For What It’s Worth

for what it's worth

If I keep saying ‘thank you’ to Life, I feel the Love of It’s presence. Be it simple beauty like this, or the physical challenges of my body- if I just breathe, and give thanks for the experience of it, and keep breathing….a subtle sense of awe quickens my spirit.

Gratitude opens the door for Grace.

I feel more alive. I sense the eternal nature of my awareness as it experiences a precious moment that will never be exactly the same again. It feels like a gift.

This recognition adds more gratitude. And grace.

All at once I am aware of the great expanse of experience that is my life. The joy, the heartache. So much beauty….and from here, from within this moment of heart centered presence- all that once did not feel beautiful, now does.

The alchemy of this relationship with Life changes completely when I stop thinking. The endless search for solutions and control mercifully ceases. I just am. Here. Now.

I know myself~ beloved on this Earth.

Somethin’s happenin’ here. What it is, ain’t exactly clear.

We can love one another through this. We can see our truth, and live it, without the fear that will divide us.

May this version of a classic bring peace to your heart. The social cry of those (and these) times, fused with the love and peace of a kirtan flow. For what it’s worth…

 

Letting It All In

Can you breathe deeply into this moment? Can you let all of you in?

It’s a powerful thing, every time I am all in.

This is an eyes wide open meditation. Outside if possible, alone in Nature or on the streets of your city. Take a 15 minute walk with me….and every expression of you.

Day 1- Trusting My Body

In the previous video I talked about my fears around not being able to control physical pain and limitation. In deciding to stop the efforts I was making with ibuprofen and inhalers to control that pain and limitation, there is a wonderful feeling of adventure.

Desire. Obligation. Big Difference.

This video talks about noticing fear. As I’ve shared many times on this blog, the surest way to continue to suffer is to judge that which is causing it.

This isn’t a condemnation of fear. The fear of being afraid is also a fear. I still have fears, and in accepting their presence I am free to work with them, and get beyond them.

Excavation Breath

What’s triggering you lately?

Social distancing? Or perhaps those that don’t? Trump? Or those that hate on him? The ol’ retirement fund tanking? No money for rent? How will I feed my family?

Fear of dying? Sigh. It’s all getting real now, isn’t it?

Hmmm. Maybe for you it’s just the cabin fever, I hate being restricted itch. It doesn’t matter what it is. They are all diving boards if you want them to be. Launching points, if you allow them to be, into deeper healing and freedom.

You will not be the same after doing some of this. Take the feeling of a good cry and multiply by 10.

Aptly named, this is a –dig up and toss the fuck out-approach to your buried emotion. The only shovel you need is your breath. And the courage and self worth it takes to look at your suffering and say “Get in the backseat, friend. I’m taking the wheel!”

So, I’m not gonna explain the process. Jeff does that in the video. I will just offer that if it resonates, but you don’t happen to be sad, afraid or pissed off at the moment, wait till you are. You will need the authenticity and momentum of the felt moment to get started, and keep going. And of course you want access to some privacy. Let the noise come on out. Energy needs vibration to leave the body.

Many thanks to Jeff Brown. For all his inner work and the books, videos and written posts that it has birthed.
