#2 Love Letter to Life

Life, you’ve seemed older these past months, even serious and withdrawn at times.

Yet today I witnessed you ageless with the lightness of Beginners Mind wisdom. My heart leapt!
It was then I recognized I had been the serious and withdrawn one, not you.

Life, you are my Beloved Teacher. Please don’t give up on me as I learn to walk uncharted territories with the lightness of Beginners Mind.

As though for the first time…

Beginners Mind is an open state of awareness. It is where belief systems are no longer fed by the past nor the imagined future.

It’s Just This.
It’s What Is.
It’s Here Now.
It is the Thusness of Life.

May you now live in Beginners Mind.

And there will be tears…

Give yourself permission to tear up, to weep, to wail.
Let the tears flows.

As loss occurs, allow grief to enter as your ally.
The challenges , stresses and uncertainties begin to reframe.

A new wisdom is birthed.
The strength of Beginners Mind is liberated.

Are You on Hold?

Holding your breath? Holding out until “this is over”? Holding off until more is revealed?

I challenge you to get off hold and answer Life to your fullest. You can do this. We can do this. Aren’t you curious about what is around the corner?

Let’s get off hold and explore Beginners Mind!

Leapfrogging time!

When the Monkey Mind, Inner Critic and Gremlin have you looking at the world through a limited viewpoint…leapfrog over and land in Beginners Mind where everything is possible.

No one knows what will happen next. And we aren’t sure what just happened.

Bottomline: Live in this moment participating fully. When necessary leapfrog over all thought forms that are Spirit Killers.

This is another form of mind training. Remain diligent.

Teachers and Students

Sometimes we choose our teachers.
Sometimes our teachers choose us.

In both cases when we enter as a student ~
Living in Beginners Mind
Trusting the Mysteries
Walking in Unknown Territory ~
The world we live in
Becomes Infinitely miraculous.

To be Life’s student
Trust the knowingness of Life.

There is not one atom against you.

Zen it down…to stay on top.

We are all new at this.
We are all collectively rewiring our brains to adapt.
This is why tiredness can be part of our day.

To help the rewiring process
Live in Beginners Mind.

Attend to your day as a newborn, napping when needed.
Rest your body and mind.
Utilize meditation, mindfulness practices and good old fashioned exercise with foods that nourish.

Zen it down.
We are all on a Learning Curve of Not Knowing.

What have you learned so far?

Join us daily to meditate and “Explore the Silent Spaces of Infinite Mindset” from 6am – 6:30am Mountain. Come explore and witness with colleagues from around the world. It’s become a refuge for many of us.

Let’s meditate together…live.

A deep bow and much love to each of you from Santa Fe…

The world is reinventing itself in this moment. Together we are walking in the mysteries of the unknown on a crash course of adapting and integrating. 

You are invited to join me on Zoom each day to meditate silently from 6 to 6:30am Mountain Time. It’s in these silent spaces where we find resiliency in an infinite and nourishing mindset.

Come, come, whoever you are. Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving. It doesn’t matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair. Come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times. Come, yet again, come, come.

Deep bow to each of you with fresh eyes and Beginners Mind,

Reset Time!

Reset time is living in Beginners Mind as fresh eyes and fresh beginnings are revealed.

Here are a few ways Reset Time manifests:
-Follow your intuition as you drive yourself to an unknown location for an overnight.
-Spend 24 hours in your flannel pj’s unplugged so you can plug into your inner world.
-Wander around the town you live in as though for the last time.
-Take yourself out on a date and surprise yourself with unusual gifts.
-Go to bed an hour earlier and get up an hour later. Record your dreams as they arise.
-Give yourself permission to do what you have always wanted to do!

How will it become visible?

Imagine what you are looking for is looking right at you…but you can’t see it.

How do you make the invisible visible?
•Pause.
•Close your eyes and open into a spacious mindset.
•Soften your body with the energy of kindness.
•Gently open your eyes
•View the world with the fresh eyes of Beginners Mind.
