• Lifestyle,  Who Am I

    Refuse to play small. Dare to dream big.

    So many of us have been raised to constantly assess risk, and run the other way at the smallest amount detected. We have been repeatedly warned about dreaming TOO big and warned against making decisions based solely on gut feelings. The safe and “responsible” way to live life is to finish school, get a job (don’t bother applying for those you are not fully qualified for, but take what is given to you and is with a stable company), buy a moderate house that needs work so you can build equity, don’t drown your children in gifts because that will teach them to be material in nature. Don’t overspend. Vacations…

    You are your breath

    You are not your thoughts. Detach from them. Let them be. Let them pass. You are, in fact, your breath. Be. Stay here. Flow in and out with yourself. With your breath. During my meditation this morning I was able to settle into a place where my thoughts were ships passing me by as I sat on dry land watching them float by. It was in this peaceful moment that I realized I am able to recognize each thought(ship) for exactly what it is. Just a thought.
