Curiously Waxing

IMG_3450

Life follows patterns like the phases of the moon – some moments rich and full, some waxing or waning.  As we flow through each moment of life, we can feel joy and know beauty.  We can also welcome pain and even sorrow.  For we know that each night the moon changes and each moment we change…into something curiously new.

Behind the shades of darkness that cause us to wax or to wane, there is a great fullness to who we are.  Whether veiled and barely noticeable or opulently shining, the moon is always full.

Marvel at the light of the full moon.   Feel its majestic power.  Be awed by that same divine fullness that shines in you.

Liquid Love

stages

Abraham-Hicks says, “You are liquid love in physical bodies.”

 

It is in this space of liquid love

where we rendezvous

our purest selves

without the aid of email, phone, or text

we find each other

share a smile, a hug, a nod

cherishing each other’s being

knowing this is enough

in the darkness

in the silence

in the space between.

Invite new awareness in every experience with childlike innocence and freshness, illuminating parts of you that are dormant, numb, or forgotten.  Be bold and mindfully daring as you step beyond the familiar, trusting your intuition to live life fully – not cautiously, not routinely, nor steadily, rather knowingly and freely.

Look into their eyes

Tooey Eyes

The world goes by so bustlingly fast, a blur of action, words, and feelings.  As human beings, we work so hard to take it all in, to make it all part of that story that is us.

So often we miss the opportunity to witness without action, to pause and be in the moment, to look into the eyes of those around us as they experience their own defeat and triumph, their own fears, their own hurt, their love, their joy and to be with it all, but act on none of it.  Animals do it, especially cats.  They are wonderful at exercising the witness mind.

Let go of rational thought for a moment and step away from the need to do.  Pause, tapping into your animal instincts, and just watch.  Meditate on what you see.  Look into the eyes of those around you. Look beyond the surface…and even those who, in your mind, may have brought hurt or pain may reveal to you an underlying softness, a love, that they just can’t figure out how to put into action because they’ve put so much other stuff out there.

Look into their eyes and connect with that love and you just may have more love to hold onto as you go bustlingly through the fast-paced action that is the story of you.
