Morning Stress Relief

Hahaha! I know what some of you are thinking. Um, why not?

Today is the first day of my Christmas vacation. I have a week off.  2016 has been very rough on all of us. I need a break.

In keeping with the downtime and the natural winter world, I am going to try to spend some time outdoors, walking and destressing and playing Pokemon Go. I’m just kidding about the Pokemon Go. (Or *am* I?) I’m wondering if there are any pokemon near the abandoned country club not too far away…

I listen to this song when I need to destress. The phrasing is intentional. It is just long enough for deep breathing. The song is by Snatum Kaur, a Sikh singer. Sikhism doesn’t get enough attention. Very enlightened.

Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo as interpreted in this song mean:

Oh my Beloved
Kindness of the Heart
Breath of Life
I bow to You

Divine Teacher
Beloved Friend
I bow to You
again and again

Sounds lovely. Bow to the divine spirit in the people you live with.

  2. Please watch this short video if you haven’t already seen it. It’s the only thing so far that has given me hope for the future of our country.

  3. Thanks MSO.
