Pardon my dust, my awkward “website” that’s been ‘under construction’ for about a year, and my erratic posting habits. I have big plans, I promise. So don’t abandon me yet! Thanks 🙂
Where am I right now and what the heck am I doing? I’ve been asked that a lot lately. Well, I’m in a very small town called Nosara on the pacific side of the Nicoya peninsula in Costa Rica. I have been training at the Nosara Yoga Institute for 3 weeks now working towards becoming a certified yoga instructor. I can’t explain how rewarding this experience has already been (not to mention tiring,) but I have learned life lessons and shared experiences with amazing people that I will carry with me forever. One more week left and I’m busy preparing my first 90 minute class.
And whats next? Great question… I may carry this momentum into the southern hemisphere and relapse into ski world. Depending on some last minute details, cause that’s how I roll… Or I may be kicking it here savoring some much deserved chill out time on the beach. Then home soon to work on the next move, I’m feeling the serious need to get in the air again, and more than anything I miss from home are my parachutes (they miss me too) as this has been a healthy break from my cartoon land life but it has also left me with an incomprehensible hunger to fly again.
DaVinci said it well;
“For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.”
But, that aside, I’ve been on a completely separate journey which has fed my soul in a profound way, and I’m overwhelmed with a feeling of completeness and tranquility. So here’s to that!
I’ll leave you with the third sutra of Patanjali,
“Tada Drashtu Swarupe Vashtanam”
Standing there with resolute determination, like a mountain, your essential and fundamental nature will be revealed to you, and you will become established in your true self.
Ps. I promise I’ll get back to the regularly scheduled cool-nonhippie-straight-up-sick-stories-and-photos-of-basejumpingandskiing. But we can all use a little zen, eh?
