Recently the most powerful words I have read were this 'You were born to be real, not the ideas of perfection that you have in your head.' I know not who the author of these words is or was, but I would like to show my gratitude for them as they struck a chord within me that said - it is ok, lie back, close your eyes and think that you are beautiful. Take pause and listen to your heart, give your heart the space to sing to you and listen, listen, listen. You deserve these moments.
I was born in Essex, UK 1972, to a wonderful working class family that loved this bundle of a little girl. Through my life so far the world has shown me so very much, love, heartache, pain, joy, tears and rainbows. There has been violence, deceit, struggle, death, addictions, loss, rejection, trauma and pain. There has been discovery, love, joy, truth, excitement, explorations, energy, friendships, forgiveness, growth and moments of complete peace. Life for me so far has been replete, full in one way or another. And for the last 14 years there has been YOGA, this in so many ways has saved me and taken me on much wider discoveries. At this time I give to you this recording made in Kathmandu several years ago, and gives the gift of pause. Take it, share it, and listen to your heart, listen listen listen, see that you were born to be real, and that in that you are beautifully perfect.
Wishing you all the greatest journey of recognizing your beautiful selves.
