Life and Teaching Of The Masters Of The Far East by Baird T. SpaldingIn 1924 Spalding published the first volume of Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East. It describes the travels to India and Tibet of a research party of eleven scientists in 1894. During their trip they claim to have made contact with the Great Masters of the Himalayas, immortal beings with whom they lived and studied, gaining a fascinating insight into their lives and spiritual message. This close contact enabled them to witness many of the spiritual principles evinced by these Great Masters translated into their everyday lives, which could be described as miracles. Such examples are walking on water, or manifesting bread to feed the hungry party. These books have remained consistently popular with spiritual seekers, those interested in the philosophy of the East and those who enjoy a good story because of their accessible nature and easy-to-follow format.

How do you feel today? Most of us have good days and bad days. Days when we feel ready to take on the world, and days when we just want to curl up under the duvet. In fact, one of the most common questions I get from readers is exactly that: How do I start taking care of myself? Many readers worry about self-care becoming just another thing on their already long to-do lists. My suggestion here is to reframe it. See being kind to yourself as positive and beneficial.
Self care is critical to your overall well-being, and your well-being is important. Our lives are full of chronic stress. Stress leads to inflammation, and inflammation is at the root of many illnesses. Self care is about sticking up for yourself. As parents, we priortize our children, our spouses, and our work over ourselves. Practice it: NO.
Self-care, to the rescue!

Here are the stories that made us smile this week:
You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars. In the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. Last year I realized that I lived twenty-eight years without knowing what it really means to love and take care of myself. My husband and I bought a second home. I fully engaged myself in the improvements and the creativity of decorating a fresh canvas.
As you work on your recovery, you might want to write down some of your main goals. These goals can be short-term and easily achievable, or you can start identifying bigger, more long-term goals that you want to work your way towards. It's helpful to think of small steps to take toward them over a certain amount of time, like a week or a month. Remember to congratulate yourself for any successes. Achieving goals - even small ones - is a sign of hope and accomplishment. Consider your interests, things that bring you joy and things that keep you motivated. Also, think about the things you want, like where you want your life to go or what you would do more of if you could.
In my early 20s, it was easy for me to become a stressed out mess. I was always being easily affected by other people's "stuff," feeling guilty for doing certain things -- or not doing certain things. Always putting pressure on myself to try to do anything and everything that was asked of me. I was often trying to be putting other people's needs first before mine, because that's the idea I was taught growing up. The idea that "taking care of yourself is selfish" was so embedded in my mind and overall psyche that I had no idea how to live my life in another way. I was a total caretaker -- and a total codependent.
