I recently watched a documentary on yoga. Even though I do not follow the Dalia Lama's teachings I was struck by something he said. He was asked by the seeker in the documentary how to find himself. The reply was simple-let go of everything that is not you. This resonated with me and I have mulled over it for a few weeks. I realize that I have many things in my life that are wonderful and nice but do not represent me. Funny how I learn things that I wish I knew all my life. I wish I felt free in my twenties to express the things I love instead of trying to fit in. Perhaps I will be able to instill these lessons in my children and then be wise enough to let them find the things they love even when I may not love those things.
