“Love is the Experience of Selflessness within the Self.” — Yogi Bhajan
This morning as my alarm went off, I woke in anticipation of the day ahead. I was headed to the ocean — my favorite place. My spiritual practice these days consist of waking up at 5:30am and walking to the ocean for meditation.
As I dipped my feet into the warm sea I realized that when I pray or meditate I normally ask God for healing for someone or for helping me manifest something I have going on in my life.
As I was struck by this notion, I began to pray a prayer of thankfulness. I thanked God for Healing, Providing, Loving and caring for me. Then I continued to thank him for all of the healing he has provided to my friend in the hospital. As my friend Komang says, “Thank God for Everything!”
It is always easy to ask God for something, but how often do we say thank you?!? God has been so good to me. I was overwhelmed with joy and gratitude.
It is so important to love yourself. It is important to harness your own light and let it shine brightly through you so everyone else may see the light and learn to love too.
When I returned to the room, I drew the sunshine card. Yes! This was the perfect card for this moment. God makes us in His image. We are designed exactly how he wants us to be.......Radiantly Alive Beings!
Yogi Bhajan says, “Love is the experience within one’s self of one’s own selflessness; that’s why love is God. Human love is for one thing only: to love your soul. The Infinite world around you will be in love with you. Love is a process in which ego is lost and infinity is experienced. Love is a creative energy, an experience of one’s Self within oneself. Love knows no pain—no sacrifice is too much for it. Love is an absolute one-pointed state of mind, focused on the well-being of the other person, who is called lover or beloved. In love we honor. In love we grace people. In love we support. In love we sacrifice. In love we give. In love we elevate. In love we pray."
Today as you walk your path, I pray that you will go boldly. Live your life Selflessly not Selfishly. Hold your head high, smile and know you are exactly who you should be.
Peace, Love and Light 💜🙏💫

This card wants to remind you, that you, are a beautiful, powerful being. You are unique. If you worry or question yourself, please know, you are exactly right, just the way you are. Osho states: “You are not accidental. Existence needs you. Without you something will be missing in existence and nobody can replace it. That is what gives you dignity.” Seen like this, it is completely redundant to think negatively about yourself. If you are inclined to such self bashing, unravel the feeling behind it. Behind every irritation lurks an un- fulfilled expectation. Check inside: What do I expect from myself? Is that realistic? Is that justified? Be mild towards yourself, as mild as you would be towards a loved one. For your imperfections are perfect, your flaws make you fantastically human. Wear your scars with pride; they made you into what you are right now, nothing is lacking from that. Grant yourself the world. You have unlimited possibilities and only the best is good enough for you. You do not need to earn anything, you are worthy of everything. Why not draw a little sun on your hand today? Every time, you remember what a gloriously radiant being you are!
