A Pause
       June 2018 to January 2019

In May 2018 I was pulled inward on yet another spiral in the helix of self-examination, completion and growth. This time triggered by an incident with my work circle that invited me to face the attachments I had. To the A Course of Love community. And to the expectations of the role I had hoped to play. It was time to free myself and return me to myself. These seven months took me deeply within and culminated in month long trip to Singapore and Malaysia in November/December 2018 where I was born and grew up (K-12). There, I walked all the places where I had felt least safe. And spent time with all the people with whom I'd felt most safe. It was a sacred time of reclaiming my toddler, child, teenager and maiden selves. Re-membering who I am. And coming to acceptance, forgiveness, peace, and deep gratitude for all the whirlwinds and ferocious tsunamis that had landed me in the here and now. Feeling amazing I Launched Indra's Net of Jewels. And it did not escape my notice that the Tamil middle name given to me by my father is Indraranee!


Mothers, Compassion, and Peas
       May 13, 2018

“A human being is a part of a whole, called by us ‘universe’, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest . . . a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” — Albert Einstein

Who out there remembers seeing this quote in my Networks Systems Engineering presentations in the 80's?🙂 Today as some of us celebrate Mother's Day, let's bring a mother's tenderness, compassion and acceptance home to ourselves. When we feel a disturbance of any kind let's pause, breathe, and notice —
--✿ How am I feeling?
--✿ Can I stay with feeling my feelings?
--✿ What is it I don't like?
--✿ Can I let that be what it is for now?
--✿ And let go the need to judge it right or wrong?
--✿ Can I simply accept that I don't like it?
--✿ And feel compassion for myself right now?
--✿ “Do you judge peas if you do not like them?” — A Course of Love

Try it and see how it transforms your relationship with people and things around you. After all we're responsible only for our own feelings, responses and actions. And that for me is a 24/7 job! 😳

Living Loving Laughing
       April 24, 2018

It's been a long dark winter yet here we are again in the gentle warmth and beautiful colors of Spring — finally😄 Feeling grateful and inspired to be fully present and savor every moment. What does that even mean?

In all we do today, wherever we are, whomever we're with let's —
--✿ feel each human touch sight sound smell taste and feeling
--✿ open our hearts remember the infinite beings we also are
--✿ feel the ocean of love supporting you connecting all things
--✿ respond with gratitude and a smile
Rinse and repeat ...

Loving makes Living meaningful and fun!

Thank you iPad and fingers ... 💜
