How are you?

My bestie, from when I used to live in Japan in 2005, and who came to live and teach with me at the famous Green School here in Bali in 2011, just gave birth to her 2nd child.

I got to love and adore this magical baby creature when he was just 24 hours old and wow,

Just wow.

I’m feeling really inspired by the great mysteries of birth, life, death, creation and everything in between…

This baby needs so much love, presence and care to have his basic needs met, so he can thrive, grow and flow in this world.

and he doesn’t need to do, be or have anything other than he is: a crying, pooping, chilling being, for us all to LOVE him with all our hearts.

We forget that we are so much the same as this tiny being.

We need love to grow.
We need presence to thrive,
and, as cliche as it may sound,
we are perfect as we are.

We don’t need to play any roles, or be anyone other than we are,
nor do we need to have the perfect house, car, job, relationship, {fillintheblank].
nor do we need to do, achieve, or accomplish anything to be worthy of love and presence.

You know, presence is a form of love that truly is both the simplest and greatest gift that you can offer yourself and others.

Today I invite you to reflect: How can you offer your presence today in service of love?
What is one thing you can do to practice more presence today?

Please REPLY – I love hearing from you!

Here are some fresh inspirations to help inspire your presence for your week ahead:

Quote
“This moment is not life waiting to happen, goals waiting to be achieved, words waiting to be spoken, connections waiting to be made, regrets waiting to evaporate, aliveness waiting to be felt, enlightenment waiting to be gained. No. Nothing is waiting. This is it. This moment is life.”
― Jeff Foster, Falling in Love with Where You Are

Music
4 hours of FREE Yoga & Mediation Music by Moby
“I’m not doing yoga because I want to live to 500 years old and be young and beautiful for the rest of my life. It’s simply because, I enjoy it. It makes me feel good and I think it increased my chances for having a happier, healthier life. And creatively I get a lot more work done.” (Interview: The Deepak Chopra Channel]

What a gift! Musician, DJ, author, photographer, restaurant owner, and activist, Moby shares this beautiful, quiet, calm, ambient music for free download and streaming. You can learn more Moby’s new release and personal Yoga practice in this interview here.

Why Busyness Is Actually Modern Laziness by Rasmus Hougaard and Jacqueline Carter
Busyness is a choice. By being busy all the time with deadlines, projects, errands, to-do’s, are we avoiding facing life? The busier we keep ourselves, the more we avoid being confronted with questions of life and death. As we keep ourselves occupied with tasks, important or not, we keep a safe and comfortable distance from the issues that are sometimes hard to look at…

Any reflections on this? Sound like you? I’d LOVE to hear from You!
