Quote of the Week

“Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, some day far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”

Rainer Maria Rilke

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

“This now is it. This. Your deepest need and desire is satisfied by the moment’s energy here in your hand” Rumi

How wonderful we have a national day devoted to giving gratitude! We have a wonderful opportunity to go deep inside for just that purpose. Many people consider Thanksgiving to be their favorite holiday as it is not dependent upon any outward display, shopping, gifts, money or imagery but an inward connection to Spirit and coming together in celebration! We celebrate by offering gratitude for our most basic gift of sustanence which supports life, food. We prepare it and share it and enjoy it. We have the opportunity to know what is truly important and realize all the rest is only surface. We have what is truly important and we can share the abundance with those who have less.

This time of change we are going through is offering us the time to go within and see what is truly essential and what we have been seeking outside ourselves to make us happy. It never shows up in the form of “enough” when we seek outside ourselves. The void is always still present and we wonder why. The void is always filled by connecting up and giving gratitude as a way of coming back into Truth. We are safe and we are loved and this under everything else seems to be our biggest fear. This day presents a practice of realizing truth and living in that space rather than the density of fear. We can then practice this every day beginning with gratitude rather than once a year. This practice changes life immediately and deeply.

Choose this day to go inside and see what is truly there for you on this sacred journey. All the people who have come into your life offering the gift of you getting to know yourself better by offering up that mirror image. All the love that has been offered to you, all the opportunity to choose each and every day. We have all been given the greatest gift of Free Will to choose.
Exercise that gift now with choosing gratitude for all that is. Choose gratitude whether you are with others or having a sacred moment to go inside and be with yourself. Choose love whether alone or with others because you can because it feels better than choosing otherwise and you are worthy of the goodness you can feel when you choose higher! This is the gift we give ourself and yet others receive this gift when we shine that energy outward choosing love.

Come breath and connect up choosing health, life and love!

Classes are every Monday and Friday evenings at 6:30!

“Compassionate towards yourself, you reconcile all beings in the world” Lao Tzu

One subject that has come up tremendously lately is the “inner judge”. How often do we put on our heavy black robes and sit up high and reach for the heavy gavel to slap down our judgments upon others? How often does that same inner judge take that action against us?? Whatever is inside us will reflect back outwards to those around us. It cannot be otherwise. This is the moment to understand just how damaging that inner judge can be. How that judge hurts you every day finding you lacking and then finding others lacking, not ok, not worthy, undeserving perhaps even unlovable.

The pain that is created by that inner judge is the pain of separation. Suddenly we feel apart from the love if we judge ourselves. We feel apart from others if we judge them. And then there is the greatest pain, separation from the One. This pain has been experienced by every being at some time or another. It is almost like a death. The pain goes deep and sometimes you find people who have lived a lifetime in this pain. They are closed off, bitter, cold and there are only negative words coming from their lips. The only choice is to fire the inner judge and to choose compassion. When we make this choice we are free, we are in the Unity and we are lifted in that loving choice.

When we retire the judge, come down from our lofty seat up high we are one with everyone. There is no more illusion of being alone. The pain is gone and we are free. This is the time to take off the heavy black robe, set down the gavel and choose the Oneness. The first step is just to notice the judge when he/she pops up and start putting them on notice. They are no longer in charge. You are now directing and choosing from a higher place of connectedness = love, compassion and forgiveness.

One of the most rapid ways of firing the judge and taking back power is to breathe! Once we are in the freed state of breathing fully there is no judgment there is only the soul state of expanded loving consciousness, awake and aware. There is only the journey of the soul to remember again who it is and where it came from. The greatest gift of all is that of free will! We get to exercise this gift every day. We get to choose how we will show up, judging others, criticizing or loving and seeing the beauty joining in the One.

Come breathe and connect to your soul and be free!

Class this Friday will be from 4-6 and normal hours will resume next week for Monday and Friday classes for group at 6:30!
