GRATITUDE OVERLOAD

gratitude overload “Be in a state of gratitude for everything that shows up in your life.” -Wayne Dyer

Sounds wonderful, what a great little quote, but easier said than done! Hard to remember and quick to forget. We tend to remind ourselves and each other all about gratitude during the major holidays when love and appreciation are in the air. As soon as the calendar page turns, it all disappears.

So the question is, how do we keep gratitude alive every moment of the day? Just like everything else in life, all it takes is practice. Practice makes permanent.

Wayne Dyer says “Be thankful for the storms as well as the smooth sailing. What is the lesson or gift in what you are experiencing right now? Find your joy not in what’s missing in your life but in how you can serve.”

Some say gratitude is when memory is stored in the heart and not in the mind. So when we think with our heart and not with our mind, we remain in a state of gratitude.

In the yogic philosophy of Patanjali and the Yoga Sutras we would look at the “nyama santosha” नियम सन्तोष which means the “practice of contentment”. In “contentment” we are thankful for everything we have, the life we have created, every one we come in contact with and everything that happens to us.

Poet John Milton says “Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world.”

We all need our little reminders, some of us more often than others. Whether it be it a book, a poem, the Yoga Sutras or a gratitude stone that you carry with you, use it to keep the practice of gratitude alive.

See you on the mat and as Ganesha would say, “Enjoy Life and Feed Your Rat!”

SUPERCHARGE YOUR AYURVEDA WITH BUTTER IN YOUR MORNING COFFEE OR TEA!

Bulletproof Ayurveda Coffee

There has been a lot of discussion recently in the media, social and otherwise, about a coffee/tea referred to as Bulletproof. Controversy sparks, every time a “new concept” arises.

The most common “opinion” that we have heard in the yoga community is that drinking Bulletproof is not “yogic” or “ayurvedic” and that it is too “kapha” provoking.

I would like to analyze these statement:

First of all, Bulletproof coffee / tea is a specific style of coffee / tea with the lowest toxin and highest performance. You brew it, and then blend unsalted, 100% grass-fed butter into it, along with an extract of coconut oil that improves brain energy. See the linked blog below for details.

Kapha has had a bad rep in the contemporary yogic and ayurvedic world as representing obesity, lethargy and laziness. The truth is far from it. Good kapha is the foundation of sustained energy, physical, mental and emotional, the type of energy that allows you to do wonders throughout the day and still be able to get a full night’s sleep (yes, we do need energy to get a good night sleep.)

Good kapha, in English, in terms of food, translates to good fat. As a matter of fact, ayurveda has been recommending, for thousands of years, starting the day with a few tablespoons of ghee (ghee is clarified butter). By the way, one of our private clients’ Aunt, who lives in India, has been adding ghee to her morning black tea for years. She is 70 years old now, still jogs and feels great.

We tend to confuse energy with stress. According to ayurveda, in today’s society, a lot of us are vata deranged. This means that we “move a lot”, mentally, physically and emotionally without enough focus and control. This is the result of us getting too much sugar in and not enough good fat.

So, decrease your vata derangement and increase your grounding kapha by adding Bulletproof to your daily routine.
