Sunday afternoon musings

The body feels tired and weak after a nasty virus. The mind is dull, working very hard to take me away from center. My work is to simply observe with a quality of detachment and non participation. This is freedom. What will your practice be this week? Namaste, Prerna Vasárnap délutáni merengés A test fáradtnak … Continue reading Sunday afternoon musings

Kindness to Self Weekend

Many of my conversations this week revolved around how we as a human race are incapable of being kind to ourselves. We are constantly in service towards our loved ones without even exploring the capacity to show a small amount of kindness to self.

Greetings from Amalfi!

Greetings from Amalfi! My practice this week has been to consciously remind myself to stay laser focused on Life as it unfolds.

They … Continue reading Weekend Post

Wholehearted Gratitude

I find myself going back to practicing gratitude wholeheartedly this week. What does this mean? Why do we need this? We find that life stops giving us joys like it used to. We notice exhaustion and a lack of purpose. We almost start living on auto pilot. I find the practice of putting pegs of … Continue reading Wholehearted Gratitude

Summer evenings on the banks of the Danube

I especially love my summer evenings when I can take a walk on the banks of the Danube River in Budapest, Hungary. I feel incredibly blessed to live in this beautiful city. On one such evening, as I was doing a walking meditation and listening to meditative music, I noticed the beautiful color of the … Continue reading Summer evenings on the banks of the Danube
