As the title states, I read the book. Have to say I loved some of it, and was tired by the end.........it seems as a society we are very interested in others and how they somehow find divinity in their lives. But every time I read one of these stories, I realize I am reading about someone that might as well be a little green man with 3 eyes and 4 arms that traveled here from a place far-far away. They always seem NOT to be burdened with anything other than the fact they need answers.
Don't get me wrong, I love a good story, or better yet, a great story. And I do hold a deep desire to believe this type of personal transformation is possible, what I haven't quite figured out is how to do it.
I am a 41 year old woman, with 3 children, a husband, a mortgage, and so on. I find it hard to visit my yoga classes on a regular basis, little lone find time to delve deep into my own psyche. With that said, I have hope. I do believe, on a very high level, that we can find divinity. But lately, I am wondering how to do it in a world filled with supermarkets, trips to school, and soccer practice.
If you are interested, and I hope some of you are, I plan to take a 12 month trip of my own. I plan to choose the 3-5 aspects of my life keeping me from own personal ZEN and work on them. Maybe we can brain storm together, maybe share ideas that transform...but mostly I am hoping to go through a personal transformation that will allow me to continue to love the life I am living, the one that has been laid out for me by the decisions and experiences I have had. (one I can maintain on a soccer mom's budget)
Join me will you? I am divine, and I plan to remind myself of this fact for the next 12 months.
