Bright and Beautiful Newsletter
Chill Out, Yo.
Hi from Mia Park
"Take three things off your calendar every week." Judith Hanson Lasater

Is it time to relax, yet?
My mom is so tightly wound that she often asks for permission to use the bathroom. "Can mommy go pee?" To which I answer, "Mom - GO PEE. Why are you asking for permission to pee?! JUST GO PEE." I used to not understand why she needed permission to do what is her inherent right. 

Since the kimchi doesn't fall far from the jar, I realize that I share my mom's bizarre behavior of thinking that I need to seek permission to do what is my inherent right. I often ask myself "Can I relax?" To which I answer, "Mia - RELAX. Why are you asking for permission to relax? JUST GO RELAX."

If you also think that you need permission to rest, kick back, enjoy life more and chill out, consider your permission officially granted. Chill out, yo. You're welcome.
Read This Book

"The Yoga Sutra's message is simple and straight forward: Remove the veil of darkness and allow your intrinsic luminosity to illuminate both your inner and outer worlds." My master teacher Pandit Rajmani Tigunait wrote this book that shares practices which reveal your intrinsic luminosity.

The painting at the top of this newsletter is the Saturn yantra painting byChanti who teaches yantra painting this October in Chicago.
