Back to School

Pack your best supplies and perhaps an apple for your teacher.  Apply your knowledge keenly to learn from all life’s lessons, knowing that the curriculum, the patterns and experiences, has been precisely planned by your teacher to inspire forever growth and learning.  Select the courses to take and when and how to apply your knowledge.  The curriculum is there to guide you, developed by your greatest teacher…you.

Heart In

heart

Remember, my friend, you have a heart and a mind.  The mind keeps us safe, the heart keeps us real.

I know that whatever you do will be meaningful and magnificent as long as you keep your heart in it and your ego out of it.

Take a Stand

Stand Under

The feet are the foundation for the heart and head, the physical roots of Self.  They carry us. They know our struggles.  They tell our story – a story of how we have lived, our relationships with others, our deepest strengths, and where we have stood through every weakness.

Whether standing in the shadows or on the front lines of our experiences, we directly connect those experiences to our roots.

When we humbly and courageously stand under our experiences as opposed to standing up to them, we begin to open our hearts, strengthen our compassion for ourselves and others, and to exercise the most clear and powerful voice of action, that of the higher self.

We must stand under in order to understand.

Perspective

Perspective is everything.

Perspective applies the lens, tells the story, creates the experience, leaves the memory, defines impressions and molds beliefs.

Is it time to change the lens?

Slow Watching

IMG_3878 (2)

Sometimes life begins to feel like it’s swirling around outside of me, faster than me, bigger than me, as if instead of surfing the wave I find myself caught up, tossing in the undercurrent.

That’s when I recoil my limbs, retract my mind, and tuck securely into my shell.  Belly protected, I focus on my breath, on my heartbeat, on listening — listening and watching — as my inner wisdom quietly reminds me that “I’m OK.”

When I go inside, I come back to my center and everything on the outside slows down.  I watch…I breathe…and I know that whatever is going on outside, I can always find calm on the inside.

I am

I am

I am earth, holding your deepest secrets.

I am water, bending and moving to carry you.

I am air, lifting and inspiring you.

I am fire, igniting your passion and will.

I am the freedom you have to soar.

I am all that is within and around you.

I am.

I am you.
