“Create Yourself. Be Yourself Your Poem.” Oscar Wilde
I love this quote from Oscar Wilde! How are you enjoying National Poetry Month? Are you writing or reading poetry?
I have been working on creating myself and being my own poem for a long time but especially all summer, and more so since August 2011 when I didn’t go back to the college where I usually teach.
Instead, I worked as a nanny at Burning Man, then I started a Yogic Philosphy class at the Ventura Yoga Studio with Bryan Legere, then I started a PhD in Depth Psychology at the Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara.
As part of my homework for my yoga philosphy class, we are to write down and read and review our dharma every day. And I tell you life has given me many opportunities since February 2010 to ponder it.
We also have to practice a different emotional state each day. Today it’s “indifference” which my teacher also expressed as non-judgement.
