Thank you to Jmitch and K. for helping me to see the error of my ways as well as everyone else who got in touch, whether through comments or email, with kind words.
Thing is, I'm curious about Jmitch's comments on blogging as Karma yoga and Dharma
"Your karma yoga but also could be your dharma.
Your practice has been a great inspiration (and motivation) for me.
Somewhere in the Bhagavad Gita says:
"Is better to follow badly your own dharma, than follow the dharma of another one"
I especially like the Gita quote, better to follow your own dharma, however poorly.
I blog, however poorly, it's helped me with my own practice and seems it can be encouraging/motivating to others at times, even inspiring, just as others blogs have been inspiring to me. Of course, apparently, it's also frustrating, irritating and infuriating, but perhaps that's a good thing, shows we still have a way to go with our 'spiritual practice'.
I've also noticed how absurd it was, there was me troubled by the insular nature of practice and in response I go and make it more so by quitting the social aspect of sharing and supporting, stupid yogi.
K. reminded me too today, that this is something, this blog, not much perhaps but something and more importantly the cybershala, the blogosphere, something interesting going on out there.
Typically, since I decided to give it a rest, ten or so post ideas came up, what do I do with these, keep them to myself, seems selfish somehow. Perhaps most of them are just nonsense but there might be something there that's useful to somebody else that can be adapt, morphed into their own practice, home yogi's, we take what we can get and absorb it... or not.
Besides, I have this exceedingly cool new globe visitor app. that I can't get enough of ( top left).
So I'm back (after, what, a week) so whatimiss?
