A feeling of Nostalgia kicked in today…
Followed by a longing for kindred souls and moreover, my teachers.
Pictures were looked at, warm feelings of love filled my heart, after which I sent messages to dear ones with whom I share a practice with as well as blissful times on the road.
My extended family, a community. Kind beings with whom we gather to grow, learn and transform.
Only then I realised, it is the full moon of Guru Purnima…. the first full moon following the summer solstice. Such an auspicious day to celebrate our teachers.
Purnina means full moon and Guru, “Ru” is the Sanskrit root which mean “remover”, “Gu” stands for “darkness”, the remover of darkness is the teacher. Our Gurus come in many forms.
We learn from our mentors, assistants, parents yet especially from our children and students, nature! There is no rule about how a lesson can be taken, expect from baring in mind that it takes humility to learn from all.
Happy Guru Purnima! And I take the opportunity to thank all that make me grow, learn and wise up….. let’s all take the opportunity of this auspicious day to change, grow, transform and transcend our limitations!
