The cold, dark days of winter are the perfect backdrop for a deep, longing look inward. Stoke the devotional fire of the heart to keep warm and inspired as we move toward the warmer lighter days of spring.
That's what my yoga teacher suggests. I think "stoke the devotional fire" means get mad about something.
The good advice continues: Take the ecstatic mid-winter train ride into the heart and untangle from the holidays. Settle back into the truth of who we are, why we're here and how can we can be of greater service.
When I heard that part something dawned on me. No, not the truth or the service parts. But Why we're Here. Here - twisted in a yoga pose in a cold gym straining to hear new age advice over the sound of clanging weights and basketballs thumping. Suddenly, all Epiphany-like, I thought, I could be in a sauna right now. Or very hot mineral water. Outdoors. With a view.
Hope your Epiphany is as warming.
