Here I am MCing for KAN-WIN, my fave women's advocacy group. I am honored to annually host their fund raiser. This was back in October. It's now December - where did the time go?!
Life keeps flowing, how am I engaging with it? I have so much online work to do. So many yoga classes to teach. And I compulsively organize events. Dinners with friends, benefit rock shows, MedMobs, producing a play for my theater company, A-Squared Theatre Workshop for next May, and more and more and more.
I create a world wind of activity. I grew up in chaos and am used to frenetic energy. I use this compulsion of activity for the powers of good, or I try to. Somedays I let my activities come before my meditation practice, which is not right.
In order for me to stay grounded to MC events, organize events, and perform at events, I need to create a grand stand of an event inside my soul. I need to sit quietly, make time for my inner self and go inwards. This is how I can engage with the flowing and going outside world, by grounding my internal world. Ready? Set? Go...inwards! Let the world flow and go! I'm ready.
