Notes/Thoughts

“Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye.”
– H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

What is love?

Let’s start by defining ‘love…’

love
/ləv/
noun

1. A feeling of affection towards someone or something; usually experienced in honesty or openness: or something a person ‘is present to’ in the universe.


“Love” itself is a constant.

constant
/ləv/
noun

1. Something that does not change.

Love is always present and unchanging.

Let’s continue by defining ‘connection…’


connection
/kəˈnekSHən/
noun

1. A relationship.

‘Tis not a feeling, it’s a relationship.


relationship
/riˈlāSHənˌSHip/
noun

1. The way in which two people are connected, for instance; they work together; they are mother and daughter; they are father and son; they date; they are married.

Keep it simple!

There is no “supposed to” in “relationship.”

Let’s further continue by defining love, again; this time the verb…


love
/ləv/
verb

1. To care for someone or something; love in action. To do something nice for someone.

That’s it!

Everyone and everything…is always connected. And love as a verb is expressed in action….Love is always present. The quality or state of a “relationship” depends on you.

  • If you want authenticity, be authentic…
  • If you want openness, be open…
  • If you want peace, be peaceful…
  • If you want fun, be fun…
  • If you want creativity, be creative…
  • If you want love…it’s everywhere!
    Find a healthy way to experience it!

healthy
/ˈhelTHē/
noun

1. The state of being sound; the state of being comfortable and clear…

Sometimes we have to remind ourselves that love is present.

  • Look at a picture
  • Take a moment
  • Recall a conversation

All points in space and time are connected…


Ask yourself…

…If I were love, how would I feel?

Or

…If I were deeply concerned about this person, what would I say or what would I do? 

Or

…If I were deeply concerned about the world, how would I feel and what would I do, today?

How would I be?
Then live from the question and see what unfolds…

EVERYDAY…


Play… The Happy & Successful Game!

Rules:

If you notice you’re in the moment, you’re present, you’re paying attention to every detail, savoring the moment, you win. You are a success! If you notice you’re not in the moment, you’re not present, you’re not paying attention to every detail, not savoring the moment, you loose. 

The End. 

*Ya gotta do somethin’ to play!

Articles, books and videos on “peace, healing, being present, expressing yourself, following your dreams, treating yourself, creating your life, enjoying the moment, simplifying your life, getting unstuck, moving forward, having fun, forgiving, pushing yourself, feeling your feelings, following your heart, loving yourself, having a positive body image, laughing, finding flow, being different, possibility, trusting people, grounding yourself, letting go, happiness, finding your calling, creating peace of mind, setting an intention, etc.” Enjoy!


Imagine what could happened if we all focused on the intention this week! The purpose of focusing on an intention, or question is to practice it, so it can be called upon always and forever.


Remember, everyone is on their own path at their own pace, and we all have the same value. Also, while examining the intention and answering the question, make sure you’re not hurting yourself or anyone else.


Please practice yoga safely, and pause or stop when you need to pause or stop.  Listen to your body! Also, please consult a doctor before engaging in the practice of yoga. The Yoga Book blog, it’s affiliates, etc. do not take any responsibility for injuries, actions etc. which may occur as a result of doing yoga, focusing on the question/intention, or doing “Today’s Class.” Also, The Yoga Book blog is not intended to be a substitute for professional help. It is simply information based on experience and some research. Remember, you are making your own choices ~ following your own path, your own heart. ‘Tis up to you, what you do, and your sole responsibility. It is also your responsibility please, to seek the professional help you may need in dealing with the issues that may arise in your life.

…And we all need a little help, sometimes 🙂


The Yoga Book

“The idea for The Yoga Book came to me in a yoga class! I saw it clearly in my mind and I needed somewhere to write it down. Also, I had recently met with a Indian medical doctor, who had said “Different styles of yoga effect people differently, so it is important to know which ‘style of yoga’ is right for you.” So, I decided to create a book, where people could journal about their experiences in a yoga class, write about the different postures – how they felt, get inspired, and write about their insights… Sometimes I would come to class with a problem, any problem, and leave with a solution! And when I did, I’d write it down somewhere, so I decided to create The Yoga Book.” 

– Creator of The Yoga Book
