A taste of Truth

Once you taste Truth, it’s almost impossible to go back ⚡️

Because on the other side of the ignorance and disillusion (no matter how simple or complex) is a deep found clarity and freedom felt within the heart, which brings some sort of resolve and inner contentment.

And once you’ve touched it, there’s a subtle but constant yearning to access this state of grounded liberation.

The body remembers this feeling and always wants to move from this place — anything less feels inauthentic and seems superficial.

And eventually you fine tune your awareness to listen closer and perceive the small messages/signs to discern what is true for YOU in every conversation and circumstance.

It’s a practice of becoming clear on who you are, what you value and how to create heathy boundaries to protect that — its an art to skillfully contain, direct and channel your Prana (energy) towards the right people, projects and places.

But every right action (no matter how small or large) is a step forwards.

And the more right action you take, the easier it becomes to flow from this place.

The small steps create momentum that pulse into fulfillment of the larger intentions, aligning your day to day actions to support your life’s desires, dreams and greater purpose.

To live with radical Truth is to clear the path for yourself and those around you...to rise into who you are truly meant to be and give permission for others to do the same!

It’s your individual birth right, duty and highest form of liberation.

So the reminder and encouragement is to continue serving your heart with honest daily ‘check ins’ through committed practices, trusting that what serves you moment to moment will ALWAYS serve the collective heart of the world, one honest thought, conversation and action at a time 🕊

Guru Purnima

Deep bows to all the beautiful teachers in my life and those who continue to fuel my growth on this auspicious day of Guru Purnima. Teachers come in many forms - parents, friends, lovers, children, animals, nature, archetypes...and through all experiences in life of both love and loss. 
Today is a sacred day in Hindu culture to honor and pay respects to the ones who have opened the gates of the heart on our Spiritual path. 
The Guru. 
The one who leads us from darkness to light. 
The one who shows us our shadow and our luminosity. 
The ones who courageously walk the path and lovingly guide the way. 
Grateful to all the teachers who continue to guide me through the Yoga traditions to accelerate my growth, as well as the community who shows up around me to immerse in the practices. 
In my experience, these teachers present themselves at the exact moment in time and are committed, present, authentic and full of love. They are embodied in many ways, yet receptive and humble along the way. 
Thank you to each of you for standing in your strength. You inspire and fuel me in so many ways
