Take Action

Standard

Breathing.
Remembering life is right now.
I keep questioning,
realizing there are no answers.
Questions are doors and windows
to new possibilities;
my spirit challenges me
to believe.
Is this faith,
to believe there is more
out there for me
even though I can’t
see it
taste it
smell it
touch it
feel it?
I breathe.
I summon gratitude,
courage,
conviction.
Now, God,
help me take action.

Don’t Stop Looking

Standard

I keep asking God,
the Universe,
All That Is,
How may I serve you?
I keep waiting for an answer.
I want to look back on my life and know
I loved as much as I could
I gave as much as I could
I lived life to the fullest.
So what do I need to see there
in the record of my years
to be peaceful on my deathbed?
How may I serve you?
I want to know how my life force
can bring joy to others’ lives.
I want to reach more people.
I want to help more.
I have no idea
what shape my offering will take,
but I know it’s bigger
than what I’m doing now.
How may I serve you?
How can my life energy
make other people’s lives better?
I guess that this is where faith comes in…
I ask the question
and then I don’t stop looking
until I find the answer.

Answered Prayer

Standard

I didn’t know…until I knew.
I wasn’t sure…until I was.
I didn’t have a client…until I did.
I had no idea how to trust…until I trusted.
I thought self-love was impossible…
until one day I looked in the mirror,
said I love you, and meant it.
God, I prayed and I prayed for this.
Now what would you have me do?

Easy As Breathing

Standard

I want to trust.
I want to have faith.
How do I do it?
I keep trying so hard,
but I end up scared,
feeling alone,
confused,
frustrated,
blocked.
This moment is a new start.
Can you breathe?
Yes.
Ok, so breathe.
Now trust
that as you exhale,
there will be more air
on the other side
of your emptiness.
That’s faith.
Faith is as easy as breathing.

What You’ve Been Waiting For

Standard

Always learning,
and what a privilege.
Teachers everywhere,
never in short supply.
Just look around you;
open your eyes.
Listen, feel,
taste all these gifts,
constant miracles.
Inhale the scent of possibility,
throw your arms open wide
and dance on the edge
of your own becoming.
Look over the edge
into the great abyss of the unknowable;
DIVE IN.
There is nothing to fear!
When you take the big leap
you will fly
or you will land in the arms
of the loving divine.
Either way,
it’s beautiful, it’s perfect,
and it’s what you’ve been waiting for
your whole life.

In My Favor

Standard

What are the chances
I could get good at the relationship
I have with myself
and be kind, gentle,
loving and patient with myself,
the way I always hoped
my husband would be?
What are the chances
I could forgive myself
for all of the times
I was unkind to myself,
criticized myself,
convinced myself
there was something wrong with me?
What are the chances
I could be so intimate with myself
and content with my inner universe
that the outer universe
becomes a clear reflection
of that contentment?
What are the chances
I could get started on this work right away?
What are the chances
I’ve done a lot more of the work
than I’ve ever given myself credit for?
And what if this work
is a lot easier and a lot more natural
than I ever dared to believe it could be?
In this infinite universe of possibility,
I think the odds are in my favor.
