Dose of inspiration

Shared joy is double joy...
Swedish proverb 

Let's Celebrate America but let's not forget everyone else...

This Friday, July 4th, celebrate America and celebrate life. Celebrate your freedoms and meditate on freedom for all. Higher freedom. Inner freedom. Freedom from needing and freedom from struggle. Be free this Friday and everyday. Free from attachment and pain. Free from all that you know and don't know. Be free to be authentically you! Be free to love because you are love not because you are missing something or filling a void or being what you should be. This fourth of July stop shoulding all over yourself and let the sun shine in your face or the rain fall on your head. Experience, feel, trust, love, just be you. #onemerica #onelove #starsandstripes #thankasoldier #redwhiteblue #peaceandfireworks #merica #america #ourmerica

Core changes (I'm not talking flat tummies here)

There is a shift occurring. Tectonic plate shifting shit. Emotional, spiritual, physical tectonic shifting in me as me. I can feel, see and experience the shift. It's me and it's happening to me. Seeing and feeling and knowing this experience is beautiful and seeing the change in small things that are grand all in their own way is incredible. My sensitivity is awakening and my joy is becoming boundless. I feel as a ball rolling down an enormous hill, gathering and warming and preparing and yet treading lightly on this great and powerful earth. I'm so grateful for this awareness and for this experience that is mine, that is me. 

Happy hump day

Celebrate and crack your heart open today with some hump day heart openers. You'll be happy you did. I know I am.

2014 Get At It Update: May- Read a Novel

I loved May and am happy to report I successfully completed my "Read a Novel" task!!

I read the Namesake, Yoga Mala and I think something else but am having a memory moment where I am unable to recall....hmmmm, oh yea, The Fault in Our Stars (teen lit but still counts, and it was good).

Never fear, I am still reading and read Saltwater Buddha last week for my birthday! And started Bitter is the New Black and also The Science of Yoga.

I am madly in love with books all over again and currently obsessed with anything yoga, Buddhism, zen, surfing or paleo/primal/cooking stuffs!

Now it is June, approximately 90 degrees, I have a 17 year old (gasp!) and an 11 year old (double gasp!) and Kathleen and I are settling into this cohabitation thing (smile), I am eliminating the clutter in my life (it's terrifying and wonderful), and I spend my days loving where I am and embracing samsara. I'd be lying if I didn't admit I dream of surfing and the inner workings of my soul are elated with the joy of a 5 year old waiting for Christmas morning and I have Sept 10th circled on my calendar. What's that day you may ask? It will be my first meeting for Soul School and I am stoked!

Spread some joy, make someone smile today, make yourself laugh and look up!

Joy- the inner kind...

I'm filled with joy.
 It's bubbling inside of me and oozing out of my pores.

Happy Mother's Day

I celebrated Mother's Day with some quiet time. I also had a wonderful dinner with my sister and part of her family, my dad and Bash. Bailey was busy and Sebastian had plans on Sunday. K went to see her family, so I read. And read and relaxed and drank hot water and contemplated life on the couch and a couple hours at the grocery store. Part of me was sad because usually I am with lots of family for Mother's Day but then a huge part of me was relieved. Relieved to just be me and eat chocolate for lunch and enjoy life.
