final Race Report From Chi-filled Chama:  3 Medals in 2 Days…a Super Sacred Sweat!

Remind me again why the hell i should NOT raise my daughter to be a nordic ski racer? futilely yet steadfastly chasing last year’s champion, Clay Moseley – a world class cyclist – during last Sunday’s 10k Chama Ski Classic. elevation; close to 10,000’. remember, this the day AFTER racing a 15k Freestyle race at the same elevation! as you can see, i’ve at least manufactured a big gap between myself and third place…more importantly, i’m trying to put seconds between myself and anyone else in the King Of The Mountain (KOM) competition which goes to the fastest Classic 10k skier and 5k Snowshoer…as you’ll soon read, i would lose my KOM title by 40 seconds. photo by Pat Hogan.

kitchen shiva

Most Noble Sangha,

make no mistake; along the Spiritual Path – among Western Awakened Fitness Warriors – the Mindful Practice of Hand Washing Dishes should be leaped toward by any sincere WF Student, not shied away from.

It’s a funny thing, ain’t it?
You and i Here Now, again?
Beginning Again and Again, and Endlessly Again until Enlightenment?
According to the Ancient Enlightened Ones? You and i have been attracted toward one another for lifetimes – not unlike the way Moth Beings are attracted indiscriminately toward the Light…at whatever the cost.

According to the Ancient Enlightened Ones, you and i – at whatever Level – have reConnected in this particular Dharma Vehicle known as the Internet, due to our past karma.

We still – you and i – have Work to do.

The most common question ilg gets asked by those New to my Path is typical; “How soon can I expect results?”
Here are the Three Wholistic Realizations Which Must Flower In Your Heart:

You Won’t Believe How Healthy And TASTY Is This Dish!!!

Serves 4 Noble WF Warriors, Prep Time; 20 Mindful minutes

When i instructed Ananda to start gathering more Conscious-Parent Mealtimes for our next WF Mealtime Guidebook, ilg once again underestimated the innumerable siddhi’s which radiate like bicycle wheel spokes from my Beloved’s capacity. This one, what i call, CONSCIOUS COUSCOUS ACA (the ACA means with Apricots, Currants, and Almonds) has GOT to be one of her most recent finest dishes! Rinpoche Dewachen (3) absolutely DEVOURS this dish with gusto leeching from her precious eyes! To our Clan, this dish tastes like Heaven-sent candy that is really, really healthy for all yogic and warrior constitutions! Enjoy and let me what you think! I’m posting this in the WF SanghaLounge as well…it’s kinda like our next cookbook-in-progress, always accessible to Members.
