The reason I have stuck with yoga and meditation and why I continue to inquire into several maps of the territory is because I have a desire to rise above the condition I found myself in with the diabetes I acquired at age 14.
It is such a difficult condition. Often times it becomes overwhelming.
I am on a social website of people with type 1 diabetes and most are struggling most of the time. We ride a roller coaster of blood glucose levels even though we have insulin pumps and Continuous glucose monitors. Type 1 diabetes is misunderstood condition. It requires 24/7 monitoring and the swings in blood sugar levels we experience affect how we feel, function and even behave.
However, there is always a polar opposite to anything and everything that arises in this realm of existence. This is not my opinion. It is a scientific fact.
And the blessing of the curse of my chronic condition combined with my desire to “cure” it is that I have been merited with an awareness of WHY.
Why the struggle? Why the suffering? What is the reason? What is the object of the game?
I’m not telling you I know the answer.
I just have been blessed with an opening in my consciousness to receive the answer.
And the best way to explain what I see is that the goal of the game of life is ……….. ………. …… To Ascend.
The yoga journey is a path of Ascension…….A path back hOMe.
One of my favorite yogis right now is staying current with what is happening around us.
