Something as small as an image can change my whole emotional state, and this turbulence makes me very aware how I am still attached to the objects of my senses. I know I am so far from the equanimity the Gita speaks of, and as my heart ached today I felt hopeless for a moment. Then I remembered the line that I always come back to. Again and again the Gita gives me hope, and again I have to extend my Love to my Guruji for sharing this with me. Chapter 2 v. 40
Ne ha bhikramanaso sti
Pratyavayo na vidyate
svalpam apy asya dharmasya
trayare mahato bhayat
No effort on the Yoga path is ever lost, nor can any obstacle hold one back forever. Just a little progress on this path can protect one from the greatest fear.
So it's back to the meditation coushion for another round with faith and resolve.
