The Best Way to Deal with Dissatisfaction (It’s Not What You Think)
Tiny Buddha
by Yael Teramel
4d ago
“Trying to change ourselves does not work in the long run because we are resisting our own energy. Self-improvement can have temporary results, but lasting transformation occurs only when we honor ourselves as the source of wisdom and compassion.” ~Pema Chodron, The Places That Scare You In my late thirties, I was a yoga teacher and an avid practitioner. I lived by myself in a small but beautiful studio apartment in Tel Aviv, Israel, right next to the beach. Every morning I woke up in my large bed with a majestic white canopy and said a morning prayer. I meditated for an hour and practiced pr ..read more

I Cheated on Him with My Higher Self (and We’re Still Going Strong)
Tiny Buddha
by Jolinda Johnson
5d ago
“It’s okay to let go of those who couldn’t love you. Those who didn’t know how to. Those who failed to even try. It’s okay to outgrow them, because that means you filled the empty space in you with self-love instead. You’re outgrowing them because you’re growing into you. And that’s more than okay, that’s something to celebrate.” ~Angelica Moone “How could you do this to me? It’s obvious you’re with someone else.” That was the third and final message I received from my partner of nearly three years, several weeks after we had finally decided to break up. I say “we” because initially it seemed ..read more

You Have Just Five Minutes Left to Live – What Are Your Deathbed Regrets?
Tiny Buddha
by Martin O'Toole
6d ago
“Yesterday was heavy—put it down.” ~Unknown Death is still taboo in many parts of the world, yet I must confess that I’ve become fascinated with the art of dying well. I was thinking about the word “morbid” the other day, as I heard someone use it when berating her friend for his interest in better preparing for death. The word’s definition refers to “an unhealthy fixation on death and dying,” but who gets to define what’s healthy? And why are so many of us keen to avoid discussing the inevitable? We talk about death from time to time on our podcast, and it’s through this work that I’ve been ..read more

“A great marriage is not when the ‘perfect couple’ comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.” ~Dave Meurer  My husband and I will soon be celebrating our eleventh anniversary.

Over our eleven years of marriage, I’ve recognized a few critical areas needed to build a solid and lasting union as a couple. Here are eleven things I’ve learned in eleven years of marriage. 1.

Healing from Abandonment Trauma: 3 Things I Learned from Being Cheated On
Tiny Buddha
by Brandon Grill
1w ago
“The wound is the place where the light enters you.” ~Rumi I want to share an experience I went through that hurt like hell, but that helped me so much in the long run. The experience was being “cheated on,” though the woman wasn’t my girlfriend. Nevertheless, I was very attached and it felt awful. So, let me start with the backstory. I met Diana through mutual friends in late 2021. I thought she was cute, and a little anxious, which I seem to gravitate toward. That’s just my savior complex coming out, which is another story for another day. Eventually we hooked up after a holiday party and c ..read more

“I don’t want to get to the end of my life and find that I lived just the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.” ~Diane Ackerman Wow! My last weeks of my career. Though many days and weeks over the last thirty-four years have seemed to last forever, it truly is astonishing how fast time goes. And don’t we often try to make it go even faster? Our jobs are stressful. We are often under tight time constraints and deadlines. We have clients and associates who want and need things yesterday. We work in jobs we have very little control over. Add that to our daily responsibilit ..read more

Tiny Buddha

“To experience peace does not mean that your life is always blissful. It means that you are capable of tapping into a blissful state of mind amidst the normal chaos of a hectic life.” ~Jill Bolte Taylor I’d just spent over six years trapped in my own worst nightmare. Then in a split second, my whole reality shifted to an experience of exquisite peace and bliss. Walking through the streets of my home city, I seemed to be radiating unconditional love out and into everything around me. I didn’t know it then, but I’d just tasted the ultimate state of deep peace and presence that most people on th ..read more

How Embodiment Can Make You Feel More Alive (and 5 Ways to Do It)
Tiny Buddha
by Thomas Lai

“Embodiment is living within, being present within the internal space of the body.” ~Judith Blackstone When I was a little boy, I would dance whenever I heard a catchy pop song on the radio. There are photos of me throwing down dance moves, exuding joy and vitality. At some point, though, I lost my ability to dance. If I were to guess what happened, I would say that I stopped dancing when I became self-conscious. I was no longer just being; suddenly, I became aware of being someone with a body. So a long and complicated relationship with my body began. As a teenager, friends and family teased ..read more

The One Thought That Killed My Crippling Fear of Other People’s Opinions
Tiny Buddha
by Annie Das
2w ago
“Don’t worry if someone does not like you. Most people are struggling to like themselves.” ~Unknown For as long as I can remember, I have been deathly afraid of what other people thought of me. I remember looking at all the other girls in third grade and wondering why I didn’t have a flat stomach like them. I was ashamed of my body and didn’t want other people to look at me. This is not a thought that a ten-year-old girl should have, but unfortunately, it’s all too common. Every single woman I know has voiced this same struggle. That other people’s opinions have too much weight in their ..read more
