A brief word of Encouragement to you my beautiful friend;
Oh How often we forget this and accept the wrong-doers apology
WITHOUT remembering to especially watch their behavior. ..
Their follow on behaviors are the truth indicator of any sincere remorse, of their steps
to make amends, of their shift forward with what looks like they are “contributing”,
of their growth (or lack their of). ..
If you feel they are still showing up poorly or not showing up at all
... it is likely because that is true.
You are worthy - Never ever forget it !
Up Up Up beautiful people :o))).
Let's continue this wondrous journey in the spirit of love, reverence, reflection,
wellness in body, mind + soul, joy and progression.
May you be loved, May you be safe, May you be well.
My usual Xo - Whatever your version Ring it in, Ring it out. Ring it on.
Grateful I am for good, kind and beautiful people who truly show and share themselves.
I am grateful for those who with sincerity, grace, compassion & kindness - believe, respond, reciprocate, create and love - with towering degrees of consistent transparency, emotional intelligence and introspection - [without fear] deeply sharing the beauty of this wonderful life - right alongside with me. :o)
I am also Grateful for the others
For all revelations - of the stages along their own process of development. For realizing that their choices - whether based on any pound of flesh or fear - that their action or inaction - Is entirely reflective of their own internal challenges or effort - towards that addicting & deceptive tap dance for inner power & mastery.
Grateful I am to truly “see” and to have experienced them… I will always give thanks - for it is in recognizing them that I learn even more of the stages & the layers along my own journey and more of the beauty of self.
For even in those moments which lack kindness - they have produced in me a special/unique and dynamic [very well earned] dent, a dimple if you will .. this beautiful indentation - which continues to mold me into the purposeful person that is intentionally beautiful and true. A likeness quite similar to pillars supporting structure… oh vessel supporting substance. :o) I Thank-you.
It is through all experiences - the good and the bad - that we are beautifully molded. And through both, I am always inspired to give my best me - to live my best and in each moment my best life, to share with self and with others my highest good. And just like water - unpretentious movement in, out and around each process and all circumstances - as I continue to flow.
Yes - Gratitude is a happiness state… uhm, so again today as in any day - I remember this! Oh, ever grateful I am.
Come what may - In all that you think - in all that you do, I invite you (I challenge you, I dare you) I encourage you to keep the kind & the happy in every day. May you be safe, may you be loved, may you be well.
Happy Thanksgiving to you w/ my usual warmth - hugs + heart.
Out of the night that covers me,
Life by Yoga
Thanks for stopping by.
What students are saying...
"I attended Life by Yoga's classes in a past Harlem location, while vacationing in NYC. From the time I entered the space I was impressed. I can still remember how it felt just walking in - it was great... calming, very thought through, warm & inviting. The props provided were in good condition too. Hey it was my first time practicing yoga and while exploring plenty of yoga spots in NYC - I was told about Life by Yoga's special difference by a friend. During the classes I was walked through each pose in a very patient & compassionate way. They were attentive to my needs, and as well as to the needs of the others in the class.
As a novice - so many of the yoga stretches were way beyond my capabilities :o - but I was given modifications, specific to my body structure and at the end of class I left feeling challenged, refreshed, enlightened and spiritually activated.
So for my entire 6 week stay, I kept going back for more. You betcha'... every time I return to NYC, wherever they're located, I will absolutely be found attending Life by Yoga classes. Definitely one of New York City's best kept secrets" - Rodney V Payne.
