Welcome to Tapas Lifestyle. My name is Linda.
The concept of Tapas Lifestyle came through brainstorming as to “how can I coin a term which concisely describes the concept of what I am all about and how I live”.
My interests in life are endless, which reminds me of the endless array of tapas selections.
The more common idea of tapas is eating little amounts of food presented to be able to taste many different selections rather than just one main dish. I am also very excited to find out that not only does tapas have a physical definition, as explained above, but it also has a spiritual meaning.
“In the yogic tradition, tapasyā may be translated as “essential energy”, referring to a focused effort leading towards bodily purification and spiritual enlightenment. Through tapas, a yogi or spiritual seeker can “burn off” or prevent accumulation of negative energies, clearing a path toward spiritual evolution”. – Wikipedia – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tapas_%28Sanskrit%29
I am always aware of how my life is affected by people/things/events, which I tend to categorize into four main “AL” distinctions, physicAL, emotionAL/mentAL, spirituAL and financiAL. These categories are not always mutually exclusive; for the most part they typically blend into each other. I am constantly seeking/learning new ways on how to continually enjoy and enhance my life and the ones who are a part of my life.
Tapas Lifestyle is my “gateway” to not only meditate and contemplate on the past but to enjoy the present and discover and create the many wonders of what my future holds.
Here’s to inspiring others as well as being inspired!
