IN THIS EXTRAORDINARY WORLD WE LIVE IN, I WANT TO SHARE A SIMPLE STORY.
THE VIEW OF MY SON AT 4 YEARS OF AGE .
IT GOES LIKE THIS, ONE MORNING ON OUR WALK TO SCHOOL TY LOOKS UP AT ME AND SAY"S....
MOM IM TIRED OF CARRYING YOUR HAND, I LOOK DOWN AT THIS LITTLE KID IN ASTONISHMENT...."LOVE YOU AREN'T CARRYING MY HAND, IM HOLDING YOUR HAND.
TY LOOKS UP WITH LITTLE PERPLEXED LOOK AND WITHOUT HESITATION SAID NO MOM I"M CARRYING YOUR HAND , CAN I LET IT GO NOW?
THIS LITTLE INTERACTION BETWEEN ME AND MY SON WAS MORE ENLIGHTENING THAN ANY OF THE HUNDREDS OF BOOKS I HAVE EVER READ ON THE SUBJECT.
SOMETIMES IT"S ALL ABOUT THE VIEW.....

The word MANTRA originates from late 18th century SANSKRIT, literally a though, thought behind speech or action, from 'man - think' related to mind and 'tra' which means transport.
MANTRAS can be seen as seeds, a powerful energy with magical or spiritual efficiency when chanted and meditated upon.
This morning in my yoga class we chanted a Manta that I wanted to share with you. In a time that extremist rules,the world is divided and peace is just a word, this chant is the only thing that made sense to me.
Even if MANTRAS and CHANTS are not your thing, keep reading with a open mind and heart and until you hear the meaning have no judgement.
OM ASATO MAA SAD-GAMAYA
TAMASO MAA JYOTIR-GAMAYA
MRTYOR-MAA AMRTAM GAMAYA
OM SHAANTIH SHAANTIH SHAANTIH
LEAD ME FROM FALSEHOOD TO TRUTH
LEAD ME FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT
LEAD ME FROM DEATH TO THE IMMORTALITY
PEACE PEACE PEACE
Personally I will carry this Mantra like a anchor when my ship hits rough waters.

Both mystical and powerful in its meaning.
MYSTICAL: The interplay between light and leaves when sunlight shines through.
POWERFUL: Melancholic longing or nostalgia for a person, place or thing far away,
Little did I realise this pastime since childhood just chilling under a tree transfixed by the little particles of energy and light bouncing shimmering and dancing with the movement of the leaves has a name and explanation for its ability to fill me with a rush of unexpected emotions.
The Knowledge that everything is alive and has a purpose, simultaneously creating beauty and nourishment a connection so much larger than myself.
My entire existence is reliant on both the light and the tree.
I want to thank my friend James for sending me this word, I bow in gratitude to the existence of KOMOREBI
ENJOY your next experience.
