My philosophy and meditation guru, Jason Lamberth, dropped truth bombs like it was his job while we were in Bali together. He spoke with sincere conviction – making each statement land with such weight. Now that I’m back in Vancouver, I flip through my pages and pages of notes from our classes together to find one of these gems to consider while I meditate in the morning. My favourites thus far have been:
Let your shit entertain you. Not drive you.
Nothing can make you happier than you already are.
If you find the wisdom in pain, you can find the joy in it.
You can’t escape your own obsessions. You can only stop feeding them.
Wisdom and ignorance can’t be in the same mind at the same time.
It is no accident why I am experiencing what I am experiencing.
Don’t breathe because you want to do the asana better.
Don’t breathe because the teacher told you to.
Breathe because you love someone.
Others will attempt to piss you off, until you don’t attract people who piss you off.
The antidote for any tough situation is always ‘clean up your own shit.”
And, as he dropped these bad boys, he would always remind us that ‘nothing I say is true until you make it so.’
So take what you want, take what you need, and leave the rest.
Your Truth is yours.
Now, take a tall, comfortable seat….
