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.
