The journey of 1000 miles begins with one step

Easter is a time of hope, renewal and new beginnings
 

Over the holiday I attended a level 2 Kundalini teacher training in a monastery near Kathmandu.  Rising at 0400 each day for practice and chanting, listening to the monks and living a simple life is therapeutic on many levels.  Now I am doing one hour of an assigned meditation every day for 90 consecutive days; miss a day, start over.  This will require discipline, determination and action. Yet doing so will provide insights and transformation as well as a sense of accomplishment. 

 “The beginning is the most important part of the work.” – Plato

 Today was day 1. After all, what is not started today is never finished tomorrow. Johann van Goethe

I invite you to join me in this journey of self renewal and growth.  For like the flowers that bloom through the snow, we too can rise above challenges to find clarity so i close my eyes to old ends and open my eyes to new beginnings. anon

Hindsight is always 2020

Wayne Dyer, author and acknowledged expert on personal development has written that every step of our life journey is a teaching opportunity.  He says he was not  aware of all of the future implications of these early experiences but with the clarity of hindsight he knows that every single challenge and situation together defined the patchwork of his life. For which he is grateful.

In the holiday season I invite you to reflect on your own personal journey.  Are you consciously living to fulfill your purpose?  It is impossible to change what has already past, but it is not too late to rewrite the future. What are you waiting for?
