Poem

KindnessNaomi Shihab Nye

Before you know what kindness really is
you must lose things,
feel the future dissolve in a moment
like salt in a weakened broth.
What you held in your hand,
what you counted and carefully saved,
all this must go so you know
how desolate the landscape can be
between the regions of kindness.
How you ride and ride
thinking the bus will never stop,
the passengers eating maize and chicken
will stare out the window forever.

Before you learn the tender gravity of kindness,
you must travel where the Indian in a white poncho
lies dead by the side of the road.
You must see how this could be you,
how he too was someone
who journeyed through the night with plans
and the simple breath that kept him alive.

Before you know kindness as the deepest thing inside,
you must know sorrow as the other deepest thing.
You must wake up with sorrow.
You must speak to it till your voice
catches the thread of all sorrows
and you see the size of the cloth.

Then it is only kindness that makes sense anymore,
only kindness that ties your shoes
and sends you out into the day to mail letters and
purchase bread,
only kindness that raises its head
from the crowd of the world to say
it is I you have been looking for,
and then goes with you every where
like a shadow or a friend.

Tonight, I witnessed friendship.

October 24th, 2012

Tonight I saw a friend tear up, and another friend of ours stand true by her side. They were just talking about love and change and fear and courage…it came down to this. I am here, through thick and thin.

Wondering about a friends choices, their journey?

Just let them talk, and don’t give advice like you know better. Just see them for their flaws and don’t turn away when they blush. Just let them trip and fall and be there to hold them. Let them cry and play with them in the puddles of their tears. They are ahead of you in some ways  and behind you in others that may not seem clear in this moment. Just let loose and let life be the weird little journey that it is. Make sure they know that you see, admire, love and respect them. More than this, look them in the eye when they profess their struggles, and smile cause it’s forever that you get to know them. The friends that are lifelong, they will give it right back when you least expect it. I love my friends. I love them so much.

God’s Wounds
-Mark Nepo

Through the great pain of stretching
beyond all that pain has taught me,
the soft well at the base
has opened, and life
touching me there
has turned me into a flower
that prays for rain. Now
I understand: to blossom
is to pray, to wilt and shed
is to pray, to turn to mulch
is to pray, to stretch in the dark
is to pray, to break surface
after great months of ice
is to pray, and to squeeze love
up the stalky center toward the sky
with only dreams of color
is to pray, and finally to unfold
again as if never before
is to be the prayer.

beyond your body

September 29th, 2012

 

Our bodies house our spirits. They don’t define our spirits. You are amazing beyond your body. Let me say that again. You are amazing beyond your body.

You are going to make wrong and right decisions when it comes to caring for this beautiful architecture of  bones, blood, muscle, nerves, etc…but your SOUL. Oh, your soul. It’s going to live past everything else.

Here’s how you really create wellness and fitness in your life. Just say one selfless thing. Say it once. If it affects someone else, or houses someone else, or keeps someone warm, you have done it. You have made the world a better place. You’re fit.

Do all of this when it is really hard to do. I speak as a scrapper, streetwise, angry, old woman….be nice when the easy choice is to snap.

I like to think that we are given genetics like we are dealt cards in Vegas. It’s barely up to us. Our bodies are barely our decision. Yes, take care of it as much as you can. Beyond all of that. Just be nice.

Be generous and see what happens.

Don’t play the mediocre game that is so obvious. Work the hard road. The one that makes you a better, more authentic person. The one that brings more dimension and richness to your character, your perspective, your art.

Hold your hand out and help a friend or stranger out.  Let someone know that you are there to help, to listen, to love. And if it is you that needs help, ask for it.

You are amazing beyond your body. Inner Alignment. Outter alignment follows.

It’s the new black….

September 7th, 2012

 

 

I wish I could control the world….

I am so mad that I can’t.

I want everyone to put down their guns, their walls, their bubble gum.

Stop pulling your weight around. Just let go and tell me you love me, tell them you love them, scream it out and put your big penny in your endless fountain.

Oh, please, make a fool of yourself. Flap around in the gulf, spill your guts onto the deck, cry out in the night, howl at the moon….

Please join me on the fools journey, and spread your inexperienced wing. I will cower under it….

Tonight I passed by a neighbors house. They were blasting the most beautiful melody from their kitchen. They were kissing over their stove. They were giggling as the air felt beautiful and their home spread their hearts on their walls. Okay, that last part was my imagination.

The important part is that it inspired. Oh, symphony. Oh, sunset. Oh breeze blowing through. Oh perfect lighting. Those lovers have no idea that they changed my life tonight. More than this, I slowed down, and I witnessed love in someone other than myself.

Oh friends. Witness love.  See it out your window, through your door, in your ceiling, out your floor. Love. Love as an action, and an inward reflecting. Just devote to and pray for it. Welcome it, and send it away. Love…..keep on reaching for it and talking about it.

It’s the new black.

Meaning it will hurt you, but, oh, God, it’s worth it. Hurt, and then heal, and your love will get even bigger.

Love came, and became like blood in my body. It rushed through my veins and encircled my heart. Everywhere I looked, I saw one thing. Love’s name written on my limbs, on my left palm, on my forehead, on the back of my neck, on my right big toe…Oh, my friend, all that you see of me is just a shell, and the rest belongs to love. – Rumi

 

 

There is an almighty awareness.

 

One almighty awareness.

 

A thinking, compassionate awareness, of which you are a part.

 

Infinitely kind. All-knowing. All-loving. Distant as the furthest mote of dust in space, yet as near as the beating of your heart. Here and there, before and after, always and forever.

 

And whensoever you should call unto it, it answers you by name.

 

Just like that,
    The Universe

May I examine my mind in all actions and as soon as a negative state occurs, since it endangers myself and others, may I firmly face and avert it.

~ Tenzin Gyatso (born: 1935-07-06 age: 74) the fourteenth Dalai Lama

Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend… when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that’s present — love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure — the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience Heaven on earth. –Sarah Ban Breathnach 

 

Good and Bad- both are Guru”s for us in this Universe. If we see Good things, we feel like doing them. If we see bad things we feel like leaving them. It all Depends on Individual choices and Conception of things in Mind. We make a Mould of these things and follow them with firm formations in Mind. If bad is there we can recognize Good, In darkness only we know the value of Lights Brightness. – Sri Ramana.

No need to add water, expand naturally…..

August 23rd, 2012

 

 

My life continues to pry my heart and soul open. The experiences, each with many ingredients, continue to cook and serve. Today I learned that hard decisions have to come up and expand my understanding of the world and my place in it. I mourn and rejoice all in the same breath. I dance and wither in big and small ways. Whatever comes my way, I learn to loosen my grip a little more and ride the wave all the way to the sand. One thing I know for sure, I am always going to pick up, turn around, and get back out in the ocean.

Join me.

Art

August 13th, 2012

It takes time. It takes light. It takes wisdom. It takes love. Most of all…..it takes courage to peel away everything but what is important and be honest. Honest with fearless abandon.

 

 

Here is what I wish for you and me…..that we see goodness, grand gestures, long hugs and awkward moments as tiny bits of beauty. That we see and create beauty on a moment to moment basis, even when we feel lost, even when we are overwhelmed….that we feel love even when we feel attacked. Even in small insignificant moments – we feel whole.

I wish these things when I blow out candles….when I look around and want to tell everyone that my wishes every year are about them.

Art makes sense when all of this comes together inside of me and I see it on a wall or out the radio or beaming out of the people I meet. Art is when the outside world melds with my insides and we love each other, or even hate each other. Same difference.

Reading Finding Your Way Home, Melody Beattie

Sometimes you may feel like a lava lamp, bubbling out one feeling after another. That’s okay. Pure joy, integrity, passion, vitality, sensuality, spirituality – and our highest level of creativity- will be loosened when we set our emotional body free. Stop enduring, controlling, waiting, repressing, and telling yourself that life is just how it is and that feeling your feelings won’t change a thing. Let go. Go with the flow of your vital energy and what you know to be true. Value who you are and each burst of emotional energy that passes through. Pay attention to your thoughts and the emotional energy that’s connected to them. Don’t separate thoughts and feelings in the universe around you. Don’t disconnect them from yourself.

Feeling your feelings is how you change your life. Let each emotion pass through, and in the passing, know that you are reconnecting with your soul. Go back to the past as often as you need–whenever emotions and life get intense. Feel all you need to feel; then let it clear out of your energy field.  Become emotionally fluent.
