You are as magnificent as a majestic tree and as brilliant as the sun. Self-respect comes from identifying with your true nature and knowing why you're here. Simply share your unique gifts, talents, skills, and wisdom and you'll fulfill your purpose in life.

“Respect your efforts, respect yourself. Self-respect leads to self-discipline. When you have both firmly under your belt, that's real power.” ~ Clint Eastwood
Your ego wants you to believe that you’re not enough so that you’ll try harder. This belief sets you up for a lifetime of striving but never arriving, and that depletes your self-respect. Reclaim respect for yourself by realizing that you're already enough. 
Respect yourself for learning how to take care of your body without an owner’s manual. You’ve figured out what you need to be healthy by listening to your body. As an expert on your body you could very well write a manual...

Satori Wisdom ~ I Am Practicing Radical Acceptance

Rays of light break through the foggy illusion of control to reveal the beauty of radical acceptance. Accepting yourself, your life, other people and your true nature, is a radical concept. Through acceptance you’ll be empowered to initiate change as needed.  

“Radical acceptance is the willingness to experience ourselves and our lives as it is.”  ~ Tara Brach


Radical acceptance is a practice that allows you to live in a state of grace. It’s about pausing before responding to connect with your heart. Once you accept what is you reclaim your strength and gain the power to respond with love rather than fear.

Accepting yourself just the way you are is an act of self-love. It frees you from the false belief that you’re not good enough. The radical idea of total self-acceptance allows you to break the trance of your ego by letting go of anxiety about imperfection.

Accepting your life is a radical...

Satori Wisdom ~ I Am Finding Joy

Joy is your natural state. It's that spark of the divine that lives deep inside your heart and moves you towards the light of your highest potential. You'll find joy when you're fully engaged in the present moment.  

“Find ecstasy in life; the mere sense of living is joy enough.” ~ Emily Dickinson


Children know that joy is their true nature. It's easy for them to find their joy because it hasn't been covered up by years of struggle. Trade all of your struggles for joy and renew your childlike zest for life.

Life is not a problem to be solved, it's an adventure to be enjoyed. You'll discover joy when you put your attention on being alive. Notice how good it feels to experience every moment of your life for the first time. 

Joy is connected to meaning and purpose. It's how you feel when you're rising up to meet your full potential. When you remember what you came here to do, and start doing it, you'll experience the joy of living on...

You've been on a hero's journey since childhood. Its taken you from the illusion of separation to the initiation phase of answering the call to adventure. You will eventually return home to tell the story of how you found your true self.

“We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.” ~ Joseph Campbell


You are the hero of your own story and like any good story you have challenges to overcome to make it interesting. Your inner hero will help you move from one world into another with confidence and ease.

Separation is forgetting who you really are. It came from the programming and conditioning of adults who had also forgotten who they really are. At some point on your journey the hero within helps you remember your true nature.

Initiation is the adventurous part of the journey. This is when you get to turn challenges into victories and problems into opportunities. If...
