Wise words at a meditation retreat.

We were awakened to the sound of Currawong’s calling their lyrical music  drifting through the cold air having briefly left city life  to be with Swami a visiting monk from the Ramakrishna order.

Steaming breathe creating a  soft cloud before me I followed others into the meditation room. Swami who had traveled from the banks of the Ganges; how was he feeling in the cold air of Mount MacedonVictoria?

During question time a young man explained that he was bored by his life and frustrated in his accountancy job. Inspired by the presence and wise words  Swami had shared with us over the weekend he intended leaving his job and city life and joining the Swami in India starting at the Ramakrishna mission.

“Young man my advice to you is “Bloom where you are planted”.

About lorraine

After a nasty fall from my bicycle, coming home from high school, I began suffering from migraines. After a term of Chiropractic adjustments, which helped but did not entirely stop the migraine headaches, my parents in desperation sent me to yoga classes, The only available evening class in our area was filled with pregnant women. I felt out of place as a shy teenager, but persevered. adjustment,breathing, meditation and yoga proved the only therapy that bought relief from the headaches. Feeling well I got on with life, married moved from my home town and forgot the daily yoga practices and there benefits. Coming back to Yoga and meditation helped me manage during the time of my father's Cancer. and death. Later when my Husband became ill the natural decision was to qualify as a Yoga, meditation teacher to further assist others through the difficult times of illness and recovery or death. I have now been benefiting from the science and art of Yoga, Meditation for well over twenty five years.
