Peace Inside & Out

Little Lake close to home

My dear Yogis and Yoginis,

I have been contemplating what would be a good theme to start the year with. Signs from different sides have kept on showing up and pointing to

With wars being still very present it doesn’t seem unusual, but
messages from within the line of wellbeing and leadership as well.

Here an Affirmation from wonderful Luise L. Hay
“The more peaceful I am inside, the more peace I have to share with others. Love is around every corner, and joy fills my entire world.”

~ ~ ~ ~ ~
As most of you know, I have been working a lot with my dog the last couple months to create a stronger bond etc. Yesterday I opened up one of these advertisements for training animals I have seen plenty of time before, called Trust Technique. Sure enough the base of this is to be so much at peace yourself that it transfers to the animal. No surprise that it is working also with people and it all starts with oneself!

“Peace can only exist if we have complete security, both outwardly and inwardly, psychologically and environmentally. We all want security, even the greatest scientist and the poorest, very uneducated villager – all of us want security.
Like every animal, every living thing needs security.
And apparently we don’t have security. We have sought it in religions, in beliefs, in ideologies, in some form of authority; followed them, and yet we remain separate. We are asking, is that one of the basic causes why human beings, thinking they are separate, isolated entities, each one seeking his own particular form of security, must inevitably come into conflict with others who are also seeking their own particular form of security?

If you examine without any bias, without any tradition, if your brain is eager to find out whether it is possible to live in this world with
complete freedom and peace and therefore with order. One has to put this question. You may be a great scientist, a great painter, a marvellous poet, like Keats, but the scientist, the poet, the painter have their own sorrow, pain, anxiety like the rest of us. And as long as we think we are separate, conflict must exist – between the Arab and the Jew, as is happening in Beirut, between the black and the white, between the Muslim and the rest of the world. So please, consider this question
seriously – exercise our brains, not accept.

And if that is one of the causes of war, one of the causes of
conflict between human beings, this fallacy that each one of us is
entirely different, we are questioning that very thing. And if we are not, then we are the rest of mankind. You are the rest of mankind. With that goes tremendous responsibility which you may not like to have. We like to avoid responsibility.

~ Krishna Murti
(Excerpts out of: Only in peace can the human mind be free – 1983)

We all have felt a togetherness in our little global yoga community. In that safe space we are able to keep on growing together and strengthen it as well as finding our inner grounding and security.

Love & Gratitude IV

My dear Yogis and Yoginis,

“Acknowledging the good you have already in your life is the
foundation for all abundance”
~ Eckhart Tolle

An other personal story of mine.
There is a saying I heard about 20 years ago for the first time:
“If you think you are enlightened, pay your family a visit”
I always felt like it is spot on.

I don’t know if you ever had a close person, like boyfriend/girlfriend or husband/wife, tell you about some of your character trades that are irritating to them or bothering them?
If you are like me, you hear it and somewhat understand what he/she is saying, but then it is really hard to catch yourself and change it.

Well, I had an enlightening moment when my sister was visiting me recently.
I think it is ages ago since I have spend a whole week only with my sister. This one-on-one time made me realize that we really grew up with the same parents (lol). Some things seem to be ingrained in us and for me it was like looking into a mirror. Finally I could see clearly what the close person in my life meant all this time!
What can I say, experiencing the same behavior by my sister, made me now super aware and I will be able to change for sure 🙂
As shocking as it was for me at first, I am very grateful for this
learning experience!

I read this one recently and thought it is a good one for New Year Celebration.

“Gratitude is the wine for the soul.
Go on. Get drunk.”
~ Rumi

Love & Gratitude III

My dear Yogis and Yoginis,

this the holiday season is about love. So much is written, sung and done in the name of love and at the same time so complex and often misunderstood.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

“You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”
~ Buddha

“The only thing we never get enough of is love; and the only thing we never give enough of is love.”
~ Henry Miller

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”
~ Lao Tzu

“Love does not dominate; it cultivates.”
~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“What we have once enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.”
~ Helen Keller

“Gratitude is one of the strongest and most transformative states of being. It shifts your prospective from lack to abundance and allows you to focus on the good in your life, which in turn pulls more
goodness into your reality.”
~ unknown

Love & Gratitude II

My dear Yogis and Yoginis,

I was looking for a variety of Love and Gratitude quotes. Hoping that each one of you will be able to find at least one that is inspiring to you or you can connect with.

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
~ Albert Einstein

“It’s not happiness that brings us gratitude. It’s the gratitude that brings us happiness.”
~ Jeremiah Say

“Love is the ability and willingness to allow those that you care for to be what they choose for themselves without any insistence that they satisfy you.”
~ Wayne Dyer

“The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much and forgetting that you are special too.”
~ Ernest Hemmingway

“When you are grateful fear disappears and abundance appears.”
~ Toni Robbins

“Gratitude is when memory is stored in the heart and not in the mind.”
~ Lionel Hampton

Love & Gratitude


My dear Yogis and Yoginis,

“When you arise in the morning,
think of what a precious privilege it is
to be alive,
to breathe,
to think,
to enjoy,
to love”
~ Marcus Aurelius

For most of us the month of December presents itself as a time where we feel and want to express our love and gratitude to our loved ones. It is the time to make peace with the people around us.
But what if you are not able to express it due to unresolved or not solvable issues in a relationship?

For my part I believe that if you can make peace within yourself about a situation with a person, one can still extend gratitude to him/her on an energetic level (thought and feeling) without needing to express it

Here a very personal story.
Very early on in life I realized already that it doesn’t have to be your own family that unconditionally loves you and you feel love for.
After being emotionally hurt over and over again, there is still that feeling of gratitude for my existence that nevertheless will remain and will be cherished by me. Communication never has been fruitful with my parents and extended times of silence between us are also not
Sending that heartfelt energy out and be at peace with what is, is all that I can do. It has been a long process, but well worth it to move
beyond trying, bending backwards, guilt and struggle.

I don’t know if you have people in your life where you feel like you at the ropes end with communication and trying to change things. There is no need to suffer, because of it. I think it is important to find clarity within oneself, send the “good vibes” out there, and maybe in time and space something will shift inside that other person.

This month I decided to share different thoughts and inspiration of love and gratitude on my blog.

“Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
~ Melody Beattie
