Busy? A Remedy for the Busy Mind easily Overwhelmed

Taught a vinyasa flow class during lunch and a yin yoga class tonight.  Finally feeling like myself where I no longer had the dizzy spells and vertigo.  I am clearly over my jet lag which apparently had affected my ears in such a way to cause that sense of imbalance – no fun feeling like you can pass out anytime.  One of the ways I recovered was through yoga – Raja or Kriya Yoga came to help me recover.  So great to feel like my normal self again ..

You should sit in meditation for 20 minutes a day. Unless you’re too busy, then you should sit for an hour.

– Old Zen saying …


But also attributed to Mahatma Ghandhi who is said to have said to his staff something like:

Today is especially a demanding day with very little time to spare so … I will meditate for two hours rather than my usual one hour.


So today is late Mahatma Ghandhi’s birthday.  A great hero who taught us about political action through non-violence.  I always think of MC Yogi’s song when I think of MG.  MC Yogi – thank you for this:
