The Who of You… January 14, 2011

The who of what we are is very much predicated upon how we talk to ourselves.  (Bare with me here for a minute… ) So I was wondering; How do you talk to yourself when you look in the mirror? These private moments are usually when , as I put it, our chattering monkey comes out. You know, that little voice of judgement. The one that says… “Eeewww you’ve gained weight!” or “Are you kidding me? Have I really got those bags under my eyes and over my thighs!!!”  We tend to judge ourselves because something else deeper is really going on.  And then we become our human punching bag.

So then I wonder what would happen if you simply looked and said gently, “How spectacular that I’m here today.” Now I know that might not be so easy but how about, “Sheew, I actually made it out of bed”… You get the idea.  Make it organic for your positive (anabolic)  Zsuzs!  The thing here is that we start to believe our own self talk.  You know the expression,”We are our own worst enemy?  I invite you to re-frame that to, “We are our own best friend!”

When I was a little kid I was given the most amazing privilege to work with a marvelous director.  He told us to look in the mirror everyday and give ourselves a BIG HUG!  Then kiss ourselves from our finger tips on up each of our arms.  Then say,”I. Love. Me!”  Now remember I was a little kid about about 10.  Little did I realize just how important that was to the formation of a mind.  Now I invite you to do the same.  You may feel exceptionally silly at first but after a while you just might see.

Because if you are not passionate about you…. Who will be?

Who of you… January 7, 2011

I have written before about the Zen Buddhist word Mehta or Maitri the words for unconditional love for one’s self. The meditation practice is a practice of loving kindness. It starts with someone who is the easiest to love, then it shifts to oneself and then moves out to the person who is the most difficult to love. So then with great practice even if you were say, being robbed you would still have great loving kindness for the robber.

These thoughts lead me to the thought of how do we cultivate the most loving, compassionate, passionate relationship on this 3rd dimensional planet….? We started with, You! How can you love someone else until you love yourself unconditionally however you are.  So I invite you during this next week when you find that you are letting your chattering monkey get away, stop yourself and ask,”Where are my feet?” then. “Who takes care of me the best?” YOU! You are the only who can know you the best!


I will write more on this topic in my next “Who of You”.  Again Who is your most passionate partner?…. You?


Love and Pink Light
