I Love You, Thank You!

I don’t have time to do anything but love you, and yes, I fail a thousand times over whenever I judge, whenever I complain, whenever I do anything that is not loving and kind, because Heaven is right here right now in this moment. It is the only reality there is, and everything else is an illusion.

If you are here with me,
thank you.
I love you.
If you are away from me,
somewhere else,
thank you.
I love you.
If you agree with me.
Thank you.
I love you.
If you disagree with me.
Thank you.
I love you.
If you like me.
Thank you.
I love you.
If you don’t,
thank you.
I love you.

There is too much living to be done before my life turns to dust, so this day I must not crawl to a start but rather I must spring to the finish knowing I have given it my all.  I have left someone feeling better than than they arrived. I have made someone laugh, or even someone cry, out of love and happiness.

If I am alone
I am happy
to be here and now
in my own company
If I am with someone
I am happy
To be  here and now
in their company
If I succeed
I am happy
That I tried,
and it worked
If I fail
I am happy
That I tried,
and I will try again

I cannot lose, because there is no win or lose, but rather merely a single thread of existence with moments that only judge as being good or bad.  It is only that feel happy or sad, but I know not 99.99% of the world around me.  I only know what is real, which is this moment, and I cannot assume or judge, or try to alter or change anyone else’s moment.

I am so incredibly grateful
For you
Thank you
I love you
I am so incredibly grateful
For myself
Thank you
I love being me
I am blessed
To have have you in my life
Thank you
I love you
I am blessed
That you were in my life
Thank you
I love

I am blessed
Grateful
And loved
Unconditionally
so how can I do anything
but love myself
and others
unconditionally?

Thank You!.png

As I Am, As You Are

I love you
But, may not necessarily
Like you
(all the time)
You Love Me
But, may not necessarily
Like me
(all the time)

I like you
But, may not necessarily
Be in Love with you
You like me
But, may not necessarily
Be in Love with me

We can like one another
And, can agree to disagree
We can love one another
As people, as souls
Even with opposing viewpoints
Because we can choose
To go beyond the points
To view each other
As people,
As souls

You and I are one, but equally unique.

What works for one is not necessarily going to work for all.

Every person has their own unique authenticity that is a gift to the world, and each person has their own unique authentic gift to give to the world.

In this world, I call my own, it is not my time or place to judge what someone else does or doesn’t do if it is distinctively unique and different even than the way I perceive the world to be.   I will though stand up, or sit down, as is appropriate for those who can not stand for themselves or so that someone is not sitting alone.

As long as someone is praying for peace, for love, I care not how they pray or to whom.  As long as someone is being kind and loving, I care not where they are from, or where they are going.

As long as someone holds value in this moment, they are worth my valuable time, and I am willing to give that to anyone regardless of if they are in line with how I look at life from my tiny window.

Forgive Me, Please….

Please
Forgive me
🙏
Anytime I lose my head
And complain
About anything
That has happened to me,
While seemingly natural,
It means that I am stuck in the past
And not living in the moment
Worse, I’m not being grateful for what is
Being completely here
Present and focused
On what I have
Blessed for everything
For everyone
Without condition

Please
Forgive me
🙏
Anytime I lose my head
And if I do complain
About anything
That has happened to me,
Allow me the sanctuary
Even if means momentarily
I am venting about the past
And not living in the moment
Knowing full well
I’m not being grateful for what is
Or, being completely here
Present and focused
On what I have
Blessed for everything
For everyone
Without condition
And, I too
Will hold space
For you

Forgive me

Let’s Each Be Us

At the end of the day
I have to be me
That’s all I can be
Nothing less, nothing more
It may, or may not
Fit neatly into your paradigm
But, at the end of the day
I have to be me
That’s all I can be

You may not know me
And, even if you do
Do you see me?
Do you hear me?
And, even if you do
You may not know me

IMG_8678.JPG

At the beginning of the day
I want you to be you
That’s all I want you to be
Nothing less, nothing more
It may, or may not
Fit neatly into my paradigm
But, at the beginning of the day
I want you to be you
That’s all I I want you to be

Find Me, Take Me, Escape Me – From Me

Find me
In the air that we breathe
Find me
Under the stars we share
Find me
Just follow the rays of the sun
Find me

Beckon me not
To the place I have been
Forward I must
Forge into the untold story
Courageously
Charging without any sword
Or shield
Into the magical unknown
Of love
And, wonder, where worlds
Not collide
But, open, from the inside

I Am Eternally Blessed, Thank You

Today
Once again, I had the great fortune
To wake up, open my eyes
and get out of bed

Today
I won the lottery
The universe showered me with everything
I need to make it happy and joyful

Today
I am eternally blessed
For every single person
who has ever graced my path

Today
I am immeasurably grateful
That I see each as neither good or bad
But all, every one, as integral to the journey

Today
I am so incredibly appreciative
For every experience I have ever had
As they all are a part of life’s unfolding

Today
There is nothing left to say
When it comes to the  end
Except,  “Thank You!”

Uncommon Thoughts on Common Things #1

My philosophy is that we can only focus one thing at one time, and as such, we can either focus our energy on what we want (which is what is most common) or what we have. I have chosen to focus on the latter by practicing unconditional gratitude for everything and everyone.   In doing so, the more I am thankful for what I have, the more I feel deep satisfaction with life in the moment.   Coupled with that, what I want will manifest itself organically if I only allow it to be through my thought and action.

It was only a couple of years ago when I taught vision board classes, and up until last year, I have had multiple vision boards up in my office.   When I became really honest with myself what I put on those boards were not really what I wanted, but rather, what I thought I wanted.  Those are two very different things.

Through my research, I would ask those I worked with the question not only what do you want, but “What do you really want?”  The reason?  Because, while a relationship, for example, was often an answer was it really what they wanted?

Being in a relationship does not necessarily equate to instant happiness. In fact, many relationships are toxic, abusive even.  Worse, a lot of them were miserable being themselves and their thinking was that by being in a relationship it would save them from their own demise.  Some it did, but most of the time, whatever they felt prior to the relationship was what caught up with them while in the relationship.

Through this, and other personal revelations, I became increasingly more focused on the daily practice of being grateful for what I have and where I am right now. If I am single, I am making the very best of being single and enjoying it to the hilt.  If I am in a relationship, I am doing the same.  And, this is my practice across all aspects of my life.

This also is not something that is part of a new year tradition.  In fact, as much as I honor and love to celebrate, I am partaking less and less in conventional norms like making resolutions for the new year. That is, in part, due to time becoming more and more of an illusion.

I saw no difference between my day on Monday (the 31st) and Tuesday (the 1st).   The calendar may have changed, but that was about it.   Instead of focusing on time in a more traditional linear line, my only reality is now.

All I can control is right now.   Everything else I cannot. I can plan for tomorrow. I can hope that tomorrow will be better than today, and I know it will be, but my energy is staying present and enjoying whatever I am doing right now.

No matter the day, the year, I may not know exactly what I want, but I can always be grateful for what I have.  It does not mean I do not have goals, dreams, ambitions, but those I put out into the universe and detach from the outcome.

I write letters to myself, and write stories about how it feels to have received whatever it is I want or to have something I desire accomplished.  I see it as already being done, but again, I give that attachment away.

The common question is, “What do you want?”  or “what are you doing?”  (meaning what are you doing to get closer to what you want) but quite unique is the question, “What are you grateful for?”
