The end of the year, a time to review what has been so far… We stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before us. Today I am melting in gratitude to the yogic hearts that built Master Yoga for over 20 years, so many yogis doing so many poses and giving so much of their love and support. It’s uncountable!
The work of the current Board members is just the tip of the iceberg, the part that shows, but they stand on the shoulders of the Board members who worked hard on Svaroopis’ behalf for many years. I count myself in that group, though they tackled big chunks of the work without me in recent years. But even those Board members were standing on the shoulders of those who worked on the community’s behalf – that’s what a not-for-profit organization does: provide benefit to others!
While the Board members stand in the spotlight, the staff members that do all the behind-scenes work are to be honored and thanked. And the teachers – without whom we would have nothing; how can you begin to thank your own teacher.
Which brings me full circle to my teacher, of course. For me, it’s all about Baba. What i bring you is what He gave me. It is my honor and my duty to share. So i thank all who support the continuing process – the consolidated process, even as we look ahead. The Desmond awaits, our new home for consolidated programs, with housing, meals and classes all wonderfully consolidated into one location. We begin on Friday! The first program of the new year. Thus one year ends and a new one begins. With love for all that has passed, and all who contributed to its process. With love to all that will come and all who will make it be what it will be.
Thank you, Baba.
