Thought of the Day

Words to contemplate. Time to sit and relax and allow the silence to heal, nurture and guide.

Putting a value on status

will create contentiousness.

If you overvalue possessions,

people will begin to steal.

By not displaying what is desirable, you will

cause the people’s hearts to remain undisturbed.

The sage governs

by emptying minds and hearts,

by weakening ambitions and strengthening bones, 

Practice not doing…

When action is pure and selfless, 

everything settles into its own perfect place. 

(3rd Verse) Loa Tzu

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TEAR DOWN THE WALLS

Have you become imprisoned unwilling to forgive?

Are you keeping people out or are the walls

keeping you isolated, alone and bitter?

Have you built walls of separation thinking

you are protecting yourself? 

Or are you simply shutting other people out

of your life?

Pleas of forgiveness echo against your walls

Yet you are resistant, hollow to the sound.

You must tear down the walls!

You are at the crossroad, which direction will 

you travel?

Ignoring buries you deeper and deeper into

the pain and contaminates you

and those around you. 

Tear down the walls!

Open to forgiveness and allow yourself the 

freedom to move forward accepting the

power of love to operate in your life.

 

I DiEd ToNiGht

MY LIFE WAS A HOLOGRAM OF UNTRUTHS

BELIEFS THAT SHADOWED  ME IN DARKENED CORRIDORS

PATTERNS  OF THE MIND SUBCONSCIOUSLY DANCED

BEFORE ANY LOGICAL THOUGHT, TEMPTING AND SEDUCING

CONFUSION INTERMINGLED WITH FEAR AND DOUBT

WITHDRAWN FROM RATIONAL REASONING I EMPTIED

MYSELF OF PROVEN FACTS AND SPIRALED DOWNWARDS

INTO A MIRE OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS

MY WORDS WEPT IN REGRET EACH PHRASE A METAPHOR

FOR HOPELESSNESS

THE WALLS SUFFOCATED ME DRAWING ME CLOSER AND

CLOSER INTO THE CIRCLE OF MISFORTUNE

BREATH SHALLOW ONE SIGH SWALLOWED  WITHIN

A MOMENT OF UNFORGIVENESS

REALITY SLAMMED AGAINST ME WITHOUT AN APOLOGY

I WAS LOST

I DIED TONIGHT

TO AWAKEN TO A DIMENSION OF CONSCIOUS  THOUGHT

THAT EXISTED ON THE PRECIPICE OF COURAGEOUS INTENTION

LIGHT WARMED THE PERIMETER OF MY EXISTENCE AND I

SURRENDERED TO THE POSSIBILITY THAT LIFE  LIVED WITH PURPOSE

WAS AN UNLIMITED THOUGHT LEANING INTO  TRUTH THAT

WAS ABSOLUTE


Describing an event that surpasses any expectation is a valuable gift to hold as a memory. I was attending to my two year old grandson one afternoon when he decided to start screaming instead of expressing vocally. I turned to him and told him to use his words. Then I asked him to sit on the floor with me and start to deep breathe to let go of any anger inside of him. I showed him how to deep breathe. He took in a deep breath and let it out. We did this several times. I told him we were going to meditate. He looked at me and stated “Like the lady?” I was dumbfounded at first not quite understanding what he was trying to articulate. He then went into my bedroom and brought out the figurine I had of a woman sitting in meditation. It holds a candle and he had seen it on my nightstand. I could not find words I was amazed at his ability to understand what that meant. I hugged him and said “Yes, just like the lady.” We put it in front of us and he placed his small hands on his knees and we both took in a breath and sighed on one breath and said Ohm. He repeated it several times and tears were in my eyes of one small innocent learning to sit in the silence and find peace within himself.  When I get frustrated he now looks at me and says “Breathe” 

A bud opening…

Reaching for the first ray of light

It senses a beautiful life unfolding…

Though unknowing what each moment will offer

With faith, petals out reach…

To touch the sunshine and drink it in

All glory instantaneously fills its being…

Evolving into what it has never been before.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Aware

Awareness explodes into expansiveness,

As a glimpse of what could be 

sparkles like a diamond collecting sunlight;

portraying its momentary brilliance  of colors

in a flash of remembrance

Refresh, Breathe!

Be receptive as Truth is 

revealed, rising from a life changing experience…

delicate and untouched like a rose encased in its own fragrance.

A promise of something new and mysterious  coming  into

existence, birthed for the first time.

A gift, cherished magnetized by the heart

creates inner space.

Acceptance of what was and attention

to what is illuminates life and breathes 

itself into awareness.

I am your Past, warm memories wrapped  around your heart. Laughter and joy and all the moments that make up forever.

A gift to be opened when your mind drifts back for comfort..

I am your Present, a gift of Now where you step into greatness, the woman I knew you always were. I am your dreams, the voice you

hear when you feel despair I am the rose blooming to show you the beauty of life. I am the smile you greet in a stranger’s face, I

am hope embracing you with love….

I am your Future, a vision of possibility. I am the strength that urges you forward. The courage to make each step worthwhile. I am

the love that awaits you, intimate and real. I am that tug inside of you that speaks of wonders that awaits you. I am the one who

says “I BELIEVE IN YOU”
