Agency

Poor behavior is a sign of a loss of agency.

Lashing out at the circumstances around me instead of diving into the power within me.

There within I always have the capacity to choose, to “re-cognize” and bring back into my mental awareness my own tools of agency. I don’t need someone else to pick me up, to defend me, or clear the way for me.

I can feel confident, strong, and happy through my own decision making.

Whatever the story, with agency I can produce my own powerful, beautiful ending.

Aware versus Analytical

I don’t need a “why.” I just need an “oh.”

Noticing something, my mind quickly jumps in to create a story.

I have this sensation. I will label it. I will now connect it to good or bad. My mind will attach it to a memory and define it as an experience.

How splendid it would be to just notice with curiosity, not the critical mind, as each thought occurs like drops of water. Inquisitively, I watch the water dripping, not seeking to explain its circumstance but simply present in its occurrence.

Awareness without analysis, knowledge for discovery, not proof or justification.

When I “oh” instead of “why”, I “be” instead of “do.”

Response-Able

I am whole.

I am complete.

I am not waiting for anything.

I am aware of all that is going on inside and all around me.

There is choice at the base of my every action.

I am powerful and free.

I am responsible.

I am response-ABLE.

Master of My Domain

 

Master of My Domain

To be the master of my domain does not mean to have ultimate power and be in control of everything.  Rather, it is to live in complete balance with all that exists in and around me and be in harmony with everything.

When the Storm Rolls In

 

when-the-storm-rolls-in

When the storm rolls in, do you spread your branches and invite it in?

Do you tingle with anticipation as the wind presses against your skin?

As the sky darkens and clouds cluster, do you marvel at their majestic dance?

Do you breathe in the energy, feel the power, as it slowly builds its strength?

Do you know the humble quiet of just watching that storm grow?

Flashes of light, ripples of rumble, dewy droplets in the sky.

As it slowly wraps around you, can you hold peace in your heart and know your courage and your own might to welcome whatever it may bring?

There is the storm

and there is you.

One Place

 

monday-mindfulness-one-place

What if I were you and you were me?

Would we live in harmony?

Would you love me unconditionally?

Would you let my heart and mind be free

In love and light and truth and peace?

What if the I in you was the you in me?

What if there was just one place – could it be?

Where we are one, where we both just be,

Existing in the space of eternity,

As light, as love, as truth, as peace?

If there is but one place, would you go there with me?
