Bali Vinyasa Yoga for Green Tara by Silvia Mordini

Compassion in Action: Green Tara is usually depicted as a compassionate being (Mother Buddha) ready to step down from her lotus throne to offer comfort and protection from all of the sufferings we experience in the world.

This was filmed with the mantra om tare tuttare sure swaha in mind.

Mantra Meaning: From your heart of compassion, please help me to let go and release all blockages so I may have peace, clarity and happiness.

In the teachings of the Dalai Lama he reminds us “that when we chant the Green Tara mantra, we are not simply asking for Tara’s blessings and help with our lives and our “real world” problems. Actually, we are also asking to be liberated from the misery of the mental delusions and negative emotions that blind us to true freedom, and to achieve the same enlightened body, speech and mind that Tara represents, not only for our own benefit, but for the benefit of all sentient beings.”

For me being near the water always promotes the feminine, lunar energy of nurturance. I need that in my life and I know you do too. Jim’s sound vibration makes this mantra even more powerful. I appreciate how he adds in English lyrics as well, “the secret of feeling alive is to love.”

All of the quotes within the video are from Rumi whose writings to me exemplify universal LOVE.

How to Live Your Dreams

“We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams.” -Roald Dahl

Guess which one of us is the music maker or dreamer? Is it possible we could be both?
Love yourself enough to live from possibility.

What you may not know is I studied music for 13 years and Jim is an incredible writer besides what you may know already.

Individually we have both intentionally chosen to live our dream. We both left the corporate world to follow our bliss. We’ve moved to another part of the country, we’ve actively pursued a life we love.
We can tell you how we did it. We can support you in making the changes you want for your best life. Come live in possibility and you’ll transform the way you see yourself.

The Light is the Healer

“Light
will someday split you open
even if your life is now a cage,
For a divine seed, the crown of destiny,
is hidden and sown on an ancient, fertile plain
that you hold the title to.
Love will surely bust you wide open
into an unfettered, blooming new galaxy
A life-giving radiance will come,
O look again within yourself,
For I know you were once the elegant host
To all the marvels in creation.
Behold the Beautiful One
from the vantage point of Love.
He is conducting the affairs
of the whole universe
in a tree house – on a limb
in your heart.”
‪#‎Hafiz‬

The light in Bali is a healer unto itself. It is unlike other light. It does open you wide as it whispers love into the air around you.

One only needs to sit amongst the trees and absorb their medicine, along with the symphony of healing botanicals all around you.

Looking out at the coconut palm trees you can feel the universe being conducted – through your human experience of love “in a tree house – on a limb in your heart.” – Blessed be, Silvia

Creating a More Peaceful World Through Yoga

IMG_1426

In a yoga practice as we move + breathe, the overall energy and vibration is heightened within us and around us as we synch with the universal rhythm. As we stretch beyond the four corners or our mat and move through the day, the vibrations we emit continue to ripple throughout our surroundings.

It is rhythm entrainment, or sympathetic vibration. Anodea Judith explains in “Wheels of Light” that two waves with similar frequencies — or even one wave that is close enough to a dormant source can be set into motion — and will eventually move into phase with one another, increasing the expansiveness + depth of the wave.

In relating physics to our inner-workings, there is potential for us as yogis to cultivate a more peaceful and connected world through the reverberations of our practice.

When we join together as a tribe of teacher trainees, transformation is ignited. In surrounding ourselves with high-consciousness individuals vibrating at similar frequencies, potential heightens and depth expands. It is the Alchemy of Yoga, and we emerge ready to effectively inspire others.

Simplifying Your Life

JAI GANESHA!

“Dukha, the bad stuff, happens to everyone. We must stop feeding our stress phobia thinking we are trying to eradicate the bad stuff. The real obstacle to spiritual practice is thinking that to be happy we must be stress-free. Obstacles are not the problem. Life is full of setbacks, traffic jams, heart breaks and road blocks. It is our reaction and hostaging of energy that is the real block to our happiness. Learning how to stress successfully is the answer to staying zen.”

Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha

#‎Mantra‬ Defined: In the mythic storytelling of ‪#‎Ganesha‬, the well loved deity to whom we chant to help us remain friendly with our obstacles.

Mantra “I Simplify”:

Take this quick simplification personal assessment. Remove your own obstacles.

Where am I? Where would I like to be? (in relation to these)
–Being busy and overwhelmed
–Self-esteem
–Worry
–Putting the needs of others first
–Anger
–Fear
–Inner Peace and fulfillment

16 Quotes to Inspire Kindness, by Silvia Mordini

Being a good person matters. It’s easy to take how to be kind for granted. It seems like a sort of “background” thing we’re supposed to do that is always there.

However, kindness is an active choice. And the more conditioned we are to respond with kindness, the more natural it becomes. There are no obstacles to feeling kindness towards others.

May these 16 quotes to inspire kindness work for you!
