What an amazing feeling when you totally open your heart, trust and let go of fears and let the ‘light’ take care of the rest. This photo is from Patnem, India. This was one of those moments for me that I will never forget how I felt. Connected, whole, easy, being taken care of and much more that are difficult to explain with the words. Sometimes, all we need to do is trust the ‘light’ or the ‘inner self’ and and do the poses that seems impossible to us, and you would be very surprised when we stop trying to control so much and worrying all the time things still work out and even in a better way.
Do you think the former playmate and self proclaimed *******, did the right thing in order to protect her family??
