It's strange how much of the threads of my yogic practice/research tend to come together at the same points. First it was the Nath lineage, especially evident in the works of Gurudev Mahendranath, and Dattatreya. Then it was the Nyingma and Kagyu schools of Tibetian Buddhism, which narrowed to Shambhala and the lineage of Rechungpa, and the Sharmapa.
It feels like I am slowly weaving a rope out of separate strands held by the same hand. These same elements keep coming up over and over again. References to Bhairava, Shambhala, and Vajrayogini. It's like walking into a place you've never been and smelling someone you know you know but cant place.. and they just left like fifteen minutes ago.
We'll see where it takes us.
