This is one of my all time favorite travel quotes, because I feel like it sums up why I seek. For me, the ultimate goal is to continually have new eyes, to see the world in a new way, to gain new perspectives. Sometimes, travel is the experience that gives you those new eyes, but there are also so many stops along the path to discovery. Books, classes, a meaningful conversation, can all be experiences that crack us open to view the world in a new way. Sorry for the repeat of two quotes in one week, but this is a good one. We will be in full swing at the Wanderlust Yoga Festival by the time this post goes live and hope to return with new eyes! Love to you all. Happy Weekend!
I love this quote. We all go through dark periods in life. We all have darkness within us, each one of us, no matter how much light we have too have at least a little dark. Even the earth experiences light everyday. A certain darkness is needed to see the stars. A certain darkness is needed for us to grow, to appreciate the light, and only specific beauty can be seen in darkness. Next time you are going through a dark period think of this quote. Happy Weekend !
What a lovely thought. There are no wrong turns in life because every turn is part of our path. Every turn, especially the unexpected ones, contribute to our soul's evolution, to our own personal growth, wisdom, and experience. It is easy to get caught up in trying to make the 'right' decision, sometimes so much so, that we become paralyzed to move forward. Remember this quote when you are feeling fear or despair. Every choice, every experience is there to contribute to our own evolution if we allow ourselves to learn from the experience. Happy Weekend!
I wish we could all see the light of our own being. What would we do differently? How would our thoughts shift, how we treated our bodies shift? Even if you can only remember for a moment the light of your own being, do it now. You are wonderful. Your light can illuminate the darkness we all sometimes find ourselves in. Don't forget that. Remember this quote the next time you feel alone, or lonely, or in a dark place. Happy Weekend!
There are many things that unite us but one of those things is the fact that we all suffer. We are all working on something. We are all being shaped by hardships, fears, stressors, by overcoming obstacles. We are all forging ourselves, striving to become better than we are. Whether we are conscious of it or not, we want better. We want to be better. We want to figure out life's uncertainties. We want to find our home, our tribe, our place in the world. We are placed in others' paths to help them evolve and they are placed in our path to help us evolve. We are all just walking each other home. Remember that the next time someone flips you off at an intersection. Have compassion for others. Have compassion for yourself. We are all just trying to find our way in this world. We are all just walking each other home. I'm sending love to all of you as I type this. Happy Weekend!
Evolution knows what it's doing. If we do it right, we can live in a mutually beneficial symbiotic relationship with nature. It's not a coincidence that we are drawn to mountains, beaches, majestic views, the smells of pine trees, the sunlight in the early morning, and the feel of a cool breeze on a hot day...What if the earth is drawn to us in a similar way? Rumi says "what you seek is seeking you". What if the very fact that we love nature, means that nature loves us? Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet, and the winds long to play with your hair. Happy Weekend!
This was one of the many little reminders in Tulum to live a happy, mindful life. It really is true though. So often, in western culture we think of happiness as a destination, a place to arrive to or a goal to be achieved. We think if we could just get (fill in the blank) then we would be happy, but that day never comes. Happiness can only be achieved in the present. It's a method of travel in life. If you can think of happiness this way, it feels more attainable in the moment (hint: gratitude is a great way to cultivate happiness in the present). Go forth and travel through this weekend on the wings of happiness. Happy weekend!
I hope you have days where you fall in love with being alive. I hope you have days where your doubts are quieted, your fears put to bed. I hope you have days where you feel connected with the magic of this life, the undercurrent of love, and beauty of this moment. Happy Weekend!
All that we do is for the journey within. We travel, we take vacations to change our internal energy, to learn about ourselves, to transform. The only real journey is the one within. The external journey is simply the cocoon for the internal evolution to happen. Enjoy the journey that is this life, learn lessons along the way, become better, spread love. Happy Weekend!
What if all of life is meant to help us love, love better and love fuller? Many seemingly bad situations turn around when you shift your goal towards love. Money, power, success, all fall away when the focus is shifted towards the heart. Strive towards your dreams but don't sacrifice love along the way. Happy Weekend!
