YOGA: My Whole Life in 7 Boxes

Starting again. New Life. New City.  7 boxes in the garage, that is my life down there.

I take what I need when I need it. I am blessed to have friends that put me up in their home and opened their hearts.

I’ve known my friends for 30 years. They came to my home when they started from zero as well, in New York a long time ago.

There is something exciting about starting again. It is very difficult, but it is a new learning curve. How to survive, get an income a job a bed or a room or a studio.

Yoga: How Do You Slow Down?

A huge ray of light hit the building at 3:00 AM and the tropical storm woke me up.  No sense in going back to bed.

Thunder

I am writing now with my father’s Parker. A beauty.

But a slow beauty.   The thing moves alongside the page very slowly, ink flowing down into the paper, word by word.

Sometimes I can anticipate a sentence, but most of the time we are in a word-by-word basis, she and me. If I rush it all becomes illegible, a garabato, a mess.

Yoga: Four Ways To Unveil The Truth

We are all one, we just have different accents.

Unveil the Truth

Unveil the Truth

But I realize understanding we are all one is not easy.  We are pre-programmed to think I am am me and you are you.

No such thing I’m afraid, not when we are able to unveil the truth

Have I? NO, no way, my veil seems tight and needs some grease and grace to open up.  I am as blind as I am willing to open the divine veil so I can see clear now.

The rain is gone.

Here are ten ways to unveil the truth:

You are the one, and so am I.… Read the rest

Yoga: I’m Here

We talk about planes, my brother, Mariano,  and me.

Yesterday in Benavidez I found my father’s captain bag, the one where he kept flying charts, notes, manuals with notes.  It smells like the 70’s and feels delicate.

It is black and rectangular in shape. It has stickers on the outside, one for Austral Airlines,  one from Japan, a red dot.  My dad was a captain.

It feels like family: rotten yet exciting.

Mariano, tells me about a show on the radio where they analyze plane crashes.  I don’t want to hear that. I adore airplanes.

“A Mythological Being” I said

Captain Hanks looked at me. … Read the rest
