This weekend is another Anusara Yoga Immersion weekend. So I took today off from work to "prepare."

I intended it to be a really productive day. Clean the apartment. Get my car looked at. Go grocery shopping. Do my laundry. Etc.

I have done NOTHING.

Well, OK, maybe not exactly nothing. I did finish Life of Pi and the Immersion Manual for class tomorrow. And I paged through four or five catalogues of useless items.

But I haven't exactly done much that is useful. And I'm feeling really guilty about it.

It's another shocking example to me of how deeply I am caught up in the western culture of ratraceitis.

Upon deeper reflection, I've found that I have used today to prepare. Just not the way I expected. I love the yoga of happy little surprises.
