No matter how hard I try, I have never been able to take a good enough photograph of a sunset and I’m convinced that it isn’t possible because I’ve come to realise that it isn’t the image that I’m trying to capture but rather the experience of watching the sun set as it sprays shades of orange, red and yellow across the sky.

I took this photograph today while sitting atop a huge boulder overlooking the Indian Ocean and as I traced a line with my eyes from the sun in front of me to the sky above me, I soaked in the way the colour of the sky changed from subtle orange to dark blue. Suddenly in those few moments, I experienced our planet as a round ball orbiting the sun.
Though I’ve always known that the Earth is round and orbits the sun because that’s what I learned in science class, I’ve never experienced it. But in this one moment of just sitting with my heart open, I did. But I couldn’t capture it, not on a camera, not even in my experience. It came, overwhelmed me and left, leaving me feeling a kind of exuberance I have never felt before. While the realisation that I cannot capture a moment stirred in me a sort of awakening, it was the realisation that I’ve spent most of my life trying to capture and relive moments, that really shook me.
I cannot capture a moment nor can I relive one that has passed because nature has it such that I’m in a new one each and every moment. I try to dissect this but each time I try, I get so overwhelmed by the magnificent profoundness of Life, I feel like I’m going to explode with joy.
I have never experienced Life the way I do now and I am eternally grateful for the precious tools that have empowered me to do so. I used to be afraid that people will laugh and make fun of me for saying that yoga is what changed my experience of life but what a fool I’ve been. If just for that one reason I hold back sharing the most life transforming journey I’m on. #innerengineering #yoga

We are all a little weird
And Life's a little weird
And when we find someone
Whose weirdness is compatible with ours
We join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness
And call it Love ❀️ - Dr Suess

Breath Β©

Deep in the night
A gentle sigh is heard
Love, surrender, joy, resignation
peace, silence, fierce determination
All in one ball of vapour

Breathe out, profound expression
Breathe in, a subtle explosion
I stop for a while
And listen with my being
Alas, it's not mine,
Only ours to savour.
