Guiding Light of The Month

Like a flame that burns in silence, like a perfume that rises straight upward without wavering, my love goes to Thee; and like the child who does not reason and has no care, I trust myself to Thee that Thy Will may be done, that Thy Light may manifest, Thy Peace radiate, Thy Love cover the world. - The Mother

Bedok Reservoir - Walk and Talk

Friends: what a beautiful day it was !!! 7th December 2014 was our 135th walk for the society and I joined my dad and grandad along with other uncle and aunties from the society to walk all across the new and happening Bedok Reservoir.

To start with, we did a little warm up guided by Saurab uncle and he invited me to share some warm up that I have learnt in my school. Once we finished the warm up with a little prayer of OM chanting, we started walking the beautiful park along the sides of the reservoir. Some walked very fast and some went in small talking groups too.

We saw nature at its best green after a good shower the day before but we were lucky with a good morning sunlight and cool breeze.  With clear markings, it was easy to track how much we walked and as we walked 3/4th of the stretch, there was also a Red Bull sponsored event with  speed boats which had one part of the park totally occupied and vibrant.

We had few more joining the walk half-way and we all finished not so tired but little hungry though and took some group snaps before heading back home for prayer, special day wishes and some yummy food that mama had prepared.

Lots of fun on the whole and wish to do lot more of these walks as we get to see new places and a simple walk is a great exercise for the body and the mind.
