Newsletter - June 2021
If I asked you what you wanted more than anything else you might simply answer “I want to be happy”.
It seems there are 2 sorts of happiness;
How do you feel after a yoga session or an uplifting talk, listening to the vedas or a classical concert, sharing truths in like minded company? Would you feel lifted, rested, quiet and yet full of fine energy?
Is there a different happiness when acquiring a new car, a Dyson hoover, booking a sumptuous holiday?
True lasting happiness will never be found in this transient/material world. So not to get too attached to our material world.
There is nothing wrong with having fun and playing your part well.
The Sanskrit word Leila means to play. Little children practice this most of the time, but as we grow older and up we can take things too seriously.
We form attachments to this material world.
This can take the fun out of it.
In fact attachments are the only reasons that we suffer.
Go with the flow
Set in the heart of the Cotswolds countryside, in the village of Whichford.
The surrounding woods are the most beautiful in England and at present are full of wild flowers.
For the last 3 years we have had a booking here which has had to be cancelled for one reason or another. And now we are finally going I would love you to come and have the experience of a weekend (9th – 11th July) at this magical place. It is a stunning venue and has a fine energy about it and yet is quiet and peaceful with its spring fed lake.
