Recently I have been wanting to move deeper into the philosophy of yoga and the meditation practice. Last weekend I went to the Yoga Journal Conference in Hollywood, Florida and took a one-day teacher intensive with Aadil Palkhivala. It was definitely a case of the teacher coming when the student was ready - his message and approach were just what I was looking for.

The keynote speaker at the conference was Marianne Williamson. Another case of the teacher arriving on schedule - she is brilliant and speaks so eloquently and compassionately about what is going on in the U.S. today. I bought her most recent book, The Law of Divine Compensation and had her sign it. She is a very special person - she took the time to speak with every person in line and to let them have a picture taken with her. Here's mine:

Anyway, I was just thinking how cool it was that I was looking for new teachers to take me in new directions and they showed up right on time. Does this ever happen to you?
