Here's the quote that mentions my blog, "Subjects range from the philosophical (brookshall.blogspot.com)..." Aaaah, my blog has been seen as philosophical, how great!
The traditional yogic texts like the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, the Upanishads, and the Bhagavad Gita offer tools to help us navigate our inner worlds--something we desperately need in troubled times, such as ours. The journey that being alive presents isn't always easy... Nor is it supposed to be. We live in a world of opposing forces, and our job (the way I see it) is to maintain balance in all this, and to do what is right even when it is not easy. The practice of yoga, and studying about it is a medicine for me. It helps me to be at home in my life.
I've been mentioning my inclusion in the magazine to students. Some of them have clapped, and everybody seems happy for me. I'm also sure that some are indifferent, and some colleagues are jealous. It's part of the richness of life that everybody expresses and reacts differently. So I'd like to thank everybody who is happy for me, and I want to thank those who are indifferent to my writing yet enjoy my yoga classes. I also want to honor those who react with sourness and resentment for those emotions have taught me so much about where I need healing, and helped to point me toward the work I need to do.
