These were my thoughts today, when I felt the room was too hot for me again to do much. But I can always sit in Japanese style to exercise my left knee and leg as a whole.
The battle of ending 39 years of chronic pain with 7 years of struggles during Bikram practice is a fight that, fortunately, is worth fighting.
A friend said that she is addicted to the sweat. But I am addicted to the ‘squeaky clean’ feeling afterwards and the fact that I nearly always feel much better than when I came.
What I find rather ‘whimsical’ is the parallel between my inner Bikram battle / struggle / fight and my outer experiences and observations:
- having heard about battles of victims of white collar crimes since 1998 when they came to meetings I organised in the House of Lords
- exposing struggles of parents whose children were snatched
- fighting the good fight for justice, human rights and sanity in a world that seems to be there mainly so that we realise the difference between reality and ‘maya’ or illusion.
The other day I read one person’s bio who said that the purpose of life was ‘enlightenment’.
I guess, for me it is life long learning. For it seems that there is always more to learn: about Self, people, ideas and… software!
But will the world become less painful once I am painfree???
And will I have reasons to celebrate my software innovations being recognised and appreciated???
