You start living fully
...give what you most deeply desire to give,
every moment you are choosing to live,
or you are waiting.
why would a flower hesitate to open?
now is the only moment.
rain drop let go
become the ocean.
possibility is as wide
as the space
to hold it.
I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart)
You start living fully
When you travel,
When you read,
When you listen to the sounds of life…
Since feeling is first
i am never without it
(anywhere i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling)
i fear no fate
(for you are my fate, my sweet)
i want no world
(for beautiful you are my world, my true)…
I would like to live like a river flows
since feeling is first
who pays any attention
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you…
A liminal space
I would like to live
Like a river flows
Carried by the surprise,
Of its own unfolding…
Earth's the right place for love: I don't know where it's likely to go better.
A liminal space: the place of transition, waiting, and not knowing. Truthfully, this is where I sit right now. A place of not knowing what the right direction is. Can I be so quiet as to listen to my heart, my body, and feel? The past 6-months have been a flurry of diving into work, work that I love and have chosen to dive into…
We are so blessed. We are so loved.
Be patient. Be mindful. Be loving. See the best in others. Prioritize feeling good. Prioritize relationships. Make time to do nothing. And really, just one thing at a time. Eat slowly. Be thankful. Be grateful. Rest. But don't do any of these things like they're a checklist. Keep them as reminders, especially when the tides are rough…
Slowness is the key
I've been home for 3-months now, but I still feel like I'm traveling. This is a good sign. I've landed this ship with ease, and with so much thanks to the incredible amount of support I've received from from close friends and family. The bay is a wonderful place to call home…
All signs point to India
Stillness...everywhere, always. Nowhere to go, nothing that has to be done. Always here. Perfect, brilliant, stillness. Here are the directions: take the pathless path till you find the gate-less gate that swings open to reveal what was never hidden and never on the other side….
Off the beaten path
There are so many things I want to say about India, but it's too much. To much to put into words really. Anyone who's spent some time here knows this. India is everything...sometimes everything all at once. When you slow down enough you really begin to experience the magic of this land…
The tourist's path is well beaten; You can 'trek' in the jungle, hangout with a tiger, ride an elephant, and go white water rafting all for the easy price of 1000 baht! Its almost overwhelming the amount of advertising you see for these adventures. I had almost two-weeks to kill in Chiang Mai…
