Bliss On An Ordinary Day

No big revelations during a yoga class; no touching piece of music; no idyllic beach setting…just driving in my car running errands and it hit me. An overwhelming sense of joy, contentment, gratitude, and feeling so alive that it brought me to tears at a red light. THIS is what all my mind-body practices are for; learning to be a witness and take in the moment and THANK GOD, UNIVERSE, SOURCE that I’m right here in the midst of it all. Maybe you’ve felt a “Samadhi” moment like this; a feeling of strong connection and bliss. In the middle of an ordinary day, in an ordinary life with its ordinary ups and downs, doing ordinary things – I find it amazing that there is that possibility of a “knowing” of the EXTRAordinary!

So on this ordinary day, the rain has stopped and the temperature is warmer. I have work to do and meals to make. I have a day retreat to prepare for this Friday at Wakefield with twenty beautiful souls. The world keeps moving on with me in it – feeling stronger, lighter, and more spacious than the day before. In this moment I AM BLISS…I AM BLISS…I AM BLISS…

 “Anandoham, Anandoham, Anandoham”

“Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow.” 

– Mary Jean Irion
