You Are Not Alone

Standard

It’s easy to believe you are alone
in moments of anger,
impatience,
frustration,
depression.
The energy of these heavy emotions
draws us into our own swirls and spirals
of that in us which is unresolved,
unexamined,
forgotten,
repressed,
ignored.
But there is a way to escape
the self-absorption
that entraps us in our own darkness.
Be curious.
Look around you.
See the other beings with whom you share this space,
this same feeling,
this same wanting,
needing,
longing.
When you see that you are truly  not alone,
then you can find relief–
a communion of similar souls
walking this path
also trying to awaken,
to be happy,
to be healthy,
to be peaceful and at ease.
Be curious.
Look around you.
Whatever it is that you are feeling,
you are not alone.

Let’s Do Our Job

Standard

It occurred to me tonight
as I invoked the muses before writing,
that yes,
it is nice to have divine inspiration,
but it can’t do much if we don’t receive
what it is we are asking for.

Let’s get clear on what we want:

beauty
peace
joy
love
harmony
abundance
health
synchronicity
creativity
clarity
communion
contentment–

and then let us receive these things we ask for,
by breathing in deeply.

Then feeling the existence of these wondrous qualities within us,
let us share them with all beings
by giving of ourselves,
breathing out completely.

Yes, invoke divine beings–
angels, teachers, guides,
but then let’s do our job too.

Let’s Breathe.
