“Do not judge me by my success, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.”  ~ Nelson Mandela

The art of being timeless begins with changing limiting beliefs that keep you stuck in a persona of who you used to be. As you step into the image of who you are becoming your true essence will naturally shine through. It is your light that makes you timeless. 

“The timeless in you is aware of life's timelessness. And knows that yesterday is but today's memory and tomorrow is today's dream.” ~ Khalil Gibran

ACTION STEPS

Life is timeless and yet constantly changing. It releases one season to embrace the next without clinging to its past. Think of your own life as advancing confidently from season to season with the ability to accept change and graciously move forward. 

For your body to have the quality of timelessness you must treat it like a prized possession that gets better with age. The value of a car goes up when it becomes a classic. Your body is worth more every year as long as you’re investing in its health.

Photo by Carol Gutzeit

Nature is the best example of what living in harmony means. She is always there for you, her health supports your own and her very existence is essential to life. The best way to appreciate these miraculous blessings is to live in your natural state of harmony.  

“Don't live by your own rules, but in harmony with nature.”  ~ Epictetus

Your mental self is associated with the element of fire. This element...

“But it turns out that people who are grounded and secure don't change much under stress. That's what being grounded means.”  ~ Michael Gruber

Make connections that uplift, energize, elevate and inspire you to become the highest version of yourself. Connect with nature to feel uplifted; connect with creativity to feel energized; connect with heart-centered humans to feel elevated; and connect with your soul to feel inspired.

The journey from the ego to the soul is one of growth, empowerment, awakening, and connection. It’s your ego that has limitations while your soul remains limitless. This sacred journey is not for the faint of heart; it requires the strength of infinite love and the power of introspection to complete it.

It’s easy to be in the zone when you’re living in a state of love. Love has a long attention span while fear has a short one. When you’re loving your body, your life, other people and the beauty found in nature, you have entered the zone of true happiness.     

“One of the strongest signs of being in the zone is a sense of freedom and authenticity.”

~ Ken Robinson

It’s natural to be in the zone. To feel one with what you’re doing comes from full body awareness, intense mental focus, heart-centered engagement, and a joyful free spirit. You’ll know you’ve arrived when you love who you are and enjoy what you’re doing.

The physical zone of body awareness naturally brings you into the moment. Conscious breathing is one way to connect your mind with your body to become fully present. The more you love your body with conscious breathing, the easier it is to enter the zone.

Satori Wisdom ~ I Am Whole

harmony wholeness Aug 11, 2021

Your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual energy is similar to horsepower. If you lose energy your human vehicle will not have the power it needs to run efficiently. When all four parts are operating together in harmony, you experience wholeness. 

“The cure of many diseases remains unknown to the physicians of Greece because they do not study the whole person.” ~ Socrates

ACTION STEPS

A whole person sees the body, mind, heart and spirit as equal partners in the business of being human. If one part is undervalued this causes a breakdown in the whole system. Be sure to give all four partners the sustained attention they deserve. 

Your body is in charge of your physical well-being with its innate power to heal and regenerate. Think of the last time you cut your finger and how your skin naturally healed. Trust your body’s intrinsic ability to maintain health and restore wholeness.

Your mental well-being depends on the power of your mind to use both...

Satori Wisdom ~ I Am Unique

Photo by Christy Gutzeit

You are as unique as your soul blueprint. The uniqueness of your true self is based on life experiences. Learning something new, especially about yourself, adds another dimension to your special gifts and life purpose that only you can bring to the world.

“Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.” ~ Margaret Mead

ACTION STEPS

Your uniqueness is based on authenticity, commitment, centeredness, and compassion. The way you express these qualities determines your one of a kindness. In a world where everyone is more alike than different, being unique is simply you being YOU. 

Authenticity is what makes you an original. Even though you may look similar to another human, especially if you have a twin, there are still distinctive differences. Physical appearance is an expression of your unique soul that no one else can duplicate.

Make a commitment to being your unique self. Start by training your mind to focus on ways...

To be superhuman you need serenity to cultivate the superpower of mental clarity. This superpower aligns your body and mind with your heart and spirit to live in harmony. This raises your level of awareness from being conscious to superconscious. 

“Calmness is a human superpower. The ability to not overreact or take things personally keeps your mind clear and your heart at peace.”  ~ Don Miguel Ruiz 

ACTION STEPS

Being superhuman takes discipline in order to transcend the ego and allow your soul to take charge of your life. The ego is your personality and the soul is your spirituality. You need stamina, commitment, courage and integrity to be extraordinarily human.

Stamina comes from the discipline of daily exercise and eating healthy. One of the superpowers of a superhuman is to be super health-conscious. Every move you make, every bite you take, determines the level of your physical vitality and overall wellbeing.
