I sit…

I sit.
I breathe.

I sit with patience.
I sit with impatience.

I sit with an open heart.
sometimes  begrudgingly.

I sit and let go.
over and over again.

I sit with this life as an offering.

I sit with my vow to not harm,

waiting with compassion
for the Ocean’s next wave…

Metta…

~ Metta Prayer ~
 May all beings be peaceful. 

 May all beings be happy. 

 May all beings be safe. 

 May all beings awaken to 

 the light of their true nature. 

 May all beings be free.

know who you are…

in the thick of things, the darkness and difficulty, don’t forget who you are. you are Love, luminous and open.meet life with empathy, with compassion, and the steady, purposeful, and unshakable strength that comes from being grounded in Love.

[…if you want a master class in what happens when we allow our wounds to close up and drag us into a bitter anger, and then what happens when this is met with empathy, compassion, and courage, watch the end scenes of Moana. be a healer. meet life with empathy, compassion and courage grounded in Love.]

flow like a river…

“In the struggle between the stone and water, in time, the water wins.” ~Japanese Proverb

love and light will endure, friends. align yourselves with and center yourselves in love. and keep on keeping on ~j
