Yogamum has just announced that the WoYoPracMo theme for March is "Grounding." I need to think a little bit more on this theme.
I love March. It is when we move from Pisces into Aries. The Aries is a fire sign, one defined by action and intensity. Their lives are often whirlwind of activities. They would benefit from meditation -- the art of action in stillness.
Aries are admirable for their drive and ambition. They are perfectionists -- and they can be impatient with those who do not live up to their high standards. For Aries is the lesson of forgiveness and letting go -- and standing still.
Yes, March is my birthday month (in case you haven't figured that out) Since the dharma and yoga entered my life, I have come to look forward to March with optimism. March is the month where I begin my life, and so it is a useful marker for some spiritual accounting. For the past few years, March is the time that I reflect on how I have lived the past year, and I set an intention for the rest of the year.
For the past few years, when I reflect on my life, I am able to say, "I am happy."
I am glad for being able to finally say that about myself.
I leave you with an image of a cow doing a firefly pose.
This picture, by the way, is currently the wallpaper on my computer at work.
Yes, it's that kind of day. Again.
PS: Anyone notice how this cow has both horns AND udders? Is it a hermaphrodite cow? I thought only bulls have horns. Anyone knows?
