Today is a very auspicious day of the year ...a yoga holiday if you will but, i think we could all relate to it . It is Guru Purnima. The word "Guru" means "the one who brings us from darkness into light" Guru Purnima is a day to honor all of our teachers in life who have had opening our eyes and taught us something...no matter how big or small and brought us into light. It is as well a moment to honor our "Sat Guru " or inner Guru. The teacher that resides in us. This day falls on the full moon during the June/July months( according to the Indian Calender) So the energies are very strong cosmically.
Guru's could be anyone ... our first guru..our mothers, family, teachers, friends, fellow bloggers...someone you may meet for a brief moment but had the chance to broaden your view. I remember my beauty school teacher Mrs Gail Mattei 's words " You can learn something anywhere from anyone , you will always take away something" This was when we would complain about her taking us to workshops taught by elderly beauticians on how to do pin curls and use a Marcel iron. We wanted the savvy new stylist. well she was right! I learned more form the elderly stylist than I ever learned from the savvy ones AND their knowledge was longer lasting!!
I feel very fortunate to have had many teachers in my life...they have all been heaven sent and I am always truly humbled.
So today I honor my Mother , Mother in law, dearest friends, teachers, new blogger friends,
Take a moment today to honor all those who have taught you in the past, present and future who ever t may be. Most of all take a moment to honor the teacher within you !
here are some of my Guru's ...I wish oi had pictures of all of them!
