something to sing about

It may seem as if there is nothing to sing about. That we are being bombarded by outside forces and circumstances that lay us low. But, we have a recourse. We can seek out ways to lift our spirits for ourselves and for others. This intention changes everything. Our actions become healing. Our lives becomes … Continue reading something to sing about

UNMASK THE SOUL

It's Halloween but I have an idea. Instead of putting on a mask and costume, let's take them off. Let's take off the frowns and grimaces. Let's stop being so adult. Let's become child-like. Let's return to our innocent and hopeful true self and greet each other with deep joy and gratitude. May you be … Continue reading UNMASK THE SOUL

Don't be so frantic, what does it resolve? Instead, reset your mind on calm and abide in That. You are … Continue reading One Breath

BLOOMING

  Just for this moment, let go and completely accept where you are, as you are. Just now. In this moment. Let go of the expectation that someone else need change for you to find peace. Just for this moment, let go of all the preferences -letting your arms gently drop to your side, sigh. … Continue reading BLOOMING

Bring it

Maybe you're alive today to bring someone a message of love. Maybe you're alive just to be a reminder of hope. Maybe you're alive to bring a little sanity to the world with kindness and a loving presence. Maybe you're alive to bring joy.   May you bring to your day and this moment a reminder … Continue reading Bring it

Open

May your heart open and may you be happy. May your mind open and may you be tolerant. May you find reasons to love yourself  and all those around you. Always. In love.
