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.
