The Inca Trail as a Metaphor for Life

I just hiked the Inca trail in Peru! It was one of the hardest things I have ever done both mentally and physically! Before we began one of our guides took me aside and said, “Are you the leader of this group?” I responded “yes.” He leaned in closer and looked me in the eye and said “You have a great responsibility. You will determine how the group does on this trail. They will look to you as their guide to find strength, encouragement and positive thinking. If you are positive they will be and if you are scared they will be.” I said “Yes, I don’t take that responsibility lightly.” He said “yes, but, this is even more serious because the mountain hears you. She will hear your thoughts and your words and she will give you whatever you are asking for. It is imperative that you keep you thoughts pure as we embark on this journey.”

May you Expect the unexpected!

Every day I try to look at the same things, hold the same yoga poses, go to the same places and see them differently. I seriously am a HABIT breaking fool! I view HABIT as the enemy! I struggle with the same boundaries as everyone else. I get it! How do you live in the same house, with the same people, go to the same job and still expect the unexpected?

Force = Resistance

The yoga practice is a long awaited reuniting of all the aspects of self, the necessary parts that make you whole, content and happy. This miraculous practice is a process that allows the healing power of awareness to move back into the subtle body, like plugging a dying battery back into an outlet, it recharges you.

What if this is HEAVEN?

Being human is your soul occupying this body to maneuver through this experience in an effort to expand and evolve. When your soul is expanding it feels like joy, peace and love—your true nature. The closer you get to your true nature “joy” the lighter you feel and the less contrast you will need. When you have really found “joy” you will see perfection in everyone and everything. You will remember that your life’s purpose is to serve others and when you are living in alignment with your true nature you will find yourself residing in Heaven, right where you are. Heaven is a state of being.

What is standing between YOU and what you WANT?

When asked what they want, I have found that most people respond with “more money.” Understanding that money is a means to an end and not the end, I am driven to ask “What would you do with the money if you had it?” Confusion and silence takes over and instantaneously I feel a decline … Continue reading What is standing between YOU and what you WANT?
