This time we get to know Cecilia Lucio, Yoga teacher born in Munich and living in Portugal. Thank you so much dear Cecilia for your time and your inspiring answers! Enjoy!
1. Which situation or book changed your perspective on life?
“Das Café am Rande der Welt” – John Streckely (“The Why Are You Here Café”) – This book opened a door in my life which gave me a new perspective about myself, my path and life in general. It taught me to have trust in my journey and to let my heart guide my way without fear.
2. Which 3 words are most powerful for you and why?
“I love you” – there is so much power in a simple sentence. And that is what love is about: it is simple but powerful. By allowing myself to always act in a loving way, to share love with myself and with everything that is I am drawing from the infinite source. Love heals. Love is the most powerful gift for yourself and everyone else. Where love rules, fear and hate nave no space. Give love and it´ll always come back in a way you maybe could have never imagined.
3. What is your mental timeout?
Being on my yoga mat, flowing with my feelings and good music. Meditating and listening to my inner world. Being at the ocean, my second home, touching the water, listening to the sound of the waves, smelling the salty air and watching the sun rise.
4. What does seek more than just success mean to you?
Living in the present moment, being happy with what I am doing and where I am standing riht now and trusting my journey. If I am just focussed on “success” I am living in the future. But by living in the present success will come automatically in so many different and beautiful ways. As we say in yoga: “The journey is the goal.”
