Politics, Insanity, Happiness and Namaste to You!

I realized that it had been awhile since I've posted anything. Life does have a way of just moving along whether we give it our permission or not. I can't believe it is a mere weeks away until the election and of course I am not even entertaining the possibility that McSame & Palin(aka pales in comparison) will be in the White House come January 2009. One thing for sure though - January 20, 2009 - an end of an ERROR.
Insanity is running rampant in my home and I am honestly grateful for the opportunity to see how far I have come by seeing it in front of me. I am continuing to concentrate on changing me and being the best person that I can be today. Tomorrow evening I am starting a 9 week weekly class at the Spiritual Center titled 'Eight Steps for Spiritual Realization and Personal Empowerment' from the class description - The teachings offered in this course are drawn from the time tested ancient Vedic philosophy of Self- and God-realization. The practices are appropriate for people of all religious backgrounds who want to explore spiritual truth and discover for themselves a way of spiritually conscious living.
I am really looking forward to the series. The next step is to start Yoga classes at the Center next Monday. I recently came across this video

and it matches my newfound beliefs so closely and those of the Center that I want to share it with you. The words go kind of fast so you may want to watch it a few times. It is beautiful.

On another note -recently I received a notice from Alameda County for an available job opening that at some point I had put in an interest card. It is the same position that I had gotten down South and had to quit due to our move. Eligibility Specialist aka 'Welfare Lady'. I was so excited because Dave and I had recently decided on purchasing our home in Fremont or Newark in Alameda County. Currently we live in Santa Clara County. So of course I applied ASAP. I have done this drill before having had and quit two County jobs before I know that it is a long process but that's quite alright as I have time. In the meantime I will continue with indwelling in my Spiritual journey and working on my 50 yr old body so I'll be fit and ready to go to work. Yay! I need to work - I need to use my brain and mix with adults. If not that job then another one.

I have a trip planned next month for So Cal. I'm going to stay with a friend and play bunco with the old gang. I'm super excited about that. My 3 year wedding anniversary is in November and as of now we don't have concrete plans - only that Dave is taking a few days off. We'll go somewhere just not sure where. I've never been Hot Air Ballooning so I'm thinking maybe beautiful Napa Valley. I'll keep you posted.
I guess I've caught up now. Hope everyone has a wonderful Fall. Namaste my friends.
