Cultivating our capacity

Cultivating our capacity

“While we can’t control what’s happening around us, we can cultivate the capacity to be with what is with more ease, joy, and freedom.” ~Sebene Selassie

Cultivating our capacity to be with what is not only makes life easier, it also gives us more energy left over to work toward changing what can be changed instead of fruitlessly resisting or trying to control our reality. How are you cultivating your capacity to be with what is in your life?

Ongoing transformation

Ongoing transformation

“Allow yourself to transform as many times as you need to be totally free.” ~Yung Pueblo

Every time I’ve allowed myself to undergo major transformation, I always feel like I’ve reached the end of what’s possible. Like an onion, however, there are always more layers waiting to be peeled away with new rounds of transformation. Each one peels away beliefs, patterns, habits, or situations that have kept me trapped so that each one leaves me with greater freedom. That experience of freedom encourages me each time I face a new round of choosing the challenge of allowing myself to be transformed.

How often do you allow yourself to be transformed?

To bear fruit

To bear fruit

“Just as the trees, if they have not stood before the winter’s storms cannot bear fruit, so it is with us.” ~Amma Theodora

Our muscles require exercise to remain strong, and physical therapy facilitates the body’s healing. Likewise, life’s challenges strengthen our spiritual, emotional, and psychological “muscles” to keep us strong, growing, and healing.
