About YogiBlog

 

To my great and grateful surprise, this blog has transformed from an interesting series of stories designed to entertain, inform, amuse and hopefully, inspire. The stories begin to reveal the many people who have touched my life. Some were conscious of being teachers, others just were themselves and taught by example. This includes many challenging situations I did not enjoy at the time. These varied people offered me opportunities to learn, grow and evolve. I am humbled by the number, quality, beauty, power, devotion, and divine spirit that has come through every person in my life. Even those few who one might find hard to put in this category. Looking back, I am able to see divine spirit in each of them.
