the past two days consisted of 14, yep 14, hours of sanskrit! wow. today was an interesting lecture on karma, more assists (my favorite), and tonight is chanting, meditation and watching of meet your meat. i haven't seen it yet (just googled it to link it for you) but hear it is quite upsetting. i have to dash off to the evening's session but wanted to share a few pearls from today's karma:
when you feel guilt or think you could have done something differently, remember that guilt is toxic. at the time that you do anything you do, it was the best you could do at that time. everyone else is doing the best they can do, too. may reflect later with, "i could/should have done better" but best to have the courage to accept that you did the best you could at that time. use your experience to begin planting new seeds.
i LOVE this. a reminder that we're all doing the best that we can and that even though we may wish we'd handled certain situations differently, it's best to not dwell on it.
ok, really must go. satsang in 9 minutes. kisses.
