The Only Way is Thru

”Nobody will protect you from your suffering. You can’t cry it away or eat it away or starve it away or walk it away or punch it away or even therapy it away. It’s just there, and you have to survive it. You have to endure it. You have to live through it and love it and move on and be better for it and run as far as you can in the direction of your best and happiest dreams across the bridge that was built by your own desire to heal.” 
— Cheryl Strayed

Rest Before You Get Tired

“To prevent fatigue and worry, the first rule is: Rest before you get tired.” ~ Dale Carnegie

Carnegie gives us a chapter-full of the benefits of using relaxation as a means to reduce worry—and the fact that preventing fatigue is a huge step toward preventing worry. He starts by making the point that it’s *impossible* to be totally relaxed and worried at the same time. Impossible. That alone is enough advice to solve most of our worry.

Stressed? Relax. TOTALLY relax.

The point is simple: you can prevent WORRY by preventing FATIGUE. How do you that? A lot of ways. But the smartest is to rest before you’re tired. Carnegie cites the U.S. Army, your heart, Winston Churchill, Rockefeller, Thomas Edison and many others to prove his point.

The U.S. Army? Rests its soldier ten minutes out of every hour they march. BEFORE they get tired. And they’re overall efficiency goes up.

Churchill? Worked 16 hours a day in his late sixties and early seventies during World War II. His secret? He worked from bed a *lot,* took naps and rested frequently.

Rockefeller (lived to 96) took a half-hour nap EVERY noon.

Edison attributed his enormous energy and endurance to his habit of sleeping whenever he wanted to.

P1100208And, how about the coolest example? Your heart. As Carnegie says: “Your heart pumps enough blood through your body every day to fill a railway tank car. It exerts enough energy every twenty-four hours to shovel twenty tons of coal onto a platform three feet high. It does this incredible amount of work for fifty, seventy, or maybe ninety years. How can it stand it? Dr. Walter B. Cannon, of the Harvard Medical School, explained it. He said, “Most people have the idea that the heart is working all the time. As a matter of fact, there is a definite rest period after each contraction. When beating at a moderate rate of seventy pulses per minute, the heart is actually working only nine hours out of the twenty-four. In the aggregate its rest periods total a full fifteen hours per day.”

Learning how to make time for recovery is vitally important to your physical, spiritual and emotional health.

Radical self-care is the most spiritually mature action you could take towards your own evolution. And as a result, we will have more to give to the world as we Teach Peace.

Love yourself, love your day, love your life!

I Renewed my Vow to Love

This morning at mass I renewed my vows to Love. I was reminded that on this day we all have the opportunity to renew our vows.

With the supportive energy of the ‪#‎newmoon‬ I’m born to ‪#‎beginagain‬. I breathe as if for the very first time. Every new moment is sacred. Everything inside me is love.

My 4th ‪#‎chakra‬ ‪#‎anahata‬ (which means “unhurt”) is reset.

There is nothing to fear.
There is nothing to forgive.

My heart is open, flowing freely with love and compassion. Singing tonight ‪#‎waheguru‬
