Nature

Nature does not ask for approval. It simply is.

This was the lesson for me this weekend enjoying the fall colors in Budapest.

What does it take for you to simply be? Does this mean that you give up direction and goals? Learning to separate the two might reveal something magical for you.

I urge you to explore ‘being’ in that space

Fear of Inadequacy

life-coaching--mr1sdj1yaa3fgs55d6q3re49fb3em11cuucuwgafm0

(A magyar forditás lent található)

It is simply the nature of life that we experience feelings of inadequacy and insecurity from time to time. The work is to observe this and gently, kindly remind ourselves of our accomplishments in a spirit of gratitude and humility. Building up the trust that each one of us has been beautifully held in the cradle of His Grace. I’m in tears when I consciously remind myself how the Lord has taken such good care of me. May you have a beautiful weekend my treasures 💕💕

Egyszerűen az élet velejárója, hogy időről időre megtapasztaljuk az alkalmatlanság érzését. A feladat az, hogy ezt felismerjük, és gyengéden, kedvesen emlékeztessük magunkat a sikereinkre a hála és szerénység szellemében. Felépíteni a bizalmat amelyet mindenki csodálatosan magában hordoz. A szememből kicsordulnak a könnyek, amikor tudatosan emlékezteten magam arra, hogy milyen jól bánik velem az Úr. Legyen gyönyörű hétvégétek Kincseim.

Weekend Reflections

se-1488884703955f1
I am often asked about how must we deal with various challenges and situations regarding relationships at home and work. I personally have found great solace in using the following keys to help me discern.

Patanjali 4 keys

Friendliness towards the happy
Compassion towards the unhappy
Delight towards the virtuous

Disregard towards the evil

Our emotions are a pre cursor to how we lead our lives in many cases. They determine often the actions that we take. This is the reason our parents asked us to count backwards starting from 10

These keys must be carefully applied backed up by our experiences with the persons that we feel challenged with. I request you to notice and carefully differentiate between our assumptions dominated by mind and ego versus the actual facts that can be proven right or wrong.

Once we have the right key, we can unlock any emotion and place this in the right perspective. We can be saved from emotions like guilt, shame, fear, anger, resentment etc.

Please write to me if you would like to learn more.

My Dance with Wholeheartedness

dreamstime_m_21792409

I was walking out towards my bike following a coaching conversation with one of my dear clients. We spoke about bringing wholeheartedness in his way of being. I checked my phone and noticed a missed call from one of my dearest friends. She is an elderly lady that I love and respect. I called her back right away to hear her sweet voice and words of wisdom. I truly got to practice wholeheartedness when she started singing to me about Divine Grace a concept that is very dear to my heart. I noticed myself smiling, experiencing gratitude, joy and a feeling of dancing with wholeheartedness.

As Brother David says to David Whyte when asked about exhaustion. “The antidote to exhaustion is not necessarily rest and relaxation, the antidote to exhaustion is living wholeheartedly”

I was amazed yet once again at the synchronicity that life brings every minute if we are willing to stop for a few seconds to soak that in consciously. I was physically tired after a whole day of activity, I refrain calling work. I enjoy creating new ways of Beings with my clients. The bike ride back home was full of smiles and an experience of fullness in my way of Being.

Where are you going to bring a sense of wholeheartedness today? Please feel to write in the comments below. What do you experience when you consciously bring this in your way of Being?

Today’s Thoughts

8321672994_3a0910844e_k

I was once again reminded this week that I expect life to flow without hurdles, challenges, difficulties. But this is an unrealistic expectation that ends up making me feel uncomfortable and sticky. I consciously notice, observe, make the shift using wholeheartedness, unbearable lightness of my being to change this expectation. Once I do this, I am able to handle the waves arising out of the ocean with more ease and acceptance. What are you noticing?

Ezen a héten újra emlékeztetve lettem arra, hogy azt várom az élettől, hogy csak folyjon akadályok, kihívások és nehézségek nélkül. De ez egy irreális elvárás, amely végül kényelmetlen, kellemetlen érzést vált ki belőlem. Tudatosan észreveszem, megfigyelem és változtatok az odaadásommal és a létezésem könnyedségével ezen az elváráson. Ha ezt megteszem, akkor képes vagyok az óceánból kitörő hullámokat nyugalommal és elfogadással kezelni. Te mit veszel észre?

Assumptions

5839c236079f6

Are you willing to question and challenge your assumptions about relationships, your beliefs and stories that chain you down? Let go of your expectations about the way that you think your life must unfold and start experiencing the ease and freedom that this brings.

Life is about ease, flowing downstream and learning to accept that every experience is present to support us and help us grow.

Continue setting goals without clinging or contraction around them.

I urge you to start your day today from this space. You might be surprised!

The Guest House

3116786-selimiye-camii-ve-mevlana

Dear Ones

Notice your thoughts, emotions, patterns and welcome them all with kindness and compassion. Learning to give these dignity with a spirit of detachment might surprise you.

Kedvesek

Figyelj a gondolatokra, érzelmekre, mintákra és köszöntsd őket kedvességgel és együttérzéssel. Megtanulni ezt a méltóságot adni az elkülönítés szellemével meglepetést okozhat számodra.

The Guest House

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome, and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
Meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.

Be grateful for whatever comes.
Because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

Jalaluddin Rumi,
translation by Coleman Barks

From the Ancient Texts to Ontological Coaching

main-qimg-f4d36e0156a200bdfb9e602a18d94472-c

I’m sharing this with my readers. The text was downloaded in one of my quiet contemplative moments a few years ago.

This sums up beautifully the work that I do with my clients. Please feel free to ask for a 30 minute conversation free of charge if this is of interest.
The Maha Mritunjaya Mantra from the Upanishads.

A mantra that I often recite and contemplate on. I translate this as per my understanding.

Om triyambakam yajamahe

I bow to Lord Shiva, the one with the open third eye.
Meaning the awakened one

Sugandhim push ti vardhanam

May my virtues grow from more to more.
This can be done by starting to become aware of our thoughts, feelings and emotions. We all have these within us, all we must do is unlock them.

Uravarukameva bandhana

May I be freed from my bondages which I understand to be in the following way.
May I be released from the genetic bondages from this life and past lives, the stories, habits, beliefs that chain us down.

Mrityo mokshiya mamratat

May I be freed from this cycle of evolution and achieve immortality. From death to the Life Eternal.

My personal experience repeating this mantra has been powerful, I have mindfully observed my monkey mind, the demons that attack each one of us and treated each of these so called negative emotions with love, dignity and compassion. Not resisting these but simply honoring them as a welcome guest and working these through. Then just like the ripened fruit or vegetable falls off the branch when it is ready, similarly we are freed from our old stories, beliefs and genetic history that is locked in our DNA. if the fruit stays on the branch after it is ripe, it simply rots. Do we wish to live with rotten patterns that have never served us?

I leave you with this question and encourage you to start a dialogue.

With humility

What resists persists

persistance
Dear Tribe,
What resists persists. Are you willing to let go of the clinging, the identification, the expectation and simply observe without attachment, without belief, without desire for something????
Staying in the here and now is a magical practice. Simply accepting without question. I  cannot change certain situations. Am I going to intelligently let this sink in at a visceral level? This is what comes especially for you as I sit in reflection and prayer.
