BE WHAT YOU SEEK

 

BE what you seek in others.  

If you seek LOVE.  Be Love.

If you seek understanding.  Give it.

Be that thing you seek from others.

 

 

LISTENING

 

Listening equals Loving.

 

OUR OWN UNGUARDED THOUGHTS

 

“Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as Your Own Unguarded Thoughts.” says the Buddha.

 

 

TRY

 

Just because someone else’s path is different than ours, doesn’t mean they are lost.

Just because they don’t do things the way we do, doesn’t mean it isn’t as effective.

I have learned that we are often stuck in our own heads.  Our own experiences.  Our own pain and suffering.  Our own joys.

I’m not going to say that it is easy.  It is a lifetime worth of work being open to others’ ways.  But try.

 

YOU CAN DO ANY THING

 

It is said that “You can do ANY thing.  But you can’t do EVERY thing.”  

 

NEXT TIME BEIJING

 

I was supposed to be in Beijing, China this whole week, but I couldn’t get a Visa in time.  

I tried my best.  Things were looking up a few times.  I was determined to go.  I had always talked about going to China, among other places.  I thought it was finally the perfect moment to go.  The opportunity presented itself just a couple of weeks beforehand. 

But I’m here writing from home.  It was not meant to be.

I figured that other Great things will happen to me while in town this week.  And it certainly has been great!  Incredible as a matter of fact.  Full of music and great food. Great company.  Family.  Friends.  

I certainly would not trade this week for anything.  So next time Beijing!

BE GRATEFUL FOR IT

 

One of my favorite authors, Paulo Coelho wrote, “Some of my friends are very poor; the only thing that they have is money.” 

This is not to make us feel better because we don’t have as much money as others do.  It is not an excuse to having less.  Not an excuse to stop trying. 

It is to recognize that money isn’t everything.  Sure it makes the world go ‘round.  Sure it’s nice not to have to worry about having enough money.  But whenever you do have enough, Notice it.  Be grateful for it.  Don’t flaunt it.

BENEFITS OF YOGA

 

There are many benefits to yoga.

My 94-year-old student told me at the end of class that he feels “GREAT!”

He was feeling pain right under his ribs before class and after class: it was GONE.

I love what I do!  I love to witness the benefits of yoga.
