Acceptance vs Boundaries

APRIL WEEK 1

SUNDAY: SPIRITUAL: Surrender to the “Whys” with a “Thank You”

As you write this week I hope you will keep in mind that as we strive to live with acceptance, boundaries must also be taken into consideration. Connect with that place where you end, and where another begins. Sometimes it is hard to see the lines because of the blending, which is good, which is not good, which is neither – it just is.

Accepting that you are a spiritual being with your soul’s purpose being to seek and create positive energy of love is the first step in finding fulfillment in our spiritual aspect of wellness. At times we become frustrated when we have to endure things in life that we do not understand. Today, I hope you can begin to let go of needing to know all of the “whys” and try to live with gratitude, knowing that the rewards will come when the time is right. Accept that God has a grand master plan for you and for generations to come, who will reap the rewards of your choice to live with integrity and continue to walk in faith.

What is weighing on your mind today that is affecting your spirit? Can you let this go and continue to seek and create love with faith?

A New Place and Thyme

There are many ways to reach or attain a goal, choosing the path that will bring you the most joy in the process is what true living is all about. If the end result is going to be the same, it is in how you get there that will really count. So decide what seeds you are going to plant by visualizing your endgame, be sure what you are planting can withstand your potential elements and know that when they do fully bloom you may in a new place and time (or in my case thyme), and live.

No matter what your dream is, it is sure to require patience. The greatest gifts are those that transpire everywhere else in your life once your hardy seeds are planted.

RESPECT: Become the Glass

During yoga teacher training Yogis are taught the Yamas and Niyams: the ten ethical practices or rules of right-living that are derived from Hinduism. These, amongst other gifts offer an opportunity to live with respect. Respect for yourself, others and the Greater plan.

Respect in our spiritual aspect of wellness comes naturally when we follow these practices, which are somewhat parallel to The Ten Commandments that are taught in Christianity and Judaism; varied, yet similar, teachings are taught in each religion.  Buddism has The Five Precepts.

Often, when we do wrong we know it in our being – we don’t require a rule to tell us something is not right.  Yet, life presents many circumstances where were are forced to choose between the greater of goods and the lesser of evils.  Thus leaving hearts torn and spirits worn when we lack understanding. 

Discord is an invitation to be still and allow the warmth of light to melt the beauty of the frost in due time.

When what is before you is frosty and unclear and you are unsure of what lies beyond, be still and practice Asteya: non-stealing of yourself, others and Spirit, and allow the warmth of the request of faithful understanding and forgiveness work naturally, rather than with the heat of strained and unnecessary efforts trying to scrape away your frosted glass tying to clean your own slate.

Spring is a time for new beginnings, which is a good time to allow your slate to be melted clean. This way, complete forgiveness permeates through all, like the melted water seeping through the earth.

During my own yoga teacher training, each of my meditations ended in the visualization of frosted glass, with the words in my head to “become the glass.” Today, six months later, I saw the beautiful frosted glass – and had no desire to scrape it off because I knew the sun would eventually melt it away.

Discord is an invitation to be still and allow the warmth of light to melt the beauty of the frost in due time.  Namaste
