The children of Karunya Mane are sporting some pretty cool new school bags from a very generous IT company!
Just had to share...because these things make me Happy!

Letting go...

To let go of things is one of the most "freeing" feelings in the world. A lesson in detachment for sure. I'm OK with it all...because doing so is taking me to where I long to be. After all, as the saying goes "You can't take it with you" and No we can't take it all with us!!

So...all of the books are now listed and they are on their way. We have sold one of our cars and have one more to sell..then last to go will be the Vespas. Clothing and accessories are at Consignment and money is being made on those as well..and what doesn't sell will go to the Homeless Shelter for women.

I have some wonderful Buddhas, Crystals, Hindu Gods and Godesses...but those shall go as well.

Were on our way...each little step we take.

Breathe Deeply and Listen

" What if this was your last year in this body? LIVE! Look over your life. What things do you remember? Wonderful meals? Television shows? Endless conversations about relationships?


All of these are forgotten.

We remember when we have taken risks-no matter what the outcome.

As a person takes his final breath, he does not regret so much his actions as his inactions...

the missed opportunities. Taking risks defines who we are.

Risk breathes life into mere existence.

All wisdom resides within; you only need to breathe deeply and Listen."

~from "A life worth breathing"

Max Strom

Be spiritual and realize truth for yourself.

New Lifeline

"set a deadline and act. so many people "wish" they could quit their job and dream about it forever...it is scary, I know it is, but simply daydreaming about it will only keep you stuck in the J O B. A deadline is a great way to keep yourself committed."

I read these words this morning on a blog that I frequent. The words seemed to jump out at me from the screen. Deep meaning...

It is time to set a deadline. But I wish to refer to our deadline as "new lifeline" I like that much better~

All of our "ducks" are lining themselves up quite nicely for us...

you see, when you Really want something, I mean Reeeeeeaaaaallllyyyy want something so much with all of your heart and soul. Mountains can Move! (at least in my life they can!)

So with that said. We have one. Were very excited and were Very, Very much anticipating our New Life!

"Are you searching for the river of your soul? Then come out of your prison. Leave the stream and join the river that flows into the ocean"

you are so missed...

I couldn't write about you right away...
I wanted to, but every time I tried, my eyes would fill with tears and I couldn't see the words. Like right now...
I think about you everyday and every night...sometimes I think I can feel you close to me..especially when I am in my yoga room..
I worry about you being buried in the ground, but we wrapped you in your warm blanket and we wanted you to be nearby forever.
I love talking to you when I'm outside where you now lay, under the ground, under the Buddha statue..and that rose is still in full bloom. Beautiful, just like you were and you are...
Miss you my Prince~~

New Year, New Post!

It seems that every time I begin a new post, I end up just clicking away and not posting it.

Hmm..wonder why that is..maybe because I wish that it were about Ray and I being in India?!! Yeah, that is probably the reason!!!

But, I do have a post for the New Year~I won't tell you the sad things...only the Happy, Good things this time :0)
Ray and I decided to begin our New Year in a positive, grounding, centered way. So we headed out to Point Reyes and attended a 5 hour Yoga Retreat with one of our yoga teachers we had in Marin for many years. Christy Brown~ and she did, as we knew she would, have a beautiful day planned for us all!

It was a full house at the "Yoga Toes" shala, owned and run by Amanda Giacomini and her husband rapper MC Yogi. Two of the most beautiful and genuine grounded yogis I have had the pleasure of meeting in quite a while..his music is amazing and of course it is right up my alley as he sings about all of the Hindu Gods whom I love and worship. "Elephant Power" is his recent CD and I play it daily as it is in my 5 disc CD player at home along with Jai Uttal and Krishna Das...just to mention a few~

We began the day and ended the day in a perfectly perfect day and we are in hope that this New Year will bring with it all that we pray for and wish for in the world.
May it bring to you the same~~
Namaste my friends~
