Hindus have a beautiful belief that what you do on the first day of the year sets the tone for your spiritual practice for the year. Here is a snap shot of how 2012 manifested for me:
A friend and I headed over to the Hare Krishna Temple for 12 hours of Kirtan and Puja, it was insaine! before we even got to the temple we stopped off at one of the wonderful little hindu trinket shops and walked out with slippers, bindis and bangles! lol!!! feeling a little peckish from the Hare Rama chanting and dancing we dashed over to the Sikhs restaurant for a quick bowl of dal and naan. It was so delicious! I received a kind pat on the head from the large fatherly Sikh who said to me "Bless you my child" I knew right then and there is was on course with destiny for 2012. From there we went over to Sivananda Vedanta Center for Sunday satsang - more meditation, chanting, and socializing with sangha.
I woke up Monday morning feeling energized, made an appointment for a 2012 Vedic Reading. I'm please to announce that like a snake I have shed my skin and come into my own, uncertainty is a thing of the past.
Tomorrow night I have a meeting with Swamiji to assess my current practice. Yes, the planets have aligned and how nice it is to be.... just Be!
