The Right Times Guruji used to say, “every where looking, god seeing.” What a truly difficult task that is to look in the eyes of a stranger and see the divine. What an even more difficult task it is to look in the eyes of an enemy and see something sacred. I read on the internet next to fancy asana postures, I listen to others speak at great length and with such jargon, I hear accounts of so many about what “yoga” means… But really, what do any of us know what it means to live one’s life free from the attachment of the fruits of our labor, to still one’s mind and free it from wandering fluctuations, or to yoke and bind one’s individual awareness to the all pervading conciousness of the universe… I cannot begin to speak on such feats of strength and compassion for with every passing day I feel more like a babe in the woods, more like a lost traveler without map or compus.
