Politics, Yoga, Work, and Love

I am as raving mad about politics as my father was. Stark raving mad. I don't want to convince anyone of anything I know to be true. I care about the earth and don't want to destroy it. Not even for jobs or prosperity. I care about women's issues and health care for the elderly, the sick and the children who need it. I care about education and I care about civic issues. I often wondered why my father was always ranting and raving like a lunatic-but here I am rounding fifty and I'm just like him. Just my politics are different that's all. I do search for more positive media-If that is even possible?

Tonight I went to a Yoga Class for World Class Athletes. It was surreal. It was a combination of the groovy and the wicked hard core. I did not fit in, I could barely get out of my own way. But I did not give up- I just tried to do what I could do and tried to visualize myself doing those moves in the future.
Every nerve is tingling in my body. I feel awake and alive! It was amazing. You should have seen the teacher's body. It was insane. I don't think I have ever seen a body like that! He actually does most of the workout, instead of directing you to do it. I tasted sweat on my cheek. I have not sweat exercising since middle school. If I can walk tomorrow I'm going back!

The Yoga teacher talked about breathing. I never think about my breath. He was so grateful for the breath. He spoke about loving. If you are loving there is nothing else to worry about. He talked about moving your body in natural ways. It sounds simple, but I do office work most of the day. Not too much moving around....So I will concentrate on breathing, moving and loving. Three great endeavors.

Lastly, I am in a very new place at work with curriculum directors, principals, and other department heads that I respect and think are cool people. I love my new gifted team; they are talented individuals that are caring and loving teachers.

Something is shifting and I can feel it-Saturn must be leaving my chart in some way and the planet of prosperity must be moving in! I feel love everywhere.....
