Love | Life – And, the Rose that knows

Love turns
Love burns
Love yearns

But, so to, does life …..

In silence, I find my inner voiceIn darkness,I find my eternal lightIn light,I find myeternal darknessIn In me,I find my truth (1)

She walked into the room
with a but rose
and a dainty stare
and the only question
was if she was representing life
or was it death
as she held out her left hand

Life needs
Life feeds
Life bleeds
But, so to, does love…..

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?

NOW…NOW….NOW…..

This moment
THE most pivotal
In all history
To stay
Or go
To turn right
Or go left
Or to take it slow

These are but a few
Choices to be made
In this moment
THE most pivotal
In all history

That was
For it is now
Then
And this
Is now.

Forgotten
the moment
it will be
THE most pivotal
in all history

As quickly
As it came
And went
But without it
We would have not
Gotten from there
To here.

Choosing…..

.
Action over complacency
Building over destroying
Compassion over hate
Determination over doubt
Enthusiasm over apathy
Freedom over submission
Greatness over mediocrity
Healing over hurting
Inspiration over intimidation,
Joining over corrupting
Kissing over conflict
Love over fear……
~Bryan Hayes

WE FAILED.

As a culture, we fail
when we let fear; hate and/or violence
become social norm.
As a society, we fail
when we shun “them” instead
of embracing them.
As a community, we fail
when even one member dies
feeling unloved.
~ Bryan Hayes
