the flue is supposed to be percieived...

“All that can be perceived has but one purpose – to be perceived.” (Desikachar translation)
Love this!!! Couldn’t be clearer and more exact. So relating to this, I’ve got the swine-flue and it’s here to be perceived, and I perceive it more than I like :-) But this sutra sets me free; I don’t have to like it, that’s not what it’s about. The sutra offers me a position of complete neutrality.
Iyengar confirms my instant feeling of freedom, by using words like “free”, “emancipation”. And life shows me the places where I can get more free in these days, offers me even more space and breath to expand, even though I tend to be worried about the change, instead of enjoying the new freedom. Let’s just go for it and see what happens – and so what if I’m sick, it’s just raining anyway :-) To be honest I’m bored by being inside for several days, and my fever has went down, so I do the “tiger in cage” walk, but if I try to do something more demanding than that, I get all exhausted – I amuse myself. Amusing head, I’m actually really good (entertaining) company :-)
Love Jenni
