Flowers in the Heart

Sometimes things may look old, rundown, plain or dreary as you dash quickly by.  Whatever the condition of the outside, the edges of the frame you see, you can always find a space of light, of color, of beauty, alive in the heart.

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.

Haseya

Rise up.

Rise up with shining, loving spirit and compassion.

Rise up to support one another, guide one another, believe in the goodness of each other, and thrive together.

Rise up and celebrate our goodness, our power to heal, with the knowledge that we have it all, it already innately exists within each of us.  There is nothing more we need to do than to let that be our reality.

Rise up in the power of love.

Rise up.


The word “haseya” comes from the Navajo people, the language Dine, and means to rise up, to come together across cultures and divisions, to heal the pain that separates us from one another and the Earth.  To call upon the wisdom of our ancestors and the knowledge we hold within us to awaken a healing space for ourselves and our world.

Dance in the Darkness

flaming-upwards

No matter that anger laps at your feet,

No matter that fear and distrust appear to form walls around you,

No matter that hope feels smothered,

Spiral upwards, out of the ashes of perceived despair,

Fill the air with compassion.

As long as the flames of compassion dance,

We can know only peace and joy.

Wisdomful

We say we want our children to be more mindful, but aren’t they already in their minds enough?  Why don’t we encourage them instead to be more wisdomful?
