Learning to Swim

Hello Loves,

I hope you are doing okay and riding the waves of this year as well as possible. In speaking with friends, family and colleagues this week I'm amazed at how much we all are being squeezed, tumbled and stretched... Somehow I felt a little better knowing we all are going through it. All of us. In the washing machine of life, on high. All the dirt, all the shadows, coming to the surface, individually and collectively. We are all being asked to grow so much. 

When we say yes to the tumbling there is less suffering. When we say yes to the suffering it lessens. Feeling into the shadows. We move through things faster when we are willing. Willing to grow. Saying yes to all the curve balls life sends us. Trusting God. Even in the free fall. Even when the ground beneath us shakes.

We've had earthquakes here this past month. The earth is shaking. Resetting. We're all being reset, individually and collectively.

My teacher says, “For one who knows swimming, being in the ocean is a delightful game. But one who doesn’t know may even drown.”  We need to learn how to swim. We can learn. We must learn. I don't anticipate this year getting any easier. 

Is it an amazing time for spiritual growth? YES. Committing to the inner work we can make amazing progress internally. 

We have online workshops, remote healing sessions and community offerings to assist you on this rocky path.

Love,
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.
