Gratitude, Day 33 of 48: Freedom

Standard

I have this power to choose
and I choose freedom.
I choose to see how inextricably connected
I am with All That Is
and to communicate deeply with consciousness
as it presents itself in the present moment.
I choose to surrender into being
to dissolve the illusion of confinement within me
so that I can truly experience the ultimate freedom.
I let go of my definition of this moment.
What arrives is truth, reality, the freedom to be
exactly who I am, accepting my humanity,
in love with life the way it is…

Just Get Quiet and Still

Standard

If I can just get quiet and still
and go within and listen
I can hear the heartbeat
of the Universe.
I can feel the deep peace
that is my true nature.
I can sense the oneness of being
that is the truth of existence.
Yeah, I should probably
just get quiet and still
and go within and listen
more often.

Breathe and See

Standard

Jaded, yet plugging along
at this thing called daily life.
I want so much to be understood
by someone who doesn’t charge me an hourly rate.
I’m tired of being tired,
tired of being grumpy,
tired of being overextended.
Every day I write what I’m grateful for,
I remember how blessed I am,
I give thanks.
And, I’m waiting for more.
I’m waiting for ease,
for connection,
for direction.
Maybe I shouldn’t wait,
but who has the energy
to leap up, go out, and
manifest a whole new life?
I’ll just breathe and see
if I can reclaim my sanity.

Mountains and Avalanches

Standard

I was sifting through
mountains of papers
looking for something.
One of the mountains shifted,
sending an avalanche to the floor.
And then in the next second,
another avalanche.
And I said,
Okay, me too.
So I fell to the floor,
lay down on my back,
stared up at the track lighting
on my ceiling.
Here we all are, on the floor.
Now what?
I felt my body was tired.
I didn’t want to search anymore.
I knew that whatever it was,
either it would turn up,
or I would replace it.
So I went upstairs,
and I got in bed,
and had dreams
about mountains and avalanches.

That’s Success

Standard

It’s a simple way,
a simple truth,
a simple life—
to simply open your heart
to all that is.
The trouble is,
you don’t need a product
or an expert to show you how to use it,
and so this way isn’t advertised,
and so most of us don’t know about it.
But I promise you,
I will spend my whole life
living this open-hearted way as much as I can.
And maybe my open heart
could help other hearts to open
along this path I walk.
To know that I coaxed just one heart open
by living my simple life…
now that’s success!
