For me, freedom lies beyond my questions. 2 mins
There is a safe place
We all share.
The effortless breath
And beating of heart.
The quiet awareness
Beneath our thoughts.
Until we find that place
The shouting will go on.
I don’t plan these videos. There is no script. I thought of chopping the first 5 minutes off of this one. Then I realized a picture is indeed worth a thousand words.
This video itself, and the shift in my energy while making it, is what I am talking about happening in real time. For me, this is the joy of Life. Of presence finding it’s way home. To faith, hope and love.
Below is a link to the music I was playing in the background…
I recently saw the extent to which I’d been controlling both physical pain and the possible limitations that my body could offer me. I saw how every day I was protecting myself from the past.
Helped my a couple myofascial release sessions, I felt safe enough to let go of the protections that OTC pain meds offered. A week later it feels wonderful to be living in a different reality- physically, energetically and spiritually.
It’s not pain free. But it’s my reality, not dulled or masked.
And here I am, picking my nose.
Good morning, friends. I had a truly wonderful and peace-filled day so far, and just wanted to share something that was a big part of that.
Below is a You Tube video. Two Sanskirt mantras set to a soft guitar melody. To me it feels quietly hopeful in it’s gratitude. What a wonderful energy to get stuck in my head all day.
My suggestion is this. In choosing a more magical start to your day tomorrow, go to bed just a little earlier than usual. Maybe 30 minutes earlier. Then get up 30 min before you usually do. Turn this music on while your mind is still a bit foggy.
If at all possible, get outside. Look out the window if you can’t. Take at least 5 deep breaths. Couple of air squats. And walk slowly wherever your heart takes you, as you listen to this music.
Do yourself a favor and don’t google what the words mean. Just let it be. Let your heart rest in this new moment. It’s a new day. You are here. Keep breathing. If you find yourself humming the melody or softly singing along- let it flow.
Why not? It seems there are two or three distinct visions of America that are fighting for control. Why don’t we surrender the notion of one country and create two? 5 min video.
This blog has been renewed in a rather magical way. That story and why I choose to see it this way..
A few thoughts as I post here on WordPress for the last time.
