My folks celebrated their ruby wedding anniversary today. Forty Licks is a favourite album that got a lot of play at my parents house back in the day. It was the Stones’ own fortieth anniversary compilation. Seems a fitting musical accompaniment for a sunny Sunday celebration. Congratulations guys.
Rohan shared a beautiful insight yesterday. It sums up a great deal about the way I feel right now and how I relate to my experience of reality. As time passes, it becomes more evident that folks who learn to consistently find joy don’t wait to lose something to appreciate it.

If you are not with a partner, learn to cultivate through breathwork, through using your inner muscles, locks and valves, with Mantra, Affirmations, silent meditation. Practice celibacy. Learn that your body is a temple, that it honours you daily with […]
