Just a quick photo post of a dramatic sunset over the Ganga as seen several days ago from 60’s Beatles Cafe in Laxman Jhula
SOUL FOOD-OCT 7, 2015
Sitting here at Swiss garden for breakfast…
…decided to treat myself to my favorite, aloo parantha and masala chai…rather than the standard, healthy, good for me, porridge. This is breakfast to feed my soul as well and that is no less important to my good health. And to my great surprise, and joy, it is actually chilly! What a pleasant and welcome surprise….hints of the cold to come in a few months, but delightful right now! And a further added blessing, the Wi-Fi here is not working so I am able to completely relax….
I am gently reminded of the pleasures of days past before all this was available. Just relaxing, being with all that is surrounding me, doing my needlepoint, reading….this is a powerful reminder of how much we miss out on when we become slaves of this new technology…..On the other hand, technology is a great blessing…as I sit here in Rishikesh, writing on my computer, I am able to listen to a radio station from Israel, just as if I was sitting in my living room at home….the best of both worlds!
It’s been an interesting day in general, and will write more about “getting out of my comfort zone” in the next post…the rest of the photos in this post were made possible BECAUSE I was able to get out of that place controlled by fears…and in addition to these lovely things…
JUST DID MY FIRST CARD READING….BEAUTIFUL!
Just being back in “service” again always does wonders for me…being in my purpose…and these readings, which basically bring deep insights to the person sitting opposite me, are extremely gratifying to say the least.
It has been a blessed day!
I am deeply grateful
With love light and JOY
Today I cancelled my ticket for this years trip to India. It was something I knew I had to do for some time but kept putting it off. I am truly heartsick at the thought of not “coming home” to Ma Ganga for another full year, but at the same time, realize that this too is a blessing in disguise.
Although truly sad and disappointed at the moment, I’m sure this is a blessing in disguise and I remain grateful to God and joyful and accepting of all things! !
Just to clarify, I had scheduled long overdue cataract surgery for April, upon my return from India. But the condition has worsened to the point where I can barely see out of my right eye, and the left is getting worse by the day. So no choice. Must be taken care of.
I know that something wonderful is waiting for me and will simply continue to enjoy each and every day to the fullest, in full acceptance joy, gratitude, Faith and Freedom from Fear. Despite the momentary disappointment and sadness, Life is definitely beautiful and full of wonderful surprises!
much love light and JOY
Just in this kind of mood this morning. One of those days when I wish Rishikesh was closer, or I had more money and could just “pop over” for a week to visit, or both!
It’s been six months since I left, and it seems like forever. But in just over six months I will be back, and hopefully that time will fly by.
The Magic of Ram Jhula Sunsets
During my recent sojourn in Rishikesh, I found myself drawn continually to Ram Jhula during the hours before sunset. And the feelings of tranquility together with gentle Ganga energy never ceased to astound me. Here are just a few shots to give you a feeling of the wonder of this place.
Ram Jhula in the Golden Glow of Sunset
I can visit Ram Jhula every day and never tire of the changing view. This particular day was clear and sunny, although chilly, but the brilliance of the sunset was reflected on the bridge. If you’ve ever been here, you will appreciate how special these views are.
