    Simple wisdom from the Big G

    By Gloria

    I’m not sure my teacher knows I refer to her as the Big G. I like the term. I always sign off on my communication as “G.” I imagine the “Big G” to be the wiser part of myself. So here are some of my favourite “simple wisdoms” from her workshops at the Yoga Journal Conference in San Francisco:

    • “Don’t search for enlightenment, assume you are enlightened. It’s just buried under some deep neuorsis.”
    • “Empty your mind..not to the state of being dumb but to the state of being wise. When your mind is emptier, you can receive messages.”
    • “choose what you want to keep in your mind”
    • “now that we have moved into the Aquarian Age, stop using the word “practice” to refer to your yoga. Live the yoga, don’t practice it. It’s like someone practicing piano for a concert. Don’t practice, be the concert.”
    • On Conversations with God: “Why do you want to read about someone else’s conversations with God. You have to have your own conversations with God, whether it’s by walking through the forest, or cooking with your kids or through meditation and prayer. Without this you’re missing a pretty big link.”

      Thank you g & G, oh my how this resonates.What came through for me from this message: *Clear all that does not allow the best possiblity for recieving & sharing the healing potential of Yoga. A ever evolving renewal, flowing, vibrant aliveness. The unification of mind, body, breath and spirit. A heart centered journey of witnessing & letting go, surrendering into to all that comes to teach. Listen to the whispers of the heart. Share and live the teachings that invite those that have eyes to see, ears to hear the inspiration of the soul. A continuous journey on the path of a life that is collaborative, creative, inspiring and kind.A thought becomes a word, a word becomes a sentence, that finds it's voice to speak on the pages of my journal. Then the impulse to share the 'conversation' of the heart with those too who have inspired me to 'find your own voice' embrace your essence, and offer encouragement to live an authentic life. We can thrive in our unique 'expression' knowing that there is only one you & there is me, and together through our smiles, so warm and kind we offer this kindness that is always there for all to share.ever the student willing to learn and grow. A deep bow of gratitude. k.
