In life, take the attitude that everything
is already as it should be, just as it is,
and find fault with nothing,
but respond to everything naturally.
There is no need to identify yourself
as any particular person.
Just stay aware and conscious of your awareness
and witness the marvellousness of life.
Direct your energy into the loving, joyful experiences you are choosing; invest your energy in that which benefits the All, in Love. The returns are the change in the world you’ve been hoping for.
You can only come to the final recognition
that you are the Heart itself.
Heart and yourself are one reality.
That alone will end your quest
and give unending satisfaction to your heart.
Deep down, we know that birth is not a beginning, but a continuation. We acknowledge that death is not an ending, but a continuation. Our hearts know the truth: Life itself is eternal. Taking form in this human shape is but one experience we can have in the vastness of life, expressing itself.
“Who Am I?” We live our life in this inquiry.
There is great joy when we have the experience of this truth: We ARE the light of life. The light of life is who we truly are. When we accept and allow this truth, the light of life emanates forth from the center of our being, lighting the world.
This body that is born and grows and gets worn and weary – this body is a temporary suit we step into for these experiences that we call life. It is not *who* we are – and it is not meant to *limit* who we are. This body, and the consciousness that comes with it, provide a context for our experience of life.
And discovering who we are – beyond these bodies, beyond these thoughts and beliefs, beyond the personalities and self-concepts we have cultivated – remembering who we truly are, is the joyous reunion of Self to Source.
Sometimes the world just seems too cold!
Bring your awareness to your heart. Breathe in, deeply. Notice how you are feeling.
Does the world seem too cold? Breathe out, deeply.
On the next deep inhale, bring your image of the whole world into your heart. See, feel, imagine, experience your heart – and the world – filling with clear, bright, warm, golden light. Hold your breath for a few moments, and experience the light and warmth building in the heart of your being.
Exhale slowly. See, feel, imagine, experience every cell of your being, every living cell of the world, getting gently washed with the expanding golden light.
Repeat this deep breathing and visualization a few times. Then let your breathing return to its own pattern.
Smile gently into your heart, and move in this WARM golden light throughout the day.
Today’s Challenge: Rest in the Strength of the Space Between
Gently place your awareness into your heart. Breathing in deeply, see your heart filling in bright, sparkling light. Breathing out fullly, this light expands through every cell of your being. Breathing in, your heartlight grows ever brighter. Breathing out, your heartlight expands ever further.
Notice the space between your breaths – that moment of stillness between the in breath and the out breath. Between the out breath and the in breath. Let this stillness begin to build. Feel the deep rest, the limitlessness, of this space between. Allow your heart and soul to relax here, in this space between. Remain with this experience for a few moments.
Imagine your day unfolding, and experience yourself moving through this day, strong and steady in this stillness, no matter what comes up. With a full deep breath in and a full deep breath out: Step forth boldy into your day.
Today’s Challenge: Feel and experience gratitude for your ancestors.
We have not arrived here alone! These bodies we wear are the result of our ancestors’ dna. There is *much* that we inherit, programmed into this dna that has shaped itself into the “I” we think we are.
Whether or not you know/knew your biological ancestors – Whether or not you feel that you have/had good experiences with them – Today shine your heartlight on them.
Bring your awareness into your heart. Breathing in, see your heart filling in bright, sparkling light. Breathing out, this light expands through every cell of your Be-ing. Breathing in, your heartlight grows ever brighter. Breathing out, your heartlight expands.
Take a few moments in this light, and call forth your ancestors into your heart. Parents, grandparents – maybe even further back. Bring those who have come before you, into your heartlight. As you breathe, see them filling with light. Express your gratitude to those present in your heart, and wish them well. Allow yourself to remain with this experience for some time. If you encounter any resistance in this process, simply notice that.
Take another deep breath into your heart – experiencing gratitude for yourself. And express a grateful breath out.
Move in your heartlight throughout your day. Annnnd: Go!

Today’s Challenge: Be gentle with your heart, today.
Even as we find a sense of flow and the underlying joy of life, pains and sorrows and pressing concerns can loom large, and seem overwhelming. Sometimes, we try to ignore or “muscle through” feelings of being down, of being sad. Sometimes we wear our grief as a heavy mantle over our hearts, and trudge through our day just to get it done. Sometimes, we are just plain tired. Of. It. All.
Today, let’s give ourselves space to feel what we are feeling, and hold it all in love. Let’s find the strength of being gentle with ourselves.
Bring your awareness to your heart. Notice how you are feeling. Take a deep, slow breath into your heart. Experience your heart being filled and surrounded with gentle, loving, care. Slowly exhaling, allow yourself to relax into that gentle, loving, care.
Breathing in, your heart fills with bright, strong light, enfolding you in a gentle, loving embrace. Breathing out, every cell of your being is filled with this bright, strong light.
Rest here for a while –> Let yourself feel all your feels. And let it be ok. Let your loving heartlight hold you strong with loving, caring, nurturing,*sparkling* light.
Take another deep, strong, breath in. And a slow, gentle, breath out. Let your heartlight lift you up and carry you through your day.

Some days it seems like life just comes speeding at you with one crazy thing after another. Can you imagine truly going with the flow in a state of stillness on those days?

Notice the space between your breaths – that moment of stillness. Let this stillness begin to wash over you, fully immersing every aspect of your being.
Imagine your day unfolding, and experience yourself moving through this day simply floating in this stillness, no matter what events flow through.
With a full deep breath in and a full deep breath out: Move through your day in this flow of stillness.

Breathing in, your heartlight grows ever brighter. Breathing out, your heartlight expands.
Now visualize the entire earth in the center of this heartlight, filling with the light of love with every in breath. Becoming clearer and brighter with every out breath.
Tap into your sense of gratitude and appreciation, and expand this feeling into the earth and the life she sustains.
Move through your day in this flow of gratitude and appreciation.
Experience the moments of richness and beauty in this day.
Bring your awareness into your heart. Breathing in, see your heart filling with bright, sparkling light. Breathing out, this light expands through every cell of your Be-ing. Breathing in, your heartlight grows ever brighter. Breathing out, your heartlight expands.
Resting in this space of expansion, call to mind a time when you felt totally filled with amazement by the beauty of a moment in your life. Breathe in the scene, the full experience of that moment. Breathe this richness slowly, deeply, into the very heart center of every cell of your being. And, exhaling, slowly, this richness and beauty expands.
As you move through your day, see this day through this lense: see the richness and beauty of the simple moments all around you.
