Mudita. Sympathetic or unselfish joy. When you feel so happy for someone else's good fortune. Last weekend my stepdaughter married the love of her love. Filled with mudita for her and her man. #connection #mudita #thisisyoga #buddhistyogi

Hey everybody! I've been gone for a minute, but it was nice to log back on and see all the people who were still keeping up with my journey into wisdom and joy! 
I've had a very tough 2017. But I'm ready to leave it behind! I'm so ready to begin cultivating kindness and compassion for everyone I meet, even those who do not have the same kindness and compassion for me. I'm learning to forgive. In many ways, I'm starting from scratch, and that's a really cleansing feeling. What are some ways in which you all want to grow in 2018? How are you going to incorporate the dharma into your everyday practices, even when things get hard?

Along with traditional four elements of the love - loving kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity - there are two more elements: respect and trust.  These elements can be found in the four, but it helps to mention their names. When you love someone, you have to have trust and confidence. Love without trust is not yet love.  Of course, first you have to have trust, respect, and confidence in yourself.  Trust that you have a good and compassionate nature. You are part of the universe; you are made of stars.  What you look at your loved one, you see that he is also made of stars and carries eternity inside.  Looking in this way we naturally feel reverence. True love cannot be without trust and respect for oneself and for the other person. - #thichnhathanh .

The third element of true love is the capacity to offer joy. When you know how to generate joy, it nourishes you and nourishes the other person. Your presence is offering, like fresh air, or spring flowers, or the bright blue sky.

#thichnhathanh wrote in "Transformation & Healing"
Joy (sanskrit: mudita) is the joy which arises from the joy of others, but also the feeling of well-being which arises in ourselves. Mudita is one of the four unlimited minds; love, compassion, and letting go are the other three. The seeds of #mudita are in all of us. Only when we have #joy in our lives can we be #happy and have the means to share our happiness with others...If #peace and joy are in our hearts, we will gradually bring more peace and joy to the world.  #yogajoy #muditayoga #kelsijoy #kelsijoyyoga

2 years ago, I went to visit Joseph @thetiedyeyogi at his house in NY.  He was so kind and generous to show me his home his garden his crystals and his magical lab - his sunflowers🌻 were bigger than my face.  My sister also was so kind and generous to drive me all the way 4 hours each way for this day trip to make magic.  Two years later just 2 weeks ago, Joseph opened his home to me and shared his time to make beautiful things together - he called it #colortherapy - there is one piece I love in particular - though every piece really was tied by him with his masterful skills - I get to pick the colors 🌈⚡️🤗 (also mixed by him!! 💃🏻) - there was one extra special one that he intended to make it into a #superhero bodysuit - and so sorry, that one is #notforsale 🤣🤣🤣 #friendship #love #foliage #art #collaboration #cocreation #healing #crystal #art #kimono #beauty #nature #trust #karuna #mudita #sunflower #2015 #2017 #family #soundhealing #bodysuit #kimono #exquisitelyjoy #losiento

Laghuvajrasana.....
In yoga asana practice and meditation, bhrumadhya drishti is a Sanskrit term that refers to focusing one's internal gaze on the third eye center, a point described variously as between the eyebrows or just above that point. In Sanskrit, bhru means “eyebrow,” madhya means “center” and drishti translates as “seeing,” “gaze” or “eye.” In general, drishtis are the points of focus that can be viewed only mentally as with bhrumadhya, or they are locations that can be seen, such as the tip of the nose or the hands. Focusing on a drishti serves as an aid, blocking distractions, helping concentration, and making it easier to meditate and hold a pose.#yoga#presence #power#intuition#dristi #life#health#strength#body#wholeness#stretch#openheart#anahata#chakras#essence#mudita#ajna #retreat

Inverted Love. I tripped over this video where French dancers Les Twins stated they measured their fame by the numbers of haters they attract. The phenomenon ‘haters’ itself is kind of American to a European mind, but it resonates with me. In the 90s I passionately hated a film director, Gus van Sant. But I ran and saw all his films from Drugstore Cowboy to Psycho and was furious about him all the time. Les Twins reminded me of that because they said something like, ‘nobody tell us what to do, because we are going to be ourselves. And the best is if people hate you for that. Because when they hate you, they actually truly love what you are doing.’ Yesterday I posted something on fb: I hold that life is bliss. So, why then, if life in its essence is bliss, does it often seem to be the opposite? Lately I have been reading a lot of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s stuff, in fact I have been asked to translate him into German. He really is the king of simple metaphors, like this one: There are two aspects to reality, the unmanifest and the manifest. Life in its unmanifest state is ultimate Bliss Consciousness, but in its manifest state which presents itself in the innumerable variations of creation the bliss remains latent, saying it gets covered up. Maharishi compares these two aspects to water, which in its essential nature is fluid and transparent. But when it freezes, when it changes to ice, it becomes temporarily solid and cloudy.

So here is my take on this: When you practice, meditate, do your Asanas, you do not retreat from the world. Actually you enter the world, your world. You confront yourself with all the good, the bad and the ugly that is there. And sometimes it gets hard, unbearable. Then it is good to simply have the knowledge that beneath it all you are, always were, and always will be okay. Don’t even be afraid of your own negativity. It’s not who you really are.
