From mornings’ stern winterrrr-brrrr
To noon’s warming light
Sun resets herself once more.
You made it.
You are here.
Breathe it in…this newness.
Pretty wonderful, huh?
That’s it. That’s all there is.
How does living in the moment help us move forward?
Because there is no tomorrow,
Unless tomorrow is now.
It’s now that you take the step.
It’s now that you update your mission statement.
It’s now that you uplevel your programming.
It’s now that you walk curiously into your dream…
And live the life of your Future Self.
Or did “I”?
Mac brainstormed another way to hold and apply the brush.
Lydia advised which type of canvas was best and why.
Brittany gave me protected space.
T-Bird showed me the Aisle of Iridescence.
David reminded me to unplug. Totally.
Dr. Sam aka Simmone coached me to get to the other side.
Catherine rephotographed at the last minute to meet the 7″ x 7″, 300 dpi requirements.
Zana was my listening ear when the gremlins needed to be put onto the back parking lot.
“I” didn’t do it. It was the Strong Mountain Mandala that did it.
“I” was just fortunate to be at the center of the mandala this time around.
- It’s not the sun – it’s how you cooperate with the sun.
- It’s not the wind – it’s how you dance in the wind.
- It’s not the hoola hoop – it’s how you move inside the hoola hoop.
- It’s not the wave – it’s how you swim in the wave.
- It’s not the food – it’s how you digest the food.
- It’s not the information – it’s the meaning you create.
There is no world beyond this perception of the world. – Mac Dryden
You don’t have to take the hit. You don’t have to say, “Yes”. You don’t have to revisit the old patterns.
Become the breath of courage.
Side step. Turn away. No need to worry about the bullet. It will look for another place to lodge while you skip away to live another reality.
Thank you, Mary Oliver…for unpacking the layers…
Everything is new today
Ready to be Seen
Underneath it all is the Awareness of Life
Are you ready to experience it?
Are you ready to be freshly born?
