    Thanks Braja, Kofi is my teacher and I could sit at his feet for a hundred years and never know as much as he does. He's a fellow who really gets it and I am so thankful to share something of him here.

    yeah! and he has an accent I can understand. Nice insight! thanks Candice.

  9. camellayoga says:

    ps….I am still with Patanjali, Its about forgetfulness of our true nature. The failure to know that initiates 'asmita' or ego.

  10. Candice Garrett says:

    ha! you're adorable, I love your accent too!
