“Too much time is squandered on
What was and
What might be
Leaving only table scraps for
Wu Hsin from the Lost Writing of Wu Hsin translated by Roy Melvyn
Table scraps have their uses… yet can’t sustain us.
Pause and take time to Find your Middle Ground.
Embrace each moment fully and nourish your very being.

“To have the courage to
Question one’s certainties, is
True courage.” ~ The Lost Writings of Wu Hsin translated by Roy Melvyn
Sit with this a while and see what comes up for you…
Bringing our awareness to the beliefs that we hold, and usually take for granted, is the first step in our personal growth and spiritual self inquiry. When we look inwards and question our thinking and assumptions, it opens up new perspectives and gives us the opportunity to learn about what has been unknown…. or what may never be discoverable in this life.
This venture into the unknown is a courageous path because the ego-mind will be alert for any conflicting views or threats to its long held position. The ego holds on to those beliefs that have become our certainties about life. It can keep us rigid, stubborn, critical and damning, or simply safe and stuck.
The choice is ours. To embrace the new or hold on to our certainties.
To those on the path of Yoga teacher training, take courage as you embrace what is beyond belief.

“The only difference between
A Teacher and a Student is that
The Student believes that
There is a difference whereas
The Teacher knows there is none.”
~ Wu Hsin
The best teachers in all aspects of life are perpetual students, open to learning and letting go of what they have been told is the truth.
Only the ego creates a hierarchy to uphold and defend.
It’s so freeing to step into an other realm where our conditioning doesn’t get in the way of our evolution … and we can play and learn together.

“The natural life is not
A life without warts.”
~ Wu Hsin Translated by Roy Melvyn from “The Lost Writing of Wu Hsin”
These words brought a smile today.
Ah yes, we may want life to be flowing and “natural”, yet we tend not to accept the very nature of it.
Embrace the highs and lows of life my friends.
When the innumerable searches are concluded,
The realization dawns that
The optimal place to be is
Where one already is.
It is an arrival at the place
Where there is no solid footing beneath,
The understanding of all things.
Until the conclusion,
The searcher is like
A cod asking directions to the ocean
~ Wu Hsin from “The Lost Writings” translated by Roy Melvyn
Wu Hsin’s insights into spirituality and Oneness always bring a smile.
It isn’t easy learning to go with the flow, until we stop asking for directions, and find the courage to be with no solid footing.

One’s ideas of oneself
Change over time.
Being is constant.
Therefore, the choice is between
Attending to the changeful and
Attending to the changeless.
~ Wu Hsin, Translated by Roy Melvyn from
The Lost Writings of Wu Hsin
A simple wise message about what we choose to attend to.
Let us pay attention to our being today, and let go of the perceived changes.

“A nose kept in books
Cannot smell the dogwoods.
While the scholars are
Studying the menu,
The wise are eating the meal.”
~ Wu Hsin
What a great reminder to really tuck into life 💛
