I want to tell you that everything is just ok as it is in this moment. What you are doing is enough. Who you are is enough. Simpicity can be profound and powerful. Relaxed & Present is where to start and then return to again and again. Breathe, let go, expand, connect. Be Zen, finding the beauty and chi in each daily task and encounter.
Is there an area where you have been striving, pushing, feeling overwhelmed? That is where you need to just let go right now. Let go. Once you let go, you can get clearer about what's at the core that you are seeking, wanting or needing. Then feel for the most simple direct way out or to that. Often it involves letting go of the strive & push and recalibrating your energy & focus to the simpler, smoother path. Where the path is smooth, the chi is stronger and clearer.
When I'm in a time of overwhelm, stress, heartache or other challenge, I use this mantra: "This is but a moment in time." This provides a relaxation rsponse and ability to shift into a different inner space.
We live in an amazing time and place. Nurture peacefulness by embracing and standing in wholeness with dichotomies. This will help you stay connected to your sacred center and The Sacred Center.
lots of love,

"Your soul knows the geography of your destiny. Your soul alone has the map of your future, therefore you can trust this indirect, oblique side of yourself. If you do, it will take you where you need to go, but more important it will teach you a kindness of rhythm in your journey." ~John O'Donohue
"One of the tasks of true friendship is to listen compassionately and creatively to the hidden silences. Often secrets are not revealed in words, they lie concealed in the silence between the words or in the depth of what is unsayable between two people." ~John O'Donohue
