Back to School

apple

Pack your best supplies and perhaps an apple for your teacher.  Apply your knowledge keenly to learn from all life’s lessons, knowing that the curriculum, the patterns and experiences, has been precisely planned by your teacher to inspire forever growth and learning.  Select the courses to take and when and how to apply your knowledge.  The curriculum is there to guide you, developed by your greatest teacher…you.

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.

And the beat goes on…

And the beat goes on

Let the music play, the beat tuned to the flow of my breath and the rhythm of my heart.

I am the amazing conductor of the orchestra of my life.

Its sound perfectly tuned.

Its measure justly syncopated.

Its harmony divinely aligned.

Oh, how lovely the notes and tones come together when I mindfully raise my baton with a smile and create just the right pulse and rhythm on which this ensemble plays on just for me.

Perspective

Perspective is everything.

Perspective applies the lens, tells the story, creates the experience, leaves the memory, defines impressions and molds beliefs.

Is it time to change the lens?

What is my true purpose?

To make great food?

To see and nurture the gifts in others?

To tread gently in this world?

To marvel at the rain?

To be joyful?

To care for the who that I am?

To know peace?

To live in love?

Yes.  Yes, indeed.

My true purpose is to align my doing with my being and to act with vision, intention, and determination.

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.
