Operating as usual

Hello Friends,

I’ll be enjoying a social media break for some days...

Here’s to the journey of un-becoming...

Slow, long, deep breath in...
Slow, long, deep breath out...
Repeat...

"The past has no power to stop you
from being present now.

Only your grievance about the past can do that.

What is grievance?

The baggage of old thought and emotion..."

~ Lao Tzu

We are
powerful beyond
comprehension...

Wield your
power with
kindness
and your impact
will be
staggering.

~ terri st. cloud

A Friday evening funny...

Anchor the eternity of love in your own soul and embed this planet with its goodness.

~ John Lewis

R.I.P. John Lewis. What a ripple effect you've had on the world - it will continue...

"Anchor the eternity of love in your own soul... Lean toward the whispers of your own heart... Release the need to hate, to harbor division, and the enticement of revenge... But when it is your time, don't be afraid to stand up, speak up, and speak out against injustice."

The purpose of any dream
is to exercise the heart
until it awakens.

~ Mark Nepo

Bless to me, O God, everything my eye shall see.
Bless to me, O God, everything my hand shall do.
Bless to me, O God, everything my brain shall think.
Bless to me, O God, the place and the equipment.
Bless to me, O God, the people we serve through our work.
Be in the interruptions and the setbacks.
Be in the eye of the person who is difficult.
Be in the eye of the person who is a delight.

~ Celtic Blessing

Today I know that I cannot control the ocean tides. I can only go with the flow. When I struggle and try to organize the Atlantic to my specifications, I sink. If I fail and thrash and growl and grumble, I go under. But if I let go and float, I am borne aloft.

~ Marie Stilkind

If you let go a little, you will have a little happiness.
If you let go a lot, you will have a lot of happiness.
If you let go completely, you will be free.

~ Achan Cha

A human being is a part of a whole, called by us the universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

~ Albert Einstein

For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.

~ Nelson Mandela

As human beings we all want to be happy and free from misery.
We have learned that the key to happiness is inner peace.
The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions such as
anger and attachment, fear and suspicion,
while love and compassion, a sense of universal responsibility
are the sources of peace and happiness.

~ Dalai Lama

The life I touch for good or ill will touch another life, and that in turn another, until who knows where the trembling stops or in what far place my touch will be felt.

~ Frederick Buechner

Listen...

Love yourself enough to walk
into only the rooms and situations
that show care and love for you.

Love yourself enough to walk out of
the rooms that harm you in any way.

Love yourself enough to hold the
people who harm you accountable
for their words and actions.

Love yourself enough to express
your wants, your needs, and your desires.

Love yourself enough to tell the truth.

Love yourself enough to keep yourself safe.

Love yourself enough to say enough is enough when enough has become enough.

~ Cleo Wade

Yoga Therapy and Meditation with Kathy Julien

Our notions about happiness entrap us. We forget that they are just ideas. Our idea of happiness can prevent us from actually being happy. We fail to see the opportunity for joy that is right in front of us when we are caught in a belief that happiness should take a particular form.

~ Thich Nhat Hanh

You can reweave the story.
You can write a new chapter.
You can unpick patterns and stick in new habits.
You can grow a new tongue and taste a better language.
You can save yourself, awaken yourself and ignite your dreams; turning them into plans.
You are responsible for your future, and you can change it; one decision at a time, one choice at a time, one step at a time, one word at a time.

~ Brigit Anna McNeil

We could all learn from the Flatfish.
They spend their days
scavenging in the mud
but their eyes
never leave Heaven.
They're ready for anything.

~ Lake Sagaris, Canadian Journalist, Poet and Translator
