Happiness

La raíz de la felicidad descansa en nuestra  mente; las circunstancias externas no son mas que adversas o favorables.

What is essential is invisible to the eyes

landscape“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

“Sólo con el corazón se puede ver bien. Lo esencial es invisible par los ojos”

Patience

lago-tranquilo

Do you have the patience to wait till your mud settles and the water is clear?

Can you remain unmoving till the right action arises by itself?

Lao Tzu

¿Tienes la paciencia para esperar a que tu barro se aquiete y el agua esté tranquila?, ¿puedes permanecer inmóvil hasta que la acción correcta aparezca por si misma?

Breathe and Smile

Connect With Your Body

(Eve Ensler) In the Body of the World: A Memoir of Cancer and Connection

I think – from my own life experience, and certainly what I’ve discovered in many women and men across the planet – is [that] when we’re traumatized, when we’re beaten, when we’re raped, we leave our bodies. We disconnect from ourselves. And if it’s true that one out of every three women on the planet have been raped or beaten, which is a U.N. statistic, that’s a billion women.
Many, many of us have left our bodies – we’re not embodied creatures, we’re not living inside our own muscles and cells and sinews. And so we’re not in our power, we’re not in our energy.
[…]
It’s been a long journey to get fully back into my body. And, certainly, what I’ve seen everywhere in the world is that the more traumatized people are, the less connected they are to their own source of strength, their own source of inspiration, intuition, heart – everything.

Yoga and Mindfulness helps us to connect with our body giving us energy and strength to discover our own source of inspiration and intuition. It allows us to express our interior to the exterior reveling our heart to the word.
