that one thing

This day
do one thing
that most important thing
that thing that you’ve
been putting off
that one thing
that will bring you closer
to that one big goal
that thrills you.
sheets to the wind
arms to the sky
call that person
write that song
say those words
shave that head
what is it…
What would that be for you right now?

how many angels?

I love the open door
of this day
wide
full of expectation
and no limit yes.
I love this moment of simple stillness
drawing me into the mother’s deep bosom
her constant and total nurturing
 
I give that to myself now
 
yes
big sigh into yes.
 
for this is all I got
 
like a million zillion angels
dancing on the head of a pin
so happy
I get it now.

precious

right now
so preciousScreenshot 2016-06-01 07.15.19
can you feel the quality
of precious?
the sunrise
the changing leaves…
the argument your had last night?
what gifts come?
what opening is possible?
 
let the day inform that possibility
the possibility of preciousness
reclaim the day
that you might have walked so unaware
 
find a resting place,
that underlying deep dark nothingness
that informs all the brightness of this day.
 
that place of
precious.

if I could be one thing
let me be happy to be here
no matter the circumstanceScreenshot 2016-05-18 12.39.14
no matter the stories I tell myself.
 
if I could accomplish one task
let it be
to smile and breathe into
this moment
and feel fully alive…
 
with the gratitude of one
who knows
how precious this moment is.
 
And then to remember
again.
and again
and again
till it becomes
more of who I am
than all the distractions and stories
inside and out

alive.
I am.
 
the miracle.
the blessing.
 
 
 

thank you

It pours forth
every breath holdsScreenshot 2016-05-11 07.01.27
a new universe
 
It pours forth
every movement holds
a new possibility
 
It pours forth
every thought holds
a new opening
 
the roaring river of my moments
pours forth
rain and sun on bright waters
 
and all my lips can utter is
a humbled
and ever present
thank you.

allow the awe

Stop.Screenshot 2016-05-04 11.31.09
Empty
the mind
the garbage
the judgements
the to do lists
the ‘ought to’s’
stop
the endless chase
finish
the sentence
the dishes
the task at hand
the breath.
 
sit in that emptiness
and be with your
beautiful breathing body
and allow the awe to rush in.

breathe a little deeper

Today
Each time I remembersuncloud
I will
breathe a little deeper
stand a little taller
smile a little broader
love myself a little huger
and allow that love to cascade to you
my friend
the world
whatever the heck I lay my eyes on
 
For I have this sneaking feeling
the universe
is there
waiting for me
at each
breath
to laugh with the profound glory
I am we are it is.

simple silence

it’s hereScreenshot 2014-07-08 11.31.49
in the silent simple curious
waiting eager
anticipating
 
it’s here
soft subtle surrender
smile so simple
softer slowly
we come so so softly
 
so slowly
and yet we come
into simple silence
 
as an honored guest
at the holy royal superbowl
of our fondest dreams
simple deliverence
o so slowly simple silent
simple silent subtle eager
it’s here
waiting eager
anticipating
 
hello.

today is the day

today is the day   IMG_6675
perhaps an ordinary day
but today
is a day like none other
new, fresh, full
today I notice
more than ever before
the goodness
the possibilities
the beauty
I notice the goodness
today I open to the goodness
that surrounds me
today I wish you well
and you well
and you well
today I wish me well
 
today is a day that I choose to fill
with all goodness that is
today i stop and notice
that goodness
inside me, inside you
all around.
today is the day.
