What habits are you strengthening​?

We all form habits as we go through life. Yoga teaches us that even our good habits keep us from growing spiritually. This is because habits are by definition an attachment to a pattern of behavior, or a form of dependence. So a key principle of yoga is to break our both our mental and physical attachments. This includes not just our attachments to material objects (like needing chocolate to be happy), but also attachments to only seeing things in one way or repeating the same thoughts over and over expecting a different result, which by the way is the textbook definition of insanity. Yoga gives us a chance to examine our behavioral patterns and realize that our habits, even the good ones, keep us stuck. Only then can we…

Complaint Free Diet

We have no more right to put our discordant states of mind into the lives of those around us and rob them of their sunshine and brightness than we have to enter their houses and steal their silverware. – Julia Moss Seton When we complain we draw negative things to us because we’re putting out negative energy. Therefore one of the most important healthy habits we can learn is not to complain. Strip your mental diet of complaining and see for yourself the difference it makes! What is a Complaint?

Do you adore yourself?

Your Daily #HappinessRx: Please bring your palms together in namaste and with an inward focus toward our own hearts breath deeply. As you close your eyes you turn into the darkness to see that inner light within the untouched place known as maja. It is a place unblemished by sadness or meanness or anger. It is the seat of wisdom known as our spiritual heart. The yogis believe that each of us replicates the world at large, embodying “rivers, seas, mountains, fields…stars and planets…the sun and moon” (Shiva Samhita, II.1-3). The outer sun, they asserted, is in reality a token of our own “inner sun,” which corresponds to our subtle, or spiritual, heart. So, when we practice Surya Namaskar, which is a humble adoration of the insight of the self…

Why I’m Quitting (and You Should, Too)

“Don’t settle. Don’t finish crappy books. If you don’t like the menu, leave the restaurant. If you’re not on the right path, get off it.” – Chris Brogan I was raised with the immigrant mentality of work harder—and then work much harder—and above all else never quit. I associated shame with quitting, and quitting with being ashamed. But while you certainly aren’t going to get A’s and B’s by quitting, or get into the college of your dreams by quitting, or let alone land your dream job—is it possible that you could live your happiest life by selective quitting? What if we aren’t quitting enough—and not the other way around? Maybe instead of reading articles titled “Why You Should Stay in Your Job” or “How to Know If You Should…

Creating Your Mission Statement

INTENTION AS A MISSION STATEMENT The word for Intention in Sanskrit is Sankalpa.  Ask yourself, “What happiness are you manifesting? Are you living a life you love?” And in order to realize our greatest potential, to manifest our biggest dreams we have to take charge of our I AM statements answering this question:  Who Am I? This is the foundation of successful intention setting. INTENTION SETTING  “Our intention creates our reality.” – Wayne Dyer “The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen.” – Frank Lloyd Wright “Intention is the core of all conscious life.
 Conscious intention colors and moves everything.” – Master Hsing Yun When you break down the process of what true intention really is, you will find a…
