BE A PIONEER: INVOKE NEW EXPERIENCE
"Like a bee seeking nectar, seek teachings everywhere. Like a deer, seek a quiet place to digest all that you have gathered." -Dzogchen Tantra
How do we open up? We start by saying to ourselves I choose LOVE. From there everything softens. Then say to yourself, I AM OPENING INTO ______.
“We all have unknown territory in our lives. It’s one thing when the unknown territory is the forest, the mountains or even the craziness of the city. But in our world of constant distraction, I wonder if the present moment is becoming a kind of unknown mysterious forest teeming with life, treasures and visions. For those who view the moment as exotic, unknown territory, let’s step back and chart the lay of the land.” Says David Romanelli in his new book Livin the Moment. I like everyone have wrestled with fear of the unknown of what comes next. And the more new and fresh the experience to me used to be the most scary. Then funny thing, the more I practiced yoga, tried new poses that were just crazy to think I could ever form I became more confident in trying new things in life. I opened up to the multitude of fresh discoveries just waiting out there. We are, as the sutras say, all evolving in the direction of happiness, that happiness includes trying new things. Having the experience and delighting in it rather than conquering it is what expands our happiness too. So open up, open out, take a risk and move into the unknown! You’ll be glad you did! Wishing you bold courage, Silvia
