“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
This is a Buddhist Metta chant which is often repeated at the end of a session of meditation. I find it to be calming and joy-producing. I invite you to say this once in the morning as you wake, once in the middle of the day and once again at night.
May all beings be happy
May all beings be at peace
May all beings be free from suffering
May all beings awaken to the light of their true nature
Wishing peace, joy, love, laughter and light for all at this holiday time and always!!
I’ve decided to re-post this amazing article from MindBodyGreen about Yoga & Recovery that a friend of mine sent me recently. Enjoy!! (and look for a new blog soon regarding the differences between concentration and insight meditation). Blessings and peace to all!!
WATCH THE VIDEO ON YOUTUBE How Therapy Helps Your Art and Your Acting
“…When you work with your tortured soul and you learn to integrate all of those pieces into your whole being, you don’t lose what has happened to you, you don’t lose what you have experienced in your life, but you are better able to look at your life experiences without fear or anxiety and then use them in your art. So when you clear up your tortured soul mess, put things into their proper places and integrate them into your whole being, you are then able to energetically access your gut–the deep wellspring of human emotional understanding–as well as use your heart and your soul and all of your lifetime experiences to create the most compelling performance or the most compelling piece of art you can.”
