We are all one, but different

Last weekend we received our official Welcome Ceremony at the Narara Eco Village, an hour north of Sydney. A long time has passed since I have written regularly, partially due to more time spend turning inwards, partially due to lots of yoga teaching, retreats and workshops which – together with the homeschooling of my three, a sailing boat to loath and love, freelance writing commitment and, yes, believe it or not, time to meditate and dance – left my blogging tank empty.

Right now, however, I’m feeling a new wave of sharing enthusiasm as the sangha, my community, whether in yoga, at the Village, amongst fellow sailors and far out into this world with you, is after all something that gives me energy and joy. As such, let me share the beautiful poem we were welcomed with at Narara as we walked through the welcoming spiral. I hope it makes your heart beat faster, just like it did with mine.

Namaste, soul greetings – Dini.

We are all one but different,                                                                                                                                                Different but the same.                                                                                                                                                   Created by the one light we are each given a name.                                                                                                     Some of us are insects,                                                                                                                                                      Some are animals too,                                                                                                                                                      Some of us are people                                                                                                                                                        Just like me and you.                                                                                                                                                         We all share the same moon                                                                                                                                                We also have one sun                                                                                                                                                      We all live on planet earth                                                                                                                                                 The air we breathe is one.                                                                                                                                                    We all have different feelings                                                                                                                                           We all make different sounds                                                                                                                                                     We all see things individually                                                                                                                                           Like what makes the world go round                                                                                                                                   The light that shines within our hearts is the love that makes us care                                                                                          Creating a world full of miracles in a universe that we share.                                                                                        Walk lightly on this sacred land,                                                                                                                                          Bless everything you see,                                                                                                                                                    The light of love glows everywhere,                                                                                                                                        In every rock, every being, every tree.
