I love that poem, it invokes for me a sense of what I feel in meditation sometimes, when I think I kind of get a little closer to my own Essence Nature, god, whatever you want to call it.
I will die in Thailand, a crazy old yogini and be cremated there, with my ashes being spread over the land, giving back to that which has supported me.
I visited my maha astrologer last week and gave her my timeframe for my trip….the planets say very interesting things….;) we shall see….
svasti, I like the “crazy old yogini” part…for years I've had the same visions, so to speak, in meditation, of me years from now….what I'm wearing, where I'm sitting, what my hair is like….I know where I am in my vision, but I won't say….
we shall see….;)
I have become fascinated recently by influence of Yoga on writers, particularly the “American Trancendentalists”–Whitman, Emerson, and Thoreau. I was so surprised to seeing their references to the Gita and Upanishads in their writing. I just didn't notice that when I studied them as an English major.
Now here is Jack London, sounding like he just stepped out of an Upanishad himself. Now I have to go figure out whether he, to was steeped in Eastern wisdom, or is just an example of one of my personal favorite themes–the universality of Yoga philosophy?
Perhaps you already know the answer.
In any case, thanks for the enjoyable intellectual provocation.
Just pumped my question and a link to this blog into my Yoga Journal blog:
What a beautiful poem!
I have been reading your blog for awhile now and find it very inspiring- I love your no nonsense approach and obvious deep love and respect for life. I have added you to my blog roll and hope that is okay.
All the best!
thanks so much, terra, what a beautiful thing to say! thanks for reading….
Thanks for reminding me to put this blog on my blog roll, too.
Bob, and thanks to you also for reading! I've been writing this blog since 2005 and am kinda sorta cutting back on writing, but feel free to start at the beginning….
