Yogi Words

Breathe & Recieve
Breathe & ReceiveChange is inevitable. You can react or respond to it. Change can break into your life and disturb your routine flow, or you can invite it in to have a cup of tea and become one with it. Your ability to manage change is what will make a difference. In a game of sameness vs. change – change always wins; it cancels out the stagnant, the static and the complacent.  

Change is the Only Constant
As we move from moment to moment, we become walking transitions. We chase things and desperately hold on to what we already have. Yet when change comes, we become tense.

Fear exists with change. When we can accept that simple fact, we can ask at the same time “What do I have to do and what do I have to give up to get to where I need to be? How can I embrace the fear of change to create the life I want?”

Let’s Just Go!
…and not come back for a while. Humans are creatures of habit. So it helps to break that habit and be more spontaneous every now and then. Truly important things in life, ie. well-being, mental health, relations and staying young, become apparent by being more spontaneous and allowing yourself a bit of a mental awakening. Becoming spontaneous is a process – often combined with almost a therapeutic approach aimed at breaking down the walls of own habit, convictions and fears. Don’t think too long about it, just go!

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost. 

Silence Speaks When Words Can Not
Perhaps silence is not really empty. Maybe silence speaks in a special, sometimes mysterious language of the heart. We can then hear the birds. The wind. The waves. Our own thoughts. Who we really are. Whose we are. Challenge yourself to replace unnecessary noise with silence today.

Adopt the Pace of Nature, Her Secret is Patience
Good things take time to build. Time is a barrier to entry that lets those that have patience triumph over those that are unwilling to sacrifice and wait.

Stillness is not the absence of energy, life, or movement. Stillness is dynamic. It is not conflicted movement, life in harmony with itself, skill in action.
