How to Behold a Mountain

I had been travelling on a bus across Tibet for the past three days. We were supposed to fly, but the Chinese military closed the airport. A bus was the only option. I sat in silence for most of the journey staring out the window. What else could I do?

If this were a […]

Picking Up Dirt…

Freedom comes when we are not so easily impacted by what is happening around us. It is what is happening within us that matters most. In the past, when something got me down, I would be down for months. I also failed to acknowledge what brought me down and tried to push it away. […]

Less is More…

…and more does not always mean we are better off. As we move into November, Thanksgiving Day is around the corner followed by the holidays. Before we go crazy with overdoing everything, take some time to think about what the holidays mean to you. If you think it is about overcooking, overbaking, overeating, […]

Stop Using the Mind…

…to figure out the mind. Some things in life cannot be understood and sometimes we just have to surrender and say – Everything happens for a reason. This is especially true for those painful situations that do not make any sense. Remember – everyone is in our life for a reason, not everyone […]

Life is a Journey…

Not a destination. We choose to make it worthwhile or not. Along the journey there are turning points and we are faced with decisions. Sometimes we make the right decisions and other times we don’t. There are also others who join us on our journey. Each person we meet comes into our life for […]

What Goes Up…

Must come down. What comes around…goes around. You’ve heard these sayings before, but do you believe them to be true? Everything is moving, cyclical, and changing. We are naïve to think that anything stays the same. You are already a different person from when you first started to read this. You have new […]

What’s in Your Suitcase?

Have you ever noticed when you go on vacation and pack bags that you end up taking too many things that you never use or wear? For some reason, we like to carry all of our favorite items with us. We like to stuff it all in a suitcase to make sure we […]

Fortune Cookie Wisdom

‘You are what you think about all day long.’ So my fortune cookie told me. Let’s use a simple example that we can all relate to – the weather. When you think and say over and over that you are hot, of course you will be hot. Maybe you do feel hot, buy why […]

Everybody Put Your Hands Together…

Hands and their gestures are powerful ways to express emotions without saying a word. Many gestures date back to ancient times and today we often see the peace symbol, thumbs up, OK, high five, and on occasion the obscene middle finger. As a yoga instructor, there is one gesture that I do everyday. I […]

People walk in and out of our life for a reason…

Some stay for a long time. Others are there for only a few moments, days, or months. Regardless of the time, each person has something to share, to teach, to help us learn and grow. This even applies to those who have hurt us and who have broken our hearts. These people are […]

If you let yourself be impacted by everything that is happening around you…

…then your life will be taken over by situations you cannot control.

When you lose control then you lose power to make positive and healthful decisions. Your mind will be restless worrying about what someone said. You will never get to know your true self. You will mindlessly eat and drink whatever is in front […]
