waking up to sunshine

Believe in the goodness of your soul.

Acknowledge how well it has guided you.

And yet know that you will fall asleep along the way.

When you sleep,

Take no delight in blaming yourself.

Take delight in waking yourself up once more.

Self blame is the deepest injury,

The deepest sleep of all.

Wake yourself up with gentle affection.

~ Yogi Amrit Desai

I love this.

In the highs and lows of life, its all too easy to become disconnected from our inner Presence.

We fall further asleep when we blame or criticize ourselves and cannot see our innate goodness.

May we all take delight in waking up with more self kindness and love.

  7. This is a beautiful thought and acknowledgment of who we are and life in general. “Acknowledge how well it has guided you. And yet know that you will fall asleep along the way.” Reflecting on the times we sleep is essential as we learn more about ourselves and the ‘chore’ of constant improvement and learning. Wishing you an excellent finish to the week, Val.
