2. “I am sorry.”
3. “I don’t know.”
4. “I forgot.”

6. “I love you.”

Sometimes what is a small gesture of kindness on our part can make a world of difference to someone else.  It is my belief that within the yama of ahimsa (yogic moral guideline of non-violence) one will find compassion, kindness and generosity.  By practicing ahimsa in all it’s many depths and manifestations the world not only becomes a better place but our lives grow fuller and more joyful.

Summer Break

In the last two years I have posted over 300 posts and you have probably heard plenty from me for awhile ;). I won’t be able to stay away for long, but just wanted to keep my subscribers in the loop. I hope you all get to enjoy plenty of summer sunshine. You will hear from me again in the not to far future. Nameste

Rough Edges

I don’t believe that we can hold ourselves or another to a promise of being perfect. Even though we aspire to learn and grow, imperfections will continue to arise. All I can do is sincerely commit to learn from whatever I encounter along the way. Like stones in a stream that are smoothed over the years by the flowing torrent, I will dwell in the stream of life and invite it to smooth my rough edges.
