Celebrating New Year in Kerala at Amma's ashram
Spending 4 amazing, challenging and crazy months in India - from kerala to Tamil Nadu to Rajistan to Varanasi to Vrindavan, where every day is so filled with impressions - living in India for 4 months is like living somewhere else for 10 years.
circle of friends - totally changed.
planted 3 apple trees in the last month!
My least favorite animals - Vrindavan monkeys.
My most favorite - doodles, a mix of Golden retriever and a poodle :)

Fri, Sep 17, from yoga nidra to Kol Nidre
lightbugirka
oooh, Friday of Yom Kippur, it coincised with Shabbath and we are doing an amazing workhop clearing Manipura - our power center - with Mona...

evening - off to Kol Nidre ceremony with rabbi selecting a topic of his speech as "What is love"...
He centers it around imperfections - noone is perfect, either us or Gd - since he created imperfect us.
To love another is to be enthusiastic about his imperfections. To look at him with 2 eyes - one you see a person as he is, anotehr - you see him as what he can become.

Yoga classes led by your friends are a treat - you know a person, know how much he is giving...
And new things you hear open the heart up on a different level, and can change so much.
My favorite quote from my friend: "We are always grounded, even though we live in the city. Proof of that - gravity - if you have any doubts - feel it."

And then class of 8 people where we had 4 instructors, our senior teacher and 3 of us assisting, felt like family work. :)

Life blogging & inner tuning
lightbugirka
After I left corporate world and went free flowing started September every day is filled with so many wonderful things that it's a shame not to start blogging again...

Went for inner tuning appointment yesterday - Shyami Ji (www.innertuning.com) reads the state of your chakras - and for advanced practitioners it means your past and current state - with his fingers.

Dinner serving at Ammas
lightbugirka
Karma yoga is big at Ammas... Though we do karma yoga daily in our lives - from chatting to a friend who is down to writing blogs :)

Serving food is the best karma yoga, the gesture of giving, the sharing... I wanted to serve salads - was I put there? Nope... Serving brown rice (in the second line!) was my thing... Problem with it? It was next to a lady who was serving cool mexican spicey rice, so 1 out of 25 customers felt like brown rice... Plus that woman had the biggest mouth on the line, advertising her rice and passing 'down' the customers... My leo's ego felt bruised... Also, my early childhood was spent like this - I was not allowed to go to kindergarden that much, so had to communicate with adults who came to visit my mom... Was bored and felt very in shadow of my mom... Though that made me freaking try to impress kids when I went to kindergarden once in 3 weeks - I was the first kid who brought money to show those funny paper adults care about, came up with avoiding sleeping by passing a wink down the line of beds, etc...

So, after some time accepting the brown rice placement, I made my move by saying the lady can probably handle both rices, and went to serve delicious chips... It was not salad, was dry and not cooked, but was good enough... A girl next to me was serving salad... Pretty soon I noticed she started saying her hand is too tired from passing heavy plates (salad is at the end of food line), of course I suggested we can switch as placing a few light chips on the plate is different.

When I suggested I didn't care if I served salad any more... So, of course, we have switched. Now I was serving salad feeling peaceful about doing or not doing it... Aaah, Universe's rules :)

So after some time new people came to replace us tired and hungry, we had lunch ourselves and having free time I came back to serve - now I didn't care what to do and could do anything, I had my salad wish fulfilled... At the end most of the people got tired, 2 of us stayed - and we didn't have a long queue - so I was serving chips, salad, sour cream and cheese (feel taco day?) moving from container to container...

let it all go... enjoy... the wish will get fulfilled when it's time - this or next life time or will get modified to smth better for you... but also act as if it's already fulfilled, will free you up... my new mantra...

Joke ot not? :)

What is love?
lightbugirka
Very interesting on our favorite topic:
http://www.aish.com/d/w/48952241.html

Looking for any solutions...
lightbugirka
outside of yourself leads to disappointments...
Once you find it in you, it's always in you... Though it will not cover all problems, so it's a constant search and expansion...
The rest - meditations, people, meetings, friends - just to help us root more in ourselves...

I met a russian lady shaman in India... She was diagnosed with an incurable desease, with noone to help her she was led to believe in herself. As she puts it:" the energy started flowing through her." She healed herself... She still keeps healing, now other people...

Her words of wisdom - look for your own way... Not repeat yoga way... Or a certain philosophy... Incorporate and... Look for your own way...

Local trains & russian girls in India...

I still can not believe it...
When going to country and accepting all of it, all rules and traditions, the country starts to help you wherever you are via its people...

Taking a train from Rishikesh to New Delhi - total time of the journey - 7 hours, with a quick layover in Haridwar during Kumbh Mela...

That's what I didn't account for - Kumbh Mela... With Indian population of 1,147,995,904(5,6,7... :), we met about 1,111,111,111 at Kumb Mela...

Брррр....

Океан съёжился от холода и отступил... Волнорезы оказались грудой камушек выложенных на песке. Они забавными клешнями обнимают бухты. Летом там будет плескаться вода, стихия... А сейчас океан, как рак, залез под серо-голубую морозную воду. Солнце стучится к нему холодными лучами, но это не то солнце которое делает его дерзким и диким - и пока нет ответа... Мы ждём весну...
