Gratitude of Breath

Meditate for a moment, with gratitude, of all that you have to be grateful for, starting with your breath… this is what I said at the end of teaching, my very first yoga class, this past weekend. Because in yoga, and in life, we begin and end with breath.  There are times in our lives where we forget that simple fact. We get caught up in the drama of whats going on around us, that we forget that we have anything to be grateful for, when we really have so much.

I believe that the things that come so easy to us, are our greatest gifts. We take our breath for granted, but without it, we would have no experiences at all. Think about how important your breath would be to you, if you knew you only had five more breaths. Think about other basic and awe inspiring gifts that you have; like your sight, your sense of touch, the ability to feel, to taste, to hear, to heal, to think. If any one of these were the newest invention, how badly would you want them. Think about other talents that are unique to you, they just come easy. You are amazing, and you didn’t even have to do anything.

Then give yourself a little self love , and reflect, – on just how amazing you are!

Then come back to your gift of breath… We haven’t been promised any set amount. We aren’t owed this opportunity. Yet we have the opportunity to take care of these gifts, to use them, cherish them, and to create experiences for them. Be grateful for this opportunity. Be grateful for, if nothing else, your breath.

If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, “Thank You”, that would suffice. – Meister Eckhart

With Love, Gratitude, and Appreciation – Everyday make a mental list of everything you have to be grateful for. It will remind you of whats important. Like being grateful for your breath, and the fact that your alive. Give Thanks for everything that happens to you,  and find the good in it all. Develop this attitude of gratitude for all things, and the result for this work will be to find pure joy. Because a grateful person is always a happy person, and being happy is the life that we all seek.

Just a thought… And, thank you for reading my blog 🙂

Surrender -To A New Way Of Being

“…Very little grows on jagged rock.

Be ground. Be crumbled.

So wildflowers will come up where you are.

You’ve been stoney for too many years.

Try something different. Surrender”


Let Go! Not – give up. Surrender to what we have no control of.  Surrender to faith. Be humble. Let go of the ego, and all you think you can control. Work on you. 

Crumble in a way that makes the soil in you the most fertile, for new growth, for a new way of being.

Turn loose, and be grateful for whatever comes your way.

Just a thought…
