It's hard to imagine anything farther from an angel pouring fluid from one cup into another while standing with one foot on land and the other in water. Instead, a couple sit together at a table, the woman pouring some wine into the man's glass. On the table before them, as well as the wine, are a bowl of salad, a dish of olives and a small bowl of some kind of sauce, and two plates of cake to finish it all off.
At first glance, this looks nothing like what we might expect of Temperance. And yet, a salad, some cake and a little wine actually sounds like the perfect balance of ingredients for a lovely, romantic dinner. Temperance isn't about absolute abstinence, but rather about finding a healthy equilibrium. And in life, that definitely includes simple pleasures like enjoying good food with someone you love.
As for me, I guess the right mix today will include some time napping, a bit of exercise, chanting with Deva Premal and Miten, and then family time with Big Boy, my Dear One and his mum.
I am grateful for a Sunday with my loved ones.
