Personally, I have always felt that I am blessed to be from the original Vedic tradition and was brought up with true wisdom of these ancient ways. In addition, I myself am certified in several natural healing modalities and have been gifted with artistic and musical abilities.
But it is one thing to have all the knowledge in the world and another to live by its wisdom. Such a strong foundation really helped me to weather many a storm that life sent my way.
It seemed easier to simply concentrate on work instead of truly working on myself and living a life, where I was really happy- truly in sync with myself- where I was implementing all the wise ideas and living in a way that allows me to be in genuine unison with life energy itself (true philosophy and meaning of Yoga).
I live in a super beautiful city (Calgary) very near to the Canadian Rockies which is one of the most beautiful places in the world! Though I had visited the main "touristy" spots, I had not really explored the Rockies, my original reason for specifically immigrating to Canada.
And, like all the other challenges in my life, I intend to face these challenges, learn and work thru them towards my goal- which is to live a natural, healthy lifestyle.
A lifestyle where I am not only living in a green and sustainable manner (which is good for our earth) but also where I feel true happiness and contentment which is experienced when one is in "Yoga"- i.e. in unison with life-energy.
