A lot of us have heard the famous saying attributed to the ancient sage Lao Tsu (Laozi) from his book Tao Te Ching (Dao De Jing) chapter 64 which states "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." Each step we take defines who we are and how we will manifest our potentials to live a full and amazing life! It was on this very date that I immigrated to the United States from my island country of Taiwan. That was a solo journey.
Together you and I have recently witnessed many new beginnings: a new year, a new decade, the beginning of a new 12 year cycle in the Chinese Lunar calendar starting with the Year of the Rat. It is really an auspicious moment for exploring possibilities! You could possibly try a new class, a new hobby, a new food, a new place to visit and other possibilities. Your choices are vast!
Also to my understanding 2020 numerically is very special since it is a pair of the same number. Things in pairs hold positive significance for the Chinese people. I wish all of you the magic of this moment to begin your quest for achieving better health, more relaxation, inner peace and joy in the present moment!
I am filled with wonder, gratitude and awe for the journeys we travel and for the teachers we meet along the way.
