I am forever grateful to the masters, gurus and teachers that every day remind us of our true nature which is peace, love and joy and that encourage us to transcend the games and tricks of the mind.
In my Yoga classes, I usually read quotes or passages from books that have deeply touched me and helped me in my journey. From now on, I will start sharing them on my website. If they resonate deep within you, please share them with the world!
Just show up, as you are. You don't have to look or feel great. You don't have to be prepared for each challenge or know all the hows of every situation. You don't have to be fearless, or have all the answers, or be 100% ready. Nobody is any of these things. Nobody ever was. It's not about being perfect, at all. You just have to show up, as you are, despite all the objections and insecurities of your mind, despite each and every fear that threatens to hold you back, despite the limitations and criticisms others will place on you. To hell with it all. This is your life, your journey, your adventure, and all it's asking of you is to show up for it, as you are. That's enough. That's more than enough. That's everything."

…such is the nature of all thoughts and sensations, they come and go. Your previous problems seemed equally as pressing and important in their time as your current problem now does, but they are no more, absent from the present by the force of nature. If such is the nature of thoughts and feelings, surely your present difficulties share the same destiny. Why worry about it? All these movements are witnessed in you and by you as pure awareness. Stay as That!
