As I enter my third week of conscious eating, inspired by my 21 year old stepdaughter, I had an epiphany. It’s what we all really know,… but somehow this week it hit me deeply, and really resonated with me. My intention is for this message is that I hope that it helps you too!
With every choice no matter how big or small we face a consequence for that action. But, If we couple that choice, with our most important choice of what our intention is, then the choices and decisions become much easier. With my intention of being healthy, the conscious choice to pick whole natural foods, and to continue with my practice of yoga, is easy. Why would I want to choose to consume anything other then whats healthy for my body, when my intention is to be healthy. The intention of living a happy life, will keep only happy, positive healthy people around you. If you apply this to your relationships, your job, or your life as a whole, changes will become easier. You begin living, the life that you want to live.
The way you live in each moment, matters. We are connected to each other in ways that we don’t even fully comprehend. Or, at least, we seem to act like we don’t understand. Newton has told us that every action has an equal an opposite reaction. Knowing with this law, it’s surprising that we tend to forget that what we put out, comes back to us. Why would we ever choose to act in any other way than, kind, loving, caring, and compassionate, or any other positive attribute. Because all that we want to receive is good, and positive.
Galileo tells us that in the absence of any force or friction, that a moving object will continue moving. So positive and negative words and thoughts, and the energy that comes with them, can perpetuate. Hopefully we’ll allow the positive influences to continue on indefinitely. I know that at times it becomes hard when what comes towards you is less than positive, and you instantly want to give back what was given to you. But your world, and your extended world would be so much better if you made the change, and shifted your reaction to a positive one.
This is how you can help make the world a better place. This is how you can make a difference, by shifting anything negative to positive, and by letting anything positive, carry on.
Yoga is not just a physical workout, but it’s working on yourself from the inside out. Helping us to remember what’s inside of us – our beauty, our strengths, our divine uniqueness. We learn to bend, so we don’t break. Flowing with the direction of the current, riding it out, and seeing what the universe bring’s across our path. Noticing without judgement. We learn to not take things personally. To listen from within, finding our truth, our guidance. We learn to speak and live this truth, in a kind way – Finding our strength and our peace.
