Om Cycle

Mike and I head out on the road tomorrow. First we travel to Delhi, then on to Agra, Jaipur, and finally to Rishikesh. Am I sad about leaving? I am sad about leaving some things, morning practice, the shala, Guruji, Shakti house, and the dogs that live here. I am however ready to leave some things behind. Corina always tells the TT’s that yoga students show up on their mat, just how the show up in their lives. The same is true here in Mysore. You show up exactly how you are. Enzo, the first time I sat with him after my massage, was sharing his wisdom about the “scene” that exists here amongst the students in Mysore. He said, “That students expect Guruji to walk up to them with a red telephone on a silver platter and on the other line is God, just waiting for them.” As corny as it is what you discover here has always been inside of you. Just like in the Wizard of Oz, and just like Dorothy, to me there is no place like home. I look forward to seeing you all when we return. I can’t say it enough; I am sending you all love, love, and more love.

    Jill, we are all anxious to have you come home. I’m glad that you had the opportunity to take this once in a lifetime trip but I would be lying if I said we didn’t miss you being here. I’m sure you will return with nothing but the fondest of memories of your time in India. Everyone lives where they live for some unknown reason. We can’t wait to see and hold you close again. Have a safe trip and enjoy all the new sights and smells of India.Love Aunt MJ

    Hi Jill,Its seems as though you have been gone for so long. Its time you come back around. I feel like a spy looking at all your amazing pictures and reading all your reflections, so I figured I would attempt a comment before it is too late. Seriously your photos are awesome, right out of a coffee table book!! Safe trip back, We must all do drinks soon. Although Jess and Chi Chi have replaced the pour house with buckets, I hear. See you soon. I hope. Peace and love 🙂 Beth

    Ok, this is like the third time I have tried this and the first time my message was very meaningful but now that I feel completely computer illiterate. Let me just say I have so loved reading your travel reflections and your amazing photos. Safe trip back, we will do drinks soon. Love and Peace, Beth Barbone
