✨ Meditation isn’t all flowers and sunshine and feeling aligned on the path of enlightenment. Sometimes, when we sit still and notice, what we see is sadness, or loneliness, or unhappiness. That’s okay. ✨ ✨ ✨ We’re not trying to change anything, we’re only trying to observe, and to be present in, reality as it is. ✨ ✨ ✨ I’ve had students tell me that they didn’t think meditation was ‘working’ because when they sit, they don’t feel ‘better’. But that’s just fine! We’re simply checking in. ✨ ✨ ✨ All those things about meditation causing less stress, more happiness, etc are all true — but it’s over time, with a continued practices, and gradual changes. Keep meditating! Even if it’s not all flowers and sunshine. ✨ ✨ ✨ xo, Liza ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sometimes after the rain is before the rain and before the rain is after the rain. . Winter in Perth is like April weather in Germany or the Netherlands. Very volatile, a lot of showers and temperature changes. . So you get out with sunscreen on and sunglasses and go back when it starts pouring down. . There is a time for everything and if I've learnt something then it's that life works in circles. . Not always the same, always different as we are learning, growing and evolving. But then we're up for the next level and the circle starts again. . Just like with the rain and the sunshine. Both equally important and nourishing.
