What Will You Do?

Standard

Let the wind blow through you,
Let the earth support you,
Let the water flow through you,
Let the fire warm you,
Let the ethers inspire you.
You, descendant of the stars,
you, who have inherited
the vast inner landscape of consciousness—
what will you do with this one precious life?

Love & Fear

Standard

The more I try to get unstuck
the more stuck I am.
If I can relax, look around
and accept the fact that I’m stuck
then I can better find the way out
of whatever rut I’ve fallen into.
First, I look at my thoughts.
Is the story I’m telling
helping me to be happy?
If not, it’s time to rethink
my vision of this moment.
When I allow them to be,
everyone around me
is the love of my life.
When my heart is shut down
and I believe my fear thoughts,
even the most innocent souls
become my enemies.
How can it be that I have this much love
and this much fear in me
all at once?

Every Moment a Choice

Standard

With so many possibilities
how can we choose
where to go
what to do
what to say
and to whom?
But choose we do,
whether consciously
or not–
every moment
we are making a choice.
If we were to zoom out
and look at this life
from a different perspective,
we’d see that we are on a tiny blue dot
in a small galaxy
somewhere in the
inconceivably vast expanse of space
in a universe about which
so little is known.
We can make a big deal of ourselves
or we can take ourselves lightly.
We can be blasé about what we have
or we can see how precious this life is.
It is always a choice.
Friends, take a deep breath
and choose wisely.
