As far as the watching of history and how we react to it as it unfolds… the timing of certain events in my life currently can only be described as cosmically arranged…
So, after a wonderful weekend where I did a Yoga-Tai Chi fusion workshop, had a blast dancing til the wee hours of morning at a wild, fun Punjabi wedding on Treasure Island, went on an intriguing date and worked on my Challenge of the Moonth….. I began to start feeling a vague uneasiness by Monday evening.

By Tuesday morning I had a cold, by evening I had fever and chills and aches and by nighttime I knew something was quite wrong. It was like my body was preparing for, and yielding to, something ominous, and curling up in fearful anticipation. Wednesday morning I woke up to read the full story of the planned terrorist attack unfolding in London.

And it all made sense now at a personal level. I am flying to London tomorrow for several months and perhaps there was some premonition of impending stress, turmoil and discomfort that my body (and spirit?) had sensed from the Universe as it was happening and before I had any sensory ‘information’ of it?

Now that I know, factually and intellectually, of course I am preparing, medicating, understanding and gearing up for defense. It’s interesting though, how much before the mind took over, something deeper and more in tune with the Universe had picked up on the interplay of my inner and outer worlds.
