We read this poem together, after dancing with the sunrise. We all took light and love with us and spread it around the rest of our days. I love waking up and turning on my light, my light shines from the inside. Shining bright for myself, and for other people. I usually do this through meditation, but sometimes I do it through dance. If you are in NY, LA or SF, you can join me by finding a Daybreaker event here.
"Every day, think as you wake up:
Today I am fortunate to have woken up.
I am alive; I have a precious human life.
I am not going to waste it.
I am going to use all my energies to develop myself,
To expand my heart out to others,
To achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings.
I am going to have kind thoughts towards others.
I a not going to get angry, or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can."
- H.H. The XVI Dalai Lama
