The greatest magnifying glasses in the world are a man’s own eyes when they look upon his own person. ~ Alexander Pope

This is so true. When we look within ourselves, our “magnifying glasses” bring us so close that we often lose perspective.

Meditation can help us see our true selves.

God bless and Namaste!

About Tamara Hoerner (1171 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

  3. It’s interesting to me how we can be hardest on ourselves, but also at times, think too highly of ourselves. When giving honest reflection, we should see both our strengths and weaknesses.

  4. Couldn’t agree more. It wasn’t until I started to break free of limiting views of myself and start to focus on my vision that I started to see new abundance in my life!
