A Good Week, and It's Not Over

Feb 25, 2011 | Pleasure, Wisdom, Yoga practices | 2 comments

Many lovely things have happened to me this week. Just at this very moment, I can think of two:
1) Being given “The Irresistibly Brilliant Blog Award” by fellow blogster (terrible word) from “Composting A Life”, a great site for writers, philosophers and other humans – http://compostingalife.wordpress.com/
2) Being given a copy of The Radiance Sutras, a book comprising 112 meditations “for opening to the divine in everyday life”. Based on the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, this version was created/translated by Lorin Roche, PH.D.
I have been given worthy books in the past and had difficulty getting beyond the introduction. This book I love. It’s about meditation that leads to being turned on to life, and more.
The book finishes with several pages of light-hearted wisdom. For instance, Dr. Roche offers this advice to yogis and/or meditators:

Take naps. If you have been doing yoga and the sutras for awhile, your body will tend to enter deep repose when you take a nap, or just lie there and sort of catnap or “savasana nap.” There is often a meditative quality to the dozing, as well as a feeling of being drenched in rejuvenation and healing.

The Radiance Sutras is gift you would do well to give yourself, one of those that keeps on giving. I recommend it.

- a good week, and it's not over

    • No worries, Camille. I’m happy to refer any and all to your web link for The Radiance Sutras. Hopefully, one day we’ll meet in person.
      Warmly, Eve
