Rest in the pause between breaths.
Pause in the rest between thoughts.

Bask in the space between words.
Stop in the stillness between time.

The art of giving

We all know that giving on any level feels really nice, maybe fantastic, but internally all forms of giving are not equal. When we give with the expectation of receiving something in return, we are not really letting go of what we are giving.
If we don`t let go completely, then we are still clinging to whatever we gave.
And the magic will not happen.

In our culture there is a lot of “me first” programed into our systems.
That blocks us to give fully, openly and let the magic happen.

When we give freely without expectation, it can come back to us in some very unexcpected ways. Note to self,  if we are giving simply to get something back, then we also put limits on the ways that we can receive.
This can be quite difficult to practice, especially if we are having a hard time meeting our own needs.
It takes time to practice, again and again.

Learning to expand our hearts and give freely.
Embracing unselfish giving.

Learning that giving from the heart is truly a gift.

Giving is its own reward.

Celebrate Light

It`s midsummertime.
The days of Summer Solstice
We are celebrating the sun.
The light.
Take time to nurture your heart.

Or do 108 Sun Salutations.

Plant your love seeds. Happy seeds.
Let them grow even more love and compassion in your life.

Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it

~Eckhart Tolle

Somewhere right now, somebody out there feels just like you do.

We’re all striving, struggling, learning and growing, and sometimes it can feel like we should be somewhere else. Maybe where things are crystal clear and easy like a smooth wind.

But what about right now?.
Here in the middle. In this present moment.
In the eye of the storm, in the chaotic and messy place,
Where uncertainty and confusion is alive, this is where we all live.

Somewhere right now, someone makes a choice that it’s  perfectly okay to be right where they are.
Inhale deeply, look around, and let that person be you.

Love yourself—accept yourself—forgive yourself—and be good to yourself, because without you the rest of us are without a source of many wonderful things

 Leo F. Buscaglia

Forgiveness heals. It makes us more humble. More positive. It enhances our ability to help others and our ability to help ourselves.

It makes us one. Instead of separate.
Unique but not separate.

We know that no one can love us if we don’t love ourselves.
We know we shouldn’t blame ourselves for things other people have done.
We know we need to accept ourselves or else we’ll never be happy.
But even if we do know all these things we tend to forget.
We do know intellectually.
And we forget how it is to know it from the inside.
Feeling it. Own it -  from deep within.
We need a reminder. A breath. A pause. A reflection.
And accept that this is how it is. And we are good enough.
I forgive myself for not knowing.

Forgiving isn’t easy.
If we want to heal, we must learn to forgive.
Forgive others without grudges and most importantly, forgive ourselves.
We are not alone.
We’re all human.
And we are on this journey together.

Close your eyes. Take a deep breath.
And say to yourself:

“It’s not my fault”

Repeat and make that a manifest in your heart.

being humble

Humility is not something that comes naturally to most of us.
We live in an extremly competitive society. 
Humility is a reminder that we have so much more to learn.
A signal to others that we are ready to recieve their wisdom. Their knowledge.
A reminder to listen. To learn.
Appreciate. Give thanks to.
A humble person is someone who doesen`t need to brag or trying to impress themselves.

Yoga makes me humble. To be sweet to myself makes me humble.
When I meet my closest like it was the first -
e v e r y s i n g l e t i m e -  makes me humble.
To recive others knowledge and wisdom.
To be interested and not interesting.
To allow what is.
To rock my inner world.
To love.

with humility and wonder
