Kindness

You may not agree with me
because we are all unique
each in our own precious way

There is harmony to be found
and new realities discovered
by sharing our uniqueness

But unless you can share
your personal views with
open-hearted kindness
it’s falling on deaf ears.

Honoring Our Feelings

You have the right to “feel”
any way you choose

Honor what you feel
for feelings are the
expression and guidance
of your Inner Being

Feelings are your
innate life compass

They are not up for review by
your chattering mind
your spouse
your children
your parents
your priest
or anyone else

There is no such thing as
a wrong feeling

It is our judgment and reaction
to our feelings that create
the quagmires of confusion
not the feelings themselves

So judge not and be grateful
for all that you feel

Woe are the ones
who have shut the door
on their feelings
and live bereft of life.

Gift of Experience

Experience
every experience
is a gift.

There are no levels
of experience
high or low
good or bad
unless we choose
to judge them as such
and then the experience
becomes a burden
rather than a gift.

We have the opportunity
to accept the gift
of every experience
as a treasure of wisdom
to more fully love ourselves
and open more fully to life.

Free as a Child

A child is content
to build castles in the sand
knowing they will be washed away
with the next tide,
then returns the following day
to build another
ever more glorious castle.

The wisdom of our own inner child
knows that what it builds today
need not be grasped onto
need not be protected
need not be entombed,
simply lived to the fullest
in this joyous moment.

Ah, to be the child
with our dreams and creations
enjoying them to the fullest
with playful delight
in this present moment
then allowing them to return
to the infinite sea of creation.

Ah, to be the child again
living life
joyously, freely, openly
knowing we are infinite beings.

Blank Canvas

Life began as is a blank canvas.
There is no reality

except that which we make real 

with our own imagination.



That begs me to question:
“How much of what I’ve always considered to be reality

has been unconsciously handed down to me?” 



There is no “one” reality.

What is real for me,
may not be real for you. 

I get to choose my reality 

and you get to choose yours.



This awareness expands reality
to new levels of consciousness
brought to life
by our “image-in-action”.

Soul Speaks without Words

The Soul speaks without words . . .

why does spirituality
feel the need to explain itself
with so much mental jargon
so many verbal teachings
so many affirmations
so many incantations
so many words
so much noise

that it drowns out the Soul.

Live your Joy

The easiest way to uplift the world
is to live your Joy!

You may think it sacrilegious
to live your joy
when so many are suffering
but are they benefiting
by your woebegone attitude?

Lift yourself up
allow your light to shine
be the Joy of Life
which is the medicine
being called forth for healing.

Be the Joy
and watch the whole world
transform in the wake of your Joy!!

Transcending our Thinking

There is no turning back
once we open ourselves
to living in the “unknown.

Sometimes, my human mind
feels like it’s courting chaos
attempting to put it all
in familiar linear order
but my Spirit is soaring!!!

Indeed, my Spirit does KNOW,
in moment to moment revelations,
No wonder the mind feels threatened
with new potentials opening faster
than the mind can keep up.

We simply need to transcend
our old way of thinking
wrap our arms around ALL of life
the known and the unknown,
the mind and the spirit.

Herein lies our Peace,
our childlike wonderment
and our impetus to Thrive.

Calling Forth the Soul

When you call forth your Soul
you have also called forth
the eternal Wisdom of the Divine.

The Soul will not be content
to allow you to tuck it away
because it does not fit the persona
you have created for yourself
or the world that surrounds you.

The Wisdom of the Soul
will unerringly filter into your life
smoothing your path with ease and grace
or it will create havoc with your persona
who is unwilling to let go.

Your Soul will disrupt you
’til you embrace it’s divine wisdom
or haunt you until your death.
