As the sun illuminates the moon and the stars, so let us illuminate one another.

We are here to take care of each other. To do so, we must first take care of ourself.

~Thich Nhat Han.

Do you have the patience to wait…until the mud settles and the water is clear, until the right action occurs on its own?

~Lao Tsu

These are the things that jumped into my mind this morning as I sat and set my intentions for today—what I intend to feel, do, let God take care of.

Some days are much clearer in purpose than others.

Other days, I’m tired, distracted, feeling overwhelmed.

What brings me back to center is sitting quietly or going for a walk in the woods with Hera, my beautiful Golden Retriever.  

And when I feel I have time for neither of these, when my day is spinning and I get lost in the spinning, I remind myself that taking a slow, deep breath can be my personal retreat.

And can reset me on my path of remembering, “I have all the time in the world.”

When I look at these words posted above, my life seems to come down to a few things:  letting go of the need to control (Lao Tsu), believing that we’re here for each other and that part of that is being here for ourself (THN) and the light that is me honors the light that is you (Anon.).

These three thoughts seem to slow my rambling mind.

I hope you find comfort, ease, peace, inspiration in them as well, and will join me in letting go of the need to control, in committing to loving yourself and others, and in seeing the light in others through your light…

Namaste. This is the word used throughout the Himalayan Mountains as the way to say hello and good-bye.  It means the light that is me honors the light that is you.

What a beautiful to say hello and good-bye!

Blessings to you and yours today and always.

Come say hello on Facebook! I have set up a new page for my work with MS Yoga.  It’s here!

Please share my blog with folks you care about who you think would enjoy!

Looking for a lovely gift?  I published my first book of Prayer Poems in 2014.  I still read it almost daily, amazed that I put these things together and grateful for the Muse that led me to do so!  (I think the Angels had a lot to do with it too.!) You can buy it on Amazon.
