I pay attention to where my highest gladness and the highest need of the world intersect.
Tune into my body, and use a tool to remember that this person is whole and complete, they’re contributing to me, they deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, they have goals and dreams and a desire to make a difference, they have all their own answers.
Everyone is suffering and has suffered, and no one can live someone else’s life for them. That you are living your life is in and of itself heroic. I respond with compassion.
How fast my thoughts move, how they pair with emotions, and how when I listen to them, I can sight of what truly matters.
It helps me be present to the moment, and focus on what I can contribute to the moment.
Breathe into my lower belly.
I also treasure my body’s ability to heal quickly! And that I am mostly free of aches and pains. That I do not have to think about physical pain very often is a great blessing.
My husband who is always, always there for me as best he can be is endlessly patient with me. The universe is sending me so many supports – some obvious and others more subtle/surprising – to guide me along my path.
Stillness, allows me to experience the quiet, steady, peace and calm within. Ritual helps me remember the mystery of life.
The month of October, which has been emotional, uplifting, and tough. I appreciate all the lessons therein, which were key to growing out of an old pattern.
I feel optimistic when I see possibilities and potential for creating something.
I am noticing a greater capacity to handle high and powerful emotions.
To take good care of myself and my husband, to take time for tenderness.
I have enough possibilities and opportunities in my life. I know when I have enough because they’re endless, if I am just looking for them.
I would be able to experience it purely.
When I feel anger, remember the snake, which symbolizes anger in Tibetan Buddhism. It hurts me to feed the snake.
By returning to my body and breath periodically and taking in all the gifts that are in the world.
Take my skills, talents, knowledge, and powers to make sure the earth is livable for all of us.
I can connect more deeply with my coworking community.
I am called to slow down, focus on my body and breath, and take into my heart all the wonders that surround me. It matters because when I life gratefully, I contribute positively to people and situations around me.
