Be Well Be Happy

There will be many detours but stay true to your heart. Opening into a vulnerable place usually causes discomfort and a certain shakiness. Every time I write this column, I feel torn open to what lies within me. I can only share my experiences and hope they help you in some way to live a life with some form of contentment and happiness. Each one of you has a story to tell. It is an honor to write about wellness today.

The practice of yoga is a wonderful way to find refuge in your heart, removing the need to control things. There are so many ways to find peace and calm during these precarious times. Let go of the ways you think life should be right now and find yourself going with the flow. 

A Hopi elder said: “There is a river flowing now, very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart and suffer greatly. Know that the river has its destination. The elders say we must push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open and our heads above the water. See who is in there with you and celebrate! At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, least of ourselves, for the moment we do that, our spiritual growth comes to a halt. The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves; banish the word ‘struggle’ from your attitude and vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred way and in celebration. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”  Let’s work together to move forward with courage and strength.

There are many healers living in Rockaway Beach. Perhaps you are one of them and you don’t even know it. Kindness and compassion are some of the traits a healer embodies. When you heal yourself, you become whole and free. Your love will flow unconditionally, and you will help guide others into this peaceful place.

Practice loving kindness towards yourself first then send it out into the world. We do not know why there is so much suffering and pain, but we can hold space for those by who have experienced loss or sickness. Simply bring that person into your mind and send loving thoughts. 

“It may have taken a long time, but in the end, it did not matter, after much healing through self-observation she now had strength, she now had courage, and the wisdom to wield her new magic with virtue. No longer did she run from her pain or her troubles, no longer did she allow delusions to capture her mind, no longer did she doubt that the greatest healer she has ever met is her own unconditional love.” You are a healer by young Pueblo.

May you be healed, may you be healthy, may you be happy and may you offer your love to others. We are in this together! One world. One life. One God.
