Looking Inward, I Change with Courage

Looking Inward, I Change with Courage // Rumi Quotes // Inspiration and Gentle Reminders for Women //  Motivational Quotes // Mompreneurs // Entrepreneurs

Looking inward, I change with courage.   

No longer am I the adolescent whose passion is to rule the world.

Mastering our inner landscape requires great courage - the terrain is uncharted and requires patience, faith, and devotion.  

I hear my heart crying out, needing my attention.  Wisely, I travel to the pulse that calls to me inward.

Every day, the practice is to be still, to listen, and to take guided intentional action.

Writing, reflection, creativity, and service to my higher calling are a priority. Everything else that does not serve the connected guidance from within is lovingly thanked, and dismissed.  Admittedly, there continues to be a lot of casualties!

My soul and my life are sacred experiences where "should haves, could haves, would haves" no longer live.  Attachments, obligations, and resentments no longer have their place here.  

Courageously, I temper any fear that arises knowing that the only part of the fear that exists is the useful kind, supporting my becoming, and informing me, reminding me to be ever present.  As you are called, please share the wisdom of your heart. <3

Where Ever You Stand - Be the Soul of That Place

Where ever You Stand, Be the SOul of That Place // Gentle Reminders for Women Who DO Too Much // Inspirational Quotes // Motivation for Women // Gentle Reminders

There is no argument that children are among life's many blessings.  

I've been blessed to be Mommy of 2 very dear souls, dropping in by divine order, and allowing my spouse and me to be sacred guardians of their upbringing. As of this post, my son is just about 10 years old, and my baby girl, 4.  

As I have the honor to watch them grow and bloom each day, one of the most interesting and rewarding experiences I have when with them is to witness their becoming.  

As they learn, grow and master their path, I get to watch with doting eyes, heart full of love, as they embrace who they've come to be.  Whether it is seeing them pick up an instrument for the 1st time (like the violin) or learning how to do long division, I marvel at their process of embrace.  

They embrace what is ~ not simply the object - like the instrument, or the math problem, but wholehearted, they go through the process of embracing themselves!

From never having touched or seen what they are learning, they begin to accept and integrate newness by being OPEN. As they learn and traverse the path of mastery, they embrace it and are then present to all that is available to them through the lesson itself.

It is a marvelous process that I love and am blessed to see each day!

Having my little ones as spiritual teachers have enabled me to reclaim the reminder that Rumi shared so long ago - that wherever I go, wherever I am, whatever I may be doing ~ I am to be One with the PRESENT, and therefore, with my WHOLE self, be the soul of that place.

What are you open to today?  How will you allow yourself to be the soul of the place where you stand?

Be Grateful for Whoever Comes

Be Grateful for whoever comes because each is sent as a guide from beyond.  Inspirational quotes for women // motivation for women // reminders of truth // Path of Presence.com

Sometimes, the guide that arrives may not be what you expect.  Visitors in our life have a way of teaching us what we need to know.  

The most powerful guides are often those that irk us most - the unfriendly neighbor, other children that tease us, the annoying driver that cut us off in traffic.

These guides are powerful because they remind us of the work we've still got to do.  If we remain open, we might learn that they are exactly what we need to remember the Truth of our being.  

The rude driver might remind us, for example, that we are not petty, and we can forgive easily.  If we are not reminded of this, then, we get to practice forgiveness and compassion!

Our annoying Auntie Mae, for example, might be present to teach us that patience, particularly to bite our tongue. Whomever that is, what ever it is, considering our visitors as teachers can help us better understand ourselves - like a self-study course on insight.  For the gift of appreciating this, I am grateful!

Who or what in your life that came as a disguised blessing are you grateful for?

Difficult Roads Often Lead to Beautiful Destinations

All the challenges I have ever had has made me stronger, more resilient ... brave.

My experiences, difficult as they may seem at the moment they were occurring had a purpose.  At the very least, they have fortified me to be who I stand today.

If you are facing a difficult situation today, you are not alone.  All that is influx is rearranging itself, conspiring to support us in becoming who we were always meant to be.

Let us count our blessings as the lucky ones to experience the wholeness of life in this situation now.  Amen.

An Attitude of Gratitude

Having an attitude of gratitude is the foundation to all things good.  Path of Presence // Heart-Centered and Balanced Approach to Mindful Social Media

Ever since I was a little girl, I was taught that your attitude determines your happiness in life.  Regardless of the adversity I've experienced, I have always held this lesson near and dear to my heart:  for all things, be grateful.  

Things go right?  Be grateful.  Things out of control? Be grateful?  Things falling apart? Be grateful.  

Being grateful is the key to all things good.

Honestly, by the time I was a teenager, I was tired of being grateful.  As a teenager, I could remember many things that I was living with that I didn't want to be grateful for - and still, gratitude had been such a foundational practice for me that I found myself giving thanks, even though I was rebelling from family and finding my way.

Today, I give thanks for this foundation.  

My Mom taught me well, to have an attitude of gratitude, regardless of comes my way.  It has been a foundation of abundance, perspective and healing for me.  This lesson continues to teach me that grace is always in the midst and that being grateful is the key to all things good.

My Soul is My Guide

MySoulisMy Guide on this path of presence

In times when we feel lost, we often look for advice from all around us.  We ask friends, families, mental health professionals.

Often times, solace is sought through escape:  we numb out, distract ourselves and look for a solution to our heart problems.

In times when it feels as though nothing is right, look within.

The answer is written on our hearts.  

Our soul is on mission here to reignite who we've come to be.  In order to truly live, let go of dear life.  

In times of challenge, when the last thing I want to go is let go, I heed this memory:  surrender, and let my soul be my guide

 

 

The Secret to Having It All is Knowing You Already Do

When I find myself upset, grumpy, or generally having a hard time, I remember to remember that life is a process, and I already have it all ~ I AM ALIVE!!!

Remembering this opens my hearts and I can breath again! The more I give thanks, the more conscious I become to the abundance that channels in me, through me and as me.

And then, I don't even remember why I was agitated in the first place! Who or what do you appreciate today that you want to claim in gratitude?

Feel the Fear - Do It Anyway

3 FeeltheFear-PIN.png

F.E.A.R.   FALSE EVIDENCE, Appearing Real...

Fear reminds us of our humanity.  

Fear, like pain, is a signal for us to pay attention.  It wakes us up to be conscious of our actions, words, deeds and intentions.

If you feel fear today, don't forget to look mindfully, pray ceaseless, and know that you always have a choice.  

Check in, feel it... if the still small voice says YES! (Despite what the ego says) - then listen and act as you are called.

No one ever found new lands without the willingness to leave the shore... <3

Courage is the Willingness to Act Inspire of Fear

Courage is the willingness to Act - Path of Presence - Evelyn Foreman

To be true to our soul's calling, we must be brave.

Live courageously, dear Heart, knowing that who we are today is a result of every decision we have ever made in our life:  every thought, every word, every action brings us to present.

...and all is well!

If you are on the cusp of a decision that feels overwhelming, take heart!  Be brave.  Have courage.  

Know that Spirit calls us ways that might feel terrifying.  If this is the case, and fear arises, take a breath ~ know that all is conspiring to help you grow.

Today, embrace that which is calling on your heart, and with courage, take action.  

Enough is a Feast

Enough is a feast - practice of gratitude - Path of Presence

We stick with the basics during our daily family dinner meal: a protein + greens and (usually) rice (After all, I am Asian ;-D). If we have dessert, fruit follows.

It is simple, but a feast b/c of the overflowing abundance that is love expressing in our lives...and WOW! I give thanks for that bounty! What feast shows up in your life??

Let's rejoice and give thanks together!

<3 Blessings, Evelyn

The Mindful Practice of Whole-Hearted Gratitude

Follow Your Heart

Follow Your Heart - The Mindful Path of Doing Your Thing, Path of Presence Evelyn Foreman

Relationships. Life adventures. Relocations. New beginnings. Entrances and exits. 

No one said that following your heart is ever an easy choice. 

There are days when we are confronted, face-to-face with our own fear, perceived, or otherwise ~ the FALSE evidence (appearing real) shows up. On days like that (like, perhaps, a Monday), distractions might arise to make you wonder why you are on this blessed path! 

Self-doubts rears it's lil head - second guessing and questioning whether you were in your "right mind" when you made the decision to follow your call... On days like these - perhaps today, if you feel other than completely aligned and centered, take a breath and remember just how connected you really are. 

Just for today, if you are not feeling TOTALLY CONNECTED within, know that you are connected to SO MANY who are having the same experience... and then, through a conscious, deep breath, the choice to return to your heart, and therefore to your center, is always available...and waiting! 

Join me in taking a breath (right now, in mid sentence :-D and remember: When all else fails, follow your wise heart ~ it knows the way.
