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.

Soft ripples

A rhythmic flow of thoughts, sensations and movement ripple along the surface.

There is a stillness in that rhythm, a fluid sense of presence, direction, clarity and completeness.

There is no pressing onward, no need for more. In the stillness, I am the me that I am to be.

So why do I seek waves and torrents when the stillness is the essence of my being?

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.

Finding Your Balance

IMG_1786

There is a sweet moment in sailing when the two sails, the main and the jib, are trimmed so precisely — balanced, as a captain would call it — that the boat seems to sail itself, rising on the wind, gliding through the water, you can even let go of the wheel and the boat will stay its course., tuning itself to the angles of the wind,  knowing what it needs best.

Our make up is not much different than that of a sailboat.  For, when we connect body and mind in seamless balance, the vessel of intuition takes flight and the higher Self is free to let go of the wheel, to trust each piece to do its part in divine equilibrium to sail us forward most efficiently, most powerfully, most joyfully and full of ease.

Some call it a true art to be a captain who sails a balanced ship.  Take the time to trim your sails, to feel the wind, to know what it is you need, and to find your balance.

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.

Spiraling upwards.

Energy lifting.

Feeling so blissful.

Finding my joy.

Sensing my balance.

Knowing my strength.

Freeing myself to be me.

In the valley…

valley of heart

Scattered thoughts or free thinking?

Procrastination or cultivation?

Anxiety or excitement?

It all depends on the filter you apply.

Whether perceived as negative or positive, when aligned with intention, all things meet in the middle, the filter dissolves, and in the valley of the heart, where labels and values are neutralized by the Self, the real work of joyfully being can begin.
