I wish you a gentle and kind relationship with yourself as you navigate these challenging times.
Human beings are like plants. We do really well in the right conditions and poorly in the “wrong” conditions. It’s up to us to discover what the right conditions are for us to heal.
I sense that death will welcome us into her arms when she is ready for us. It won’t be one moment too late or one moment too soon. She will have her final say.
Did you ever have a day when the best thing feels like beginning again tomorrow. It wasn’t a terrible day just a strange day filled with little inconveniences.
The heart longs for the sweetness and sincerity of kind words, sensitive touch and merciful presence.
An ordinary moment becomes a sacred moment when we’re willing to pause.
Even the deepest suffering will soften in your presence when you realize that you are the tender and unconditional space that pain arises in.
I have learned that I can only know the truth of any situation by being quiet and curious. The mind is a constant feedback loop of the past. It doesn’t leave room for openness, wonder and listening.
If you notice places of tension in your body simply ask yourself, “is this tension necessary right now?” Just a gentle curiosity. No demand for the tension to release or let go. Be patient with yourself.
The heart longs for the sweetness and sincerity of kind words, sensitive touch and merciful presence. When presence meets pain there is something magical and transformative that happens.
