A good life

 

is when you assume nothing,

do more, need less,

smile often,

dream big,

laugh a lot,

and realize how blessed you really are.

Rachel Brathen

Rachel is a yogi on a world tour. Born and raised in Sweden, she currently resides in the beautiful island of Aruba where she is busy teaching yoga at a resort in the mornings, coordinating retreats at noon, taking her three somewhat crazy dogs to the beach to keep up with the surf in the afternoon and trying to survive as a vegan (where no vegetables grow!) in the evenings. She firmly believes that life is not black or white – it’s black and white and blue and yellow with rays of pink and sparkle in between. You can teach yoga and still be a party animal. Meditate and ignore your spending problems. Be vegan and eat too much chocolate. Have a Swedish passport and live in the Caribbean. You can do anything, as long as it’s you! You can find Rachel on the beach, probably practicing her Astavakrasana, or on facebook.com/rachelsyoga.

This is exactly what a good life is all about. Thanks Rachel. Just a few words, but they said it all 🙂

…a meaningful life
a conscious relationship
everything connected
you are not living a good life
you are a good life
wide awake and moving
out from the head, out from the heart
into the world
in service
to the good in all life
and your part in its healing and thriving.

I enjoyed coming across this. Thank you for doing meaningful life work on the beaches and good luck with finding vegetables.
