Once again, the question I’m being asked most these days is “how does it feel to be home?”
And the answer is the same as it was the last two times I came home; it’s weird. But I think I can identify the weirdness a little easier now due to some reflection.
You see when overseas, there’s always something that a little bit of a challenge. There’s the effort to communicate for one, in a space where I don’t speak the language. To feed and water myself and try to stay cool. (Or warm when I was in the United States.) Every day there’s something that needs to be done that isn’t easy.
But now that I’m home I don’t have those daily struggles. There’s a fridge full of delicious food (thanks to my mum), everyone speaks English, the wifi works beautifully and there’s a huge tv with a hundred channels, all of which I can understand.
So, home is comfortable and easy. But that’s why I left in the first place because it’s the edge of the earth that I want to look over and see how to get down.
Before I came on the long journey home, I went back to Los Angeles for all of 30 hours. I spent those 30 hours with my gorgeous friend, Cheyanne. She took me into her home and arms when I got there very late at night.
We watched movies, ate vegan fast food and danced around her house all night. She is a light in my life and I’m always so grateful for her connection and love.
Online Yoga Classes
An exciting new adventure that I’m taking on is live, online yoga classes. Anyone can come and join my class from anywhere in the world! It’s actually amazing.
I’m there able to give you alignment hints and help out with your practice right there, in the moment. It’s a beautiful way to practice with me from wherever you are.
My opinion on the end of the world
I’m not going to write the name of what’s going on, because the media has already mentioned its name over 1 billion times. That is more than aids, SARS, swine and bird flu and Ebola.
Yes, people are sick. I understand that. But you know what’s more sickening than this actual virus going around? The media blowing it up so bloody far that it creates one of the most toxic things on the planet; fear.
Fear is what is feeding this. And it is what divides us and makes everyone buy out the supermarkets of toilet paper, rice and pasta.
Don’t let fear win. Don’t believe everything you read (including this). This is my opinion on what I have read and experienced in my community and society.
Let’s instead, come from a place of love. How can you help not spread hysteria, but spread a more mindful approach to this? What would a person in love with themselves do?
Do that instead. Do that.
