This is a post from another wonderful new discovery – Val Boyko and her Find Your Middle Ground blog. Ah, something resonates about waking up with gentle affection. Thanks, Val.

Believe in the goodness of your soul.
Acknowledge how well it has guided you.
And yet know that you will fall asleep along the way.
When you sleep,
Take no delight in blaming yourself.
Take delight in waking yourself up once more.
Self blame is the deepest injury,
The deepest sleep of all.
Wake yourself up with gentle affection.
Yogi Amrit Desai
I love this perspective :)
In the highs and lows of life, its all too easy to become disconnected from our inner Presence.
We fall further asleep when we blame or criticize ourselves and cannot see our innate goodness.
May we all take delight in waking up with gentle affection…
