Cultivating patience

You are right where you need to be. “Suffering turns into hopelessness when you forget that it’s your teacher.” ~Ezra Bayda~ Sometimes it may feel like you are stuck. You’ve completed one aspect of your journey, the energy there has depleted and you may feel unsure of what your next steps should be. These are […]

You can set yourself free

You can choose to set yourself free. “We cling to our beliefs, even when we know they cause us suffering. We maintain our illusions, even when they make us miserable. We know this, but we refuse to act on it…. What are we waiting for?” ~Ezra Bayda~ Don’t demand that you be perfect. Rather than […]

You are the Universe in motion

Love more. Participate more. Share your light and passions. “When the world feels overwhelming, I want to love bigger, I want to love louder, I want to be connected to my community.” ~Mona Tavakoli~ You are changing the world. Every life you touch shifts in response to your unique energy. Each of us has an […]

Living fearlessly

When fear arises, don’t reject it. Shine the light of consciousness upon it. “The little self, driven by fear and a craving for comfort, identifies only with “me.” The true self, driven by nothing, identifies with the unbounded awareness that we truly are.” ~Ezra Bayda~ The light of consciousness transforms all that it shines upon. […]

What lies within

Life responds to you. “And what is the path? To learn to reside in whatever life presents. To learn to attend to all those things that block the flow of a more open life, and to see them as the very path to awakening – all the constructs, the identities, the holding back, the protections, […]

Your journey is unique

Live in celebration of life. “Your life should reach to others. Your blissfulness, your benediction, your ecstasy should not be contained within you like a seed.” ~Osho~ When you release expectation and simply take responsibility for your own joy in this moment, you create space for a new quality of peace and stillness in your […]


You can set yourself free. “Become more conscious, release more conscious energy in your being, explode into consciousness – and then you will see you are living a life in absolute attunement with existence.” ~Osho~ Your journey is your own. Honor it as sacred. Begin with kindness toward yourself. As you move toward greater awareness, […]

Look deeper

Choose to see past the roles that people play to a deeper truth. “How much of our distress is rooted in the stories we weave around our experiences? Dropping our story line is critical to bring aware of what is actually happening in the present moment.” ~Ezra Bayda~ We learn through contrast. The mind projects […]

Life will take care of itself

You don’t have to be angry, triggered, depressed or fed up in order to bring about change in your experience. “Practice being able to honestly express your feelings of loss without believing that you must be filled with sorrow as well. It is possible to feel the loss, express it, and still know within the […]

Open to life

Make your spiritual practice a purposeful aspect of your daily experience. “To stay present in everyday life, it helps to be deeply rooted within yourself; otherwise, the mind, which has incredible momentum, will drag you along like a wild river.” ~Eckhart Tolle~ It’s easy to be Zen when sitting in meditation, spending quiet moments in […]
