An Empowered Existence

Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. ~ Khalil Gibran Slanted windswept rain,magnificent diamonds,illuminated byone defiant sun,superbly soak,receptive forestswith stoic mountain peaks,the silent witness.There are no contradictions in nature,there is no senseof obligation,there is no affect,no intent;only pure and simple,unapologeticcausality.Weather has no agenda,it marches onwith [...]

Terry Fox, a Hero’s Hero

I love your silence. It is so wise. It listens. It invites warmth. I love your loneliness. It is brave. It makes the universe want to protect you. You have the loneliness that all true heroes have, a loneliness that is a deep sea, within which the fishes of mystery dwell. I love your quest. It is noble. It [...]

If Only for this Moment

Ego says; “Once everything falls into place I’ll feel peace.”Spirit says; “Find your peace, and then everything will fall into place”~ Marianne Williamson Awakening to a cantaloupe sky from pastel dreams of peaceful surrender, where what I need is what I have; a sated world devoid of cravings,if only for this moment. Mountain morning moon,unhurried, smiling,clear and [...]

A Pinnacle of Peace

      Somewhere beyond the drone of the beehive psyche lies a pastel mindscape imbued with gentle hues of knowing.

Fishtailing Into Now

“The path to true equanimity is the whole hearted, unrestricted co-operation with the unavoidable”  Tomorrow; a blurred prophecy obscure and abstract,spawning hollow threats,empty promises,predicated on perhaps.   Mental constructscontainingdelusional hopes,delirious desires,destiny’s defeats.   Today;   irrational fear embodied,maladaptivecoping strategiesdesigned to fail; as if we knew. Colliding with the unavoidable, plummeting into reality at gunpoint; ample resistance,no preparation.   Yesterday;  of course I knew, I had to, how could [...]

The best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago. The second best time is now.~ Chinese Proverb    Why men could choose to do yoga.     The operative word here is “choose”; it’s always about choice in everything we do.  We try to make karmically correct choices when we hold a conscious perceived value in what we [...]
