For many of us, back to school is what comes to mind in September. We watch children boarding the bus to head to their classrooms for another year of learning. But learning is not just done in a classroom and it has no connection to age. We have all been blessed with the ability to learn. Being open to the teachings that abound each day in our lives is a pathway to joy.
I recently returned from a four-day program on Ayurveda at the Chopra Center in Carlsbad, CA. In that short time I was bombarded with information about how to incorporate the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda into today’s world. At times it seemed overwhelming. However, our teachers all kept coming back to a single message; Ayurveda is the science of life. The science of life is connecting us to the rhythms of nature. It couldn’t be more logical; we just need to be open to the lessons of nature.
This month, get into nature! Spend time outside each day and open your soul to the lessons that are within you and right in front of you. Light & Love, margaret
Chant this mantra as you meditate this month: Ong Namo Guru Dav Namo Translation: I bow to the creative energy of the infinite. I bow to the Divine channel of wisdom.
Why chant it: This Gurmukhi mantra opens the communication channel between the student and the Divine teacher. We like to think that it also opens us to learning and gives the strength to try something new.
Join us on Sep 9 as we connect with nature at Wildwood Metropark….
