Forget and forgive


Forgive and forget, so they say…but can you forget and forgive?

What if you forgot to send out an email that hundreds of folks were counting on for inspiration?  That marked the beginning of your new week?   That added a little lightness to someone’s day or made a difference in some little way?

Could you forgive yourself enough to send that message a day late, still filled with love and inspiration?  Could you love yourself enough to honor the hectic pace that got away from you without judging too harshly your set of priorities?  Could you simply say, “This message will still matter and will serve its purpose, even in this different time dimension.”

I hope so…

There’s No Time In the Present


Time is fleeting, but only if you are looking forward or backward.

If you are truly present, then time is invariable. In the moment, time stands still.

If you want more time to do the things you love, then do the things you love.

Time does not fill spaces, spaces are filled with time.

Live your life fully present and you will find time.

Our Opinions


Do you really need to be right?

Is there just one answer to the question?

Can’t we find space for both our opinions?

Perhaps in this complex Universe

We are intended to have different perspectives.

Perhaps through our varying views

We can impact the greatest change.

It’s easy to partner with those who share

The same point of view.

Divinely powerful to embrace that which is different.

Could it be that our opinions intertwined,

Instead of butted against each other,

Can lead to greatness beyond each of us

As we stand in our opinions alone?

Let’s partner in our differences,

Nod to each other’s strengths.

Let’s meet at the top of that mountain,

grow the Universe stronger and brighter

With love, compassion, and respect

For one another and our opinions.

Love in action

Love in action 2

Compassion is love in action.

When you are compassionate with others, you accept them in a space of humble kindness.  You are not excusing action or inaction on their part, rather you are fully acknowledging that the action or inaction is theirs and they are trying to do their best to be their best.

When you are compassionate with yourself, you invite the richest form of healing and growth imaginable within your deepest Self, knowing you are doing your best to be at your best.

Feel the love…unconditionally.

Feel compassion.
