8.2.17 Hawaii Day 10

The sun shines not ON us, but IN us.

John Muir

What a lovely morning! Met some new friends (pictured: Mel), hot Kapha flow yoga, delightful meditation, and stimulating conversation.

Idea from discussion today:
The sun gives all its gifts to everyone equally. There is no discrimination or withholding.  What we choose to do with those gifts makes all the difference.

Chant from today:
Om Thur Bhuvah Svah
Tat-Savitur Varenyam
Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi
Dhiya Yo Nah Pracodayat

One translation:
Everything from the Earth to the sky and in between is arising from one effulgent source.
If my thoughts, words, and deeds reflected a complete understanding of this unity,
I would be the peace I am seeking.

My thoughts:
Imagine being the peace you are seeking. It’s tough for me, but we are already complete, whole, and perfect beings. Sure we can grow and evolve, but everything we need to be the best versions of our selves lies within. We already have it.

Think. Connect. Elevate.
