today is full of everything

The day is full of everything2014-04-25 15.18.12
today I commit to letting love be first to occupy me.
loving my toes
love my hair
love the tree i see, and then that one over there.
love the doggies
the kale plants.
ah the flowers!
 
everywhere I look is an opportunity for love
ok, the pavement
the electrical wire, my computer
my breath
of course
my breath
 
what do you love today?

move the body
free the joy.
there’s a few things
that shift my world easily and to the core. Movement is one of them.
wiggle.
feel the impulse.
set it free.
 
Break out of the ‘normal’ world
experiment
with random acts
of joyful movement outbursts
sprinkled with a little laughter.
What the heck.
 
This is my wish for the day:
might I wiggle wisely
and encourage a wild wiggle movement
that ripples through to your world.

 

clouds

there’s a cloud over my heart
the fog rolls over the hills
i have breath
i feel it filling my body
the clouds roll by
inside outside
I honor the clouds
i honor my breath2014-06-12 19.01.36
i honor my willingness to remember
my breath
breathing me
again and again.
i take a moment
i connect
with the source of my breath
that mysterious knowing that knows
that fills me and then
cleanses my cells my clouds my body
breathing.

I have choice

Screenshot 2015-01-12 06.30.23everything changes
I go here, I go there
i do this, i do that
and through it all
there I am

again

it’s the same me.

I’m sure you’ve heard: you can move the girl out of the country,
but you can’t take the country out of the girl.

so true
about everything.

i am slowing challenging myself to live from the inside out.
such a tricky proposition to accept responsibility for my world;
o so freeing
and then, darn…
so much responsibility

I will take each moment lightly as it comes
and when I am able
hold the light of my own creation
with whatever joy I can muster,

and acknowledge

it is MY world I’m creating here.
I have choice.

enter

fire_starterLet this moment be

full of force and folly
full of silence and despair
full of peace and patience
full of wisdom and nonsense
all the stuff life is.
 
feel it fill you
feel it dance inside the eternal flame of now.
we are only here this moment.
take that moment.
seize it.
own it as yours.
there is nothing need be done
nothing.
 
let this moment be.

sing out loud

I love class.
I love people coming together to openScreenshot 2015-06-23 22.33.28
I love the opening
I love what happens
I love the surpirise and delight that emerges
 
i feel blessed to be a moving part
in this wheel of creation.
 
thank you
all who have to the courage to open
to explore
to find their own voice
and sing out loud.

 

the big mess

is there order?2013-07-04 15.47.59
is there perfect action?
or is it just a big mess?
maybe it’s both.
 
I let it be what it is
somewhere a million light years from here
perfect order might be revealed
 
meanwhile
messy.
it’s messy.
i open to the messy
smile into the red light, the stop sign
the busy head bumbling
the tight shoudler shoulds
and breathe.
 

 

dear self

dear self,2013-07-04 16.14.09
I wish you to honor
the peace that is there inside
to stop long enough
to notice
all is well.
really,
all is well.
 
the sun rises, the sun sets,
the sun shines, then clouds come,
sometimes it rain…
the earth turns
trees grow
all is well.
 
nothing need be done
except the cultivation of joy
if that is your wish today
 
in peace.
 
the silence within.
