In Sanskrit, /ah – nee – chuh/. You know the old saying “Don’t like the weather? Stick around. It’ll change!”? That’s anicha. Meditating on this concept can both ease hardship and encourage us to relish the singular delights of each moment. Either way, this particular sensation, feeling or attachment will cease to be and we will be in another, so get to know this one, in this moment. Dive deep, experience fully and don’t hold on: this rollercoaster doesn’t have safety restraints. The only way you can fall off is to hold on.
On that note, our schedule will be changing. We’re making class longer, adding a second class each week and making our Tuesday time later. Beginning the first of December, class will be held for an hour and a half from 3:00pm til 4:30 pm each Tuesday and Friday.
I also wanted to get this web address out to one of our community who asked for poetry and writing connections: http://www.poetz.com/nm/ You’ll find events here, and through those you’ll find a wealth of information.
Change. During the holidays we often become sentimentally attached to what has been or what we would like to have been. Consider whether a happier response might just be to treat these holy days as sacred – whatever tradition you live in. And the sacred demands a response from us as we are now, in this moment. To whatever guise it’s taking right here, right now.
