"It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it..but it's also true that we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives." (unknown source)
This has been my mantra over the last few days, as SSY winds down to closing. This last week of teaching classes has been soooooo amazing. The tears were flowing as was the laughter for you and me both! Thank you all for showing up and reminding me that while the walls may come down, the spirit of SSY remains, blissfully intact and stronger than ever! While time may pass between our next reunion, on or off the mat, the soul does not keep track, nor is it governed by the passage of time-the karmic connection we have with one another endures, eternally. Those of you who came into practice on tuesday night, I know for sure that those flickering of the lights three times during our practice was my father's spirit, playfully reminding us to never doubt the wisdom of the things we can not see, nor touch and to trust that the Universe has a mysterious way of guiding us towards exactly what we need.
This transition is just another one of life's beautiful message to let go into the mystery of the unknown. Trust that you are being divinely guided, by seen and "unseen" forces. In trusting, we can ride that freak wave that comes out of nowhere and enjoy the ride...who knows, maybe it will be the greatest wave we ever caught, maybe it will take each one of us all the way hOMe. We might eat it and get a little busted up. Whatever the outcome, lets all remind ourselves, that if we stay in the moment, what comes next is most likely, exactly where we need to be.
I hold you in my heart.
Now, go get your surfboard and enjoy the day!
