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

ACTION STEPS

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 Dazzled by Beauty

Photo by Carol Gutzeit

There is a big difference between seeing beauty, and feeling dazzled by it. Being amazed by what you see uplifts your body, mind, heart and spirit. Beauty is the experience of love; the more you are dazzled by the beauty of life, the more love will flow through it.

“The radiance in some places is so great as to be fairly dazzling... every crystal, every flower a window opening into heaven, a mirror reflecting the Creator.” ~ John Muir

ACTION STEPS

To dazzle your senses all you need to do is spend time in nature where there is an infinite supply of beauty. When you walk in a forest remember to connect with the green lungs of Mother Earth. Breathe deeply to become dazzled by the gift of oxygen.

Your five senses make it possible to be dazzled by beauty. Use your sense of sight to see what is beautiful; use your sense of smell to enjoy nature’s sweet fragrance; use your sense of touch to feel the earth beneath your bare feet; use your sense...

Satori Wisdom ~ I Am Seeing Beauty

Photo by Dawn Peterson

True beauty comes from within as the outward expression of a beautiful soul. The soul defines beauty as being the best version of yourself. Look for the beauty in yourself, find beauty in others, and see the beauty in nature to have a beautiful life.

Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.” Coco Chanel

ACTION STEPS

Beautiful gemstones are formed in the earth's crust. These natural beauties are embedded in rock until someone finds them. Unearth the precious gems buried within yourself and others to discover the magical qualities that bring beauty to life. 

Beauty isn't necessarily defined by physical appearance. It's how people feel when they're around you that determines your authentic beauty. People may not remember your outer appearance but they will remember how they felt in your presence.

A beautiful mind sees the world through the perspective of love. The reason beauty is in the eye of the beholder is because you project your...

“Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God's handwriting.”  

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

The beauty of nature is in the air you breathe, the water you drink, the healthy food you eat, and the sun that illuminates all life on planet earth. Spend time outdoors as often as possible and breathe in natural beauty to get inspired.

Being kind and compassionate will inspire others to do the same. An act of kindness creates an energetic bond between the giver and receiver that...

Satori Wisdom ~ I Am Paying Attention

Where your attention goes, energy flows. Pay more attention to the positive than the negative and you'll be in the natural flow of life. Notice the beauty that is right in front of your eyes and you'll be using your energy wisely.

To pay attention, this is our endless and proper work.”  ~ Mary Oliver

ACTION STEPS

Mother Nature naturally draws our attention to her beauty. If you're too busy to notice, you're missing out on one of the greatest gifts of being human. All of your senses were designed to pay attention to the natural world. 

Pay attention to your positive thoughts. What you focus on expands so put your attention on what you want to see more of in your life. When you pay attention to what you don't want, you're wasting energy on worry. Shift your attention to what you do want to make good use of your energy. 

Give your body the attention it deserves. Aches and pains, fatigue and burnout, are some of the ways your body communicates....
