FREE OURSELVES OF THINGS

 

Letting Go is difficult.  

But even of things we Don’t use?  Or don’t even Like that much?  It’s a continuous struggle.  That is why I am very careful of what I bring into my home.   

Are we buying way TOO many things?  Spending way too much money because we want others to like and accept us?

Joshua Becker, writer of The More Of Less says that:

WE ARE GETTING EMBARRASSED OVER THE WRONG THINGS.

“What if…  Instead of being embarrassed over the brand of our clothing, we became embarrassed over the Enormity of our walk-in closet.

What if…  Instead of being embarrassed over the type of car we drive, we became embarrassed over how Often we take the luxury of automobile ownership for granted. 

What if…  Instead of being embarrassed because our house seems too small, we became embarrassed over the Amount of unused space within it.

What if…  Instead of being embarrassed over the quality and quantity of our possessions, we became embarrassed over How much money we have spent on our own selfish pursuits.

What if…  EXCESS became the cause of embarrassment.

And responsible living, the champion GENEROSITY became the norm.”

Let us FREE ourselves of THINGS.  To make a Positive difference in this world.  Even if just to the people close to us.

 

JUST HAD TO SAY IT

 

 

COME WHAT MAY

 

Everything seems to always work out.  And even if they don’t work out as planned, I think in the end, we’ll be in perfect harmony.  

It was supposed to rain this morning.  Reports said that there was 80 percent chance of rain from 8 to 10 this Sunday morning (and class was 8:30-9:30 am).  

It drizzled a few times, but in the end, we had a joyous yoga practice in the middle of loads of greenery. 

The temperature was perfect.  I welcomed the drops of water hitting my body.

We looked up at the blue sky, instead of a ceiling.  We felt the wind in our skin.  We inhaled fresh air.  Shavasana (Relaxation pose) was so grounding, laying down outstretched, touching the earth.

What more can I ask for at that very moment?  Nothing more.  And nothing less.  

And after experiences like this, we are more equipped to accept things that come our way.  Come what may.

 

MY VERSION OF MAGIC

 

Since I do believe in Magic and Miracles, I like to take note of them.   

Recognize them in detail.  Make a list. 

It’s Magic that yesterday, at 4:43 in the afternoon, my 8-year-old niece said “Hi” to me over text.  She also informed me that she’s listening to “Fight Song by Rachel Platten”.  

I love that she even names the artist.  I think she’s also musically inclined.

Then she concludes her string of texts with a video of herself blowing me a kiss after drawing a heart via phone graphics.

That’s my version Magic!  And SHE is a Miracle to me.

 

DIVINE SELF

 

Let the Divine Perfection inside you express itself.   Let it come out.

I forget to do this all the time.  And that is why I write about it.

We are so much more than what our minds think we are.  

We Shine.  We Brighten.  We Compel.  We Sore to great heights.  We get things done!  And Well.  We are Magnificent.

Often, I write down all the things I have accomplished at the end of the day.  Especially when I think I haven’t accomplished much .  And the list is  ALWAYS  longer than I had originally thought or felt.

Try it.  Write down everything.   

I hope you recognize a more Authentic, Vibrant, Brilliant, Divine self.

 

SOAR HIGH

 

It’s hard to fly (or go anywhere at all) when things are weighing us down.  

Today, Let Go of judgements.  Or even just one.  Then FLY.

See what happens when you fly.  Tell me how it felt.

I have let go of any judgements toward yoga students who come to class and do What they want to do and When they want to do them — During Class.  

Yes: they come and pay and practice in a class setting, and then do other postures while everyone else is doing the posture the teacher is instructing.  And then yes, the same student tells you at the end of class how Wonderful it was.

I have a student like that who comes on a monthly basis.  

Obviously it isn’t just the teacher who is Baffled by this behavior.  The other students as well.  Especially the few who practice in close vicinity to them.  

I have learned to not take anything personally, especially behaviors from people whom I do not know personally.  

I may not agree with such behaviors, but I surely do not need to be offended by them.  At least not for long.  I try to let them be.  Let it be.

Then SOAR HIGH.

MAGIC & MIRACLES

 

Magic happens all the time.  Miracles happen all the time.  

Do you believe this? 

I do!  

I hope you do too.
