The Fortress

I do not need high walls, thick armies, or heavy artillery to protect me.

I need just listen to the quiet, gentle voice within to know the path to victory.

My greatest strength is my inner knowing.

Complete Sea

IMG_6225Able to move great vessels

capable of such fury

so humbly bowing

at the edges of the earth

gently curling up

and cradling its shores

I am but a drop in this vast ocean

and yet without me

the ocean would not be complete.

Star Light

star light

Follow not the bright star

that leads from above,

but the light from within

that guides with pure love.

The unfamiliar

Think with your heart. Have faith in your instincts. Place yourself in unfamiliar positions and you just might find you are more comfortable and happier than you ever imagined you could be.

Within

The cold and dark descend upon me like heavy clouds. My focus draws inwards. Folding into that stillness without resistance brings crispness and clarity. There I discover warm radiant light in the cool crisp darkness.

Fly Freely

IMG_1060

The waters span wide.  The air open and clear.  We fly in a world of abundance yet so often we swirl in competition for the perfect bite.  Jockeying for our place in the sun.  Diving deep for what feeds us with such reckless abandon.  But, when we soar gently on the currents of the air, watch intently for the tell-tale shadow that slides below the glistening surface of the water, in that moment the abundance shines clearly …soaring and diving, not in fear of what others might take from us, rather in knowing there is plenty and we can in every moment be freely and completely fed.

Simplicity

IMG_0872

Be grateful for the simple things…the love, the quiet, the laughter, each sunset, and the way that everyone in your life is there just as they are supposed to be perfectly annoying, perfectly intrusive, perfectly guiding you.

Embrace the simplicity of a plan already divinely created for you by you, all the pieces and all the players unfolding exactly as they are supposed to without layers of distraction, without redirection, not needing to be bigger or smaller.

Embrace the simplicity of it all and for that be grateful.
