The sun shines down,
and its image reflects a thousand
different pots filled with water.

The reflections are many,
but they are each reflecting the same sun.

Similarly, when we come to know who we truly are,
we will see ourselves in all people.


Last night I spent the evening with a wonderful girlfriend and Dr. Drew Pinski.  Okay, well, we had to share Dr. Drew with about a hundred other people, although we did get to meet him personally and have some pictures taken.  Anyway, the whole night was just fantastic.

Over some yummy sushi and endless glasses of water, M and I came to see that so much of our lives parallel each other.  From the most basic of things to the more intimate, personal moments of growth and grief, we seem to be walking on paths that are side by side.  Every few moments we just burst into near hysterical giggle fits because, really, when does this happen to folks?  When do you meet with someone and when you look at them you see yourself?

It happens when you start being who you really, authentically are.  Or, apparently, it happens even when you are just starting to see who your authentic self.  Tired of being who others felt we should be, who we felt we should be, we have both just decided to follow our instinct and be who we are right here, right now.  Liberation!  Growth!  Peace!  Love!  Yoga!  😉

Interestingly enough, Dr. Drew talked about honoring your instinct last night.  Over and over again he touched on subjects that M and I had just discussed at dinner.  There are no coincidences.
