EYES OF ENERGY & DREAM



in out-of-the-way places of the heart,
where your thoughts never think to wander,
this beginning has been quietly forming,
waiting until you were ready to emerge.

for a long time it has watched your desire,
feeling the emptiness growing inside you,
noticing how you willed yourself on,
still unable to leave what you had outgrown.

it watched you play with seduction of safety
and the gray promises that sameness whispered,
heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent,
wondered would you always live like this.

then the delight, when your courage kindled,
and out you stepped onto new ground,
your eyes young again with energy and dream,
a path of plenitude opening before you.

though your destination is not yet clear
you can trust the promise of this opening;
unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
that is at one with your life's desire.

awaken your spirit to adventure;
hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
for your soul senses the world that awaits you.

UPCOMING KIRTAN !





SATURDAY, APRIL 25  1-2pm
 KIRTAN with SITALISA 
at
 STOUGHTON YOGA 
stoughtonyoga@gmail.com
123 e. main st. stoughton, wi. 
53589

this will be a one hour event, come,
get absorbed into a euphoric nimbus of sounds.
 i will be light on the chat & lay it on liberally with song.
60 minutes of musical nectar,
a meticulous, meditative process of remapping 
the mental frequencies. 
in my own life i have been  following the lead
 of the goddess, since i was a teen.
 for the past decade,
 i have been working deeply with 
the experience of mantra practice.
 i am humbly inspired, regularly.
 in so doing the practice,
 you come to know the names,
 to which you chant, on a cellular level.
 the energies actually colonize within your heart/mind.
 targeting their coded messages of practical magic, into the
various areas, that need a balm or a giggle.
 i adore this process and am delighted to be a torch for sharing.
you don't have to be anything other than exactly what you are
to practice mantra. 
i invite you to come... 
an hour of TOGETHER MIND.

PAINTING, DANCE, AND SO FORTH. 
IT IS ONE OF THE EASIEST WAYS TO REALIZE
ONE'S INHERENT DIVINITY. BE A BEGINNER, A CHILD
IN FRONT OF GOD...
THIS WILL ENABLE YOU TO TAP INTO THE INFINITE 
POSSIBILITIES & HELP YOU MANIFEST MORE & MORE
IN A MUCH DEEPER WAY."

ANSWERING IN EXTRAORDINARY WAYS


" NOTHING IN LIFE IS TO BE FEARED, IT IS ONLY TO BE UNDERSTOOD.
NOW IS THE TIME TO UNDERSTAND MORE, SO THAT WE MAY 
FEAR LESS."  ~ marie curie





do you feel it?
the lift, the shift, in our collective
human bloodline.
a new understanding,
 a refreshed expression 
 emerging.
 
the very act of knowing this shift upgrades
our entire opperation. 
rendering us each as builders, bridges & liasons.
 cosmic weavers of the evolutionary update that is occuring.
no turning back... no.
 take courage, have commitment,
choose LOVE !
 
we move as we must,
as hologramatic & part
of the larger organism.
 
do you hear it?
the brilliance of 
the subtle composition
that is life,
your life,
this life.
 
do you see it?
the stillness that shines through you.
the beauty of the moment. 
 the mystery 
which is moving us all...
the attractiveness that shows the way forward,
pulling us onto the path
into the holy assignment of awakening.
 
come connect the dots,
a synergy is created 
our voices grow louder
our messages more resonant,
when we collaborate.
our ideas strengthen 
in the collective field.

SITALISA YOGA... hearing the call
& answering in extraordinary ways.
 
LOVE WARRIOR MIDWIVES OF THE NEW CREATION.

TAKE YOUR SEAT FRIENDS.

WEDNESDAYS 5:45 - 7 pm
SATURDAYS & SUNDAYS 9 - 10:15 am
 
private mentorship sessions
by appointment.

albert einstein warns us wonderfully when he said,
 
" YOU CAN LIVE YOUR LIFE AS IF NOTHING IS A MIRACLE,
OR YOU CAN LIFE YOUR LIFE AS IF EVERYTHING IS A MIRACLE."  
 
jean houston says,
 
" MIRACLE SEEING IS A MAJOR STEP IN MIRACLE MAKING."
 
our work together is about seeing more of the patterns of possibility
in reality, resolving to be nothing less than the person we really are,
 
you are remarkable.
see you soon.

THE TREMOR OF LIFE - WEAVING






THE SANGHA IS GATHERING THIS EVENING 
5:45 - 7:00 pm at A PERFECT KNOT YOGA.
this is my invitation to you, come, come, come...

enter your own presence, receive it into every part of you.
relax into every corner of your body, be filled as the rigidity melts.
come to, through, the portal of softness, the tremor of life weaving 
through you, attracting you to create, co-create, to take the keys
and give rise. 

oh Gazelle-eyed one, let Presence fill your body,
merge in the indescribable spaciousness of your own mind.  
~Vijnanabhairava Tantra





you are like a dog chasing a stick;
every time a stick is thrown, you run after it.

Instead be like a lion who, 
rather than chasing after the stick,
turns to face the thrower.
one only throws a stick at a lion once.
~ MILAREPA

WEAR THE NICE LINGERIE



life isn't fair, but it's still good. life is too short enjoy it. cry with someone. it's more healing than crying along. make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present and the future.  it's OK to let your children see you cry.

don't compare your life to others. you have no idea what their journey is all about. if a relationship has to be secret, you shouldn't be in it. take a deep breath it calms the mind. everything can change in the blink of an eye.  it's never too late to be happy.  but it's all up to you and no one else.  when it come time to go after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.  burn the nice candles, use the nice sheets, wear the nice lingerie, wear the nice clothes.  don't save it for a special occasion.  today is special. 

over prepare, then go with the flow. no one is in charge of your happiness but you.  frame every so-called disaster with these words: in five years will this matter?  always choose life. forgive but don't forget. time heals almost everything.  give time, time. however good or bad a situation is, it will change.  all that truly matters in the end is that you loved.  

if we all threw our problems in a pile and we saw everyone else's, we would grab ours back.  envy is a waste of time.  accept what you already have, not what you need.  yield.  friends are the family we choose. life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.

IN THE NAME OF LOVE



dear friends ~

i have a challenge for you today.
a very easy challenge, as we all have so much love to give.
as we refine our honesty, it is so obvious that all we need...
no matter what,
 IS LOVE.

i challenge you to love yourself today in lavish
 and brand new ways. with the eyes of a child and the resonance of an elder.

i challenge you to spell out your love for humanity
 in every interaction, may your words sparkle, may you use them like wands.
let the renewing power of love be the current at the home base of your being.
i challenge you to feel a kind of cosmic connection
 with pure expression, with this wild opportunity to be fully alive,
 fully human, fully awake.
YOU ARE AN EXPRESSION OF LOVE.

and of course, i'm in it too.
and IN THE NAME OF LOVE...
~
i am giving away  3 - CLASS PASSES
 to the first 5 people to reach out.

DROP ME A LINE,
AND GET YOUR GOODIE.

HAFIZ SAYS:

the subject tonight is love
and for tomorrow night as well,
as a matter of fact
i know of no better topic
for us to discuss 
until we all die.

amor amor amor.


MINDFUL

EVERY DAY 
I SEE OR HEAR 
SOMETHING
THAT MORE OR LESS 

KILLS ME 
WITH DELIGHT,
THAT LEAVES ME
 LIKE A NEEDLE 
IN THE HAYSTACK 
OF LIGHT.
IT WAS WHAT I WAS BORN FOR -
TO LOOK, TO LISTEN, 

TO LOSE MYSELF
INSIDE THIS SOFT WORLD - 
TO INSTRUCT MYSELF 
OVER AND OVER

IN JOY,
AND ACCLAMATION.
NOR AM I TALKING 
ABOUT THE EXCEPTIONAL,

THE FEARFUL, THE DREADFUL,
THE VERY EXTRAVAGANT - 
BUT OF THE ORDINARY,
THE COMMON, THE VERY DRAB,

THE DAILY PRESENTATIONS.
OH, GOOD SCHOLAR,
I SAY TO MYSELF,
HOW CAN YOU HELP

BUT GROW WISE
WITH SUCH TEACHINGS
AS THESE - 
THE UNTRIMMABLE LIGHT

OF THE WORLD,
THE OCEAN'S SHINE,
THE PRAYERS THAT ARE MADE
OUT OF GRASS?

THE COLLECTIVE FIELD



i am feeling so grateful for all of you who attended
 last saturday's Kirtan Fundraiser for A PERFECT KNOT YOGA CENTER !
your contributions are appreciated deeply.
  celebrating the potentiality of our species,
in joining our genius, we
create an explosion - incarnating, embodying.
a communion of souls with a passion to participate in the co-creative,
evolutionary field. 

thank you for being willing & able,
to go for what is unknown & what is new.
thank you for going for the quantum shifts. 

so much can come out of the resonance of small groups. 
as we generate an invisible magnetic field of love,
we then give our gift to the shift. 

may you be lead by and lead from the evolutionary impulse within.

&
may your generosity return again & again,
 as the nourishing ground of your being & becoming.

all my love & more.
