“Every day to some degree it feels like the job is being done for me. And on the better days it really feels like the job is being done for me.”
“On the not so good days it feels like ……either you can say I need to put in more effort. But that real effort is like praying more for the receptivity to have faith that the job is being done for me.”
“In one sense physically this is a small world. We are going around and around a small block in Jamaica Queens. In one sense its small because you don’t have to worry about all the worldly things you normally have to think about or focusing on. Your main focus is just to keep going forward.”
“That is small in one way, but at the same time it is completely representative of life on earth. The circular nature of the race is like the whole universe. The planets go around the sun.”
“Everything about this race is representative of our own life, and of the whole world, and the reality that we all face every day. The challenges and obstacles as well as the opportunities for us to make progress. To become more spiritual. To have more faith in the cosmic flow, in God, and the divinity within ourselves, and to connect more with each other.”
“To really feel the universe inside us and to really feel how we can help each other.”
“I am just one of the people running, but there are so many people making this happen. There could be hundreds if not thousands of people making this happen in so many different ways. I am just a small part of it.”

Thanks to Harita for a priceless interview, with profound insights into the run and its parallel in understanding our lives.
Tomorrow is Canadian Thanksgiving Day — there is talk of re-naming it GRATITUDE DAY in Canada– to give the day a more all-inclusive meaning and vibration—would that not be great!!
Amazing interview(s), amazing video, photos, reports, amazing runners, helpers, organisers – sending all the runners our best wishes from Pujaloy Mahasamadhi meditations.
