We all need to take time for ourselves and nurture our inner being and creative spirit. This trip is for a Yin Yoga Teacher Training program. I look forward to being in community with some wonderful, kind and talented yogis.
While I am away I will be taking a break from social media and blogging. Thank you for your understanding 🙏
When we are mindful of the present moment and simply allow it to be, we open a door to our natural state of being – accepting, loving, peaceful, kind and content. Most of us are so distracted and moving so fast that we get caught up in the world of “doing” or worrying about what might happen and what we should be doing.
Too much doing and thinking disconnects us from our sense of “being”and who we really are.
I write about finding this place of connection, contentment and peace in the highs and lows of life. I call it your Middle Ground.
The Sacred Pause (09/30/2015)
When we are lost in the trance of doing, our lives are on automatic, and contracted by sense that something’s wrong or missing. This talk explores the challenges of learning to pause, and the blessings that arise when step out of our incessant mental and physical activity and reconnect with the being-qualities of presence, wisdom and love.
I recorded this 2 minute meditation for those of you who (1) would like to take a mindful pause in your day and/or (2) are curious to hear my voice. I’m not sure of the quality of the audio. Please let me know how it comes over.
And now settle in and come into the present moment with me.
“To find yourself in a relaxed, peaceful place. Just taking a few deep breaths. Letting go of everything out side of this space. And in this moment allow yourself to fall into the deepest part of yourself.
With each full breath allow yourself to fall outside of the world of time, the world of change, and into the part of yourself that was never involved in any of it.
This which is already at peace, deeply at ease. Allow yourself to fall into a place where nothing ever happened and nothing will ever happen. Into perfect peace.
With each inhale and exhale, simply allowing everything to be as it is in this moment. No need for anything to be any particular way. Falling into a part of the self that’s utterly unperturbed by anything that happens in this world.
There is no relationship to anything at all. At peace with everything. Free of everything. Always perfect peace, perfect stillness and fullness and freedom.
