H.O.P.E. Want to find out what secret is encoded in this?
Hope is one of my favorite words and it is at a premium right now. Many people have lost their hope and cannot seem to find it. They want someone else or something to give them hope. I want to share mine with you. I want to tell you one thing. You may not like what I’m going to say but: hope is contagious. If you want to be hopeful, you have to fill yourself up with hope and you have to keep the company of the hopeful.
How do you fill up with hope when it seems like we can recite all the reasons not to be hopeful. There seem to be many reasons to doubt hope at this moment. Yet, when we get hopeless we loose our “E.” Our “E” or energy goes down the tube and we have a name for this: depression. The “D” word is not a part of hope and it renders us very lethargic.
What is hopeful about these times? Everything is being transformed. That is both scary and exciting. You don’t have to choose one or the other; it often fluctuates back and forth between the two. The old is caving in on itself and we have a chance to rebuild a new, more gracious and inclusive way of living. Call it sustainable, call it green, call it pink – I don’t care but I know that it is more connected.
The connection you have to bring to the party called life is invaluable. You have a key to all of this and only you can discover it. Use all the help you want and need to uncover it. The truth is that you are the holder of it and only you can bring it forth. Others can help awaken it and structure it with and for you but you and you alone are your brand. This does not mean you have to do this alone. Quite the contrary, this is not the time for alone. It is the time for connection.
- You have to know what you have to offer. The knowingness comes from being, meditating, and allowing the vision.
- You have to be able to look around and see who can support you in bringing this forward. Different people might be at different stages.
- Look at what parts and people you need to make this happen or look at what is already happening to see how you can connect your gifts to something that is tangible.
- This is not a static process. Nor is it – 1,2,3, done. Stay with it. Commit to practicing it.
This is a great meditation to get you to a calm place of knowingness:
Sitali Breath: Breathe Out That Stress…
Roll the tongue and stick it past your lips. If you cannot roll it, just make an “O” shape with your mouth with the tongue protruding slightly beyond the lips. Breathe in deeply through the mouth. Exhale slowly through the nose emptying the lungs all the way.
Gift: The best anti-stress breath available. The breath passing over the wet tongue creates a cooling effect.
To attain knowingness you require vision, to get vision you need stillness, to have stillness you must lose the anxiety, to lose the anxiety you must have yoga (that
connects and unites you), to allow yoga you must have enough self-worth intact, to have self-worth you need support, to ask for support requires knowing that you
Knowing and asking remains at the core of this process. What do you know? What do you know is unknown to you? What help do you want? What do you have to offer?
This is just a brief outline of the success of HOPE. Are you ready to embrace HOPE and to become the epicenter of HOPE? Good. Then commit to you.
I ___________________________________________ do solemnly swear that I will do this 3 times per day or more to restore my hope during the day. I will bring calm and hope to those around me as well as myself.
