As a person who has struggled with personal wellness, I needed to make a change. I am a father and have become a yoga instructor as well as an Ayurvedic Wellness Ambassador in training. Through studying yoga locally with the Yoga Center Amherst and Ayurveda through The Ancient Way with Ananta Ripa Ajmera, I have been inspired to write spiritual poetry based on the energetic, spiritual, and ethereal lessons I am experiencing.
The following piece of writing was inspired after a wellness retreat in the Ayurvedic community that was hosted by Ananta, via THE WELL in New York City.
Yoga and Ayurveda have opened my life to the operator's manual to my soul's journey and can do so for anyone that seaks a deeper awareness of self care and self fulfillment.
Time for deliberation
Time to see what my soul is subjected to
Time to open up and learn
Time to learn to listen
Time to be able to understand myself
Time to be different
It's self-fulfilling prophecies
Does that mean what I thought…
Is supposed to be?
I'm talking about speaking into existence your own destiny
I'm talking about self-realization through internal creation
We are our own divine being casting out our existence into the star field energy fire
Moving like lightning waves across a live wire
Circulation of this mind contemplation
The spiritual destination
All souls are to be joined together as one
Or so it's told
Into one giant energy field
So how do you yield?
Do you swim forward with the waves and flow towards the current?
Do you sail backwards swirling in the cracks and crevices of your own mind, with no deterrent?
Destination rewind paralyzing,
The mind dies only crystallized through past existence
A soul's resistance towards understanding right now
Can I channel ancestors from lives past?
Can I learn lessons that this incarnation is trying to unravel?
Throughout time fields can I travel?
What is this higher information?
It's a slipstream energy field, Ananda, bliss of beingness
The truth of existence
The unmovable understanding of what is true
How the sky is blue
How the water flows
How the ancient words are told
How sound just happens into form
How sound waves travel
This is the norm
So how does your energy ricochet through this wild world and echo out into divineness to what
This form of audible communication
Our social grooming
Our oral medication
Longing for a space in the sky to be a star shining
On this spiritual food, I am dining.
