Spirit Library: This Isn’t Who I Am, Is It? (a message from Brenda Hoffman)
Your need to be right is popping up in the most unusual places. You have worked diligently for months or even decades to create a special light. Even so, others are pooh-poohing the results of those difficult transition tasks. As if your beliefs and actions have little value.

This meditation can either be done resting on your back (à la savasana) or in a seated, more classic meditative posture.

TAKE TIME TO BE STILL
“Work is not always required … there is such a thing as sacred idleness, the cultivation of which is now fearfully neglected.”
— George MacDonald
When was the last time you did absolutely nothing?
Our world is so addicted to productivity that we feel guilty if we’re not doing something. But taking time daily to be still and inactive opens us to the spacious present. It nurtures and restores balance. Give yourself a regular gift of inactivity.
“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.”
— Sir J. Lubbock

“A noble spirit will seek the reward of virtue in the consciousness of it, rather than in popular opinion.”
-Pliny the Younger (C.E. 62? – 113?)
There’s a saying that virtue is its own reward, and it probably came from this quote. As we learn and grow, we understand that we really answer only to ourselves. We can’t please everyone, and we can’t go against what we know in our heart to be right. All we can do is the best we can at any given moment
