Soul in Wonder
My teacher's theme for the last yoga class of the session was the experience of wonder. She deftly wove the theme and a myriad of examples - both seasonal - and from her own life, into our practice.
It was truly a moment of synchronicity that on my way to class I was listening to the new CD by Miten and Deva Premal appropriately titled: "Soul in Wonder."
The title track is a simple piece with simple lyrics:
inarticulate speech of the heart,
I am a soul in wonder..."
As I sat for a long time at the river this morning - which was as still and as peaceful as I have seen it for a while - I thought of the lyrics of another piece on this CD:
"spirit of the river
i can hear you
i feel as if
i am deep inside your song
i see you laughing
will you carry me with you when i'm gone?"
