Peeling Away the Layers

image.jpeg

When I am truly present, I feel each experience within my body. I receive it with my breath. I prod it with my thoughts and explore it with my feelings. Then, as I peel away these aspects of experience, these many layers of me, my inner wisdom welcomes that experience, absorbing it like a sponge, until that experience becomes me.

When the layers dissolve, all that I experience is me.

Joyously Moving Forward

Joyously Moving Forward 2

Dissolving the idea that work, life, or who I am needs direction, drive, determination, pain or intense commitment. Simply moving along wherever the joy takes me. Knowing that is enough.

Joyously moving forward.

Where You Live

Front Door

Nothing that enters from the outside can define a person.  From within – from the space of the heart – comes the guidance and morality by which we live.  Your heart is where you live.

Unconditionally

Unconditional

You are light.  I am light.

You are happy.  I am happy.

I see you — the vibrant, perfect energy that is you.

I don’t need you to have struggles in order to feed my stories.

You are loved. You will prosper.

You will release patterns that hurt you.

You are released from serving my insecurities.

Be free of the shackles of my faults, my fears, my challenges. They are not yours.

Thank you for carrying them, for holding onto them so dearly, but you no longer need to.

I don’t need them anymore and neither do you.

We can just exist in the pure and natural state of joy that we are…

no stories, no struggles…

just light and love.

Belief Thief

IMG_8569

I wonder what my days would be if I only engaged beliefs that fuel my natural state of peace and joy.

What if I stopped taking on beliefs that don’t serve me – beliefs others have about me or what I think they think?

What if I were to just be…perfectly imperfectly me…and to stop being a belief thief?

Flowering

photo 5

Sometimes the world outside seems so bleak, so grey, so dim…without hope.

Then I dig down inside to find my deepest self, alive and blooming.

There, I find peace and promise flowering.

And the world seem a little less grey.
