Ganesh and Hellen Hunt
The other day my sweet heart and I were watching the new movie soul surfer. This was partly motivated because a piece I worked on for Athleta was worn in the movie! Check out Hellen Hunt!
All that aside it had some great thoughts on how we define ourselves. So much of the time we lock ourselves in to what we think we should be instead of allowing ourselves to experience our full nature. We apply limits to ourselves before we have a chance to realize the fullness of our spirit. You are not you job, you are not your family, you are not your clothing, you are not where you live or how much money you make. Its not that they are not part of your experience but you are MORE. The main character looses her arm in a shark bite accident. She struggles with how to redefine what she is without being a pro surfer and she is able to grow beyond her love of surfing and see a new aspect of her self. This is a prefect example of Ganesh in our life. People think Ganesh is just there to take the obstacles away. To make your life easy and smooth. But this is a matter of perspective. Ganesh is also there to place obstacles in front of you. To challenge you to help you grow. It is your choice whether or not you grow, and if you can change your perspective. Lets practice inversions of the mind. lets change our perspective!
