    Some Friendly Advice ~

    How to find peace of mind ~ in under 500 words


    “All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today.” ~Proverb

    Practice and patience are like inseparable twins that have the capacity to bring us great joy when in harmony—and great angst when they are not.

    Consider the phrase: “Practice and all is coming….”

    I didn’t realize the depth of this statement when I first read it in my Ashtanga yoga manual several years ago.

    Sri K Pattabhi Jois was the Yogi who said it repeatedly to all his students. And it is perfectly reasonable for one to assume he was referring to the daily practice of yoga.

    But one morning during my writing practice (my daily moving meditation) I realized the true essence of his statement.

    For as long as I can remember I have strived to know peace—that is peace while living in the ‘real’ world and freedom from my cluttered mind.

    We all do, don’t we? And I’m guessing that we all have some idea, whether through books or people of how we are supposed to achieve this. Self awareness, detachment, letting go of failure, hurt, pain, being present—the list goes on and on.

    Despite being fundamentally aware of what we need to do, why do we often fail to apply? Why are we all not at peace?

    At times we might achieve small bouts of contentment—and I believe as we get older we get better at it—but why should this be the case if we know now what we’re supposed to be doing?

    So here’s the realization, in all its simplicity:

    Practice and patience.

    Even peace of mind comes with daily practice and patience.

    Just realizing this will improve our daily state of mind, regardless of how old we are.

    We don’t need to think hard for examples to labor the point. To become great cooks we have to practice cooking—we have to master the recipes. Great athletes dedicate their lives to their sport. Yogis practice postures, singers exercise their voices. The same is true with what goes on in our heads.

    We have to constantly remind ourselves to let go of the pain, hurt, failure, whatever it might be that is causing distress and cluttering our minds.

    I say identify, resolve and let go constantly. Repeatedly. Daily.

    This is what I now do every day and particularly when stress, sadness or frustration comes knocking at my door.

    Let these random thoughts pass and if something needs to be done, do it. Otherwise, plan when you will get it done and deal with it at that necessary point. Then let it go. Let go of the thought and also the result and expectation tied to it.

    Do this with everything that causes you stress and don’t punish yourself when you can’t or struggle to process—patience, remember?

    I know it’s hard, but we can get better over time.

    by Ramaa Sharma

    Dear Friends~
    more often during these days of the quickening ~ i have to step back and reflect upon what lessons were learned?
    Today, i am again humbled by the smallness of my surface mind's reactions to the faults of my fellow spirit souls.

    "He who treads the Path in earnest
    Sees not the mistakes of the world;
    If we find fault with others
    We ourselves are also in the wrong.
    When other people are in the wrong, we should ignore it,
    For it is wrong for us to find fault.
    By getting rid of this habit of fault-finding
    We cut off a source of defilement.
    When neither hatred nor love disturb our mind
    Serenely we sleep."

    Buddhism~ Sutra of Hui Neng 2

    Did you ever think of me,
    As your best friend.
    Did I ever think of you,
    I'm not complaining.

    I never tried to feel.
    I never tried to feel.
    This vibration.
    I never tried to reach.
    I never tried to reach.
    Your eden.


    Your eden ~ Your eden


    Did I ever think of you,
    As my enemy.
    Did you ever think of me,
    I'm complaining.


    I never tried to feel.
    I never tried to feel.
    This vibration.
    I never tried to reach.
    I never tried to reach.
    Your eden.


    Your eden ~ Your eden


    I never tried to feel.
    Your eden
    I never tried to ...
    Your eden

    To adulate another leads only to heartbreak ~
    But loving another just for being ~ leads to one's own Divinity.
