The Four Agreements June 9, 2012

As I was browsing through my Facebook page I found this post, and it just made sense to pass this message forward.  Taking the simplest actions in life can bring us the greatest peace.  I invite you to read the following Four Agreements, and if they resinate with you as the did with me……please pass them forward, and we will share together the message of being, or becoming our best possible selves.  Helping us to find the peace, and the greatness that already lies within.


The Four Agreements:

1. Be Impeccable With Your Word:

 Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in… the direction of truth and love.

2. Don’t Take Anything Personally:

 Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

3. Don’t Make Assumptions:

 Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

4. Always Do Your Best:

 Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.

Reflection on Today’s Yoga Practices at YOUYOGA March 8, 2012

Today’s classes were so enjoyable. We practiced “playing our edges” by facing challenges with kindness and grace. We also worked with a mindfulness of “Matrika Shakti”….defined as the power of the word.  Begin seeing obstacles as only challenges…..knowing that in-time with a loving consistency all things will unfold. Thank YOU Lakshmi Voelker for sharing this beautiful concept with us. May all of us carry this mind-set as we move through our day……seeking peace, harmony and bliss.
