I have absolutely no agenda for this post. It's kinda nice. Just a general check in. The monsoon season has semi-officially started in New Mexico. Living in a desert, I forget how nourishing the rain can be. There is some sort of calming effect it has on your being. Walking out into even an ounce of humidity is a blessing you take for granted.
Water represents rasa in ayurveda. Rasa is the first tissue system that we look at in ayurveda. The healthiness of rasa dictates the healthiness of the rest of the tissues. It's important to take care of it first and foremost. Water nourishes rasa. Rasa nourishes everything else in the body. Get it?
Just as the rain nourishes and quenches the desert, I get reminded of the fact that we too, need to do that which goes deep into our beings. What are the extra practices you are doing that go deep down? The kinds that create a sort of reset, that connects you back to your better self. It's totally cool. We all need it!
The rains in New Mexico really is "monsoon season". Once a year, a huge downpour to reset and set up the desert for months to come. What are you doing to set yourself up for months to come?
The rain, the rasa...markers for us, well, staying sane. Find grace for yourself. Take some time to take care of what you need to make you, you.
Nature has a way of reminding us of things that we need to know at the moments we need them the most. Stepping outside of our little world, and just looking out the window may be an incredible saving grace.
Much nourishing love to all of you.
