in much the same way that it was difficult for me to know the right words to say as i led my yoga class this morning, i am unsure of the right words to say on this blog today. to talk about my weekend and the things i have been doing seems trivial and even disrespectful.
the events of september 11, 2001 weigh heavy on my heart today. rather than filling up space with words that don’t seem appropriate for the gravity of this day, i am taking a day of silence to remember and honor.
i will be dedicating my practice this afternoon to the memory of those lost, to the courage of those who serve and to the strength of my fellow american citizens.
i read gandhi’s prayer for peace to my class this morning.
i offer you peace.
i offer you love.
i offer you friendship.
i see your beauty.
i hear your need.
i feel your feelings.
my wisdom flows from the highest source.
i salute that source in you.
let us work together.
for unity and peace.
– mahatma gandhi
how are you remembering and honoring today?
