I thought it was an easy decision. Actually I thought it was no decision at all.
Some years ago I decided I wanted to do yoga teacher training with my teacher. He didn’t do that then but is about to this summer. Suddently universe chucks a spanner in the works and offers a seeminly incompatible out of the blue work opportunity. An instead of this being a work vs yoga decision I’m unexpectedly reviewing my whole life priorities.
I realise I am not giving my friends enough time – but then another teacher talks of non-attachment meaning people too. This quote speaks to me.
“Are you sad?”
“But your – your songs are sad.”
– My songs are of time and distance. The sadness is in you. Watch my arms. There is only the dance. These things you treasure are shells.”
― William Gibson, Count Zero
Maybe you are just shells. But you’re the kind of shells I’ll treasure forever.
