Keep a calm and steady heart as you confront and attend to the difficulties that arise. There is no use in anger, bitterness or resentment. Negative emotions may arise, but let them go through you without attaching to them. Let them burn off so that you may get to the essence of the one great emotion, love. With love there is only the purest intent and the purest of ideals. Let love always guide you, even if love asks you to do difficult things, even if love asks you to face the bitterest truth. In the end, love will show you that there is nothing that surpasses it and that it is eternal.

Sending you love

You will know when it is time to make a change. A certain amount of uncomfortability will plague you. Your spirit will be restless and your mind will be unsettled. Your body may have something to say as well, letting you know that things are not well. The first step is to acknowledge that there is a problem. The second step is to embrace the need to change. And the third step is to begin the process by changing one thing at a time, one day at a time. With consistency, and attention to the process of change, your progress is assured.

Sending you love,

Maintain balance in mind, body and spirit, not too much, not too little but just enough of anything so that there are no imbalances or cravings. To stay in balance is often a tricky endeavor but well worth the effort. In balance the mind is appropriately calm and appropriately busy; the body is in good health, neither hungry nor craving, neither lazy nor overdoing; and the spirit is known and assimilated, neither neglected nor overpowering. In balance a sense of overall contentment reigns and nothing is too much, nothing is lacking, and nothing is desired. With balance comes just the right amount of energy, intuition, and spiritual insight. Seek balance in all things and grow satisfied yet alive, healthy and well, in all aspects of self.

Sending you love,

Relax your mind. Relax your body. Relax your hold on thinking you have to do everything. Relax the tension in your muscles, and then go deeper than that. From your toes to the top of your head, and everything in between, relax. Life is not out to destroy you but to support you. Life is not out to stop you but to push you. Life is not out to punish you but to encourage you. Life is full of lessons, but the biggest one may be to learn to just relax and wait for life to show you what comes next rather than thinking you have to have it all figured out ahead of time, or that you have to direct it. There may just be another approach you haven’t thought of. Maybe you just need to relax, let down your guard and just experience it. It might be that simple. Indeed, there may just be another way after all.

Sending you love,

Cultivate steadiness in all that you do, a calmness that is heart centered and indestructible, a focus that is unwavering. Learn to breathe yourself into a more solid, firm and yet flowing state so that you cannot be moved from your place of calm peacefulness no matter what comes to interrupt your daily life. Such steadiness in mind, body, and spirit will carry you well into a long life of adventure and change. It will help you to live a life of awareness, cultivating growth within yourself, while allowing for a true demeanor of kindness and compassion for all whom you encounter and all that surrounds you. Breathe.
