Inner Journey: LIVE IN RELAXATION

“It would be glorious to see mankind at leisure for once. It is nothing but work, work, work.”
— Henry David Thoreau

Is relaxation possible only when we’re not working? No. With awareness and practice, we can be relaxed no matter what we are doing. In fact, when we work in a relaxed state, our productivity increases as our effort decreases.

For true relaxation, we need to connect with our bodies — to consciously and intentionally become aware of tension and release it.

“Anxiety breaks a man’s backbone.”
— Hebrew proverb

“Don’t hurry, don’t worry. You’re only here for a short visit. So be sure to stop and smell the flowers.”
— Walter Hagen

A Note from the Universe

Oh, how I love the morning dew on my face, the midday sun on my skin, and the fragrance of jasmine wafting at twilight. The sight of dragonflies darting, the sound of owls “hoo-hooing,” and the infinite perfection conveyed by all my physical senses at every moment of every day, even now.

Thanks because if it weren’t for you, such ecstasies I would never know.

Work that body,

The Universe

Daily Wisdom
April 1, 2021

Regret
“The greater part of what my neighbors call good I believe in my soul to be bad, and if I regret anything it is very likely to be my good behavior. What demon possessed me that I behaved so well?”

-Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)


It’s all a matter of our own unique perspective. No one can make us regret anything. We have our own internal compass which lets us know if we’ve gone off course. There is always pressure from society, family, peers and associates to act a certain way or to live up to certain expectations. But the only one we answer to in the end is ourselves. We decide what behavior is “regrettable” or not

Daily Tarot: The Fool

The day may be full of confusion but you don’t have to go through it naively and unaware of what’s happening around you. It’s not a good day to flirt with taking silly risks, some of which might turn out to be semi-dangerous or costly. You may be too hyper to want to play it safe, but at least make an effort to not be naïve or irresponsible
