Today my gratitude is for you

Today was Power Vinyasa with Cassandra.

Continuing the seemingly reliable trend of having a great class after what felt like an endless stretch of struggle, today was just one of those (good) days.

And today, my gratitude was for Cassandra, and what she has brought to my life with her guidance over the past 8 months. I think there was definitely something in me that was ready to do this work. But the connection I have felt to her message has really helped me feel like the entirety of this practice was something for me.

I am sure I have mentioned that I am not a "religious" person. But there's a space between "atheism" in terms of "nothingness" and traditional organized religion. I always lamented the fact that I didn't get the goodness of religion without believing in God. But the positive energy in our lives is not from a deity. It's from a sense of connectedness. Belonging. Purpose. Yoga practice is helping me find these things that I was missing.

The light in me recognizes, honors, and bows to the light in you.
