Almost Finding the Meaning of Life in India

[In yesterday’s blog about driving in India, I forgot the dedication. Dedicated to my daughters, Laura and Anna: please don’t drive like that].
Dedicated to Cary Koch Rogers, our first fitness instructor at Lifetime Fitness.

Cary, they just about killed us today. Don’t ever ask me to sit on the floor again. Here’s what the daily schedule looks like:

6 am-6:30 am Tea and Fruit
7 am-9am Hatha Yoga
9:15 am-10:15 am Pranayama and Yoga therapy
10:15 am-11:30 am Breakfast
11:30 am-12:30 pm Yoga Philosophy
12:45 pm-1:45 pm Yoga Anatomy
1:45 pm-4 pam Lunch break and self-study
4 pm-6:15 pm Vinyasa Yoga
6:15 pm-6:45 pm Tea
6:45 pm-8:00 pm Mantra and Meditation
8:00 Dinner

Tonight, I wish I were a cow or a monkey.

Why am doing this? For a yoga certificate that everyone gets anyway? It’s always been a question of meaning for me. Each day I have to making meaning in my life or I’m going to be up that infamous creek without a paddle. Meaning isn’t a given for any of us. None of us has it made in that department. Yes, life is ambiguous, but we can’t be ambivalent about the ambiguity. As long as we choose, we never lose—meaning in our lives.
