Draw your awareness to your breath and allow yourself to let go…

God is a comedian playing to an audience afraid to laugh… -Voltaire

Light is easy to love… It is from darkness where resilience is born.

Is there a really dark night for the soul?

Before Alice go to Wonderland, she had to fall.

Today you have 100% of your life left.

Adversity does not build character, it reveals it.

Bring your awareness to resilience and say goodbye to any dark night of the soul.

Allow yourself to let your light shine.

How To Set Yourself Up For The Long Haul…

It is so easy to leave our decisions to others and as such, the blame for self inflicted circumstances when unplanned events occur.

To crumble into a pile of rubble, fade and sob.

I hear common things frequently such as:

“I lost my father.”

” My family moved away.”

” My best friend has been stricken by illness.”

” I broke my leg and have been temporarily home bound (unfit for duty).”

We all have had or are currently dealing with some type of situation that make us look around in order to find hope in every new breath.

How do we take massive corrective action?

Nothing major…

Take baby steps, they work just fine.

It is the momentum of forward consistent progress what you should be aiming for.

β€’ Set yourself for the long haul, with deep roots.

As there will be tempests along the way; be ready and willing to be receptive. Discomfort might be undergoing, (which is understandable), but do not allow it to overcome your foundation or roots.

β€’ Embracing yoga and mindful meditation are examples of effective supportive tools from which you can plan ahead with.

I remember this movie of a boy… Every Sunday went to church with his mother, while his father went fishing.

One Sunday the boy said ” Dad, I want to go to your church.”

The boy went with his father fishing. They spooled the rod, stood all day in the lake.

Didn’t speak…

Didn’t catch anything…

And the boy said that he had never felt closer to his father.

Sometimes the only ten minutes you can set away for yourself can be when walking your dog, cooking (before the kids come home) and even a midnight jog.

Desist of turning on the TV at home in the morning or your car radio on the way to work. We create resilience at our own pace and in a way that will work for us.

Along your journey to achieve inner peace we sometimes forget the individuality of our persona.

If you want to make a change happen so to speak, it can happen; yet only by the power of our hand.

How To Defeat The Limiting Self.


Dare to take my hand and become set alight with the holy fire, my cherished one.

Step forward with me let us burn together, dissembled into a light that will never be extinguished.

Because this is the light that burns with so much incandescent truth that not falsehood can withstand its audacious vibrancy.

Open your heart to this strongest force of light and together we shall burn into the divine will of undefeated truth.

Everything happens for a reason.

Life test are meant to become our greatest teachers.

The star of our being, lights up from within.

It is the light that never goes out.

It is a strength so powerful that exceeds beyond any duality of light and darkness.

It is a star that cannot ever be diminished and quite simply beyond all logic just it is.

No hate, spell, lie, or deception can remain intact on its presence.

Choose today to be that light, in order to let go of any falsehood you have believed about yourself and you will be able to reconnect with that inner star of your being.

Last but not least:

You will be freer…

How to hear during silence.

What was meditation and Buddhist guru Ram Dass really implying?

The general goal of mindfulness and self-discovery is to quiet the endless parade of thoughts that march through our minds almost incessantly.

Self-discovery is extremely important when there is lack of grounding due to several events that during our lives, we have to face and react unexpectedly.

Also self-discovery provides support to develop resilience skills in order to deal with emotional trauma (when applicable) sometimes caused during childhood. Unfortunately remains in the subconscious until another trauma or stressful routine triggers the mind and hence its resistance to deal with it.

Most of our errant thoughts are rooted in the past and future – thoughts of fear, fantasy, frustration, envy and regret.

Rarely are we completely rooted in the present moment. So when we learn how to control a phantom mind, through at least 15 minutes daily doing meditation, there will be multiple benefits that extend from the crown of our head all the way to our feet.

We connect with our breath and learn how to use it as a resource to pace the mind.*

People have gotten used to constantly talking, listening to television or music, or making noise in other ways. Creating noise just for the sake of noise will never let us understand the beauty of silence or appreciate the world around us.

Take 2 minutes and do nothing but listen, without talking or having any background noise, and you may be amazed at what you hear.

The sound of birds singing, insects buzzing, and all of the other noises that are going on are often overlooked because they are not clearly heard.

If you go into nature and you are silent you will find that nature can be quite noisy in a natural and appealing way.

The importance of silence is also a factor in relationships, because if you are always talking then you are not hearing what your partner is saying.

It is better to be silent and practice situational awareness, only speaking when this is necessary, so that you can truly hear what others are trying to tell you. Instead of standing in front of the person talking to us and have the mind wondering…

How to transform noise into music πŸŽΆ

There is nothing more painful than losing yourself.

There is nothing more beautiful than finding yourself again.

When you lose yourself you lose your grounding.

When you find yourself again you will rebirth.

Put your heart, mind and soul into your even smallest act, open that door to yourself it will facilitate the inner journey.

Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.

The soul that sees beauty, may sometimes walk alone.

Character cannot be developed in ease and quite.

Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.

May all that has been reduced to noise in you, become music again.
