How to join the spokes together in a wheel…

We join spokes together in a wheel, but it is the center hole tthat makes the wagon move.

We shape clay into a pot, but it is the emptiness inside that holds whatever we want.

We hammer wood for a house, but it is the inner space that makes it livable. We work with being, but not being is what we use.

Namaste 🙏🏻

The Supreme Art of War is to Subdue the Enemy without Fighting…

“Plan for what is difficult while it is easy, do what is great while it is small.”

Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory.

Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity.

Sun Tzu

Train your mind to be calm in every situation.

Yoga is not about getting into a pose perfectly, is about a safe balance between breath synchronization and movement.

Yoga is about connecting with yourself.

Yoga is about self discipline, it begins with the mastery of your thoughts.

If you don’t control what you think, you can’t control what you do.

Optimum health requires the physical, energetic, emotional, intellectual bodies to be in balance with the spirit.

Last but not least;

Just Breathe!

Follow your soul it knows the way…

The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire. -Ferdinand Foch

Don’t give up on that higher version you are becoming. Talk to your best friend within, the most loyal to yourself.

Remind her or him;

” Be brave, my heart, have courage my soul.”

When you do things with your soul, you feel a river flowing in you.

Let your soul smile through your heart and your heart smile through your eyes, that you may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts.

Encompass the earth with that light that brightens from the chamber of your heart and soul.

Walk by the trail of surviving because the fire inside you burns brighter than the fire around you.

Learn to fly with a broken wing.

With great pain comes great change. If you are not ready for change then you are not in enough pain.

Last but not least;

“Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, but learning to dance in the rain.”

Namaste 🙏🏻

The Chamber of Your Heart.

“Our days are happier when we give people a bit of our heart rater than a piece of our mind.”

“It is impossible,”

said pride.

“It is risky, “

said experience.

“It is pointless,”

said reason.

“Give it a try,”

whispered the heart.

Always remember that your heart knows things that your mind can’t explain.

“When you hold grudges your hands are not free to catch blessings.”

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.

Last but not least;

” The most important decision that you will ever make is to be on a good mood” – Voltaire

With light and love 💗

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.

• 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.

• 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.
