'Freedays' are the 'gather our thoughts' days; Q&As; a general review of the week so far…
With all the focus on 'we are not the body' in Vedanta, it can come as an inconvenience and frustration when that very body decides to demand attention! The body is the vehicle in which the soul travels in order to encounter the required experiences to further its path. Along with that can come the challenges which are inherent to the matter. Some are born with bodies which never ail nor flail. Others with such disabilities it can seem an impossibility to live life at all - yet it is, and sometimes to fantastic effect (again the classic and current example of Prof Stephen Hawking).
All of us, at one time or other, must deal with (relatively) minor illness and infirmities. One of the challenges then is how to move along with it… or to surrender gracefully and acknowledge the need for 'time out'.
This week has been the latter here at AV-bloggy. It is hoped that you still found the suggestions for saadhana worth the visiting; and normal service will now return! Thank you for the forbearance - and thanks to those who took time to extend good wishes; not necessary but appreciated.
