looking back

Learning, and understanding may be gained by looking back.

Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards. Søren Kierkegaard

slow down

it’s a reminder – another way to say it practice pausing

what does it look like to practice everyday?

everything is practice – Periander

Everyday I have an opportunity to practice. For me it’s learning a language, practicing yoga, showing up in my painting studio or simply learning how to practice pausing.

I need to keep in mind what the definition of practice is – practice means,  training, rehearsal, repetition.

The question, what does it look like to practice everyday? The answer has to be show up, even when I don’t feel like it. I’m a practitioner.

hope along the path

let there be hope along the path – you don’t need a lot of light but just enough so you don’t feel like you’re stuck in darkness.

if you give people light, they will find their own way Dante Alighieri

Seek the wisdom that will untie your knot. Seek the path that demands your whole being. Rumi

the pain will fade

Sometimes it feels like our light has been covered up, when the hard moments of life, keep coming our way. Our job is to find the small moments of joy, and work on removing the rumble that has piled up within us.

And maybe, the pain will fade and our light will shine. That is my hope.

The only thing I know is this: I am full of wounds and still standing on my feet. Nikos Kazantzakis
