Illuminated Self

The mind does not shine by it’s own light it too is illuminated by the self. – 4.19 Yoga Sutras of Patanjali

Our mind is separate from our self. The self, cannot be changed from thinking it so, even though it is the beginning. The self is illuminated by more of a knowing – like our intuition. So tapping in to our true selves is the key, to illuminating ourselves from within.  

Silence our minds, realize our true nature, surrender, and allow an easy way of being.

Path of Least Resistance

He who lives in harmony with himself lives in harmony with the universe.  Marcus Aurelius

Nature does not hurry yet everything is accomplished. Lao Tzu

Nature always will choose the path of least resistance or effort. In yoga we learn to not muscle tuniversehrough a pose with force, we relax and surrender into the pose finding our energetic strength and softening around it. In life, we sometimes fight what comes easiest with the thought that if it comes easy, it’s not worthy, or not the best choice. That whatever has come your way, doesn’t look exactly the way you wanted it to, so you let it pass by.

Take three long deep breaths here…relax and surrender to the flow of the universe. Allow the universe to work for you. Accept people, and circumstances that come your way.  Let the universe work in your favor. Move towards what you want, but notice the opportunities that come.

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.
