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 Season Quietly Turning Inward

January 29, 2009

Happy Season of Quietly Turning Inward,

“And the world that is looked at so deeply wants to flourish in love” Rilke

I believe that each one of us truly wants to experience and live in love, yet why do we often push it away when it is there in our lives? Why do we not offer it to ourselves in even the most quiet moments when no one is looking? Why do we deny ourselves that very succor we need to survive? We came here knowing; we loved unconditionally, we forgave instantly, we lived in the moment and we knew we were perfect; we were the Masters! How did we forget? This is perhaps the most amazing part of this journey! We agreed to forget only to remember again that the only thing that truly exists is love and that we are the love we seek.

When we enter into relationships and we are dashed upon the rocks of despair; somehow the illusion looms strongly we are not safe and we certainly do not feel loved. Sometimes we feel abandoned as the other person is not willing to remain in the circle; there is such a feeling of loss that it can threaten to overcome our very soul. At times we feel this way while we are in relationship in that we don’t feel safe, we don’t feel loved and our very being feels threatened. We begin to build barricades to secure our safety, walls to protect our hearts. It is no longer safe to let another get too close as we might be hurt.

The agreement to forget; why did we make this contract? This is the biggest challenge our beings can face and we have all chosen this experience. Our consciousness is being altered by every experience, by every relationship we enter into with another being. They are holding up the mirror so we can see ourselves. All that we are holding onto the fear, doubt and illusion is reflected back to us. Long ago we agreed to give up the knowledge we had of ourselves to replace it with what others believed of us.

We lovingly offered ourselves up to this experience. We became programmed we developed buttons of sensitivity that we would later experience in intimate relationship as adults so we could re-explore ourselves and know if we choose to continue to hold these sensitized buttons or to re-program our beings and re-member again who we truly are and remember to love again. The challenge is not bigger than we are! It is possible to love truly, deeply and madly and it begins with the Soul Self.

An amazing journey indeed! The best illusion ever created to allow us to engage completely and fully. More emotions could not be explored than on this plane. We have chosen well for ourselves though never to be considered easy. It is simple but it is not easy. It is always choice. Remembering to love ourselves then allows us to love others. Choosing to see value and meaning allows us our gratitude which gives way to joy, peace and health.

The greatest gift we were given was our own free will to choose every moment of every day. We get to choose our thoughts, our actions, our words. We are free! Choose well for yourself remembering you are deserving, it is your birthright to be healthy, joyful, loving and abundant. All it takes is your willingness to surrender and let go! As you remember the love you radiate the Light and you illuminate this plane. It ripples out to everyone you come into contact with.

Breath is the most powerful tool to break through illusion, to see Truth, to remember and be free!
Come Breathe!

“I live my life in widening rings which spread over earth and sky” Rilke

Rainer Maria Rilke

The answers, the having, the knowing, we want it all now! We want it so badly now we try to skip over the journey which is actually responsible for getting us there in the end. Where did we lose the ability to ruminate, to contemplate and to sit still and witness what is? When did life start unfolding so rapidly that we have more to do than time to do it? When did we begin to think that keeping our kids occupied every moment was good so they wouldn’t get into trouble? When did we begin to think that life’s experiences were to be controlled and kids should be kept from them? Doesn’t the experience teach us how to make different choices the next time? Didn’t we all have opportunities to make choices to get bruised, to pick ourselves up and be responsible?

We find ourselves in these hurries constantly. Our bellies and our shoulders are tense, we hold our breath denying ourselves life and we rush to add more which supports this state into our every day lives. It is time to find our way back home; back home to the Truth. We have been making all this up. Life is happening now inside and all around us. All we have to do is be willing to sit for moments a day to witness what is here now. Willing to dive inside and connect to that which is greater than ourselves in order to receive the guidance that is here for us. Willing to ask to lay down the struggle and then let ourselves do it.

We rush blindly into the doing and the having and rarely focus on the being. The Truth is that this journey is teaching us so well even right now even with all the pain and discomfort we are experiencing in this global transformation. It is here for a reason. We created it all, the rushing, the outward focus, the egregious desire for more of everything. And now we are having an opportunity to find something else that will fulfill us because the outward focus never truly provided the happiness its lure promised. The pain and discomfort offer us the opportunity to go inside and find the answers. It is perfect. The pain gets our attention more than the joy and we begin to question; what happened? How did I get here? Then slowly but surely and sometimes swiftly the answers come; beacons in the night, whispers in the wind. Answers as to what we have been doing and how we came so far off path.

Breathe, breathe deeply and fully and keep repeating the Truth “I am safe and I am loved” Keep repeating it until your body believes it and health is restored, until your whole being calms down remembering again who you are and where you came from. Breathe until you become the breath itself; Life, Love and Joy!

This is your birthright! Come breathe and see through the illusions that threaten to overcome us! Come breathe until you remember again!

Breath classes are held every Monday and Friday evenings at 6:30 to 8:30
