I have an overwhelming feeling of gratitude. Everyday. It oozes out of my heart, into my blood stream, my arms and legs, out the top of my head and shoots down from my feet, deep into the ground of which I find myself always running on. I am even more grateful for the people around me that help serve others, that are raising families, that are working to keep our society flowing, that offer enlightening concepts, inventors, scientists, children and their energy, as well as their sweet and bright outlooks on life, talents on a streaming media platform to brighten up a routine day. I am grateful for my family, my children, the warm sunshine and my ability to wake up day after day and feel this way (though obstacles sometimes challenge my perception of my knowing gratitude). Actually, even though I do feel this much gratitude, I do still have to constantly face that critic in my head, day by day, and talk to her. I have to tell her that everything in our lives is put here to teach us something and we can use the tools around us to learn from it when the time is vibrationally right. It is a skill to kindly talk to that anxious and sometimes pessimistic internal self critic. Sometimes I am too tired to talk. Or listen.Take a Tour
“Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.” – Dalai LamaTake a Tour

“Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if THIS is all there is.”

Why they always look so serious in Yoga? You make serious face like this, you scare away good energy. To meditate, only you must smile. Smile with face, smile with mind, and good energy will come to you and clean away dirty energy. Even smile in your liver. Practice tonight at hotel. Not to hurry, not to try too hard. Too serious, you make you sick. You can calling the good energy with a smile.Take a Tour
Not just on Earth day or Thanksgiving or Christmas, but everyday. We should practice being kind and selfless everyday. Most every person operates on a level where they are independent; looking out for their own survival needs and sub-consciously creates a micro-bubble awareness for themselves, and the close knit of family/friends in their immediate circle. It takes much more effort to act and give of ones’ time, energy, belongings and intention to others for compassionate, benevolent, and simply a selfless notion of being kind and altruistic. Maybe this settle gesture makes us feel better about ourselves, helps us to connect with others on a positive vibrating level and gives us an empathetic point of view? More than those positive feelings and “pats on the back,” however, science has proven that acts of kindness and selflessness toward others and the environment around us equate to being happier, living longer, and better mental and physical overall health.Take a Tour
