Reflections

Focus

When you focus on yourself and your experience, the world is a better place. See what happens when you make feeling joy your first priority. Fights disappear. Conflict is curious, and you become an observer. Nothing feels personal but your own good feelings. Just try it.

Reflections

The Tide

Your life has a kind of tide: You move into yourself and then move out. There is a rhythm that takes you to the knowledge within and then experiences without. Balance is managing this ebb and flow with peaceful observation, being aware and accepting the movement.

Reflections

Your Emotions

You can choose from so many emotions. You can choose movies that horrify, sports that stress, and news that incites or confuses. There are no bad emotions. Yet, joy tends to feel better than pain, happy feels better than fear, and peace more sublime than chaos. Follow what feels best to you.

Reflections

The Wheel

While summer ascends for some, winter descends for others. The wheel continues to turn throughout all life. You experience your own constantly changing rhythms of aliveness and rest. The wheel is the flow of life, the constant movement is the life force.

Reflections

Growth and Change

You have the ability to grow and change as often as you wish. It’s not mandatory. Some rush to change and grow, others are more comfortable avoiding it. There is no right or wrong to change. It simply is. You are not committed to any one thing unless that is what you choose.

Reflections

It’s About You

Relationships are about you and for you. When happy, frustrated, content, whatever the emotion, it is your experience you are having. Own that. Ask yourself how you want to feel. Resist explaining what the other person should give you and why. That is energy you cannot reclaim.

Reflections

Attaching

Creating a relationship means you are allowing yourself to attach to another. This can be done at many levels and in many ways. Babies are designed to attach. We are all designed to attach to one another to recreate the whole from which we came.

Reflections

Decide for Yourself

You don’t need to understand the motivations of others. What matters is how you decide to interact with others, and if you do it with intention, or feel victimized. Try intention. Believe you get to decide who is in your life or not. Believe in your ability to shape your life.

Reflections

Amazing

Go about doing and dreaming of what brings you joy and makes you smile. It doesn’t matter what happens next. Be in this moment. Allow this moment to absorb you, and have confidence that what happens next will feel amazing.

Reflections

All You Need

You already have all of the information, love, and joy you will ever need. What this life is about is the creativity to uncover it. The boldness to go your own way. The audacity to believe that source exists within you, and is essential to who you are. Reveal it.

Reflections

Transform

There are major life transformations that happen so gradually you don’t even see them. A goal, a dream, a value you held dear may simply vanish. Your mind wants to reclaim it, but your inner wisdom does not find it appropriate for you any more. Release.

Reflections

Drive

You have a drive within that must be honored. Whether you judge that drive as positive or negative, to be fulfilled you must follow the drive. Others too have a drive they must follow. It is what it is, and it is a journey for the soul that the body is witness to.

Reflections

Sleep

Sleep is important. It is easy to cut down on sleep to try to get everything in, but sleep is when your soul gets to be free and stretch (in a way) from being confined in your body. Sleep is a very spiritual experience where you are straddling more than one world.

Reflections

Born Perfect

The symbolism of a child being king, full of love, light, peace, joy, and hope holds a universal truth. You were born of power, full of love, light, peace, joy, and hope. If feels good to connect to that, no matter how remote it may be from your consciousness.

Reflections

Be You

When you are confident with who you really are there is no need to explain your actions or beliefs to others, unless in the explanation you feel joyful. Others may disagree, feel rage or confusion, but if you are comfortable, that is enough. Be unabashedly you.

Reflections

Let Love Win

If you are a witness to cruelty, it can be hard to know how to respond to it. To lash out may be the easiest response, but to try to process it from a place of compassion is a skill honed by those who truly believe love wins. Let love win.

Reflections

Hurdles

You get more than one chance. Don’t be fooled by desperation or pain. You get to try and try again if need be. Some hurdles are higher than others. Others are like invisible walls you run into eyes wide open, yet unable to see. Just connect with your inner wisdom and keep going.

Reflections

Your Perfection

The perfection you do possess is not a thought, or action, or deed, but rather a state of being that you reveal to yourself when you tap into the core of who you really are. The other perfections in life are simply ideas and goals that will never be achieved, but enjoy the journey!

Reflections

Be Good to Yourself

It can be easy to justify more base behaviors because you are tired, or drunk, or unduly influenced, or any number of rational explanations. However, what is missing is how it hurts your soul to lash out at others. How it takes you away from who you really are. Be good to yourself.

Reflections

Teachers

Every person you come in contact with has a purpose in your life, and you in theirs. When you find yourself wrestling with another person’s behavior or choices, examine what their purpose is for you. They have provoked you into an opportunity to let you grow in a new way.
