I feel like the universe is sending me a message. Make yourself useful. I recently did a weekend workshop on ‘seva’ which is the Sanskrit word for ‘selfless service.’ The first activity we did was brainstorm ideas of service we could provide for our community. I sat there and made a list and realized I could do a lot more for my community. Then, my yogi friend Veronica got back from Haiti where she taught yoga to cancer patients. Amazing. I got home from her class and felt the pang again: do something for your community.
All day long on Martin Luther King Jr. day I kept hearing and seeing this quote:
So, blog as my witness, I am giving back this winter. No more ignoring the call of the universe.
