Whomever I asked yesterday if they would practice today, I heard: Yes, of course.
The shala is closed today as there is the Ganesh festival. But the Ashtanga yoga students here are very committed: no day without yoga. I had planned to practice, too. But I didn't get out of bed this morning. When the alarm clock rang I switched it off and turned my body to the other side. Now I know that this was not such a good idea as I had a nightmare. I dreamed of my last job. Finally I got up. I had no bottled water at home so I headed for Vivien's breakfast cafe after the shower. I hoped very much that she was open today and she was open. Yepeee. I had a very good cup of very black and hot coffee (coffee must be black like the hell and hot like the sin) and an Indian breakfast, Indian bread with aubergine chutney. I ordered extra honey.
On my way home I bought bottled water. In front of the temple was a long queue. Do they all want that Ganesh removes the obstacles in their businsesses, I wondered. Usually people buy some flowers that they donate. I should pray to Ganesh, too. Still I have time to write my book, but I have not yet started. Please, Ganesh remove my obstacles: my obstacles come in form of laziness and doubts. Despite these difficulties I managed it to do some brainstorming on my contents while sitting at Vivien's breakfast cafe. Let's see what I can develop. Relax and all is coming.
