K is Boss, I am Das
The above phrase is something I expressed several times today, in a morning class, at an evening class—Tuesday sangha—and in the afternoon on a trail.
K refers to Krishna. Dasin Sanskrit, means servant. Put it all together and you have words of truth. "Krishna is boss and I am das."
Jay, Connor and I drove up to Tottenham to visit a family of farmers. We drove north to offer some encouragement to Vishal and Yasomati who have started an agro/eco initiative involving gir and guernsey cows/bulls, and horses, as well. Together we sat down to discuss this spring's farmers conference which will be held in Quebec, just outside of Montreal, and is scheduled for Saturday May 18th, 2019. We pulled ideas together with action plans. It will be our third year doing a spring gathering. It will be inspirational.
After our sit-down planning, we braved “The Great Trail,” (formerly called the "Trans Canada Trail") from Tottenham, north to the farm in Caledon. I used the word "braved" because on the seven kilometre stretch which we trekked, where there were cedar trees, the sun was restricted, leaving lengthy ice patches. Once we came to the areas of hardwoods, rays of warmth melted the snow.
The very good thing about taking to patches of ice is that it reminds us we are very vulnerable. We are not in charge. We are not the controller. There are greater things than ourselves. We are small—small but significant; that is when we admit to having a great boss and we are His servant. We are Das. I am Das.
