"There is no passion to be found in playing small, in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living."
Life, like baseball, is hard. It's supposed to be hard. It's the hard that makes it great. And the only way to make the "great" part work for you, is by tackling Life head on. Free from fears and burdens, and armed with a passion that burns like the light of a thousand stars.
So go ahead. Go do that.
Like everything worth having in life, it is easer said than done. Easier wished for than accomplished. But the best way to begin is by believing that you can. Believing in your inherent potential and capacity for greatness. A greatness that's judged as equally by it's outcome as by the way in which it was achieved. Anything done in love and with dedication is a success, because it inspires others to do the same.
Asanas that bring out a playful and spontaneous spirit will serve you well in your quest to discover your soul's passion. Variations on parsva bakasana (side crow) like scissored legs, or the lovely fallen angel pose are wonderful ways to find a sense of suspension in infinite grace. Ardha Chandrasana (half moon) with the sugarcane pose variation (Chapasana) allows the heart to open fearlessly into the unknown. And Goddess pose with eagle arms (garudasana) is a call to the Muses to refill your cup with inspiration and beauty.
For their part doTERRA has harnessed the naturally warming and renewing qualities of some of nature's most delicious herbs and spices for their Inspiring Blend, Passion. A mix of Cardamon, Cinnamon, Ginger, Clove and Vanilla, with some Sandalwood and Jasmine sprinkled in, it's impossible to take a single whiff of this fragrance and not feel a sudden burst of clarity and inspiration. Add to your pulse points or diffuse throughout the day to overcome burdens and blockages, boredom and disinterest, and begin to live your life with the passion it deserves.
"Be fearless in pursuit of what sets your soul on fire."
I love incorporating doTerra essential oils ~ and all things holistic and natural ~ into my life, my home, my practice and my classes.
