Faith & Surrender

Hello Loves,

I hope you all are doing as well as possible and settling into this time. I feel like the initial shock has passed and the resiliency of humans is helping us to find some new “normals” for this time. Whatever you are feeling is valid. I hope you are being extra gentle and extra loving with yourself and whatever other humans are close by to you these days. I have days where I feel calm and grateful for this slowed down period and days where I feel all the other things! I know how good I have it and I remind myself to come back to gratitude and trust.

Faith is going to get us through this time. Faith is what gets us through any challenging times. Faith and surrender. This is what is happening. Ok. I may not like it but I can try to accept it. I trust the process of life.

Time still goes fast and in some time soon we will look back at this period and say “Wow." "Wow and that was _______________________!$#*(^#$%&!!! !” It’s like a graduate Ph.D. program we're in right now of life and spirituality. That’s really all I keep coming back to. It’s the spiritual teachings that will get us through the tough periods of life.

We can’t hold on to the things of the world because they are all temporary, and all passing. I’m quarantined at the beach,  an amazing place to be right now. Building sandcastles with my son and then watching the ocean come and washing them all back into the sea. Just like life. I’m a builder and I love to build. Maha Rose is my first baby and it’s been such a dream building her and watching her grow. I’m definitely attached to her and hope she stays for many years to come but I remind myself that she too will be washed back into the sea someday.

I think we will get through this time and come out on the other side. I hope we will and I thank you all who are coming to workshops and booking sessions and buying gift certificates. Your love and support are felt and so appreciated. I’ve taken a few classes and taught a few classes myself and it’s amazing the community, learning and experience that can be felt through technology.

Get your tools on. Reach out if you need help. Surrender as much as you can. Release the need to control. Ask for guidance. Ask for help. Keep praying. Keep praying. Keep praying.

We love you,
Lisa & Maha Rose

    Here's one of my all-time favorite photos of Maha Rose, taken by Monica Kapoor. Our door in the fall, circa 2010, the shadow of the tree that I watched grow over the years. Here with no leaves, having let go completely, surrendering to the next season of change and growth.

  • A Letter from Padma

    I pray that in these difficult times in New York and the world, that everyone finds the spirituality they need to feel loved and connected. This virus will not exist forever, but while we are all in this collective lesson, let us listen deeply to the messages that mother nature and our spirits are giving us. May we have the courage to grow into what is the next right step for each one of us, shedding more of the false identites that cloud our purity and goodness. Even in a time of so much chaos, the invisible love and gentle caresses of the great absolute spirit are there within each one of us, supporting us through it all.
