Aeroboga -The sacred vessel of a relationship

When we exercise we use our physical muscles. In a relationship we have an opportunity to use our emotions muscles; the muscle of letting go, opening up and accepting. As we use these emotional muscles more and more each day we enhance our ability to exercise these traits in every aspect of our life. To make a sacred vessel of our relationships we must first make clear our intentions. Openness is required – this means we should be open to other people and to new opportunities. Trust is also necessary – trust in ourselves, others and our ability to self realize. We also need energy to keep us focused and committed to maintaining and nurturing our relationships. And finally we must be willing to connect the ability to give and receive with the ability to love. These physical and emotional exercises create a strong vessel from which we find the strength to transform our love into unconditional compassion and understanding.

Building the sacred vessel of a relationship

In the ideal we fill all our relationships with sacred love but the truth is we are all quite self centered. We spend a great deal of time trying to control one another so that we can get what we want. But rather than judging ourselves, it is wiser to first try and admit within our self this human tendency to want to control others. Then let us set about the work of transforming this controlling ego of ours into an observant being that releases itself from the need to control and hang onto attachments by surrendering to the purity of authentic, unconditional love. This can only be done when we open, energize and connect the ability to give and receive with the ability to reach out with authentic love.

True love is like friendship at its best – a love that does not need control or understanding – it simply exist.

Yoga Moment

– He who knows a drop of water knows all water, wherever and whenever it is found. Understand the truth within yourself and you will understand the truth of the universe. Be willing to venture inside and discover the true nature of life which is embedded within each and every one of us. It is simply a matter of observing the nature of truth without judgment. Not an easy task. A good yoga practice can help.

Aero*boga 11 dancing on the razors edge

The razors edge is the sharp point of the present moment. It means to embrace in the moment all we are as humans. After a fight with my partner, my child, my coworker, my parent, sibling or friend, part of me wants to nurse my anger and part of me wants to drop it and express my love. Slipping into uncertainty we must come back to the present moment. Being angry while loving someone is painful. Yet at these moments we have the opportunity to experience what it is like to be human – we have these emotions; we do not need to deny them nor do we need to feed them – we only need to slip back into the present moment without settling into any position and let the moment unfold – here on the razor’s edge we can feel the pain without settling into a hard and fixed position – here we understand what it means to be human – we all share the same emotions and the same fears. When this happens the heart opens and with a large flow of love we are able to once again give and receive free of attachment to any point of view.

A recipe for Health, sex, happiness and love

Moroccan Stew

A tagine is a North African stew and also the name of the pot which the stew is made. To make this dish you will need a tagine. You can buy one on line or at any good quality cooking store. Once you start using it, you will use it over and over again. Make sure you prepare it according to the directions – oil and slow cook. It is so easy to use and easy to clean.

To balance the sweetness of a fruit tagine start with a simple carrot salad

Shredded carrot salad

Whisk together about a tablespoon of Dijon mustard and about a  2 tablespoon of olive oil.

 In a  mixing bowl

2 cups of shredded carrots

1 cup of shredded cabbage

Toss in a handful of  dark currants or dark raisins

Toss in a handful of chopped parsley

Add dressing and toss – serve as starter salad or as a side dish.

This is my husband’s favorite tagine. It’s made with lamb, fruit and spices.

Lamb tagine with prunes, apricots and honey

1-2 tablespoons of olive oil

2 tablespoons of blanched almonds

1 large red onion finely chopped

2 cloves of garlic finely chopped

1 medium size carrot cut into bite size pieces

1 thumb size piece of fresh ginger peeled and chopped

A pinch of saffron threads

2 cinnamon sticks

11/2 teaspoons of coriander seed crushed

1 lb of lamb, form the shoulder, leg or shank, trimmed a dn cubed( I prefer the shank)

15 pitted prunes soaked for one hour and drained

 10 dried apricots soaked for one hour and drained

6 strips of un-waxed orange peel

2 tablespoons of dark honey

A little seas salt and ground black pepper

A handful of fresh cilantro leaves finely chopped

Heat the oil in a tangine (can use a heavy based casserole dish),stir in the almonds and cook until tender. Add onion and garlic and sauté until they begin to color. Stir in saffron, ginger, cinnamon sticks and coriander seeds. Toss in the lamb and carrot making sure they get coated with all the spices. Sauté of about 2 minutes

Pour in enough water to just cover the meat and bring it to a boil. Reduce heat, cover the tagine with the top and simmer for about 1 hour until the meat is tender. Add the prunes, apricots and orange peel, cover and simmer for about 15-20 minutes. Stir in the honey, season with salt and pepper, cover and simmer for another 10 minutes. Make sure there is enough liquid in the pot so that the sauce is syrupy and slightly caramelized but not dry.

Sprinkle in some cilantro leaves and leave the rest to sprinkle over the top of the dish. Serve immediately with a side of couscous or with crusty bread.

Serve with a good red French wine such as Bordeaux. Morocco has a big French influence us a French wine goes well with Moroccan food.

For dessert you might want to make it a light sorbet. Lemon and a French macaroon for sweetness. My favorite macaroons – outside Lauderee’ in Paris where I first had them back in 2001 is Paulette’s. You can go to the website and order them in a variety of - They are close to the originals born at Lauderee’.

Using yoga to realize a dream

To realize your dreams you must continually feed them. The energy you put into achieving your goals will materialize into reality. It is karma or the nature of life to work towards happiness. It is not something that just comes to you. You must feed it continually and once you attain it you must continue to feed it or it will dissolve. Consciously pay attention to the energy you feed into your life and observe what happens.

Aero*boga - the way of the heart

The Way of the Heart – the nature of relationship, devotion and love

When we speak of walking the middle way – Buddhism refers to it as the razor’s edge. The middle way is about not getting attached or fixed into any one position. If we fall into identification with any position; wanting more closeness or separateness; wanting our freedom or wanting commitment we risk hurting ourselves, because we give more energy to one part of ourselves at the expense of the other. The way of the heart is balanced, centered and present. In order to maintain balance in our lives we need to continually come back to the present moment which is sharp and thin as the razors edge.

When we open, energize and connect in the present moment we find balance and all our relationships take on a new meaning. For in the present moment our relationships have the potential to renew and begin fresh; open, energize and connect – don’t get stuck in any position hanging onto resentments of the past or fearing the uncertainty of the future - but stay present and all your relationships will find balance.

Let’s get started open, energize and connect

Stay present and sharp like razors edge – be careful not to get stuck in any position – resentments from the past or uncertainty about the future – live in the present moment where authentic love has a chance to flourish and grow.

A recipe for Health, Sex, Happiness and Love

This dinner contains foods that enhance your health, sex, happiness and Love!
Many foods bring back memories. Shrimp take me back to the small fishing village, where I grew up. In the winter the fishermen would catch fresh shrimp. Fresh and cold from the icy winter waters of Maine we would shell them, cook them and eat them not as a luxury but as an everyday staple.

Tonight’s dinner – Mango Shrimp

The meal begins with a simple salad made of love by a Pink lady apple. Arrange fresh endives on a chilled plate. Slice one Pink Lady apple into quarters. Slice the quarters into slivers and arrange on top of the endives. Cut into small chunks manchego – a Spanish cheese that works well with the apples. You can also use a Romano cheese. Any cheese will work but keep it on the mild side. Sprinkle the top with slivered almonds.

Mix the juice of one small orange into a small measuring cup. Add about 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Stir and then pour over the top of the salad just before serving.

Mango Shrimp

1 ripe mango peeled

2 tablespoons of lemon juice

1 pound of large shrimp peeled

1 tablespoon of chicken stock

1 teaspoon of chili powder

¼ teaspoon of hot sauce

1 ½ cups of fresh cut and crushed pineapple

1 cup of chopped tomatoes

1 small red onion chopped

Puree mango with lemon juice in blender. In nonstick frying pan combine shrimp with stock, chili pepper, and hot sauce, and cook, stirring about three minutes. Mix in pineapple, tomatoes, onions. Cook for about 1 minute. Spoon onto plate and drizzle mango sauce on top. Serves 4 at about 207 calories a serving – serve with cooked rice or couscous. For wine try a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Excellent white wine that goes well with seafood.

Wisdom teaches us...

Wisdom teaches us that as much as we know there is always more to learn. Each day presents us with new possibilities. We must remain open and flexible allowing for the room to grow and continue learning. The moment you stop being flexible and begin to think you know it all you become rigid and rigidity makes you appear old. Be flexible and open this week to all possibilities.

Non attachment in relationships- Aero*boga

This does not mean that we should have no attachments. It means that we should first respect our own needs so that we have more to give to others. In the best sense nonattachment means we are not fixed into any one position. We are walking the middle way where we realize that we all have our own needs and wants. We recognize our own needs but are also able to tap into a large state of being where we realize that compromise and openness to change brings balance. When two people become too identified with their positions they get polarized and the dance of love comes to a grinding halt. We must learn to be open to the point of view of others, energized with happiness and connected at the pulse of all relationships – the sacral and the heart.

Practice nonattachment – the ability to set aside your wants and needs, see the position of another and reach out with a sense of balance and understanding. The dance of relationship will be full of insight and joy.
