It has been a while since I have regularly posted on my blog. So here’s my reflection of key events that affect my view of the present moment.
First, I completed my meditation teacher training with the American Meditation Society with formal initiation occurring during the annual Summer Course that was held in Aston, PA at the beginning of July. I hope to share the gift of meditation with others as the benefits we get are many. It is interesting to note that we meditate not for the few minutes we are in meditation but for the rest of the time we are not in meditation.
Second, in June, after a year of looking for work in the field I know most about, the defense industry, and not finding anything that would not require me to move, I paused my efforts to focus on my upcoming attendance at the American Meditation Society Summer Course. When I returned home I decided to not look for work opportunities any further in the defense industry and I began to change my focus to developing my skills and abilities as a yoga instructor. It is uncanny, but in July I applied for and was hired as a yoga studio manager for Tribal Yoga, a new studio opening in the Hampton Roads area of southeast Virginia starting in September. I know the owners, very cool people, and this opportunity will help me learn the nuts and bolts of running a studio so I can open my own a few years from now when my wife and I move back to Texas. I also am one of the staff instructors so I can improve and develop my teaching skills and abilities while serving as the studio manager. Six months ago I would have not anticipated this, but having an intention and focusing energy on that intention can give surprising results.
For Labor Day weekend, I will be attending the Floyd Yoga Jam near Willis, VA which will be a 3-day festival of yoga, meditation and music. I have never been to a big yoga gathering and I am looking forward to this experience. I hope to experience a lot of shakti flowing during the event!
May the light in us all shine upon the path of our journey where the mind, body and spirit become one in peace both internally and externally where we can experience and enjoy the stillness that exists in everything.
OM Shanti Shanti Shanti
