My name is Brenda, and I'm a co-dependent. Join me as I embark on my journey to examine and recreate my life through the guidance of Al Anon, through yogic principles, and through the wisdom of trusted friends.
If you are depressed you are living in the past.
If you are anxious you are living in the future.
If you are at peace you are living in the present.
I sat in awe looking at the glorious colors dancing on the water. There’s something to staying still and witnessing nature.

A morning affirmation

inhabitude:

You know what you need to know. What you need to do. Who you really are. Don’t listen to the voices of others. You have all the wisdom necessary to meet this moment.

Don’t deny any part of who you are. Don’t setup a shadow self to hide or attack. Bring your woundedness into the light. Be vulnerable. Be uncertain. Be misunderstood. Be you.

Emerson’s essays & poetry mirror those found in the Yoga Sutras.

lotuspower:

"Standing on the bare ground, — my head bathed by the blithe air and uplifted into infinite space, — all mean egotism vanishes. I become a transparent eyeball; I am nothing; I see all; the currents of the Universal Being circulate through me; I am part and parcel of God." From Nature

I just love this…
