And in this moment, just now, within my chest there stirs a feeling, soft along the edges yet strong in the center, warm and inviting it reaches out to me and through me... emotions come with it, a mixture of joy, longing, compassion, appreciation... this feeling, these emotions they fill me from this center place, and from this place they spread out into this world... from me to you, I send this love for all that you are, in this moment... thank you... namaste
Raindrops dance against the window, warm spring rain falls as the ground drinks deeply, waking from the long winter sleep the earth revives with these warm showers... in the flower beds small violas from last year are the first to boldly bloom, even the crocus seems sluggish in the shadow of their bright delight... and so I find myself facing the sky as the rain comes down, and like the earth letting this warm water bring me back from my slumber... namaste
The pink and orange of the coming sun stream over the horizon, coming a little earlier each day like the warmth that seems to reach a little further into the remaining snow... today as I watch the sunrise, I can see the shift north, the orange glow is coming from such a very different place than it did in March... somethings in life are like this, one day you look and notice how things have changed since you last saw them, and today the sunrise reminds me to slow down, take stock, and see the changes that happen, so often lost in the daily moments... namaste
The bright sun beams through the eastern windows creating warm pools on the floor, the cat chases the light that bounces off the bird feeder as it swings in the breeze, patches of grass in the yard outnumber the snow and along the edge the grass seems to be turning green... I feel myself waking up with the world as spring arrives, the call to step out into the world once again is heard... namaste
When I am at my best..... getting to know how I am seen, and how I might see myself.
The rains have stopped overnight and I am greeted by the sound of birds this morning, their song catches my attention, these first songs of spring, and within my body I feel something shift as I listen to the call and response echo across the yard, I can feel a sense of anticipation, of excitement begin to arise, and I find myself whistling as I join this lovely chorus... namaste
Outside the last of winter’s small snowflakes fall, melting on the sidewalks and roads, in the air you can hear winter’s last gasp, spring has already begun to sing in the trees and in the flower beds life is stirring once more... in my heart I feel these changes, I feel love stirring again for the world around me as I feel the remains of grief slowly melting away like this falling snow, it is there but i am no longer feeling stuck in its drifts... namaste
A clear and cloudless sky is the canvass for the sunrise today, the low hanging quarter moon glows a warm yellow, the pastel orange gives way through yellow and pale blue into the receding night skies, the trees on the eastern horizon silhouetted by the approaching dawn a sharp black against the colours... starting this day with such beauty focuses my attention on this moment as I enjoy the subtle changes of this sunrise... namaste
Being brave is not always about running into a burning building, doing something dangerous... sometimes, it is simply about stepping into the unknown and trusting it will work out.
