Sacred Sunday: Words of Wisdom

A Beautiful Quote:

“You hold in your hand an invitation:

To remember the transforming power of forgiveness
and loving kindness.

To remember that no matter where you are and what you face, within your heart,

peace is possible.”

~ Jack Kornfield

Quote of the Day: Pema Chodron



“If we learn to open our hearts, everyone,  

including the people who drive us crazy,

can be our teacher.”


~ Pema Chodron


Women ~ Health ~ Inspired Eco Living: Book Review

Book Review

I am re-reading “A Thousand Names For Joy:Living in Harmony With The Way Things Are by Byron Katie with Stephen Mitchell.

When I am feeling “all tangled up emotionally”, reading this book (based on the Tao de Ching), never fails to soothe.

Every time I read this book, I feel I go deeper with the concepts and with my own learning.

I can understand how someone may have a problem with the content too, as it causes one to challenge what we think to be true.

I highly recommend this book for anyone on a journey of personal growth and inquiry.

The Beauty of Meditation

Meditation creates ‘pure space’ between thoughts and feelings.

It allows one to detach from strongly held beliefs that no longer serve.

Meditation is ‘spring cleaning’ for the mind.

Topaz Lotus Eco Living: Sacred Spiritual Practice


On the days (and I try for most mornings), that I complete my sacred spiritual practice, I find that the day unfolds more smoothly and mostly effortlessly.

Here is what I find fulfilling:

1. I start with a slow fluid sun salutation or some other gentle yoga postures.

2. Spiritual reading by authors such as Pema Chodron, Byron Katie, Eckhart Tolle, Deborah Adele is next.

3.  I have created a scrap book of beautiful images of gardens and landscapes and I often look through this.

4,  The 13 Moon Natural Time Calendar is a way of viewing time that fits for me as a woman who has lived by natural cycles, and I generally check to date according to this Mayan type calendar.

5.  I finish with some meditation.  Some days it is a couple of minutes and more often it is 10 minutes or so.

This wonderful start to my day usually takes 15 – 20 minutes and I just feel so much more depth to living and heart centered when I start my day with this sacred spiritual practice.
