Today is the 2nd day of Navratri.
Goddess Durga is worshipped as Brahmacharini. She holds a rosary hand and a kamandal in the left. She did long and an arduous penance to obtain Shiva as her consort. She is a symbol of loyalty, and wisdom and blesses you with moral courage and emotional strength.
We have our strengths and we need to ride on them to reach the finishing line.
“You were born with wings, why prefer to crawl through life.”
as Rumi said.
I got up in the morning to meditate and pacify the mind.
The rest of the day has gone on well.
There are no cravings and hunger pangs.
I ate a fruit bowl and plan to saute some barnyard millet rice later.
I seem happy and relaxed.
It seems that you are shedding all the extra baggage slowly and gradually.
It is not a feeling of deprivation but immense satiation and contentment.
I realised that I was more calm and patient and nothing seems to faze me.
I was looking at things with equanimity.
And doing more than I usually do.
