About YogiBlog

 

To my great surprise, this blog has transformed from a collection of interesting stories to reveal a greater purpose. A discovery of the many amazing people who have been in my life. I am humbled by the quality, beauty, power, devotion, and divine spirit that has come through every one. Looking back, I am able to see divine spirit in each of them.
