had lovely “basic character” as well so it was “fertile ground “ for Yoga seed thoughts ! Ananda is also “flying off “ on April 8 for three weeks in the UK ! We will miss him terribly – but – I will think about that tomorrow!
It is hot – getting – hotter and the bones, themselves feel the heat! We do have some time now to reorganize , re think, clean up , throw away – Till the first of May dawns , then again , it is “off to the races “ ! Summer is hectic with city centre Yoganjali Natyalayam activity.
I ) May Intensive : daily classes 2:30 to 7:30 at city centre for 100 children .
II) May Intensive Valedictory Programme (All kids show what they learned in month ! four hour extravaganza!
III) Three day Residential camp for 70 kids – teachers at ICYER (Whew!)
IV) Annual Day : July 7-8 – 400 Kids on stage dancing , singing, doing Yoga from 2 pm to Midnight.
V) This year Sept 6 – 16 celebration of Amma’s 70 th birthday. About 60 – 70 persons from abroad expected and several hundred locals !
Why , O why, do we do all this ! Don’t ask me ! I don’t know ! Ask the Guru! He makes us grow! Much love to you all! Be cheerful ! That is your (my) duty!
P.S : Here is another “noble thought to add to your collection , this is an old Arabian proverb :
A fool is known by six things ;
1. Anger without cause
2. Speech without profit
3. Change without progress
4. Inquiry without object
5. Putting trust in a stranger
6. Mistaking foe for friend
Let’s all … Keep going , throughout the slush, Throughout the rain, under the merciless blazing sun ! One step , two steps , one step , two steps … slow but steady , we win the “human race”!
Yours affectionately in Yoga,
Yogacharya Dr Ananda Balayogi Bhavanani
