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?

Your Choice

Standard

Your thoughts give rise to your perception
which shapes your actions
which build your reality
which determines your experience of Life.
Look inside your mind.
What picture do your thoughts paint there?
If you do not like this picture,
paint a new one.
What you see in your mind
is ultimately your choice,
the only choice you can make really…
and it is your most basic power.
How will you wield it?

NaPoWriMo 2017 Day 20: Utterly Creative

Standard

I chose for today
to be a creative day
and then I realized
we are creating every day
whether we like it or not.
If we are caught
in monotonous routines
it might appear
that we’re not creating
and that we are not creative
but the truth is,
we are creating every single day–
creating with our thoughts
our words
and our actions,
creating with our likes and dislikes,
with the things we keep
and the things we throw away.
We are creating
within our relationships,
creating with the stories we tell
and the judgments we believe.
We create with our vision,
our perceptions,
our hopes and fears
and in our choices
of what we hold dear.
So the question is no longer
whether or not we are creative,
the question is
What do we want to create,
and how, and where, and why
and when and with whom?
The question is,
Will we create consciously?
The question is,
What will we do 
with this one precious life
when we realize
how truly, utterly,
unquestionably creative
we actually are?

*****************
I deviated from the NaPoWriMo prompt today. I was feeling tired (again) from a long, full day, and just didn’t feel like thinking of a sport or a game with which I am adequately familiar and that has a rich enough vocabulary associated with it to create a poem…

Cutting Words, Healing Words

Standard

Spoken words cannot be taken back.

Some words heal

and some cut deeper

than a knife.

When cutting words

are spoken to you,

offer healing words in return.

If your healing words

are not accepted,

let the silence stand

between you.

Sometimes space

and time

are the only medicine

that can dull

the pain of cutting words

spoken to you

and cutting words

spoken by you–

both kinds hurt.

Be discerning

with your words.

Choose.

At the end of your life

as you look back on your story

would you rather see

That you spoke

more cutting words

or healing ones?

There is great power in your mouth.

Wield it wisely.

Your Power

Standard

Ah this life,
this beautiful life,
where everything is new and fresh
in reality…
This life where,
if we can find one moment
of spaciousness in body
and clarity of mind,
we can experience heaven.
All we ever have is here and now;
everything else is just a story.
What happens when you believe
your stories?
If you notice that they frighten you,
bring stress to your body,
shut down your mind,
then investigate them.
A mind at peace with itself
has no choice but to project peace
upon the world.
Tell me,
are you ready to know your own power?

More Powerful Than You Could Know

Standard

It’s easy to fall into the trap
of thinking
What can I do to help the world?
I’m just one person.
But if it isn’t you and me,
every single one of us
working individually
to co-create a world and a life
in alignment with our deepest values,
then who will do it for us?
Therefore,
when you practice,
let yourself be inspired.
Even the tiniest bit of effort
may have far reaching effects,
may help beings seen and known
and those that we cannot yet perceive.
And if you don’t have a daily practice,
that’s fine, don’t worry.
Maybe just for today,
you can take a moment to sit and breathe
and wish for all beings to know happiness
and the root of happiness.
The smallest effort on your part
circles out, creates coherence,
adds its energy
to the energy of those wanting to awaken.
Your tiniest awakening
contributes to the world’s awakening.
You are more powerful
and more important than you could know.
