TTC/April/2012 - Peace, Love, and Chocolate
|Peace, Love, and Chocolate|
For some reason, all I could ever think of was, "Peace, love, and happiness." I'd answer as expected upon occasion, but perhaps did not seem entirely sincere - as this greatest goal of mine was so clear in the back of my mind, but seemed too silly to say. On our first day in class here, our instructor started talking about our common goal: peace, love, and happiness. I couldn't believe it - I finally found a place where I could say what I was I really thinking... and not sound a bit crazy. Six weeks to think and talk about my answers to these two questions - incredible.

... peace, and happiness. So in our search for peace and happiness, we sought a mountain-top experience this past Sunday morning. Rishikesh Yog Ashram organized a trip out to a temple in the mountains for several of us. After hiking to the top, we received a blessing and practiced some yoga. The views were incredible - quite inspiring of that we searched.
