â€œThe Teacher appears when the student is readyâ€ â€“ unknown
Teacher (Guru) Within
The teacher appearsâ€¦. Interesting. Searching, investigating, analyzing or critiquing is unnecessary. On the contraryâ€¦teachers appear spontaneously.
What an amazing universe we live in, wouldnâ€™t you say! Our wonderful Universe is Listening to our silent (or verbal) requests. All we (human beings) need do is state our intention(s) and let the â€œBig Spiritâ€ (universe) do the rest. How fantastic!
Maintaining a positive (prayers already answered) attitude leaves room for the â€œBig Spiritâ€ to work magic and miracles. Our work is to remain free. Free from worry, free from fears and free from the specifics, the detailsâ€¦ the how toâ€™s. Thatâ€™s right. We simply submit the question â€“ in the form of a heart-felt request. Then we put our faith in the hands of the â€œBig Spiritâ€ to work out the details.
In the meantime, we can spend our thoughts, words and action-time wisely by fueling the body and mind with gratitude, as we do the work of our lives.
Otherwise, can you imagine the stress created for the â€œBig Spiritâ€ if we spend our time relentlessly worried? Stressing about the details and the how toâ€™s?
Thankfully, spending time in positions (asanas), tuned in with our inner guidance system, helps us maintain a light and uplifted body and mindset.
Feel free to re-align your position to one that is stable, comfortable and relaxed â€œlisteningâ€ position. There is nothing to do and nothing to seek. Just listen in a neutral, elongated, stable and comfortable position.
Sit, stand or lie down â€“ face up. Heart and hands open.
Exercise Patience. Give the â€œBig Spiritâ€ room to bring requests to fruition. Just Breathe.
Tune in with your inner, kind and compassionate guidance system.
I am worthy
I deserve to feel good (calm, relaxed, stable and comfortable)
I reward my mind and body by letting it rest and reset.
