Star Light

Follow not the bright star

that leads from above,

but the light from within

that guides with pure love.

A little bite will do

cake

A cake baked rich and full calls us to dive in.  Taste buds perk up, enzymes dance with anticipation, the whole body awakens to receive the treat.  In one bite everything else around fades away…thoughts, senses, feelings all tie into this moment.  There is a full sense of aliveness, of nourishment, of awareness and special connection in knowing that this bite can never be duplicated and would never need to be.  This bite fills the space of needing anything else.  At one in this moment with this sustenance, we know it is enough.  That is all we need to feel complete, full, satisfied.

Each moment in life is like that bite of cake, so rich, so filling, and completely satisfying when we are aware, when we allow ourselves to be fully consumed and to fully consume the deliciousness.

You can find love anywhere…when you take love with you everywhere.

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?

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.

INDEED

What is my true purpose?

To make great food?

To see and nurture the gifts in others?

To tread gently in this world?

To marvel at the rain?

To be joyful?

To care for the who that I am?

To know peace?

To live in love?

Yes.  Yes, indeed.

My true purpose is to align my doing with my being and to act with vision, intention, and determination.
