Love this quote!
Goodnight Blessings
Don’t be afraid to sit alone for a few minutes. The answers will come to you. Recently, I started an experiment. Every time I get in my car I don’t turn on the radio anymore, instead I use the time in my car to talk to myself and listen to my inner voice. Just this one mindful practice has made a positive difference for me. Learning to silence your mind and empty the clutter in your mind takes a lot of practice. So many thoughts enter our mind but one has to develop the skill of pushing them away.

The Fault In Our Stars

The Fault In Our Stars

“Pain has to be felt”

Phenomenal quote from the romantic tragic new film, The Fault In Our Stars. I hadn’t read the book but I wanted to see this movie. It was very therapeutic for me. Having lost a family member to Cancer only four months ago, I knew it would be hard for me to watch the film. But my mantra for this year is resilience so I went to see it by myself. As soon as I heard the quote- Pain has to be felt, I felt a sense of peace and a healing sensation in my body. I’ve never cried in a movie as much as I did today but the tears were cleansing and made me feel lighter. We all have to die someday, some sooner, some later. The love and connection we feel with our soul families continues even after they are no longer with us. I finally understand the meaning of feeling your pain and not trying to runaway or escape from it. This was an amazing experience!
So tonight’s blessing is for other precious souls to not be afraid of feeling your pain.
Blessings,

Goodnight Blessings,
Had an interesting in discussion in class today about expressing emotions and vulnerability. We watched a video of Brene Brown. She has been researching the topic of shame and fear for several years now. I’ve recently understood the meaning of what she’s talking about in her research. Society has forced us to hide behind technology, be afraid to display how we are feeling. We think we will be rejected if we open our true selves to others. The most precious gift we can give to others is our raw, naked, whole hearted self. I’ve been such a guarded person all my life, afraid to trust others, fearing I’m not good enough, not worthy of love and affection. These are just stories we tell ourselves. We are good enough, smart enough, strong enough. We just have to remind ourself. Especially when our heart is broken and we are suffering. This is our human story!

May all precious souls be brave enough to share their authentic selves to the ones they love. May they embrace you whole heatedly and if for some reason, they are not able to do that for you then understand that is about their story and not about your worthiness.

Love & Light

The Journey

One day you finally knew
what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you
kept shouting
their bad advice —
though the whole house
began to tremble
and you felt the old tug
at your ankles.
“Mend my life!”
each voice cried.
But you didn’t stop.
You knew what you had to do,
though the wind pried
with its stiff fingers
at the very foundations,
though their melancholy
was terrible.
It was already late
enough, and a wild night,
and the road full of fallen
branches and stones.
But little by little,
as you left their voices behind,
the stars began to burn
through the sheets of clouds,
and there was a new voice
which you slowly
recognized as your own,
that kept you company
as you strode deeper and deeper
into the world,
determined to do
the only thing you could do —
determined to save
the only life you could save.

Any Moment

Any Moment

So here is a rule to remember in future, when anything tempts you to feel bitter: not, ‘This is a misfortune,’ but ‘To bear this worthily is a good fortune’… If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself but to your own estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.

– Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

Take Time

Take Time

All that you need is deep within you waiting to unfold and reveal itself. All you have to do is be still and take time to seek for what is within and you will surely find it.
