Songs have been written about the "Circle of Life" but actually, life doesn't move iu a circle but moves in a spiral, continuously moving in an increased or decreased acceleration. Sometimes you are riding on top of that big wave of life, then there are times you are pulled into a vortex of a waves undertow. If you don't panic, you can ride that wave safety back to the beach, without much damage. One reassuring fact of the spiral, is that no matter how low you go it will never be lower then that last spin into darkness you experienced for a spiral always runs upward. Currently, my health seems to be going into a lower spiral, a cough, slight shortness of breath but far from the dire health condition that caused my lungs to almost completely collapsed. I'm much stronger, I'm back to doing yoga and gaining strength in my body. So this slight set back in health isn't causing me great concern for I feel I can ride this wave back to a safe shore. So my friends, surfs up!
About me? Reminds me of that question one gets on a job interview or a first date -"So tell me about yourself?" Sends chills down my spine. What am I to say? I am wonderful & brillant- now hire me , love me - buy me dinner buy me a drink. I like to see myself as my favorite image, the dancing Shiva. That's me, a dancing Shiva dancing within the circle of cosmic fire the energy of life , birth & distruction with the instruments of creation, music and weapons of war in my hands while balancing one foot in the air and one foot pressing down on ignorance. Life is just a balancing act after all.
