I am reading a great book called Open to Desire -Embracing a Lust for Life, Insights from Buddhism and Psychotherapy by Mark Epstein MD. In it he talks about how desire can be used to Awaken to our Divine nature. In one chapter he mentions how women often have trouble voicing their desires. Reading that helped me to looked at my desire to recieve help from others which I seldom verbalize. I highly recommend reading this book and I thank my daughter-in-law Tara for showing it to me.
I have been sick for several weeks and I am finally beginning to feel better. The lesson I have learned is that by letting go of control and surrending I was finally able to ask for and receive help I desired. I saw how I am much more comfortable giving than receiving. I want to thank my son, Elijah for taking care of me when I went to see him. He helped me to realize how much I wanted someone to be there for me. Tara thanks for your concern and telling Eli I was sicker than I let on.

Tantra for Awakening January Newsletter http://bit.ly/713TNB
Happy 2010! I hope the new year is treating you well. I have been blessed with a new grandson, Zev Elijah. I spent 3 weeks with him and his parents in Atlanta. Holding him and looking into his eyes made me wonder what the world will be like when he becomes an adult.
There is a lot of fear and suffering on the planet right now. Tantra teaches us how to quiet the monkey mind and recognize our true nature as Consciousness beyond form. We learn to appreciate being a human even when we are faced with challenges. We discover the suffering is a choice. When we let go of our attachment to outcome we suddenly are free.
Humanity is under going a major shift in consciousness at this time. It requires us to be mindful and not collapse into fear or victim hood. We need be present, stay connected and surrender into flow of what is arising. I look forward to the journey. I hope that the world we leave of grandchildren will be one that is based on love, respect, sustainability and diversity.
