We human  beings have lost confidence in the body just knowing what to do. If we have time alone with ourselves, we panic and try to do many different things. Mindful breathing helps us to relearn the art of resting. Mindful breathing is like a loving parent cradling a baby, saying, “Don’t worry, I’ll take good care of you; just rest.”

Thich Nhat Hanh

Remembering to be where my feet are planted isn’t always easy.
Quiet or, frankly, ignore my thoughts, look at my feet, be there.
Start there, then move forward purposefully.

Say hello to the sky.
What’s real? What’s important? What matters?
Work hard, smile, laugh, play.

Resolution: Live simply, uncomplicate my home, heart, and mind.

other people’s opinions of me are none of my business

happiness is a personal venture, and has nothing to do with anyone else

a moment of reflection


The world provides us with continual opportunities for practice. When we find ourselves in an emotional reaction, the Universe is giving us a wonderful opportunity to simply pause and feel. For a moment, practice letting go of the story and become aware of the sensations of your body.

Can you rest in that space of just being you?

~ Rachel Scott, Wit & Wisdom from the Yoga Mat

Peace Within

“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have.”
“Where there is anger, there is always pain underneath.”
“Life is the dancer and you are the dance.”
“What a liberation to realize that the “voice in my head” is not who I am. Who am I then? The one who sees that.”
“Being spiritual has nothing to do with what you believe and everything to do with your state of consciousness.”
~Eckhart Tolle
