Getting ready to leave for India in the next few weeks and reflecting on how grateful I am for the past year in Colorado. The teachings and retreats we attended, growing both our practice and business, connecting with different communities and exploring the beautiful nature. We’ve grown a lot. The vulnerability is creeping in again, that familiar feeling of the excitement of what’s to come and the fear of letting go. In a recent teaching, I heard a teacher say that renunciation is not about giving up this or that, it’s not about not caring about things anymore. It’s about putting yourself in line with the teachings so that you can better yourself and others. It’s really hard to give up the familiar comforts of living here but I hope that through our meditation practice and study in India we can cultivate ourselves to be of more benefit to others. It might not seem logical or practical, I’m not going to India for specifically business reasons. I’m following my heart and my devotion to making the world a better place.
