Remember the Lotus

Whenever you should doubt your self-worth, remember the lotus flower.  Even though it plunges to life from beneath the mud, it does not allow the dirt that surrounds it to affect its growth or beauty.  Suzy Kassem. The lotus flower is considered a sacred symbol.  The Lotus symbolizes purity, beauty, majesty, grace, fertility, knowledge and serenity.  The lotus will fluorish in murky waters, pushing through mud and mire.  The petals break through and reach toward the sun, while the leaves stay afloat as they shine in the light.

Symbolically, lotus petals can be found in the chakra symbols.  Each chakra has a specific number of petals, representing ascending vibrational frequencies.  The state of enlightenment is represented by the thousand-petal lotus.

Where've Ya' Been?


I haven't written a blog post since my fourth yoga post.  I've been a little "under the weather" lately.  Did ya' miss me? HA!

Yoga didn't work out so well for me (waaaahhhh)!  After my third class, I had a great deal of difficulty with my low back.  So much so that I did not attend the forth or final class.  I guess that makes me an "Absolute Beginners" Yoga Drop-out . . . sheesh!

I was unable to stand up straight for about three weeks.  I don't believe that Yoga was the cause, rather I'd done some early Spring cleaning and got a reminder that I shouldn't do stuff like that!  However, after the second Yoga class, I did have some pain in my low back, and went to the third class against my better judgment.

Sometimes determination can be the enemy . . . HA!

Because of my aches and pains, I thought it best to give my back a rest and stay away from the computer for a while.  I apologize for not responding to your comments sooner!  Thank you all so much for visiting my blog even though I haven't had much content to read lately.  Hopefully I am back now!

My back had gotten so bad that I had to wear a back brace, and I'd even gone out and purchased another cane . . . just in case.  I had a great deal of difficulty getting up and down, and with standing for more than a few minutes.  I was starting to feel like I did three years ago before I lost sixty pounds when I was using a cane daily.  I struggled with whether or not I should buy another one, as I'd put mine aside a few months after I'd started losing weight, and hadn't used it since.  My heart ached over the thought of having to rely on a cane again.  Thank God for now I haven't had to use it.

I am still struggling with pain, but at least I am able to stand up straight again!  : )   I have also had trouble with my joints aching, particularly in my shoulders and wrists.  I am hoping that it's just the cold weather and that it will pass when it warms up . . . HURRY UP Spring!

I am starting to feel a little "Over the HILL"!  I wonder if I can trade my body in on a newer model . . .    ; )  But, as the old saying goes, "all good things get better with age" . . . art, antiques, friendship, wine and cheese : P

I wonder if that applies to people!

Speaking of wine and cheese, my husband is a (very talented) amateur winemaker.  I call him my "kitchen chemist"!  We picked our backyard concord grapes and some muscadines late last summer.  He aged the concords in a (small) oak barrel and it was delicious when we first bottled it.  Even after a few months in the basement, the flavor has mellowed out and, well . . .

I am IMPRESSED with his mad skills!  ; )

We have set aside a few bottles to drink on special occasions, and plan to let it age at least five years before drinking it.  I am hoping that in five years, I will have gotten "better with age" as well : )

Now that I have "wined" long enough . . . How are you?
