I wondered if my Asianess or lack thereof, had anything to do with my life choices and spiritual journey, I was searching for more answers, more healing, more understanding... just more. Do you relate? Have you felt like this? Have you had questions that rise up round your “Asianness” and “Americanness”?
I am leaving today for a trip to Boaco, Nicaragua to visit Clinica Verde a global healthcare organization with a holistic and sustainable approach. They provide clinical care, nutrition, and health education to their cherished patients. But above all they are building a community health center that is ethical, sustainable, innovative, and compassionate.
This month it's important for us to slow down our breath and let peace, love and inner harmony grow within us. Sangeet, my teacher, shares that Yoga Master Yogi Bhajan often describe how our heads are so full that our hearts are empty. When we keep our thoughts from consuming our minds it allows our hearts to fill up so that we may share with the universe and others from a deep place of tranquility and peace. We accomplish this through slowing down our breath.
This month is a time for walking the true spiritual path of love through creating sacred space for yourself and others, speaking kind words, sharing smiles, showing kindness and love to each other. Without showing love and compassion for yourself and others you will become weak over time, weakening your immune system, stressing your nervous system, and eventually breaking your mind.
