This exquisite Linga photo is from the Vishwanath temple in Varanasi, or Kashi as it is affectionately known. Every day there is a ritual for the cleaning and adorning of the Linga. It is intoxicating. I long to sit in this process and be caught up in the temple priests devotion. India carries her sacred threads even at this challenging time. I am hearing from many of my friends in India and their stories are unimaginable. The burning pyres, meant to honor and transition one soul, are handling multiple bodies. It is tragic for the families to witness. Death on takes many forms.

We actively support many NGO's in India at this time. Recently we supported a drive by a group of US doctors to supply oxygen tanks to Indian hospitals. We can each do small acts of love and compassion. Together we will work towards the healing of our planet and all sentient beings who call Earth HOME.

My teacher, Sadhguru, has just released a new book, KARMA. It is available both on audio (in his voice!!), kindle and in print. I highly recommend it for your continued exploration into the embodied journey to which we are tethered. Sages, yogi's and mystics share ancient wisdom for us to absorb, digest and incorporate into life. Amazon link. I promise you find it interesting.
Drink the nectar of poetry, and sunsets and harmonic cords inviting you into the center of who you are. The place where the truest of you resides; without assumptions or judgments. Relinquish the tainted stories of those who fear your light, your brilliance, your essence.
Claim your entirety, stretch out of your skin and into your effervescence. ~Nichola
