(A)Wak(en)ing Up

I woke up
this morning!
Yes, I did!
Can you believe it?
It is true

* It is not fake news *
(ok, that was bad)

that I not only woke up
but, I am awake
alive and free
to be
M  E

Totally, committed
to this moment

Completely, in love
with this day

Absolutely, grateful
for everyone
and everything
as everyone
and everything
is serving me

and my
higher good

WE ARE L O V E

Whenever I complain
I disrespect
life itself
When I forget the blessing
of each and every breath
then I lose sight
of what it is
to be here

Until I stop
giving attention to my
(and/or the world’s) plight
to instead put my energy
and focus on all that is right
then I will perpetually be
on spin cycle

When I have expectations
of others and of things
so far out of my control
then I will continually
be disappointed

If I compare myself
to “them”
and see them
as “they”
instead of
“we”
then I create
separation
from all that
I am
and
we are

I am
and
We are
Love

We are
nothing
without
Love

Life is a teachable moment

I AM

I am
In acceptance
That I am not alone
That you are here
With me

006

I am
In acknowledgement
That I am connected
To eternal source energy
Within me

007

I am
In reverence
That I am supported
By your holy light
With me

008

I am
In gratitude
That I am blessed
By the divine insight
Within me

011

I am
In appreciation
For it all
And all that is
With me

012

I am
In love
With the gift
Of love
Within me

How connected are we, really?

We reside in a world that is more connected than ever, and yet in some ways, we can be equally disconnected.  That disconnect extends, more often than not, from ourselves.

If I may share what has been incredibly beneficial for myself (both professionally and personally) is two of my practices. Through sharing my hope is it may beneficial to you, or someone you know.

They are:

1) Living in complete Joy –  In order to achieve complete joy, my first step is to become mindful of the moment and to be able to feel the emotion of enjoying whatever it is I am doing not dependent upon circumstance or situation.  Like any other exercise, it takes commitment to achieve results, and part of this includes daily meditation. A very simple one is breathing in, smiling (visualizing my entire body smiling) and then breathing out releasing (and letting go of) whatever is no longer serving me.  Through meditation, I am able to control my thoughts rather than having my thoughts control me.  The focus though is not only on my thoughts but also my emotions, and feelings, while taking full responsibility for my actions and behaviors.  The more I allow myself to acknowledge that joy is possible at any place, and any time, the more I allow myself to embrace joy right now, which transcends all that I do and all that I am.

2) Unconditional Appreciation –  Coupled with living in complete joy is my practice of unconditional appreciation. Not only am I grateful, but I am consciously appreciating everyone and everything that is present in this moment. My focus is on what I have rather than what I do not in conjunction with focusing on the solution(s) rather than the problem. Every single person who comes into my life is for my own higher good. Every thing that I encounter is an opportunity to learn and to grow, and the more I am able to appreciate all I have right now, the more I am able to enjoy all that life has to offer.

How can I support and/or be of service to you?

 

I AM APPRECIATIVE

Of My Life

This morning, I woke up and opened my eyes yet again for another day.   I got out of bed, let my feet hit the floor, and without any assistance stood on my own two feet.  Without any conscious thought, I breathed in and out.   Into the bathroom I walked and there in the mirror I was introduced to my face, my body, my thoughts, my feelings, my circumstances, and my situations, and instead of looking away, I was able to smile embracing that this is the life of my dreams now.

Of My Love

Today, and each every day, is opportunity of infinite proportions to choose each and every thought, every word, every action, and I am fully responsible for my behavior.    Love is the light within that I choose to radiate allowing myself to become one with myself and the world around me.   Love not only of others, but of self,  of life, and love of living today embraced fully in the moment that is now.

Of My State

There may be circumstances and situations, there has been, and there will be, that will cause me to pause and to peer into the pond and to see myself in my own reflection.   My focus can either be on the problem(s) or the solution(s), but it is up to me to be fully accountable for my current state of being.    It is mine to choose to love myself as whole, to embrace the love that I am as enough, and while each and every day I get better and better, my life it is amazing and beautiful right now.

There is always something to be thankful for. (1)

 

My Two Favorite Words

From my tongue you taste like honey
Dripping like nectar from an endless pot
Of the Carniolan’s most illustrious
Lust for life’s boundless divinity
Yet for as sweet as you truly are
Your nectarous heart is tainted
by bitter doubt and trepidation
Artic reality from life’s stings
and other leather restraints
too often and even once
even once is too often
You are but a shadow
on a clear sunny day
unpleasantly displaced
irrevocably replaced
unforgivably misplaced
and neglected to silence
so if my love
I do not profess
and to my stranger alike
please, oh please forever realize
I am more grateful than you could
ever possibly know and even though
I do not show it or allow you to hear it
Today your sky it will will not cry
Today your sun will forever be bright
Today the stars will align inside the moonlight
That sparkles inside your conflicted eyes
