Reaction to Upsets
We get so upset when we hear something bad said about us. Have we asked ourselves why? We often wish to be loved by everybody. Does it happen in real life? Is it a realistic goal?
Might we enjoy the spaciousness and lightness that we experience once we shed these expectations and assessments about ourselves. It’s quite liberating! Don’t you think so?
Balance & Yoga
The challenges that we face in our life journey can severe us and make us bitter. And we plod through life feeling let down. But just like yoga teaches us, pulling up whilst grounding down to the earth.
How could we translate this? The hardships that we face, difficult decisions that we make as a result gives us the strength and courage. At the same time, let us ground ourselves, connect to our Center and bring out the kindness that is our innate nature.
Living our busy challenging lives, let us stay focused on our tasks, making tough decisions on a daily basis yet tapping into a kindness within each one of us that is our true nature.
Curious to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
One of my dear friends asked me the other day the secret of my happiness.
It got me thinking. I can compare it to me chasing my own shadow. The more I try to catch it, the farther it runs away.
Happiness to me seems similar. I recall waiting for something extraordinary to take place in my life at a subconscious level. It’s only recently that I’ve started enjoying every moment as it unfolds deliberately. The joy, the gladness, the triumph, the sorrow, the pain, the anguish. To marinate with all these emotions with no attachment.
I’ve given myself the permission to simply be the observer rather than wanting to reach a desired state.
It seems to me that my state of mind is a happy one only after I’ve let go of the strong urge to be happy. Quite paradoxical!
Hope this helps you in your journey. Please feel free to comment in the comments section below.
