In the End/Good Landing

Goodbye to Mauritius, it’s been absolutely delicious.  A final visit to the beach which was a jewel crowned place for my stay.  Now, I’ve been well on my way by air and catching up on things.  For instance, I’m nearing completion on reading the book, “Guru and Disciple Book” by author, Kripamoya Das.  A sentence struck my fancy, “Srila Prabhupada (our guru), once told a follower that the disciple should have a relationship of ‘good friends’ with a guru, but the job of the guru was to occasionally remind the disciple, ‘Who is the disciple and who is the guru’.  I’m also catching up on mundane news. There’s a lot said by Donald Trump, and there’s a lot said about Donald Trump, but this is not news.

More from the extreme extremists, Isis:  they have recently sent a five minute video proclaiming London, Berlin, and Rome, as prime targets after the murderous attacks on Paris and Brussels.  The speaker in the video is quoted saying, “Nations of the cross, this message is for you.  Your options are few.  Either join Islam, or pay tribute, or face the war.”

That is chilling to hear.

Conclusion on the mundane stuff is that we are in a world of turmoil, threat, and terror.  Can anybody calm down out there?  How about some pranayam, breathing, so that we can ease up?  What about some asanas, stretch poses?  Maybe we can reach beyond the impossible.  There’s also chanting that is there to ease and to please.

May the Source be with you!
