Another great blog

It’s not a secret at this point that I’m seriously into tumblr. If i was a rock, I’d be all smooth and shiny by now!

Not a great joke, I know, but you get the idea.

Anyway, the tumblr is this:

Being Hindu

It’s maintained by another Western Hindu, who started following Sanatana Dharma ~3 years ago (from what I can tell). It’s full of great links and easy resources for the curious.

For me, it’s a great thing to follow and offers much to meditate on as Dusshera passes and Diwali draws closer.

I have also reached a sort of equilibrium, I think, where I’m comfortable moving along the path at the speed I’m going, enjoying the scenery, finding my way. I know that this is where I need to be. The particulars will sort themselves out as necessary, when the time is right. There’s no requirement for me to do anything immediately, and if I’m truthful with myself, I know that pushing myself into things isn’t the answer. Like doing things with other people, for example. I know that every time I’ve tried that, I’ve worked myself into an anxious mess, and don’t remember anything else except for being stressed. Seems kind of counterproductive, if you ask me. Many things have become comfortable, so I will wait until even the scary things get to that point (because they will) and know that when the time is right, I can interact and come away from the experience enriched by it instead of stressed out.

I am going to my first Diwali mela next weekend, though. I am very excited about that!

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
