CatchLight – afternoon stroll

Leave a comment

Being a Lawyer means I get to read and/or write a LOT. This could be reviewing contracts, drafting them, researching various subjects for preparing opinions, etc. All this also means that you sit a LOT. I sit in a car to get to work, take one flight of stairs, get to office, and sit at my desk, sit in a car and go back home. The only time I am not sitting is when I get call in for meetings, which don’t happen as often.

As you can imagine, my lifestyle isn’t the most healthy one. Of course I practice yoga every day, I meditate, I get off my seat and stretch every hour, walk every chance I get, and it still doesn’t feel like its enough. So I have adopted an afternoon stroll, just to work up a sweat and get my body moving, and it feels great. Of course, there are busy days when I have five minutes to scarf down my lunch and continue working, but on days which are better, I get to pamper my senses with this view, the chilly monsoon air, birds or cicadas chirping, butterflies flitting about and squirrels scampering about. Its a great reminder that Its all good.

CatchLight- and the fog lifted

Leave a comment

The fog lifted just to reveal the beauty underneath it.

Sometimes it takes time for life’s plans to unravel, often one moment at a time, when you least expect it, the fog lifts and a path appears. If you ever find yourself feeling stuck or unable to move forward, know that that also has a lesson for you. Patterns often show up when we don’t learn these lessons.

It occurred to me yesterday, out of the blue, Life is a mirror. It is a reflection of you. Your life is what you are, so if you’re unhappy about your life, its time to take a closer look at yourself, and find a way to change it. This was one of the most powerful Aha moments in the recent past, accelerating my own introspection. More on this soon, when I have clarity to better articulate it.

Until then, there’s always enough beauty around us to make it all worthwhile.

Peace & Love
