Yes Is an Invitation.

Yes is not always adventurous. Yes is not always reaching for more. Yes is not always stereotypically positive.

Yes is the ultimate allowing.

From your yes place—free of resistance—the aperture of time and space opens up; so much is possible. Invisible gifts become suddenly visible. The resulting practical transformations usually make life easier, richer, clearer.

Expand into Yes. Feel into the stretch if the newness is uncomfortable, or into the sweet relaxation of accepting all as it is, with observation and love.

Say yes with your heart, with your mind, and with your life, and invite a world of grace and good, like a morning sunrise, into your spacious heart.
