As it heats this room.
Irish Chai simmerng
Waiting to be poured.
Sun rising unseen
Behind the Sangre de Cristos.
Every single thing moving
In its’ place.
It has come to this…
This is what is.
I am so powerful, I can create misery for myself…
out of anything at all…
I am so powerful I can create joy for myself…
out of anything at all…
A tip of the hat to Mac Dryden for his insights becoming words.
You were responsible.
You completed all that was needed. You showed up wholeheartedly. Now you just have to wait it out With rest, fluids, gentle stretches and meditation.
As you live into
The fever, the body aches and the chills… Whatever the moment brings, Embody it with the help of your breath. Let go with the help of mantra-ing: This too shall pass.
•Life has its’ own timing. •.Everything in life is impermanent. A deep bow to the second Moderna vaccine shot for help in writing this blog!
Bear witness to your environments Both inner and outer.
Pause. Breathe. Settle.
Observe the “What Is-ness” in your life.
Trust What Is. Notice what emerges.
Sometimes it is all about
Stepping into Life wholeheartedly
With the curiosity of Beginners Mind…
The courage to Live in the Unknown… And the confidence that every single. thing Brings lessons for your practice.
Engage fully today. Be open to what arises. Surrender to Just This.

When was a time your Heart and Spirit
Felt wholeheartedly Nourished?
It was swimming in the Pacific With my son A few miles off the Maui shore.
It was just the two of us until
A Mama whale began Singing to her calf In the deep waters.
The gentle waves combined with
The singing, embodied us With a sense of happy wonder. Our happiness evolved Into a Meditation of Oneness.
I visit this memory often.
Why? Because it nourishes me And when I do, I feel happy.
As you bring up your memory
In your mind’s eye Notice. everything. single. thing. Feel into it. Breathe into it. Embody it.
Highlight this memory in
Your mind’s eye Tracking it from Beginning to end.
This is your go-to
When your Heart and Spirt Are aching to be nourished.
Happiness is fun, isn’t it!
Where flow is not perceived –
Where the unfolding process is not trusted – Where Monkey Mind is continuously Jumping haphazardly In no particular direction.
It’s a dizzying experience,
This Gnarly Mindset.
A bit gnarly! 2012 Haiku, Maui
What to do?
Invite Breath to guide you into Spaciousness.
For five minutes do Belly Breaths through your nose:
Deeply inhale ten counts. Hold ten counts. Exhale slowly ten counts. Hold ten counts. Repeat.
As the mind settles
Connection happens. Higher states of Consciousness Are experienced.
Bear witness to your life…
What is my intention today? What seeds shall I plant? How shall I water them?
