Sunday inspiration: Cling to nothing

Cling to nothing, not even to the idea of letting go.

Remember that releasing the old will happen when you are ready and not a moment before.

Your task is not to force anything, but to ALLOW.

Like leaves falling naturally from the trees in autumn, your past will fall away naturally when you allow it to become truly past.

-Dorothy Mendoza Row


I was working with a client not too long ago who had been working with the Visioncrafting process and was frustrated with the way it was going despite her very hard work.  She was focusing so hard on her vision, she said, that it gave her a headache – yet still nothing happened.

The evolution of our life is a natural process.  Creating a vision for our life is a powerful expression of the soul – and then the soul takes over the path and direction that one needs to take in order to see the vision become a reality that is greater than anything we could have possibly imagined.

To achieve this state of pure being and presence, in which we cling to nothing, we must allow the heart to soften and relax so that the breath can flow freely through the body and the spirit.  Even in the midst of a stressful day or moment we can turn our focus to the path of the breath within the body and unwind any tension that keeps us from an experience of flow.  Is the throat constricted?  Is the chest tight? Is there a gripping feeling in the belly? Allow the breath to fill the body and soften us.

In this way peace can be achieved within, and our lives transformed.

Sunday inspiration: Make yourself miracle-ready

An inifinitude of miracles are waiting to emerge into your experience,

if you are miracle-ready enough to receive them.

Make yourself miracle-ready by giving up judgement,blame, attack, criticism, victimhood, obsession with yesterday or tomorrow, fear-based scripts or explanations and self-centered goals.

This makes your mind an open vessel for the love that will then flow into you and through you.

(Thanks to Azima for this quote)

Sunday inspiration: Simplicity, patience, compassion

“Simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures. Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of being. Patient with both friends and enemies, you accord with the way things are. Compassionate toward yourself, you reconcile all beings in the world.”

― Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching

Sunday inspiration: A life of deep awareness

this present moment

The secret of beginning a life of deep awareness and sensitivity lies in our
willingness to pay attention.

Our growth as conscious, awake human beings is
marked not so much by grand gestures and visible renunciations as by extending
loving attention to the minutest particulars of our lives.

Every relationship,
every thought, every gesture is blessed with meaning through the wholehearted
attention we bring to it.

In the complexities of our minds and lives we easily
forget the power of attention, yet without attention we live only on the surface
of existence.

It is just simple attention that allows us truly to listen to the
song of a bird, to see deeply the glory of an autumn leaf, to touch the heart of
another and be touched.

We need to be fully present in order to love a single
thing wholeheartedly.

We need to be fully awake in this moment if we are to
receive and respond to the learning inherent in it.

~Christina Feldman and Jack Kornfield,

Sunday inspiration: Live the question

Have patience with everything that remains unsolved
in your heart.
Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms
and like books written in a foreign language.
Do not now look for the answers.
They cannot now be given to you
because you could not live them.
It is a question of experiencing everything.
At present you need to live the question.
Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it,
find yourself experiencing the answer,
some distant day.
