Today’s Body Connection: Maya Angelo once said to Oprah Winfrey, We can only do better if we know better.” Transformation begins with awareness.  When we acknowledge the need to shift, a light is turned on within our consciousness.   It could be the first moment when we put on our shirt and it doesn’t fit, or maybe when our belts need an extra hole.  We can tell ourselves that the “dryer monster” purposely shrunk our jeans, or we’re a little bloated from all the water we drank, but we know better.  It’s time to get moving and stop making excuses. We know it’s time to do “put downs and push a ways.”  Put down the fork and push away from the table.  No more, “I did not know,” or “No one told me.”  Your inner self is telling you.  You know, but have just turned a blind eye to the problem.  Today is your day to transform your life and it begins with the awakening.

Today’s Meditative Thought: The answer is always the same: we have forgotten our connection to God.  Maya Angelo’s statement, “We can only do better if we know better,” is our pathway to transformation.  You are the master of your existence and only you can transform your life.  You have power within you, and you always have.  Transformation is an inside job that can only be achieved by you.  Once you begin to take responsibility for your life, you will see the growth.

Today’s Action Plan:  Today, be the master of your existence and take charge of your life.  Take a moment before your practice, and own it.  You know better so you will do better.  Ask during your workout or you meditation, “How can I do better?”

Today’s Affirmation:  Just for this moment… just for this breath, I am the master of my destiny, and I am filled with infinite possibilities.  And so I am, and so I let it be.  Amen
