For those who are half-hearted, the way is not easy. For those who are fully committed, the way can get even harder.
Do I wish I never started?
- Sometimes.
Does it make me want to quit?
- Repeatedly.
Will I quit?
- Hell no.
So what to do?
- Continue.
And in the meantime, discover myself like no other way can show me πŸ’™

Love ❀️

Nothing can make us feel more alive or scared. But if we want to feel something REAL and truly worthwhile, we really do have to surrender it.
Whether its about having the courage to give our WHOLE self to it or to get out of our own way to shamelessly receive it. Hopefully, if we are so lucky, we will meet someone who allows us to feel the safety to do both freely.

In this moment I am deeply in love. And so grateful to have enough quiet and space within myself to feel tenderly into this incredible time.

And as this new chapter starts writing itself, all I can do is patiently wait to see what unfolds πŸ’—

On a lazy Sunday morning, something magical happened ✨
#love #heputaringonit

** No Class Tomorrow ** For those who I haven't been in touch with yet, just letting you know tomorrow morning's class will not be on.
I'm allowing myself a little extra time after my Zen Retreat ☺️ It was wonderful to practice intensively and now being back, I'm letting the pieces gently come back together.

I'm back teaching as per normal (promise!) this Saturday 7am @ Healthy Lifestyle Club Bundall & Sunday 8.30am @ World Gym Burleigh ❀️

To recognise ourselves right now, as we are, is a truly remarkable discovery.

We put so much effort into our imaginary empires but do we see who we are right now? Not trying to be more than or less than, but to see ourselves entirely.
Already whole.
Just as is.
Simply as this.
Let us not get so caught up in our dreams that we neglect the person who is standing right here; the one who has made all of the previous dreams a reality.

There is so much to be found right here.

Already whole.
Just as is.
Simply as this. πŸ’™

I'll be back teaching on Monday, 3rd of July πŸ’™ xx

We must be very clear to ourselves about what makes us whole. We don't even have to search too far, something inside of us already knows this truth.
Yes, this life is short, but there are plenty of opportunities for us to make it meaningful. To be anchored in who we are and from there, offer our contribution.
In fact, moment after moment, we are given this opportunity. How lucky we are! πŸ’—
.

This time next week, I'll be heading off on a one week Zen Retreat with my Beloved Teacher and Zen Group.
.

So it's one more week of classes as per normal before I hide away in the forest, all rugged up and immerse myself in Zen. You can say, it's how I treat myself ☺️

"We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice 10 years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the ONLY moment there is for us to be alive." - Thich Nhat Hanh

And the love affair continues.

Let's just say me and practice are more than just friends πŸ˜‰

Practicing my all time favourite #viparitasalabhasana in my favourite Guru Set by @bhaktiniwear πŸ’•

That moment when we step into our practice space.
When what has been is in the past and the future is none of our concern.
Not one idea is useful.
All we feel is the earth beneath us.
So solid. So stable. So reliable.
And breath by breath, more and more,
We get back home. πŸ’™

At the end of it all, as we take our last breath, we will realise that there will be nothing we can cling to and not one thing that we can keep. And the final exhalation is when we truly let it all go.

All that would remain is the memory of how we made others feel, how much safety we provided and how well we loved.

Think kindly.
Speak kindly.
Act kindly.

Just be kind πŸ’™

We often confuse reacting with responding, which get us in all kinds of trouble.
.

To react means for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. We kick something out of anger, our foot hurts. We spit up in the sky, it comes back in our face.
.

To respond, on the other hand, means to feel, to sense, to resonate with, to be in tune and to come into alignment rather than oppose.
.

When we respond, we meet mind to mind, eye to eye, heart to heart.
.

Next time we catch ourselves reacting, come back to the present moment. Relax the discriminating mind, stop opposing and come back to the breath.
.

Let others reach you. Resonate with them. Breathe with them. Be with them. Respond.
