To seek greatness outside yourself is turn your back on the treasure within.~ Alan Cohen
You are the great treasure! You’re amazing!. You’re not like everybody else. You’re special, just as you are, so listen within. Listen to your own inner guidance, and be guided from within. Tap into the source, and the potential of all of the unique gifts that have been given to you. Start looking inside, notice your own breath, and how your body moves. Find and pay attention to the fluidity in yourself. Aware of you personally, on and off the yoga mat.
Where you are in this moment. Look around and notice without judgement the different objects and shapes, the colors, the people, the sounds, the smells, and then start to bring your attention inward. Noticing how you feel. The weight of your body on whatever your sitting on, the natural rhythm of your breath. Then close your eyes and take a moment to take a few deep breaths, noticing if your breath slows down, once your breath has returned back to it’s natural rhythm Feel yourself calm and at peace. Sit for a moment just being you. Happy and at peace of being you, and only you. Being content to be just as you are.
Just a thought…
About a year ago I had a dream that I was alone on the beach, and felt a deep sense of joy an peace. I was walking with the waves to my left and the shore to my right. My footsteps hit where the ocean met the sand, with my feet occasionally getting wet, by the still warm waters running in with the waves. The sun sparkled on the water, but it wasn’t so bright to be blinding, just a beautiful glistening. I looked down to where my next step would land, and I noticed a different shimmer. So I stopped to investigate. The next waves white foam receded back to the ocean, revealing parts of a gold chain and pendant encrusted with rubies. The rest was hidden by the sand, but I knew there was more. I couldn’t believe my good fortune – that no one else had seen this.
Today I went for a walk on the beach, and it was so much like my dream, that I kept looking for the treasure – ” just knowing” that it would appear. As I walked, and walked, and walked, I realized the treasure was… the beautiful day, the warm water, the serenity and peacefulness of being alone on the beach. With the luxury of being able to see and feel it all. I couldn’t believe my good fortune. 🙂 and I reminded myself on this week of Gratitude and Thanksgiving, of all we have to be thankful for. Everything is right in front of our us – We have it now! So much to be grateful for! Look for it, it’s all around!
