Connect with your inner essence and conduct yourself in alignment with what is best for you – not what is best materially or socially, not what is best to correct the past or to position you for the future, not what you are craving or what you believe you need, but knowing your place and greater purpose.

Stand up fully for yourself and confidently guide your experience with grace.

This is what it means to be present.

If there is ever a time when I feel lost, overwhelmed or confused by the voices of mind and emotions, I need only to take a deep breath. Like a giant bright-colored arrow, my breath points me right back to the space of my heart. Each inhale reminds me of the limitlessness of my self knowing. With each exhale I find the power to trust the truth in my heart, to fearlessly and squarely face whatever lies before me, inside or out. There I find true courage.

How often we feel that we live on our own, independently and in control.

There is however a subtle thread, an undeniable connection, a need for us to be together.

Yes, we are all interwoven, creating together this thing called life.

Where is it that one begins and the other ends? It doesn’t matter. With keen awareness we come to realize that each makes a vital contribution – whether as the catalyst of our evolution or a keeper of safe space.

Each with a special purpose…part of the greater existence.

Alone we are ordinary.

Together we are unique, complete and whole.

There is a peacefulness that emanates from even the feistiest cat, a sense of equanimity. Cats are so good at freeing themselves from attachment and aversion.

Cats have a beautiful way of expressing exactly what works for them and what doesn’t. They hold an exceptional space of balance, calm and confidence.

I think this week I will conduct myself more like a cat. Cultivating my awareness with a keen focus on fostering tranquility, truly knowing what is best for me, and not going outside of boundaries that might upset the tender balance of peace within and all around me.

That is not to say that I won’t hunt and play just like the best of them. But, when I do it will be with full energy, enthusiasm, power, and contentment.

And I might also work in some extra time to stretch out and nap in the sun.
