The “Just This Tree”

I invite you to sit and lean up against the trunk of your favorite tree.
Breathing in Just.
Exhaling This.

Leaning in, let the tree support you.
Breathing in Just.
Exhaling This.
Just This.

As you are swallowed up in Just This-ness...
Notice the gifts that surround you.


When in doubt today…

….stop, close your eyes, inhale deeply and exhale twice as deep. Do this a few times. Slowly oxygenate your experience. Let it become fresh again.


Open your eyes and observe through the lens of Beginners Mind. Trust what arises and follow through.

Keep me posted…( – ;

My outer life is a reflection of my inner life.

Each time she exhales her short screech into the dark night I exhale all that is not needed. She is a balm spreading over this night of unreined thoughts.

She connects me to the dark skies as they lighten in the east reminding me the sun will rise yet again over the Sangre de Cristos of my mind.
