5 mins. 5 hours. 5 days. 5 years. a lifetime.

“when you meet that person. a person. one of your soulmates. let the connection. relationship be what it is. it may be five mins. five hours. five days. five months. five years. a lifetime. let it manifest itself, the way it is meant to. it has an organic destiny. this way if it stays or if it leaves, you will be softer from having been loved this authentically. souls come into, return, open, and sweep through your life for a myriad of reasons, let them be who and what they are meant.”
~ Nayyirah Waheed

choice point.

"Growth actually has discomfort to it. The deeper you go, the more uncomfortable it gets in some ways, and yet in other ways, the more fulfilling it gets.

We tend to prefer the comfort of the known...even if it's not helpful...even if it's somewhat painful, than the discomfort of the unknown...even if the unknown is inspired, unique and totally breaking out of our shell...breaking out of our old state, our old self. Often times as we practice, we start feeling a new part of us emerging and coming forward, and we may actually feel a recoiling of sorts...a recoiling back into the known. And here is where we stand at a "Choice Point."

Am I going to courageously face the unknown so that I will continue to grow and evolve? Will I continue to follow inspiration and allow positive changes to happen? Or am I going to step back into what's more familiar...the old, no longer constructive state?"

welcome a beginner's mind.

Move from the Known to the Unknown. 
Leave room for the mystery and let the mystery carry you forward.
Stay open to what comes.

Life is uncertain. 
The goal is not to become more certain about anything but to relax more into the mystery of not knowing what will come next.



notice what happens when you get quiet . . .

A quiet mind is able to hear intuition over fear. 

"Your intuition is really a sudden immersion of the soul into the universal current of life."
