Healing

Standard

Healing.
Trusting that the wisdom
deep within you
can rise up and show you
what you need.
Closing your eyes
to the world outside
and diving deeper within.
Finding the source
of well-being.
Breathing deeply
and drawing from that source.
Opening your eyes
and returning to the world,
engaging from a healthy place,
a stable place, a wise place,
looking out into the world
with the eyes of compassion,
eyes that have seen
pain and healing
as two sides of the same coin.

What Will You Make?

Standard

The Source is endless.
What you draw from it
is up to you.
It is different for everyone
for everyone is different
here in the physical realm.
But the Source is energy,
pure and simple,
and we are of it
and we are it.
If we are Source
then we stand in a position
of limitless creator
wherever we are,
whatever we are doing.
The ways we express
that which we are
depends on where
we place our focus.
If you could have, be,
make, do, experience
anything at all,
what would it be?
Sit a while.
Close your eyes,
go inwards, be still.
Let yourself find center,
always there.
Feel the energy of life
pulsing through you,
every cell alive
with intelligence and purpose.
You too are a cell
of the Universal Body.
You too are alive
with intelligence and purpose.
Now, what will you make of this?

These Two Worlds

Standard

Afternoon, pouring rain,
blustery wind,
skies darkened
by immense thunderclouds,
and my body is tired
from a long morning hike
in the (almost) summer sunshine.
Memories dance through my mind–
forest shade and seas of ferns,
breezes so sweet
they were salvation
to my sun warmed skin.
How is it possible I can peer into
these two worlds at once:
the furious rain of reality
and the sweet heat of memory?
And sometimes reality is so sweet
and the memories pound in my mind
like an afternoon thunderstorm,
here in an instant,
gone in a flash.
Where am I, who am I
who knows these two worlds
yet belongs to neither?

Can You Feel It?

Standard

Why wait  for something
extraordinary to happen
to be fulfilled?
Take a deep breath.
Can you feel it?
Why wait for the world
to come to its senses
to experience peace?
Exhale.
Can you feel it?
Why wait for happiness,
a sense of belonging,
inspiration,
health,
connectedness?
Just sit still and breathe.
Everything you long for
is right within you.
You are the keeper of great treasures,
wealthy beyond measure.
Don’t sit there alone, brooding, waiting,
when you can come to know
the utter beauty of love’s true joy.
Walk to the door, fling it open, step outside.
Beckon the world to come see your treasure,
dazzling with the hope and the promise
of good days to come.
Don’t wait. Share it with us now.

You Are the Miracle

Standard

Don’t shrink, expand.
Now more than ever
this world needs
human beings to awaken
and allow their deepest essence
to pour forth,
helping the world,
healing the world,
inspiring the world,
celebrating the world,
this world where there
is so much beauty
concealed by so much suffering.
Step out of the suffering
and look up at the sky.
Walk into the forest,
listen to the water in the stream.
Sit atop the mountain peak,
let the sun and the wind
touch your face.
Go into the city,
love every single person you see.
The pendulum swings
again and again,
never stopping.
Beyond the extremes
of the pendulum’s swing
there is oneness,
forever, only oneness–
and this is the truth
of who you are.
Let the great one in you
breathe, speak,
think, create and act
from this oneness.
You are the miracle
we’ve been waiting for.
