Karma and The Sacred Pause

Karma and The Sacred Pause

In a fast-paced world full of distractions and the constant pressure to achieve, produce, and consume, we need accessible practices that help us become more centered - more in touch with ourselves and others. Rather than withdrawing from the world, we can learn how to use the art of the Sacred Pause to awaken loving-kindness in a world that often feels unkind, accept uncertainty in a world full of unknowns, and enjoy our lives more fully and more peacefully even when it feels like things are falling apart. In this episode I explore a new way of thinking about Karma and the Sacred Pause as an introduction to a more centered way of life and service in the world.

What would it take to feel renewed every day? To not feel the FOMO, frenzy, and the overwhelming 'always-behind-the-eight-ball' feeling of modern life? Instead of waiting all year for a vacation to smooth out the bumps and tensions in life, instead of waiting until Friday night to shed  our weariness, what if we could take time out every day? Live a renewed life every day? Be refreshed, reinvigorated and re-inspired every day? 

The energy, new perspective, creativity and overall sense of harmony and well-being that results from a sacred pause is life changing - not just for ourselves but for those we love and care for. Sacred pauses teach us the true law of Karma - we create the world we want not from what we wish but from who we are. 

In this episode I share with you a reading from my personal library, Welcoming the Unwelcome: Wholehearted Living In A Broken Hearted World by Pema Chödrön, American-born Buddhist nun, beloved wisdom teacher and author of over twenty books.  

Book description:

In her first new book of spiritual teachings in over seven years, Pema Chödrön offers fresh wisdom, heartfelt reflections, and the signature humor and insight that have made her a beloved guide during turbulent times. In an increasingly polarized world, Pema offers us tools to find common ground, even when we disagree, so we can build a stronger and broader sense of community. Sharing never-before-told personal stories from her remarkable life, simple and powerful every day practices, and directly relatable advice, Pema leads the way in showing us how to become triumphant boddihsattvas - compassionate beings - even in the midst of the most difficult [times] and circumstances. 

This episode and book share is for you if you are:

  • Feeling the constant pressure to do more - achieve more, produce more, consume more, give more and have difficulty 'tuning out'
  • Feeling empty, uninspired, and saddened by the current state of world affairs
  • Yearning to reconnect with your authentic self, but can't find enough time in the day to even begin
  • Searching for more harmony, balance, peace, purpose and a sense of fulfillment in your life
  • Feeling the deep desire to serve others from  a place of joy and overflow, instead of exhaustion, regret or resentment
