Are you asking the right questions to create a life of balance?


Am i willing to extend the amount of time i spend each day feeling good and satisfied?

This natural sense of wellbeing not influenced by outside factors. This is the innate goodness that resides within our hearts field.

Am I willing to increase the amount of time that my whole life goes well?

Work relationships, creative outlets, this is the idea from yoga of a sattvic approach. Not too much and not too little. The willingness to take action and rest when needed. Creating an easeful life experience. When things just seem to happen effortlessly. I connect everything to digestion because it really is your ability to process and move on, not attaching to the easy of difficult but accepting them and continuing on. Just like you eat and you digest. You receive and then you process. It is the pulsation of nourishment and integration. How much nourishment are you willing to receive? And how can that nourishment open your capacity to receive more? The more you are open to receive, the more you have to give and share. 

Am I willing to feel good and experience ease all of the time?

No it’s not just wishful thinking. It is really opening yourself to receive the fullest amount of beauty from the natural world. This world is nourishing, if…… you allow yourself to receive the nourishment. 

This is the practice of going beyond what you believe is possible. Challenging your believed limitations. Opening up to the expansive unbound possibilities that are available to those willing to experience them.

The willingness for things to go well and feel good is not a safety hazard to you or anyone else. Yet its a very courageous act because it challenges you to break through your beliefs, tendencies and connects you deeply to your imagination. 

How can we relate to this? 

Look at space travel. It is now possible to buy a ticket and get onboard. This would have been inconceivable to our ancestors, just as they were stuck in the survival mechanisms of the brain. This was due to their environment and need to survive. But were not just surviving anymore, we aren’t stuck foraging for food and using the valuable energy keeping warm. 

If we even think that we believe it is possible, then we owe it to not only ourselves, but to our ancestors, friends, family and our shared world to try it out.  It is coming back and connecting the explorers mindset and opening yourself up to even the possibilities. Being curious about the tendencies of the mind to shut down after being held up and loved to its fullest capacity. 

So, how willing are you to experience life to it’s fullest?

Try it for one day. Open your mind to the willingness for receptivity. The openness to receive the support from the supportive and nourishing universe we are all connected to. Remember, curiosity for the possibilities and gratitude for the gifts of the natural world.
