August & Mondays

Posted on August 1, 2016 at 10:11 AM Comments comments (59)
Happy August & Happy Monday!

I was musing about time and it's effects our thoughts and actions. I do enjoy summer the most and long for 2 months of July. When August arrives, the sunlight is diminishing on the side of the planet I live on.
Right! I live on a planet that has been a part of a whole universe that time doesn't apply to; or does it?! 
I love to ask these "koans" because it helps clean the mind of the attachment of time and the dreaded word deadline
As a mostly energetic being (only 1/5 physical) I am as timeless as the Universe and free to release suffering, even the minor suffering of keeping up with schedules, days of the week, months, get the idea?

I choose to take time today to enjoy the first Monday Of August 2016. I may not see another, so i will enjoy the bittersweetness of moving through the day and Month of August with mindful appreciation. To be present is to be at one's highest potential. 
Even now as I write this contemplative Blog, in the background I can hear my College Junior enjoying cartoons on one of her last lazy days of summer break at home. That fills me with joy. To just be and enjoy! That is the best use of time.
Love your life! Share your Love!

Refresh Your Monday with Meditation

Today happens to be a Monday, if you have to pay attention to time.
Today was a Monday that I got intuition about last Thursday. "Make space for helping some one in need Monday".
Well, the mind moving to and fro through time is quite a lovely human/superhuman experience. Sure enough, I made the space for the task to be there from a place of love and mindfulness. I fulfilled the task and set course from the view point of going with the flow. Listening to your inner voice gets easier with meditation. You just get better at listening. Listening. Listening. Listening to breath...and the power of letting go. 

We are mostly energy, only 1/5 physical. That 1/5 physical is miraculous. Tapping into the rest of your energetic bodies makes the physical experience vastly expanded and calm. All you need is 3 minutes a day to start. Working to 20 minutes is a miraculous practice. 

You just need to be willing. The rest will come to you. Finding a mindfulness practice makes your "being here now" more calm, joy filled and peaceful.

You have the ability; everyone does. There are"no others". Make your peace anytime with a daily meditation practice. Monday is a perfect day to let go of old thinking, and take time to feel good watching your breath and being still.
Enjoy the path, you're not walking alone. 
May all be peaceful

Yoga4Sobriety Comes To Long Island

Peaceful Greetings and Welcome:

This is my first blog. Why not sooner? 
Erroneous thinking; I didn't value my voice on the web, but I've had a change of heart because I care so much about the subject of recovery. No one is untouched by addiction. You have direct experience yourself or experience witnessing friends and loved ones either in the struggle to function or to recover.

I've seen lots of people come to yoga, meditation or mindfulness practices to get and stay sober. There was always a missing ingredient in general public classes. Either the style was a misfit, missing cues on the breathing or the language of the cuing of the poses didn't hit the mark. This is important because it is due to enjoyable class experience that a practitioner will start a daily practice at home. That is where the real magic happens, and it is real. Positive lifestyle changes are magic. Drama falls away, clarity becomes a strong skill & choosing from love instead of fear is empowering!
Certainly a daily yoga practice brings one to a spiritual practice whether you realize it or not. Once you do realize the power of your spirit, it is a wonder to manage. Our thoughts become slower, more pure, and then the chance to make positive lifestyle changes become grounded on a cellular level and that is profound and noble. A strong teacher and like minded community are needed in a personal practice.

Learning the Chakra/Energy system of the body while combining the simple powerful language of recovery is a liberating enjoyable experience. To feel the specific purpose of the Yoga Asanam (poses) relating to grounding the concepts of non-harming & the responsibility of the 12 Steps is empowering and liberating! It is necessary to have a practice that integrates your intentions with your actions.

We are all doing Karma yoga. What if were better? More positive? Less harmful? What if you were more concerned with being kind than being right? What if you let your guilt, shame and anger go?!
Than what would life become???
We all need love, kindness and food for our souls to awaken to the life we would like.
Walk in the light. Love your Life, share your love!
Peace 2 All.
