Healthy relationship: love and change

Via on Feb 24, 2011

Take a breath, let it out. Tune in to your sensations and listen. Ask yourself:

How many times in a conversation I say the word “I”?

How often do I interrupt (by word or in thought) what others are saying to me…with the word “I”? Am I honoring what I feel? Am I honoring my freedom of choice? Am I honoring what others feel? Am I honoring their freedom of choice? Can I be with myself or do I need constantly the company of another? Do I blame others for my own suffering? Do I always think others are here to get me? Do I live in projection of how others judge me?

Allow me to change your perspective. After being honest with yourself with your answers, tell yourself:

From now on,  conversations will not include the word “I”.  Example: “Meeting you has been a joy” instead of  “I am happy to meet you”; or “Having you as a friend is a beautiful gift” instead of “I want the beautiful gift of your friendship”; or “You are needed” instead of “I need you”. (Unless, of course, you really need to talk only about what “I” wants, needs, and has done, stop talking about yourself.)

Listen. Honor what you feel. Honor your freedom of choice. Honor how others feel. Honor others’ freedom of choice. Learn to be with yourself so you have something enlightening to give to others. Stop blaming others for your suffering and take responsibility of yourself.  Learn how to trust in your own radiant energy.  Stop looking at yourself through the eyes of others.

There is only one successful way of communicating: Love. There is only one Ultimate Truth: Change.

Stop trying to change others and change yourself until your life is full of grace, love and real happiness.

Let go.



About Yesica Pineda

My name is Yésica Pineda-Moreno, though some people call me Yeye. I was born and raised in Mexico City. My mom and dad are wonderful people who raised me to believe that loving-kindness, peace of body, mind and soul ~ real happiness ~ are the only worthwhile goals in life, the rest is just history. At the age of 20, I was chosen a Mexican Musical Talent (Valores Juveniles = American Idol) between thousands of young people in the country. Such opportunity gave me the chance to travel to The United States and meet incredible famous people from whom I've learned plenty about the hard work involved in the public life and the challenges it represents to our spiritual growth. I recorded my solo album with 10 time’s Grammy winner engineer Rafa Sardina, and the talented songwriter Rafa Esparza-Ruiz. You can find it in any digital store by searching "Yeye Organic Pop". When I thought there was nothing else to be achieved, I found Yoga, or Yoga found me. In 2000, I started training with Bryan Kest and educated myself in his school of Power Yoga, which eventually led me to the practice of Vipassana meditation with teacher S.N.Goenka, training which I consider my foundation. For more information about my Yoga Practice visit My current music project is called Planetary Moods ~ Pop Sanskrit and the exploration of different frequencies resonance. You can hear my music on on myspace Listen at our website Planetary Moods.

    ~ thank you for this…. it takes so much effort and practice to "get" it. Having a beginner's mind helps, since in the beginning it's all about them. Funny how ego dissolves when love strikes :)
