This is one moment in timeAfter an incredible session of thai massage, I was reminded of Whitney Houston’s song "give me one moment in time", and as soon as these words crossed my mind they were replaced with "this is one moment in time".

The impact of the massage was very powerful, I was aware that day that there was some surrendering waiting to happen. Surrender, a word I often use when I am teaching yoga, contains two emotions, release and embracing/accepting. My own surrender happened with the release, as a flood gate of tears….the me that was observing the me through this process saw the emotional blockages that were washing away and the embracing that was happening. It happened like a flash back, yet it was the moment in time. The feeling of surrender, happened, and the residual feeling was of immense gratitude. Adam a great yoga teacher, and a an amazing healer, both through his yoga and his massage, sat there for a long time, his silent support being emitted through his presence and energy.

I lay there for a long time, hearing the sounds of the nearby river, sensing and knowing that this life is as beautiful as it is challenging. The life or self-realization journey brings one to different cross-road and check points. There is no detour, you remain on the path, with a smile, or a tear, facing what is happening in the moment, as you notice your feelings and reactions…….the space created through the surrender, soon begins to fill with gratitude.

Tu Eres Mi Otro Yo – (You Are My Other Self). A Mayan concept of unity, we learn to be ourselves through our relationships with others.
