Purpose, Intention & Patience

Living with a sense of purpose is so important. Wake each day with a drive and will to do. Find things that interest you and a determination to learn, even when it is hard. Learn to figure things out-ask questions-make mistakes. Experience the inner sensations of your passion.

Life is to be lived with gusto-zest-zeal. You must live in and for the moment. Your goals and desires and hopes and dreams have many paths that lead to them. Allow yourself the freedom to travel many paths. They will lead you to experiences that will help you on your way. Do not be disappointed if your path is different than you thought it would be; instead be flexible. Learn along the way. Find joy in your travels. Be inspired to live.

Experience the moments within a larger context. Everything you do will cause an effect. Whether the desired one, or not, or possibly one that is not immediately noticeable…maybe not even in your lifetime. Above all be patient Know that patience is not just the ability to wait for it to happen. Rather, it is the absolute knowing that it will happen. Just. Know. It. Will. Happen.

You can effect change.

Alwasy keep your vibration high.

Have a positive outlook.

Look at your heart.

Have hope.

With peace,

Eve

If you are local to Natick, MA, please join me today. I will be leading a short Grove & Flow associated with the fire element and summer. Come get grounded!

Grounding In Community

Natick Common 1:30-3:00PM

Grounding In Community is an outdoor, in-person, and safe way to grow our hope and support each other. Every last Sunday afternoon, from 1:30 – 3:00, we meet under the shade of a giant tree on the Natick Common for a time of spiritual practice, artistic expression, and truth-telling. We lie on the grass, sit on blankets and chairs, sing, explore movement, and speak words of truth that give us greater strength and freedom.

We are living in times that are heavy with foreboding in terms of health, economics, and politics. And so we gather in community to affirm that we are not alone in being afraid and in needing support. Together we create a space where we find the courage to face all this…and to find a way of being well and of keeping hope alive within.

For everyone’s safety, we will wear masks and maintain six feet of distance. If you want, please also bring a blanket, yoga mat, or chair to sit on. It is also recommended to bring a water bottle.

If you are inspired to share a poem, story, song, or reading–something that grounds you in truth and gives you hope–there is a time of open sharing in the structure of the gathering where this will be welcome.

Mindful Book Reviews By Eve: Thank You, Me. By Elena Reznikova

Thank You, Me. By Elena Reznikova

I was so pleased to receive this sweet book about being thankful for what you have inherent in your own body. It brings all the gratitude home and focuses on appreciating your senses and your how you experience them. It is straight forward thankfulness for you being you and all the wonders you can notice. This book is full of positive affirmations of love, respect and trust, both for yourself and for the world around. I highly recommend this book and am looking forward to sharing it with my young yoga students. It will blend perfectly into my kids yoga classes about the miracle of being you. This is a lovely book! I also loved the included thank you cards for coloring and the accompanying gratitude journal. This makes a very cute set and would make a nice gift for the yogi in your life!

A note about the illustrations: Very cute cartoon-like images of a fuzzy purple monster, a smiling red-headed child and a menagerie of wide-eyed expressive animals pus tree, stars and snails, make this book and easy and educational book to connect with yoga poses as you read along with your class.

Thank you to the author for sending me a copy of this book. All opinions expressed are my own.
