“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
― H. Jackson Brown Jr., P.S. I Love You
She awaited, awaited for more than a decade, awaited for the right person to understand her emotionally and physically, a dream of indulging into a lifetime mating. Years and years passed by, she never came across any man who could touched her core, who had the same amount of passion, who had the same belief of spiritual intimacy!
“And then, as if written by the hand of a bad novelist, an incredible thing happened.”
― Jonathan Stroud, The Amulet of Samarkand
A very quite man, a writer and a thinker **(at least she beliefs) have been observing her for many months, written poems on her without her knowledge. And several months later that engrossed her. She started believing his passion, passion towards her. As if her bridles going to be released, going to be sprouted. As if she her buried passion going to get a new life. Alas!
He was not just into her completely, not even periodically. He had been carrying many other pride moments with other women from his past. She sighed!
No, she will never believe in her dream again. And she allowed herself to surrender her physical body to entertained by a man whom she couldn’t associated with dream of emotional polarities (a divine sexual energy of men and women). She didn’t wait for the right person anymore, but she created that dream by her own.
Adopting a plant-based diet makes sense for your health and the environment, and according to some yogis’ interpretation of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, one of yoga’s primary texts, it may also be a way to enlightenment. Some yogis believe diet is key to practice the Yoga Sutra’s principle of *Ahimsa, or non-harming., meaning “nonharming,” is the first of five yamas, or guides for self-restraint, set forth in the Yoga Sutra. To some practitioners, veganism is ahimsa in practice: “It’s about being kind—to others, including animals, to the planet, and to oneself,” says Sharon Gannon, co-founder of Jivamukti Yoga School and the vegan Jivamuktea Café in New York City, and author of the vegan cookbook Simple Recipes for Joy. “Veganism is not about restriction—it’s a way of eating and living that can create more happiness and joy.”
Gannon is on one end of the veganism-as-ahimsa spectrum, choosing also not to eat honey or wear clothes made from animals, such as leather. But other practitioners take a different tack. “[Patanjali] says to be as kind as you can and to do no harm, and while being vegan is one way, there are a lot of other ways,” says Alanna Kaivalya, an international yoga teacher and author of Myths of the Asanas. A former vegan, Kaivalya, with her doctors, determined that the diet actually exacerbated an existing thyroid condition, so now she buys local and organic food when possible, including meat, and looks for other ways to incorporate ahimsa into her life. “There’s not one right way to practice yoga, but there is a right way for you,” she says.
