– I took the picture earlier today, it’s from Opal Beach on Santa Rosa Island, Florida, where I’m currently loving life. Tomorrow it’s back to the wonderful city, New Orleans :)
at any given moment
a multitude of thoughts are fluttering through the mind
a bright intention singing from the heart
translated into a thousand directions
always almost becoming
nearly in existence
butterflies ready to shift reality
Today I spent all day in a workshop, examining assumptions about inner power and limitations to happiness. I mean, that’s the short version. The very short version. It was very Anthony Robbins’ish, which is to say a little hyper with lots of catch-phrases, and a fair amount of shouting YES! I’d received this workshop as a gift from a friend and had decided to just show up with an open mind and see what might happen. I definitely left feeling enriched – and also a little amused with the whole show of it.
Anyway, this Sanskrit prayer was hanging in the hallway, and in a way it did the exact same job in just a minute that the workshop was doing in a whole day; reminding me to be present, and live my life well. Now.
it’s almost time to say goodbye and let go, in gratitude, of yet another year..
it’s been a rough year, so intense and full of challenges forcing me to mobilize all my strengths more times than I can count. and it’s been a year so full of purpose and insight that I can only bow my head in gratitude and feel blessed. no matter what next year will bring, I know it will be magical. probably not easy, but definitely magical.
this year more than ever, I hope we only carry with us the things, and people, that brings us joy and inspiration and love – that serves our progress. so with only one day left of 2013, it’s the last chance to find peace with any conflicts in our lives. don’t carry it into the new year. it’s time to let go and leave behind everything that is no longer serving us. let go of anger and hurt, let go of regrets and doubts. only bring with us the thoughts and feelings that makes us smile, that warms our hearts and gives us hope. I’m sure we all know exactly what to let go of and what to bring with us forward in life.
however you’re wrapping up the year, I hope you will be happy and feel loved and that you will shine like the beautiful person you are.
Happy New Year ♥
recently I’ve been thinking a lot about how we communicate. how we often say a just little less than what’s accurate or cover up the inconvenient. usually there’s all different kinds of double or triple communication going on, sometimes with completely opposing meanings. irreconcilable confusion. it makes me tired. it has become almost unbearable to carry on a conversation with someone who insist on the charade. it just seems pointless. maybe it’s too frightening to admit the internal circus sometimes going on or maybe it’s just a question of blind spots but seriously, have you ever had one of those ‘cut the crap’ kind of talks? and did that not feel good? it probably felt a little nerve wrecking when you were just about to plunge head first into honesty but afterwards, when everything was clear, no pretending and no confusion, didn’t it feel good? like exhaling your entire soul kind of good? I think that feeling is worth a little nerve wrecking.
once in a while you will meet someone whose words actually match what they express non-verbally. I love when that happens. it gives me hope and fills me with gratitude – and I’m pretty sure it actually makes my heart glow a little.
he is no longer you
and you are no longer just one
but an expanding reflection
of what was once perceived
to be just him
