Happy New Year 2014

I am with my family.There is nothing grand about the welcoming of another year. I just took videos of the fireworks display of the neighboring places then did my meditation/thanksgiving/prayer for all that has been and for all that will be.

I don't have any intention of making any resolutions.That is, at least major ones. I just want to be better,more grounded, more patient, more stable, more centered.

My family, on our holiday trip to Davao
I realized I have grown.I realized my family is just a part of my being but that I still have my own life to take care of. I just need to connect with them because whether I like it or not, they are the ones given to me.

at Namaskar Yoga Shala, taken my Jang
I have met 2 great souls online, both Asthangis at that. I am glad to chat with Andy, an Australian yogi.I like his energy, view of things and life. I like the free flowing conversation.No pretensions. I am also thankful to Jang. Her shala was a gift. After googling for any Asthanga shala, I have found hers. It was a great practice.Great satsang.Great family of hers too. 

I will be going back to Manila in a couple of days. What's in store is not my concern right now. I just want to stay present. Connected.

Happy New year, great souls!

Just saying..

Today is the last day of 2013 in school. I am looking forward to be home this saturday. I don't know what awaits during the holidays but one thing is certain though, i will be home.

While i was at the bus this morning, i allowed my thoughts to look back at the past. I wanted to feel that magic of love to someone who felt the same way. It was good being there... from the very beginning until my heart could not anymore contain the joy. That was the purest,the sweetest, the loveliest. I stopped my thoughts with a sigh knowing that it was then. I long to feel the same way. I long to have a man like him. 

I have grown now and i am still grateful about that love. I am grateful for that man. 

Namaste lovely souls.

Simply ordinary thoughts

Yogins at Denali's First birthday
There is my grateful heart for having met my yogi friends.It's my third year of being an asthangi. I am blessed with good teachers. More than that, I am glad my first teacher came back to journey with me again. I am still loving my Saturdays. I love the simple food, the laughter and the discourses. I love life. I love yoga.There are my students' depth experiences. As I was reading them today, I felt that I was led to penetrate into their very cores. My love for them has grown more in time. They are so human. Pained, tried, broken, bent but loved. I am grateful to have met them.

There is the coming Christmas vacation back home. I am both excited and numb. I am looking forward to go home. May the Universe bless my family with love, forgiveness, peace, joy and wisdom.
    I will park now. A student is waiting online.
