we are always on route yet perfect where we are

we are always on route yet perfect where we are

We are by nature always in motion. From our waking hour to our return to sleep each day, each month, each year. From our birth to our death.  No matter what we do, where we go, who we share experiences with or what they are, the motion is life. Even in the present moment that we are in. Every inhale is fresh life and every exhale becomes the past.

Keeping peace in our motion, takes practice. As the days in India are coming to a close, agitation has been on the rise. Between getting the details organized for travel, too much thought towards days that are not yet mine or already reminiscing on ones that have been recently spent brings lots of mental irritations. Hmm.. hello old friend.

Fortunately with a little help from the breath,  I’m reminded that the most important journey in life is the one that unfolds between the head and the heart. This brings me clarity and understanding of what is important. And as the heart has a profound grasp of the present moment, there you’ll find me, timelessly present here until there.

Thanks for taking the time to read my letters. I hope some of these reflections or lessons shared bear fruit or act as a mirror of your true magnificent life’s unfolding.

With love, a lotus and a smile

ps. In the last email I shared that while breathing through the nostril is cool on the right and warm on the left. I wrote that wrong. They are actually warm on the right and cool on the left. Such a profound complex miracle the human body is. ;-)

On the topic of retreats, a friend recently shared scientific research she found (brain scans incl. long term studies of individuals) comparing mindfulness/meditation practice in retreat settings confer more benefits than daily practice. If you take two individuals with identical lifetime hours of meditation practice, there are more lasting changes in people who have gone on retreats (brains and behaviour).

This week I was thinking about how challenging it can be to be who we are and live in our place of heart when there are so many directives and expectations that we should behave in a particular way. How we present ourselves to the world and how we think are so influenced by our upbringing, peers and culture...

Mindful Necessities West to East
Mindful Necessities West to East

by Gisele Theriault April 21, 2019

Rumi says "Let the beauty of what we love be what we do." I'm counting my blessings, both having carved a life by creating contemplative jewellery and now also enjoying the opportunity to create experience for people though retreats. 

 It took a long time for my body and mind to readjust from east to west, as it always does. Between the 10 hour time difference and the culture extremes, the practice of coupling patience and tenacity definitely came in handy.
