Not My Problem

Standard

Today I think about forgiveness.
I think about healing.
I remember the phrase
Let go or be dragged.
I pray for the strength to forgive.
I ask about the purpose of this pain.
I wonder what my feelings
want to teach me.
I want it all to change.
I wonder if healing happens
through
not in spite of
the feelings.
I ask for the strength
to allow myself to feel
whatever is arising in this moment.
I wonder if I have the resolve to keep going.
Just who exactly grieves the loss
of the one who never knew or loved the true me?
The logical one is glad he’s done…
he won’t be my problem anymore.

Request for Your Input!

Hi friends, I’m thinking of writing an ebook and would like some help narrowing down my topic.  Could you tell me what your biggest question is regarding health, wellness, fitness, mindfulness, meditation, yoga, and spirituality?  Please leave your question or any thoughts in the comment section below.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Freedom (Happy Inter-dependence Day)

Standard

Freedom,
like any experience,
is a mindset.
What does it mean to be free?
Without attachment to specific outcomes,
your mind is free to take in this moment
just as it is.
This is not complacency;
this is clarity.
A mind that is free
has a clear space within it,
elevating our perception and
moving us to rise up and meet
the evolutionary needs of the moment.
Is your mind free?
Freedom is one breath away.
Happy inter-dependence day,
my fellow evolutionaries.

That’s Better

Standard

Oh weary traveler,
when the road of Life
has you exhausted
and you think
you can’t take another step,
there is a refuge for you,
a place you can go
where there is always room for you,
a sanctuary where you will be
greeted with open arms
and the warmest hospitality.
The refuge is your own heart.
The sanctuary is the inexhaustible
well of peace found within the purest,
most sacred chamber of your heart.
Enter the refuge, weary one,
Find the sanctuary.
Come and sit a while.
Close your eyes.
Be still.
There now, that’s better.

Just Begin

Standard

Just begin.
You don’t have to finish
everything all in one go.
Just get started.
Get the momentum going,
don’t look back.
That project that seemed impossible
now becomes a series
of manageable steps.
The first step?
Take a deep breath.
Be still, close your eyes, go in.
When you take the time
to find center
the smallest actions
can have the most profound impact
on the world around you.
You don’t have to have
it all figured out.
Just begin.

Assuming Enlightenment

Standard

Let us assume that enlightenment isn’t some far off ideal,
but it is real, and close, and in fact within us right now.
Let us suppose that we are able to tune in
to our most enlightened self, right here, right now.
What would that self be like?
What would it say?
Where would it go?
What would it do?
If we keep trying to get there
how will we ever know what is here?
Let us assume we have access
to our highest potential, right here, right now.
Let us believe that we can express
the highest version of ourselves,
let our lives be a reflection of that self.
