going back to the begining
some mornings, or evenings, or in-betweeenings
you may ask yourself:
how did i end up here.
when did it begin?
what is the root of how things are the way they are.
perhaps it was when i met you in the dance studio.
maybe it was when mom met dad…
but how did they get there.
you can be a victim, or you can be enlightened. what starts out as a light hearted musing can so easily become a depressing regret-filled pit. don’t go down the spiral, why choose sadness?
Patanjali has some good advice on this.
YS II.33 vitarka-badhane pratipaksha-bhavanam
When disturbed by disturbing thoughts, think of the opposite.
