Life, a Celebration

Photo by myself

Life is a Celebration every moment we notice our blessings and happiness.

Whenever I see a rainbow it seems to be a very personal experience as if the rainbow appeared just for me to see, or perhaps I am wherever I am, just so I would see the rainbow.

There are times I feel so blessed, I wonder whether I am celebrating life itself or celebrating myself in life.

I feel utmost reverence and gratitude for getting to be alive on this planet, surrounded by angels and lessons exactly as needed for my evolution. It is my insistence to discover, understand and carve out my authentic being while embracing the gifts and trials of familial roles and relations. What a privilege to get to pursue the spiritual while getting to traverse the precious worldly.

I look at this lifetime as a series of rebirths into different versions of me. Some rebirths are unexpected painful ones and some are inherently woven to become invisible in the fabric of life.

I don’t feel any number to my age. Parts of my childhood self are still catching up with the growing up. There are moments I feel whole in the present, and there are moments I am being pulled back into my smallness or forward discontentedly into the future.

When I found the language of my offering to the world through becoming a yoga teacher – I pursued it relentlessly, got designated E-RYT 500. In short, that means I have completed 2000 plus some big number hours of teaching and facilitating transformation for others in my humble capacity, and completed the required education for that.

I am thrilled to find myself at yet another tunnel of rebirth. I am claiming this one to be a happy kind of rebirth as I am choosing to become a beginner student again with a 4 year long Yoga Therapist Training with my teacher Chase Bossart and his school Yoga Well Institute. Unlike my other rebirths of emerging into the unknowns, this one feels so exciting for discovering what would become of me at the end of the next 5 years.

Dear WordPress friends, all of you are an exquisite contribution to my being here today in one way or another. I feel deep gratitude for You and this rich space for heartfelt expressions, authentic emergence, and truthful cultivation of our life journeys.

Life is a Celebration every moment we notice our blessings and happiness.

  1. What a blessing for the chance to experience a dream coming true, which truly does feel like a rebirth, a new chapter or even a brand new book of our life. It’s so inspiring to read your post and think, maybe I can have a rebirth too.

    • Dear Hetty I am so happy and humbled to know my sharing inspires you πŸ’› As we continue to imagine what we want our life to look like, follow that inner voice, commit to self love and self care in all situations, life begins to unfold in unimagined ways and that feels like a rebirth. It is important to trust the process. Thank you for visiting and sharing your thoughts, it means a lot to me. Much Love and my Best Wishes for you πŸ’›πŸŒΉβœ¨

  6. Pragalbha, our soul in the form of the human body has this one life to achieve what we preceive to be our purpose in this material world, before it can seek its release and go back into the ether and be assimilated with the energy of the universe.

    You are one of those blessed humans who have achieved a “rebirth” through the kindness and purity of your soul. I am sure your chosen path will lead you to enlightenment and consequently inner peace. I am happy for you and offer my best wishes for your futue endeavours.

    I will go through the website on your yoga work and look forward to learning valuable lessons thereof.

  8. A lovely post, filled with authenticity, love and light. Resonates in the heart center deeply. I was just taking with a good friend of mine about the wonder that lives inside of moments when we are present to the Love and Blessings already there. My friend said something like, it’s like magic. I chuckled deeply, as the knowing living within this Being knows this space deeply, and it is just like that. The Magic living inside the leaf as it dances in the wind, a pebble that tumbles down the slope of the walkway, a rainbow in the sky. The happenings are there for us, just as they are, in each of those moments. Celebrating these moments with you, my friend. I also love your share about rebirth, and adore the way you write about age, and childhood catching up to you. This also resonates deeply. As each moment is birthed anew, I feel a sense of awe at the detachment to concepts like age, and time. For, these concepts only live in presence, if and when we give power and meaning to them. Otherwise they are merely concepts that live in language. I am excited about your nΓ©w journey, and wish you all the best in this new endeavor. A glorious post, Pragalbha. πŸ™πŸ’™

    • Celebrating these moments with you, my friend – I read till here first and took a deep pause in those words and that moment. Everything you said before that was a flawless poetry of thoughts, just like how you would write. Thank you for bringing the Magic and celebration of life together for me my friend, what a precious privilege you offer with your being here.

      And what a fulfilling joy that you know what I am saying about age and all that. I questioned my sanity before I confirmed that it is exactly how I feel for some years now and there is no denying of it. You describe so beautifully affirming for me. Infinite Gratitude to have your knowing attention, thank you Jeff πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’›βœ¨

  9. What an exciting journey! All of it. That which is behind (and still within because it never leaves us, even as it transforms us) and that which is ahead!

    And what commitment!

    And thank you for these words, “What a privilege to get to pursue the spiritual while getting to traverse the precious worldly.”

    I am soaking in their truth and beauty.

  11. First of all, congratulations on your new beginning and rebirth! It’s funny how we can rack up hours and experience when we’re doing something we actually enjoy ❀

    So happy to also have met you in this small, but vast space, Pragalbha! You always have the "right" words at the "right" time.

  12. Tears of joy for you, Prag. I am so happy for you that you are discovering more of you and going deeper and wider then ever before. So many of us at this time are experience an out-branching the likes I’ve never witnessed before. Life is mystical, magical, powerful and when we align with the Light and in Love, what transpires is mind-blowing. The Blessings you are walking into will be like no others. Know you are being guided by Angels and Loving Beings who know you chose to be incarnated at this most glorious time in Earth’s history. Much Love to you!!! xo

    • You are certainly my earthly angel guiding, inspiring, lighting, empowering my way. How you fill me with the light and love of life itself, not allowing even a small inch of slipping down from my track, my journey, my growth until now & ahead – you do this by acknowledging and affirming from your deep knowing wisdom. Your words question my tendency of waking up lost or go through self doubts – why would I ever do that? – my utmost gratitude for your blessed kind support and presence here πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’›

      • Oh my goodness. You’ve got the tears going here. I sit here in such gratitude and in complete humbleness that all the very hard work I’ve done for years has formed into who I am so that I can touch those who are ready. The light explodes and expands and LOVE shall free you in ways you won’t even see coming. God bless you for telling me what you just did. To have an open heart such as yours is such a thrill for me. Oh, Prag!! I am just so proud of you for I have witnessed such great growth in you over the years. And there will be so much more to come as well. Just wow!! xo

  13. “There are moments I feel whole in the present, and there are moments I am being pulled back into my smallness or forward discontentedly into the future.” Such refreshing honesty. We can strive to be the best version of ourselves while being kind to ourselves when we slip and fall.
