Paying Attention

The other day after my meditation class, I asked the teacher about Ayunveda because he had referenced it a few times. It has to do with the way he eats, sleeps, and the whole rhythm of living a life balanced with nature. Since he's a runner, a yogi, and a meditator- he's my new mentor, altho he doesn't know it. So I just want to learn about the things he practices. He seems so healthy and balanced.

Anyway, I looked at some books about Ayunveda and was overwhelmed by how complicated it was. To the point of thinking, "oh well, whatever, that's just HIS thing, but it's way too complicated for ME."

But later that same day I noticed a short article about the subject popped up in my Yoga Journal. Then yesterday I got a little literature in the mail about wellness and one of the topics was a brief overview of Ayunveda!!! I had never even heard this word until a few weeks ago, but now that it's piqued my curiousity, it seems to be popping up everywhere.

It's like when you start shopping for a certain type of car and then you see them EVERYWHERE.There aren't more of them on the road than there were the day before, but now you're paying attention and so you're seeing them in such abundance.

Anyway, it just seems like the universe sometimes is really trying to help you out when you feel like giving up on something.
