Dedication

Standard

I believe in the way of love.
I follow my inner guidance
in the direction of my most
authentic expression.
I believe in health and goodness and light.
I know forgiveness
and am liberated in this moment,
a spokesperson for possibility
in a mind at home with itself.
Thank you Life
for giving me this chance
at self-realization.
Thank you for guiding me
to reach my fullest potential
for the benefit of all beings,
forever.

Audio Aspiration

Standard

Yes, I did.
A mic.
Yep.
With a boom arm,
shock mount and pop shield.
And an audio interface.
And monitoring headphones.
And at first, nothing, no sound.
But then I learned
I have a lot more to learn.
After a few nights’ sleep
and some humility,
after tweaking cables,
software settings,
gain, monitoring volume
and headphones volume,
Yureka, sound!,
The sound of a voice
captured digitally
and held in space
with the great aspiration
that whatever comes through,
whatever is passed on,
is for the greatest good of all beings.

Staying Awake

Standard

Staying awake
long enough
to breathe for my sisters,
my father,
my husband,
the world…
Feeling drowsy, peaceful,
almost nodding off,
but remembering
why I’m here,
why I’m doing this.
Stay awake
a voice says,
and I shake off my fatigue
for a moment longer.
And I realize
awakening is one thing
but staying awake is another.
