Lady Ga Ga has a great voice but so do a million other people. She has figured out how to dress fabulously on all occasions and not care who “likes ” it or not. Most of all she has a message of hope for her “monsters”. Believe in yourself. See who you are and be the best of that. My rendition is God doesn’t make defective products. She admits her weaknesses. She admits that she is insecure and neurotic just like her fans. She does grass and whiskey to feel high. She doesn’t know what you do. Only you can fill you. Only the power of your word, the chants of joy can fill this void we all feel that is the longing for the divine.
What inspires you? What makes you want to shout for Joy ? What makes you feel like dancing inside and out? What makes your cells dance?
I got to have an incredible week with my inspiration. This last week I got to spend with my daughter. She allowed me the privileged of being with her for her last Chemo. Something she was not looking forward to since her last one had such long lasting effects. I got there early in the day and Keith met me at the airport.We do what all vegans do first head for the health food store so we can stay healthy, wealthy and energetic. We got our things and then filled Pritham’s wish list. She wanted me to make my famous green soup and Keith to make his even more famous cornbread. He went with blue corn this time, Organic of course and it was stellar. He landed up making two batches while we were there. I had called my brother to meet with us for dinner but lost him in the flexibility realm. Translation: Pritham changed the time 3-4 times can’t remember. She had Chemo it ran overtime and her friend was driving her and they were talking and didn’t have the most direct trip home. Translated ….lost. then needed some exercise. So 7 turned into 8:30 pm dinner.
We got to have Dinner with Megan, (her friend from peace corps) Mercha,(her person in her life no other title) And Pritham. It was sweet but she was exhausted after her 8 hours of treatment yet her sweetness innocence and delight shown through. Next day we met at the new Treatment center so much better than the last chemo factory. She wanted to do prayers before starting so Keith did a Native American chant, I chanted to Guru Ram Das and did Ra Ma Da Sa Say So Hung, then she said a prayer. It was deep and lovely. She slept some and then we had a meeting with her doctor all the while hooked up to fluid drips. This doctor was so much better than the last one. God having to navigate school, her treatments both Alopathic, and alternative treatments plus finding new doctors Wahe Guru and She got A’s in her courses.Who is this being I am fortunate to know.
This Doctor was such a cutie. Came in in dream shoes about 4 ” heels tiny and very on Pritham’s case. She hugged her, she cared and she was competent. All things I had not seen in her last doctor. That nite after her treatment Pritham went for a nap and then a run with Megan and taught an OMM (Osteopathic Manual Manipulation) class. She was a great teacher and guide. At the end of the 2 hour session one person said to her. ” I hope your grandma is better.” I said to Pritham, “What was that about. (she has no living grandma).” She said I told them there was a family medical crisis and they just decided what it was themselves.” Interesting where we can go with suggestions. We then went out to dinner outside because she knew she was going to be house/bed bound for the next few days. Phoenix is not the mecca of good foods. I got the best because I ordered the salad but the dinner was outside and delightful.We got to be together.
I could go on and on but I will say she is my inspiration in so many ways. Our time together was sweeter than it has been since she was very small. It is very challenging seeing her go down. To see your child going through this treatment that takes you both into the underworld most interesting and like all epic journeys instructional and exhausting. I got to meditate allot, Chant, make green juice, clean bathtubs and do laundry, change beds and whatever else was needed. Mostly to just be in all states and phases.
Keith was the best. They have a wonderful connection and he is very tuned in about when to let her and me have some time alone. Keith and me had one very fun bunny siting walk around the campus. 16 bunnies total and wondrous plants of great desert beauty and the aromas of some of the trees was pure enchantment.
The journey is not over . She will know on July 25th how effective the chemo has been. Till then she with the blessing of her Oncologist she will be starting her alternative therapies between taking courses and studying for her Medical Exams. I will get to see her again in August. Wahe Guru She is giving us all a chance to meditate, chant, pray more. Are you taking advantage of that? The real question is what do we need to make us call on God in joy and delight instead of our give me list. Call on God’s name Wahe Guru. Play chant CD’s to remind you. Meditate get any of my programs to assist you. All DVD’s are now digitized with full transcripts. www.gurutej.net/store go for it is supports you and Pritham or go to www.Prtithamcare.com
