Although, I kind of looked at it as more of a time to figure everything out (and less about a label) since I was only agnostic for about a year. It was more of a stopping point for me than a philosophical stance.

> Is there still a spiritual side (for want of a better term) in being an atheist yogini? My last girlfriend was an atheist and avid yoga practitioner, but we never discussed that and I never thought to bring it up. Consider

I definitely find spirituality in my yoga practice, but not in the woo sense. I use it as a time to connect with myself and I have incorporated many yogic principles into my life.

Sure: Light on Yoga, Light on Pranayama, Light on Life--all three books by B.K.S. Iyengar. The Yoga Sutras: An Essential Guide to the Heart of Yoga Philosophy by Nicolai Bachman.

Celebrities are awash in candids and I draw my Gwynnies... celebrity obsession already exists, so my actual insanity is obscured. Laugh out load

Bullshit, you're one of the most straight up level headed guys on here, sharp too.

Well now, SeaJay ... are you ...

SeaJay ... ? SeaJay ...? ...

Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me
Is there anyone at home?…
Come on now
I hear you're feeling down
Well I can ease your pain
Get you on your feet again

Relax
I'll need some information first
Just the basic facts
Can you show me where it hurts?

There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying

When I was a child I had a fever
My hands felt just like two balloons
Now I've got that feeling once again
I can't explain you would not understand
This is not how I am
I have become comfortably numb

Okay
Just a little pinprick
There'll be no more, ah
But you may feel a little sick

Can you stand up?
I do believe it's working, good
That'll keep you going through the show
Come on it's time to go

There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship, smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying

When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye

I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown

The dream is gone
I have become comfortably numb


Is it you ... SeaJay ... ?
