“We yearn for our independence not just so we can go where we want to and speak up when we want to, though that feels good. But that’s child’s play and ego-driven. The deeper part of us yearns to create, to fulfill whatever it is we were born to do—and that requires that we take charge of our own power of choice. Meaning and purpose is driven by the engine of choice, make no mistake about that.”

Today’s 10 minute Wisdom Recipe™:

Spend 10 life-affirming minutes doing the following:

  1. Find a quiet place and spend two minutes breathing deeply.
  2. Spend some time in thoughts and feelings of gratitude for something you’re experiencing right now, even if all you can give thanks for is your breathing.
  3. Acknowledge whether you feel empowered or drained. Get in touch with your body. What’s it telling you?
  4. Identify and commit to doing (or not doing) one thing by day’s end to eliminate energy drains from your life (lack of rest? caffeine? a person or project? an entire to-do list?)
  5. Identify and commit to doing (or not doing) one thing by day’s end to enhance your spirit … actually, make that TWO … you’ve already done one, today’s Wisdom Recipe™!

Please join the conversation and share your reflections about this post, the Wisdom Recipe™, and your own wisdom moments! There’s strength in community and community begins with you … and me!

Be Well … and WISE!

Every experience is a blessing and a lesson!

Other words of wisdom today:

“To attain true inner freedom, you must be able to objectively watch your problems instead of being lost in them,” says Michael Singer, author of the essential spiritual guide The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself.

Mark Nepo’s September 14th entry teaches that regardless what experiences life offers us: “[w]e cannot stop the flow of experience of the need to take it in. Rather, all our efforts must go into learning the secret … of transforming what we go through [into wonder, joy and something that sustains us].” p. 303, The Book of Awakening

So today remember that experience is often the best teacher; the question is are you a willing student?
