108 Intentions Day18

Enough
It's enough to offer love,
no matter how imperfectly
received or given.
It's enough to try and fail
at a difficult task;
enough to fall and rise, stumble,
fall again, sigh, and start
to walk, however slowly,
in the direction the soul points.
It's enough to seek peace
and find pain,
to gain nothing but a vision of truth,
and take the long route home. ************************
It's enough to feel temptation,
the dance of the senses,
the hot pull of desire;
enough to call on God,
walk through fire, sleep and
cry and fear or welcome dying.
It’s enough to be and breathe,
to feel the touch of wind on the skin. ************************
It's enough
to take the day as it comes,
to watch the ripples on the lake as
the rock sinks to the bottom,
to see the wild reflection of the surface
calm into a mirror once again.
It's enough
to hear the voice of fear
and hide—or seek it out
and face the same or shadows.
It's enough
to set out to tame demons
and watch them multiply instead.
It's enough to be buffetted
by the winds of change
and not blown over.
I and you and all of us,
more than enough. —Danna Faulds ************************ #108Intentions #yogaeverydamnday #livingyoga #intelligentflow #being #skillfulliving

108 Intentions Day 16

New Beginning! It’s a new day. It’s a new month. And Today marks the beginning of my 8th year studying and living in the US. Still the feeling of the moment I took my first step on this continent is still fresh-The excitement and fear of being in new country, new culture and the UNKNOWN. The past 7 years have witnessed my walking closer and coming home to myself with the practice of YOGA and Ayuveda, which taught me about compassion and love for oneself and for others! Yes Compassion! It’s a great reminder to simple relax into this moment being in the wave of challenge for the past two months working through healing. This photo resonates with me for the attitude of both courageous bravery and surrendering ease towards the waves of life. 📷@emilie

Sometimes help can come from UNEXPECTED WAYS & MEANS.
Big or Small, Man or Beast all can deliver miracles if you have the heart like this dog.

Leadership is not about you, it is always about others. What do you want? What is better for you? What can I do to make it even better? What experience are you looking forward? Which kind of experience will make you happy? And so forth the list goes on.
Leadership is in utilising your precious time for the betterment of others which will lead to betterment of organisation or society in large.

Sometimes we just need to be reminded of the TRUTH!

"Are you grateful for the blessings in your life?" -Dr. Michael Finkelstein #77questions #skillfulliving #slowmedicine 🌱🌻💕Take a moment to count all the beautiful blessings in your life today!

We’ve all heard it before...we’re built with two ears and one mouth so we can listen twice as much as we speak. But listening is not a skill we necessarily learn to do skillfully...we rarely cultivate it through practice. We don’t learn to pull back, to listen until someone is done sharing, to listen with the intent to understand or learn rather than planning our response. Intelligence speaks. It asserts. It proves. It tells. Wisdom listens. Wisdom sits back. Wisdom waits. Wisdom observes. Wisdom sees. Wisdom hears. Wisdom doesn’t need to assert, it knows. Wisdom doesn’t need to force or prove, it trusts. It’s not complacent, but it is patient. Wisdom pauses without letting time slip by. Wisdom is not boastful or brazen. It’s subtle but extremely strong, palpable. And it lives in the ability to listen. To see through and beyond our own intelligence and what we “know” to what we are meant to learn and understand. #grittybuddha #yoga #meditation #consciouscommunity #goodkarma #humanconnection #skillfulliving #wisdom #empathiclistening

108Intentions Day 15 Forgiving!
My dear Meditation teacher Sudir Jonathan Frost once gave us a journal prompt last summer on my advanced training of the meditation module—-“What’s lying between you and feeling free?” In this very moment and over the many moments of the past weeks of my life transitions with unexpected unpleasant surprises, forgiving with compassionate acceptance has been my daily practice which has been the light guiding me out of the darkness—seeing us as flawed human and caressing the hurt inflicted on me uninvited/unfair with the greater understanding of humanity.

Goodnight. It’s bedtime for this old Buddhist. Not a Parinirvana but simply a restorative sleep making for skillful living and care of the body and the mind. Helps to maintain physical health and clarity of mind. Tomorrow. #buddha #buddhism #parinirvana #bedtime #sleep #skillfulliving #gayboy

Go out and learn something new today. Try something you haven’t tried. Look like a fool. Figure shit out. Grow. Grow your curiosity. Grow your capacity. Grow your humility. Grow your Self. Stop limiting what you do to what you’ve always done. It’s good for the brain. It’s good for the soul. #grittybuddha #inquirewithin #lifeenrichment #skillfulliving #yoga #meditation #glencove #ny

We’re so proud to share this bright moment and the vibrant smile belonging to our beloved student @alliepatricia517 - It's official! Yoga Teacher Training 200 hour complete. I am grateful for this life changing experience. It makes perfect sense that this course was titled Inquire Within - in the past few months, I have learned so much about the practice of Yoga and about myself. I am eager to continue to make progress.. first as a student and as a teacher. I am ready to take on whatever life throws my way with the tools of this practice. The course may be complete.. but it's just the beginning. Thank you Gritty Buddha family for your guidance, support and love.

Good Sunday morning everyone everywhere from Little Rock, Arkansas. Like this guy I meditate regularly. The ancient practice of meditation calms me, relaxes me, and helps to keep me centered. It restores my equanimity. Meditation’s part of my Buddhist skillful living effort and endeavor. Whatever your religious or spiritual practice or leaning, I encourage you to give meditation a try. I think you’ll benefit from it like I have. #sundaymorningreflections #meditation #buddhism #equanimity #skillfulliving #worksforme #recoveringcatholic #littlerockarkansas #gayboy
