To Many People Want To Figure It Out

To Many People Want To Figure It Out

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

To many people want to figure it out. They are waiting for the “right” moment. “For this to fall into place”, “only when this happens”, “once this happens, this will happen then this…” Just do something. Just start. And then guess what, life and that project that thing you just did will show you what you need to do next, all that thinking, you won’t have to do it because you’ll be doing. Stop figuring it out and start doing it. We don’t have to know “how’s”. How’s are revealed. How’s are what people who aren’t doing study. How’s are great, but they’re usually a map of someone else how’s. …

Stop Chasing It

Stop Chasing It

by in General, Moving & Eating.

Stop chasing it. Just stop. Stop reaching and grasping. Stop the wanting, like all that reaching and wanting is gonna make it happen, it’s not. Your grasping for air. Your talking. Show me something you can actually do. Nor will that thing do what your imagination thinks it will do. That thing is small, that thing is keeping you blind, that think you don’t have is not letting you see and use what you do have. So stop chasing. Just stop and see that you got some beautiful tools at your disposal right here right now.   This is a home for all things related to maximizing ones life. Join us.

If I Give Up, Then Mankind Will Lose It's Storyteller

If I Give Up, Then Mankind Will Lose It’s Storyteller

by in Moving & Eating.

Give up? If I give up, then mankind will lose its storyteller. And if mankind loses its storyteller, then it will lose its childhood. Men, women, and children will look for me – me, their storyteller, their bard, their choirmaster – because they need me more than anything in the world. To show them the veins of leaves, and the houses within houses. To speak of liberation. Story is a device to free us from wherever we are stuck. I have to liberate them. I have to tell them, “You’ve been whole form the very beginning! You’ve been okay since day one. Big mistake to become whole again. Why would …

In The Noisy Confusion Of Life, Keep Peace In Your Soul

In The Noisy Confusion Of Life, Keep Peace In Your Soul

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing …

It's Dark Because You Are Trying Too Hard

It’s Dark Because You Are Trying Too Hard

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. To think, I was so preposterously serious in those days. Lightly, lightly – it’s the best advice ever given me. Lightly, lightly. So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly my darling, lightly… Aldous Huxley Island   Interested in Mindfulness, Coaching, A healthier Happier You? – Work with …

4 Essentials To A Succesful Practice

4 Essentials To A Succesful Practice

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

“I do whatever works and change it when it no longer works.” – Thich Nhat Hanh 1. Don’t make a rigid structure and then chastise yourself for not living up to it. If we want a practice to be in our life, a practice that we are implementing for health, wellness, happiness, a practice for less suffering; we must not set up rules and conditions that cause us more suffering or any suffering when we don’t stick to them. Life changes, always, go with the flow. 2. Structure is a good thing. It is significantly easier to return to something solid rather than somethign floating around in space. Structure can help …

Your Attitude Is Making You Sick

Your Attitude Is Making You Sick

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Generally speaking, physical and mental health are based upon positive attitudes, where as ill health, both physical and mental, is associated with such negative attitudes as resentment, jealousy, hostility, self-pity, fear, anxiety, etc. In psychoanalysis, positive attitudes are called welfare emotions, and the negative-ones are called emergency emotions. Unless the basic attitude that is causing the energy and balances is corrected, all the chiropractic and acupuncture and reflexology mean nothing because the illness will return. You want to get better, you want to get stronger, you want stop suffering? You want to go where you need to go? Literally, just bring the body to the meeting. If you really expose yourself …

Let’s Get Honest People

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Let’s get honest about who we are. What are our strengths, and what are our weaknesses? What is holding us back and what is propelling us forward? How well do we know ourselves? By knowing who we are and why we do what we do, can we suffer less? YES, yes we can.

My Personal Declaration

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Who are you? What do you stand for? What’s your dream? What type of legacy do you want to create? How can we become great together? We all need to declare our truth. We all need to know our truth and own our truth. We all need to be reminded of the things we stand for, fight for and believe in. We need to be reminded because it’s to easy to be tested, too easy to forget, too easy to give into fear. Here is My Personal Declaration: Have faith and trust, know the nothing can be forced.

The Trouble With Teachers

The Trouble With Teachers

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

I think the Buddha knew a thing or two about human nature. In particular I think he was wary of the mischief that can come from uneven relationships, in which one person has considerably more power than another, such as in the relationship between a teacher and student. One of the more significant things he did before passing away was appoint no successor, saying “What I have taught and explained to you as the teaching (dhamma) and the practice (vinaya) will, at my passing, be your teacher” (Digha Nikaya 16.6). This is only one version of the story, of course, and many Buddhist traditions are built around the existence of …

Life Isn’t Built With Tips

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Life Isn’t Built With Tips  Someone asked me recently if I had any tips for remaining calm and adapting to change. I asked him, “How can I get fit and strong without exercising?” I don’t think he liked my answer very much. What is easy to understand is what is hard. We don’t need tips. We need patience. Rome wasn’t built in a day. neither is calm. Rome wasn’t built with tips. Life isn’t built with tips. It doesn’t really matter how happy we are. Life reveals itself in time. It doesn’t really matter how happy we are, and how fast we can find this thing called “happiness”… Diets to happiness and …

5 Interviews For An Inspirational Pick Me Up

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Lately we’ve been going mad trying to connect and interview with as many LifestyleDeziners as possible. Those who are making it happen, their way, living a life by their Dezine! Those who go to bed exhausted knowing they did exactly what they were intended to do. Those who used their minds, hearts, and souls to their highest capabilities, and waking up full of Enthusiasm (The God Within), ready to do it all over again!!! What makes them credible? They are each completely and utterly in love with life. They know this life is inherently aa thing worth living and experiencing. They each have a unique approach, but overall, they are …

My Life Is Not A Self Improvement Project

My Life Is Not A Self Improvement Project

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

My life is not a self improvement project “…We leave our homeland, our property and our friends. We give up the familiar ground that supports our ego, admit the helplessness of ego to control its world and secure itself. We give up our clingings to superiority and self-preservation…It means giving up searching for a home, becoming a refugee, a lonely person who must depend on himself…Fundamentally, no one can help us. If we seek to relieve our loneliness, we will be distracted from the path. Instead, we must make a relationship with loneliness until it becomes aloneness.” ― Chögyam Trungpa, The Myth of Freedom and the Way of Meditation Get …

THE NAKED TRUTH Truth went down to a stream one day and undressed for a cool refreshing swim.
