Some Swamis are Fat" is a not-so-serious look at what is sacred. Ava Greene, a yoga instructor, bares her soul in a quest that's both light-hearted and agonizing. "Enlightenment," "truth..".what and where are they? And why always just out of reach? Greene's late-night rants and quirky sidetracking lead us easily along, wanting more of her courage and insight. Yet it's when she admits to getting nowhere that a naked stillness sets in...and her efforts begin to bear fruit. She experiences how surrender (from our own designs) is actually the more direct path; where trying too hard often leads to more of the same. You'll both lose and find yourself in the fresh, energetic writing. Hinting at a wealth of life experience, Greene's gutsy traction keeps bringing us back to the present moment, that elusive experience that matters most. "Some Swamis are Fat" will put you at ease with your own inner voice. - excerpt - "Enlightenment is just a tool. What you do with it, how you use it to make peace, how you serve the universe, that's the next step. Some people don't have to belabor this stuff. Like slugging the ball over the fence, their lives are those kind of homers from the start. Greek fishermen, rice growers in Indonesia, those who never miss a beat, rise with the sun, and do their day's work cyclically as nature. They go innocently around the calendar, decade after decade, marrying, parenting, aging then dying. They hit the ball out of the ballpark first time at bat. They walk the bases. They're neither jaded nor part of the problem. Somewhere they chose or didn't choose not to have too many choices. Others of us play nine long evolutionary innings, and into overtime. Singles, doubles, a lot of fouling out.
