It has been an amazing Mahasivaratri Festival time, strong energies, a little overwhelming and not surprisingly some are feeling a little emotional. There are always transformative energies on this night of nights, and it can manifest in a whole spectrum of ways. Feel like change is coming? Lol, that is Sivaratri for you.
Meanwhile, I have picked up Pema Chodron’s The Wisdom of No Escape and have loved reading and contemplating it. It comprises teachings that she gave during a week long silent meditation camp to the attendees. Simple and understandable, she gives a wonderful new way of looking at self discovery, self awareness, growth, mindfulness and most of all, Joy. Really, I recommend it to anyone interested in self awareness. Pema is a Buddhist Nun with the gift of explaining teachings in such a simple and meaningful way.
