Levels Of Love

 Capacity is everything. Your capacity to live, to love and to be loved is directly proportionate to one's depth. The deeper you feel, the bigger you love. Of course, the opposite is also true. The bigger you love, the bigger the hurt can be.

It's been my experience, that pain is one of the best/worst teachers. It mirrors your capacity to love. It shows you how deep you can really go or have gone. In fact, the greater you grieve, the greater you have loved. 

So, wear your pain as a badge of honour. Wear it proudly, because it takes incredible courage to love. It also takes incredible courage to forgive those who do not love the same. We are all doing the best we can with the tools we were given and I am brave because I have loved. 

Who have you loved today?

Making Space...

With every break up, comes the inevitable emptiness - the loss. And the loss, reminds us of impermanence. Nothing stays the same, no matter how hard we cling. Try as we might, life is an ever changing, breathing, trans-formative energy. Resistance tends to be futile and regardless of how you thought it SHOULD BE, you cannot fight the natural flow of the universe. You cannot fight it because the universe is ALWAYS making space. It’s making space for you!

Believe it or not, it supports your highest self. It will create the opportunities (even the sucky ones) that you need to grow as a person and push you beyond what you thought you were capable of. Challenge you to purge the dead wood and make room for new life.

This is no easy task and tends to be horribly uncomfortable. It’s uncomfortable because it’s a new space, a rebirth of self, an expansion of consciousness. It’s a brand new you and as difficult as it may seem, the universe wants you to embrace it.

So, this time around, I’ve decided to embrace change. I’ve decided to make space. The first place I decided to make space in my new life with this new version of myself is by transforming an empty space in my apartment.

Let’s be honest, nothing is sadder than an empty room haunted by old memories, so, let’s start by creating new ones!

 Behold, the yoga room!
