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. What a disgrace it is for man to grow old without ever seeing the beauty and strength for which the body is capable. – Socrates A very simple first step to knowing thyself is: List your five strengths and five weaknesses Ignorance is bliss, until you have tasted bliss, then the rest is just ignorance – Christopher Rivas Some …

Dream On Dreamer

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 …

Water benefits us in many different ways, and each of them is important to enable our bodies to be their best.

9 Keys to Success

9 Keys to Success

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

Many a time my head failed me, my hands failed me, my feet failed me, but, thank God, my heart never failed me. Men and women succeed because they take pains to succeed. Industry and patience are almost genius; and successful people are often more distinguished for resolution and perseverance than for unusual gifts. They make determination and unity of purpose supply the place of ability. Success is the reward of those who “spurn delights and live laborious days.” We learn to do things by doing them. One of the great secrets of success is “pegging away.” No disappointment must discourage, and a run back must often be allowed, in order to take …

It’s Time To Put Technology Back In Its Place

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

It’s Time To Put Technology Back In Its Place  Most everyone seems to agree that life is getting busier, crazier, and more frantic with each passing day. We’re bombarded by more information than we know how to process—news, ads, commercials, blogs, tweets, music, pics, and more ads. Crazier still is that we have more devices, programs, and apps than ever before to make life easier. And unquestionably these new innovations help make our lives better. We can text with close friends halfway around the world and let them know we’re loving them. We can share pictures of our daughter’s birthday party with relatives thousands of miles away. We can check our …

I’m Talking About Dedication

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

I’m Talking About Dedication I’m not talking about singing songs; I’m talking about the dedication of our entire beings to Life’s service and our short time on it. It goes something like this: Today I dedicate my mind to you. I want to think on things that are good, right, pure, and excellent. I want to take captive any thoughts that aren’t true. Today, I dedicate my eyes to you. I want to see others the way you see them. I want to view my circumstances through the lens of hope and faith. I want to look at life as one who is confident that you are with me. Today, …

I'll Do Whatever It Takes

Are You Willing To Do Whatever It Takes To Be Free

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

I’ll Do Whatever It Takes! Sounds kind of drastic, doesn’t it? Before you starting thinking that we are advocating self-mutilation, keep in mind that this was spoken as part of a broader message about the true nature of righteousness. I’m making the point that the eternal consequences of doing harm to others and self are real enough that we should be willing to take radical, drastic action to avoid or remove anything that causes us to stumble. What action may be required in your case? If you are not stumbling, maybe nothing. If the Internet is a stumbling block for you, are you willing to get offline, or give up your smartphone for …

When You Help Others Grow, You Grow It is wired so that when you help other people grow, you grow. You never grow faster than when you’re in fellowship with other believers and encouraging each other’s commitment to a full, abundant, blissful life.

Have you noticed that it’s always easier to work out when you’re working with somebody else? You need someone to walk alongside side you through your journey of faith, and you need to make the same commitment to other people. Nothing affects your life more than your commitments. …

Living Large

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

Living Large “We didn’t fence you in. The smallness you feel comes from within you. Your lives aren’t small, but you’re living them in a small way. I’m speaking as plainly as I can and with great affection. Open up your lives. Live openly and expansively!” In other words, live compassionately, graciously and all-encompassing. “Smallness” comes from within us, and not from life, has nothing to do with life. When our mind can’t comprehend the miraculous thing that is the miracle of life, allowing grace, bliss, and power to awe us, we criticize or dismiss what we don’t understand and shy away from the unknown. Rules, limits, regulations, and discipline …
