If you want to learn to use the right leverage at the right time watch trees.

Sometimes we are too busy doing.

Trying to achieve that goal.

Forcing things to happen.

Getting upset if we don't reach that deadline.

Watch the trees, they let go of their leaves exactly at the right time. Their leaves come back exactly at the right time.

There is nothing wrong about setting goals and intentions. Yet, do it deliberately and use your intuition as your guide.

Practice when to push and when to pull.

If you get out of balance, simply watch a tree and get back at it. Through consistent practice you start developing the wisdom to use the right leverage at the right time.

And by the way, the same applies to your goals and intentions.

Consistency is the magic stick!

Happy goal and intention setting!

The late Mark Twain said “There isn't time, so brief is life, for bickerings, apologies, heartburnings, callings to account. There is only time for loving, and but an instant, so to speak, for that.” What does this really mean? Does it mean that you have to prevent yourself from situations of bickerings, apologies and heartburnings? Denying a mistake or a time you have hurt someone’s heart? No! It means, regardless of all bickerings, apologies and heartburnings creating space to love. During an apology, removing fear and adding a little bit of love.

During heartburnings, showing yourself and others love through compassion.

During bickerings, holding a space for someone that needs to be loved. So brief is life, there is only time for loving. Lovely New Year!
