You are the light that shines in this world. Allow yourself to open to the light shining through you. The most wondrous things happen when you let yourself TRULY BE yourself. When you let go of anyone else’s opinion of you. When you awaken to your true nature. The limitless, irreplaceable person you are. NO ONE is like you. So march to the beat of your own dang drum!!! Wear your hair, your clothes, your very SKIN the way you desire. Think what you desire to think, believe what you desire to believe. Do what feeds your soul. Be brave and the world steps up to greet you with open arms. You ARE THE LIGHT. With love, Sat Nam.
Well, I started my book about 6 months ago and I was all set to go!!! I had a title, the subject matter and even had a publisher!
I got a bit side tracked with studying for my Spiritual Practitioner written test and oral panel for my licensing.
Then getting my son ready to go away for the summer.
A few other twists and turns and the book took a decided back seat.
Finally, I realized it just didn’t resonate with me and that was some of the challenge. SO I blessed it and let it go.
I just let it be and, lo and behold, the stories began pouring into me last week. The style that I prefer to write in, the subject matter….and I can even picture the art work.
I read an excerpt to a friend, whom I asked to be very, very honest and she loved it. She pictured it like I did.
SO I am on my way again- this time easily and effortlessly. Telling the story of my world in bits and bites.
I am completely relaxed about it. I am not writing it, it is being written for me and I just stay open to it.
NOW for the title.
I am certain that comes to me exactly the same way I was inspired to write the book.
Let it go and let it flow like water.
What is KIRTAN you ask? According to Wikipedia: “Kirtan or kirtana ( Punjabi: ਕੀਰਤਨ, Sanskrit: “praise, eulogy”; also sankirtan) is call-and-response chanting or “responsory” performed in India’s bhakti devotional traditions. A person performing kirtan is known as a kirtankar. Kirtan practice involves chanting hymns or mantras to the accompaniment of instruments such as the harmonium, tablas, the two-headed mrdanga or pakawaj drum, and karatal hand cymbals. It is a major practice in Vaisnava. devotionalism, Sikhism, the Sant traditions, and some forms of Buddhism, as well as other religious groups.” I just call it FUN!!! What is better than drumming and dancing and singing in a safe and supported environment??!!
Instead of labeling things, situations, circumstances, other’s behavior, life experiences “GOOD” or BAD” I have been guided to look at it this way – “Well, that was interesting!”, and then go about your day. Non-attached…an observer in your own life. Sat Nam!
In our lives we do have relationship challenges. And one of the best things I learned from my teacher, Dr. Maxine Kaye, was don’t resist, react, act out, push, pull simply say this “I bless them and send them on their way.” Easy, neat, clean, loving and non-attached. Their way my not be your way or even in your “stratosphere” but you send them along with an open heart and mind.

In Joy! Sat Nam, Namaste!
Although in the physical realm my beloved teacher, Yogi Bhajan, is no longer here, I sense his spirit all the time. In my email today from one of the websites I subscribe to, was a quote from him. It was so perfect. It was an answer for me. One I had been challenged with for some time now. It said “If you want to learn something, read about it. If you want to understand something, write about it. If you want to master something, teach it.” - Yogi Bhajan
This couldn’t be more true…at least for me. What about you?
Have a beautiful day! SAT NAM, NAMASTE, BLESSINGS!
