See, everything works out exactly the way it should. Why do I keep resisting it? What can’t I just accept the lesson with gratitude?

Chaos in Harmony

Photo Credit: Eric Allen The story picks up from my last post about Envision: Sunset in the Vortex Saturday night, I’m not sure when, exactly. Time is starting to lose meaning after witnessing a miraculous sunset and spending what seemed like an eternity relishing the most delicious mango I’ve ever consumed. I’m at the Lapa stage,Continue reading “Chaos in Harmony”

Removing Barriers

My Experiment: Part 12 You can read Part 11 here: Digging Deeper At the end of yoga class the other day, the teacher (the wonderful Dagmar from Montezuma Yoga) shared a poem from Rumi that deeply resonated with me: “Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and remove all the barriersContinue reading “Removing Barriers”

It’s a tricky balance: if the tide is too high, it washes out the break. But if the tide is too low, the rocks appear–Continue reading “Fitting Right In”

Enjoying the Journey

My Experiment: Part 7 (You can read Part 6 here: Slowing Down) My apartment in Costa Rica is about two miles outside of town, which takes me roughly forty minutes to walk. There’s a bus that runs past three times a day, but the schedule isn’t always convenient and it doesn’t run at night. Consequently,Continue reading “Enjoying the Journey”
