It had just passed midnight, and my plan to sleep was a flop. I just got myself a body scrub of ground coffee & coconut oil, i am wide awake if the caffeine is working through my skin pores right now.
From my bedroom window, i can still hear my local neighbours having a serious conversation for the past one hour, and still going strong... The dogs in our neighbourhood seems like having a gang-meeting every night howling their trash out...( i'm adjusting to it).
Cheers to Moon day tomorrow, i can afford to stay up late.
Have you ever been in a conversation with someone that time is lost by itself? That's probably the most beautiful moment that i appreciate. I call this moment of vacuum--- tick-tocking loses its presence, and everything we are engaging in is simply in the present.
For this, i have to agree with Mitch Albom " I prefer clocks broken." in his book The Time Keeper.
This is probably my intention for this trip to Mysore.
For sure i am different person today, as compared to who i was when i first came to Mysore in 2009.
As Sharath mentioned in one of his yoga conference, " Everyone comes to Mysore with different reasons and intentions." I agree.
My underlying intentions in each trip i made changes as i grow over the years.
Earlier, it was more of exploration, fun and exciting. This time, i feel different--- i want to laser beam into my practice and learning to be appreciative with the whole experience and the relationships i build here.
I become selective for whatever i am putting my energy into.
Constructive engagements i call.
Activities and conversation that may grow me into a better person than i am now.
Share with me something that i don't know, i'm interested to know.
Yes, i do meet some great people here who build conducive relationships to create positive ripples. Some practice yoga, and quite a big handful do not--- something that i really love about.
You can't be without people. You can't be with people~ Sadhguru
I'm very pro to the idea of being able to invest some time alone for ourselves.
That's the time when most external distractions quieten down, the silence seeps into us and we listen to our own voice.
I'm a people person but first i learn to check out what kind of person i am----
That happens when i spend enough time knowing myself.
Because, i do not wish to having friends as being each other hole-fillers.
I prefer friendships and relationships that nurture one another a better person that we first met:)
