I feel it’s long long time ago when I met Les for a first time.

He is my first Iyengar teacher, always smiling on his face with challenging and joyful practice.

Years years later, I also became Iyengar teacher, smiling as he does.

‘I’m always on your side.’ My friend said with smiling.

Sounds sweetest.

But is it possible?


Everyone has different body, different stand point, different view.

Never be the same.


If you have always same as mine, does it mean you don’t have yours?


If I must have always same as yours, does it mean I shouldn’t have mine?

That’s scary ideas.



I might not always on my side, my view, my convenience, my desire.

The more I attach them, the more I suffer.


Even body changes everyday.

Accept the difference between ex-me and me-now, me and you.

Follow the flow of life as it is.


Am I on your side? Maybe yes. Maybe not. So I smile always.


IMG_5768‘That one looks not attractive, but is sweet.’

She points a black thing on a market shelf.



It looks black, but is a purple carrot.

Peel the skin. Purple inside appears.

Purple color comes from Anthocyanin,

which is antioxidant.

Just slice and add in salad.

Crunchy sweetness entertains cheerfully.

Cook into cream or soup.

Smooth sweetness comforts gently.


Be young in body. Be calm in mind.

IMG_5747Why not?

*Why not?

Miss sound of waves, sea breeze with Pranayama and meditation.

Before closed eyes, stars were all over black sky.

When open eyes, Sun was rising over blue ocean. Full of energy.


That was Olop’s retreat I experienced in Bali,

which was serious study, peaceful mind and adventurous fun all together.


He is coming to Singapore, giving workshop coming December. Wow!

Of course I will be there. I’m waiting waiting waiting to see him!

The seats were not much left. Be in hurry. See you there!

‘Pick up 1000 good luck seeds. Then your dream comes true.’ They say.


I walked around for finding the red seeds – Saga seed.

I found one at the Fort conning park gate. It was tiny shiny red heart-shape.

Oh! Good symptom. Welcoming me!


Walk up the hill. Sweat.

Under a big tree, I find another one under the leaves.

Pick up. Then find another one.


Changing the standing point changes the view. A tiny red suddenly appears.

Being about to pick the tiny red, other red shine graze the sight. Mind goes.

The tiny red between fingertips slips into the hole. Gone.


Good luck is tiny and slippery. Watch patiently. Pick up one by one mindfully.

The effort for finding 1000 changes own attitude.

Dream comes true.
