The mind and its tricks in sabotaging my well being of finding joy

Hello Lovely Yogis


Just wanted to share some of the stunning views from my balcony and the village that I am staying prior to teaching a yoga retreat at Vigla Village in Spartia. The mind never ceases to amaze me, arrived in Kefalonia safely, picked up the car and started to drive,  of course took off with no water and the roads over the mountain on my way to Agios Efimia which is my home for the few days prior to teaching yoga retreat, well back to the mind, started to get thirsty and hungry by now it was 3pm of course being in the land of the Gods, the Divine provides and there in this mountainous road a lonely restaurant appeared, with the most magnificent views of the harbour over Sami and mountains behind the sea, Kallithea Tavern. There I was praising the Divine for finding this place and wonderful accommodating staff who were willing to change menu to suit my needs, and felt as though all was. Well in my world, unknown to me the builder arrived to do repairs to a door right where was sitting, from the perfect place my mind had conjure up just less than 10 minutes before was screaming let me out of here as he continued to drill, I had to smile at the mind, took a breath, switched off my hearing aids and realised that I could still see the beauty before me. After a yummy  lunch made my way down the mountain to Agias Efimia the place I love in kefolania, again the mind was entertained all the way by the beautiful views as I meandered around each corner to reveal yet another beautiful den of the sea  found the apartments without getting lost and was so excited to see yet again another splendid views but again within less than 10 minutes, I started thinking room too small, shower room too small, how am I going to cope when Sandy arrives on Saturday? This is how mind constantly flits from duality, and again I bow to the practice every time I notice and don't react, and remember Pantaljali sutra"until the pairs of opposites cease to exist the is suffering. So enjoy these pictures and stay awake, watch the mind, don't let it sabotage your beautiful day. Hari Om
