Where Have I Been?

It’s been a long time since I posted; where have I been?

The crux of my absence revolves around a bad fall I had while hiking.  Just like that the life I was living came to a halt. Was life trying to tell me something?  Or had I just been careless?  Either way, the result was the same.  A couple of broken bones, surgery, and complications ended my traveling, teaching, and freedom of mobility.

I had no choice but to sit in my physical pain and mental restlessness.  I also had to deal with my emotional turmoil over events so rapidly happening in my country.  I did the only thing that made sense to me; I turned to yoga philosophy for answers.  I reflected, I digested, I made friends with my breath, and imbibed in moments of self-pity.  When my arm could handle a book, I began to read wisdom texts.  I was on a mission to find answers.

All of this led me to put thoughts on paper in order to understand, digest, and find relevance in what I was experiencing.  It also led to a book in process that you will be hearing more about in the upcoming months.  (And thankfully, time has healed my body as well.)

Do I have it all figured out?  Not even close.  Am I still feeling a turmoil of emotions over events in my country and the world?  An unequivocal yes.  But in my quest the last few years, I have found sustaining moments of peace and joy, a deeper understanding, and wise guidance from the ancient masters.  In upcoming monthly posts, I will be sharing what I have learned in the hope that this ancient wisdom will resonate with you as it is with me. I will also be sharing weekly thoughts on Instagram (@deborahadele.official). 

 Thank you for sharing this journey with me.
