Be Gentle with Yourself

Be Gentle with Yourself By Jafree Ozwald & Margot Zaher

“In a gentle way, you can shake the world.”  ~Gandhi

How often are you gentle with yourself?  Perhaps you have pondered this idea, yet never knew how to implement it.  We will teach you how, it is easy!  First we invite you to truly wonder what your life would be like if you were just a little more gentle with yourself.  This means that if you screw up in life, miss your exit on the freeway, or even lose your cool with your mate, that you treat yourself with more loving kindness and gentleness.  We invite you to explore this experience all throughout this week.  Notice how many times in a day you are “hard on yourself”, and see what happens when you gently replace that hardness with gentleness.

Live your life gently.  Be more like water.  Water is soft, flowing, and yielding, yet with time and direction it can cut through any solid metal or rock.  Look how simple yet powerful the river is that flows through the Grand Canyon!  With this new commitment to being gentle with yourself, you’ll soon see how easily you slice through any hardness inside.  It is this hardness that creates arguments and eventually dis-ease in one’s life.  Remember that the human body is made up of 65% water, and 70% of the brain is pure water!  Four hundred gallons of water are recycled through our kidneys each day.  Your life truly is more fluid than you think it is.

"Nothing is so strong as gentleness, nothing so gentle as real strength.”  ~St. Francis de Sales

This moment contains the possibility of a miracle because YOU have the choice (right now) to respond to your life and everyone in it differently. This conscious ability to respond to others from a more enlightened, free, gentle and loving space comes from practicing these qualities with oneself.   Others treat you how you treat yourself.   When you are constantly being gentle with yourself, others will only be gentle with you.  This gentle energy of self-love is MUCH more productive than anything else you can do with your time here on Earth.  No amount of therapy is going to fix you if there is no self-love.  Gentleness is the doorway to loving and truly caring for yourself again. 

"Be gentle and you can be bold." ~Lao Tzu
