Here are your fresh Love & Inspirations for the week ahead:
- “Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
2) One of the Best Motivational Speeches Ever
I love this. I had no idea of the depth and intelligence of Jim Carrey. I knew he was hilarious but….Wow! I’m totally speechless. “Many of us make decisions through fear disguised as practicality”. A huge topic on our retreat this week has been LOVE vs FEAR, and Jim Carrey addresses this incredibly. You can watch the whole speech on Youtube as well.
3) Read the 4 Agreements
The 4 Agreements – by Don Miguel Ruiz
This book changed my life, and I’ve been revisiting these key agreements as a way to engage more gracefully with myself, with life and with other people. Currently I’m working deeply with #2 – Take nothing personally. I tend to. So it’s been wonderful to revisit this and remember that often, if there is disharmony in relationship, it is stemming from suffering or unhappiness, either in myself, the other person, or more likely, both of us.
The Four Agreements are:
- Be Impeccable With Your Word.
- Don’t Take Anything Personally.
- Don’t Make Assumptions.
- Always Do Your Best.
Which agreement do you feel you could benefit most from working with?
I’d LOVE to hear from You.
4) Inspiring Reminder
Yesterday on retreat, we did some epic ecstatic dance and vocal activation. For most of the students, it was one of the highlights and breakthroughs. It was also one of the biggest challenges. At first, the students were tentative, they felt awkward, I felt the looks of mistrust distrust….but then every single person cracked open a new layer of letting go, of freedom, We were all reminded that in fact, the magic, the growth, the evolution, the proverbial lotus growing from the mud, arises when we take the leap outside of our comfort zones. Woo hoo!
5) Music Video
- Radiohead – Daydreaming from “A Moon Shaped Pool”
What can I say? I’ll probably always LOVE anything and everything created by Radiohead. Deep, powerful, incredibly well-produced and created. They are still one of my favourite all-time bands and this is a beautiful short film.
