The green light, painted on glass, a swirl of mind, lost in wonder, as trees of light bow to the other shore.

 

September 04 2020

Finding the light in a troubled world

Hand in hand with friends

Looking for the beauty

Walking this path together

We are not alone

 

September 03 2020

In the same way that one powerful moment can cause lasting trauma. One powerful moment can transform it. Healing is possible. Never give up hope

 

September 03 2020

Transformation of our habit energies is truly possible, all it takes is the right insight. Have patience, and just keep taking those little steps. One day, transformation will come.

 

September 03 2020

Into the darkness

She breathes the light

Ever transforming

Showing herself

For just this moment

She’s gone

With the movement

Of the wind

 

September 03 2020

Today is a new day, greet it with an open heart.

 

September 02 2020

Fleeting blaze

Phantasms grace

For just a little while

 

September 02 2020

All credit for my pics, to Mother Earth : )

 

September 1 2020

The interwoven breath of life reflects smilingly on the vast. On these shores, I can see light from here, as the whole of heaven is reflected to the sky.

 

August 31 2020

I’m afraid, but my heart feels vast. I have sadness, but I have unlimited joy. I can’t see the future, but I keep taking steps anyways. My heart has been broken, but the love I have to give is unlimited. So, I keep walking on this path with my heart wide open.

 

August 31 2020

Sometimes the moment hits you just right, for me was the sound of crickets.

 

August 31 2020

Trees on fire like the burning sun, imprinted in my soul like baby blue skies, and golden clouds. This old song still playing notes in the depths of my soul. From time to time the sound breaks forth, and the longing begins.

 

August 30 2020

One small insight at a time our world view changes, and how we react to the world changes. Just keep taking those steps one by one, and every now and then you will see something that you missed before, and it will change the way you see the world from that day on.

 

August 30 2020

We are all breathing under the same great sky. The view may be different, but we all share the same womb of life.

 

August 29 2020

I like to sit out in the sun to get vitamin D naturally. For some reason about 80% of the time I fall asleep like a cat. It’s just so soothing out there that next thing you know I’m drifting.

 

August 29 2020

Many of us are waiting for the ideal conditions before we can be happy. The truth is, happiness must be found right in the midst of every day life. No matter who you are there will be suffering, sorrow, and joy. It is possible to have suffering but still have profound joy.

Long ago I was very poor living in a 400 sq ft apt. I would dream everyday about escaping that place. Later in life, I realized too late, that those were my best days. Only thing is I couldn’t see it at the time. My mind was overwhelmed with looking for something else.

 

August 29 2020

On these shores a lonely heart looks to the sea, while the wheel of life moves without ceasing. The universe churns, and this moment appears. We see this moment as me and mine through these eyes. But these very eyes are cosmic motion themselves. Unbounded sight on life’s horizon.

 

August 27 2020

No one dares to ask the sky why she dreams in colors. Her fleeting light painting the world. From heart to heart her light reflects, and on that day a smile is born.

 

August 26 2020

It is one thing to be a kind person, it is another thing to let someone take advantage of that kindness. Unacceptable!!!

 

August 26 2020

In the depths of green and sunlight blues Mind moves on the notes of a deep fantasy

 

August 24 2020

I love fall so much, I used to have fall leaf placemats that I would use year round. Lol. I would think of fall all year long waiting for it’s return. Not this year, I have appreciated every season with my whole heart, when fall comes I will be delighted too.

 

August 24 2020

Mindfully drinking my coffee I smile.

 

August 24 2020

I hope everyone has a beautiful day. We have turned round once again in the vastness of space. As the arc of light moves across our surface birds sing in celebration. Their song a tumultuous joy flowing out to the heavens. May we carry a sliver of that joy throughout our day.

 

August 22 2020

Sometimes you are just doing your everyday thing when a powerful moment of clarity hits you and sheds light on your actions. I had one of those moments last night and realized how wrong I was. I am appreciative for moments like that, they really show you where you need change.

 

August 21 2020

A little bit of rain, a bit of imagination, the whole world is your reflection.

 

August 21 2020

Bits of the great ocean falling from the sky Wrapped in the comfort of her dim light My heart is at ease on this rainy day

 

August 21 2020

Life is beautiful.

 

August 21 2020

A still heart and mind reflect the world exactly as it is Our thoughts are like ripples on the water that distort the image it reflects When the image is distorted you cant see the reflection in it’s true form But once the water is still it reflects beautifully

 

August 20 2020

Where is this moment to be found? Before and after are only remnants. Walking on this cliff, the razors edge of time.

 

August 20 2020

Looking through the window of time, the whole universe reflects in a gleam of light. Oh how subtle the light rays shine on the mountains afar, as I close my eyes and dream to the sky.

 

August 19 2020

Waking up this morning my heart is filled with so much gratitude and warm love. I send this out to everyone, from my heart to yours, may everyone feel love.

 

August 19 2020

The world is like the most beautiful music.

 

August 18 2020

A poem I wrote 7 months ago

Thay the great silent one
Through his great silence the whole cosmos shows itself
Flashing the truth moment by moment
Quieting the mind in the presence of this great ocean
The door to the deathless is wide open

Won’t you look into the heart of this flower
Wont you look at that sand grain shinning in the night sky
Reflecting back in your eye

Walking like thunder, as gentle as a lamb
Oceans of compassion, flowing like rain
He sits with a smile, moment by moment
meeting us at the source

Wont you join him

 

August 18 2020

You are more beautiful than there are even words enough to describe. You are the entire cosmos expressing life in this moment. The stars are the very beat of your heart. You are constantly arising in the great sea of unbounded life. You are simply miraculous.

 

August 18 2020

Entering the formless is simply a matter of mind.

 

August 18 2020

Truth is to be found nowhere but right here. Right in the midst of action, right in the midst of sorrow and joy. It just is as it is. This moment is dynamic, it contains within it the whole. There’s nothing that needs to be done, just this moment.

 

August 17 2020

I don’t usually drive at night. I had to go take care of some things, on the way home I had to stop 4 times. Once for a cat crossing the road, twice for deer, and once to snap a pic. Lol.

 

August 17 2020

I miss ripe peaches, I live in Washington state and you can’t get a ripe peach in the store. It used to be that during summer you could buy them ripe. The kind that when you eat them the juice spills out. Those were the days.

 

August 16 2020

The skies are beautiful this evening. It’s hot but windy, it is quite lovely. I was traipsing around in the woods and ran across the most adorable snake, I looked down to change the setting on my camera, when I looked back up he was already gone. Lol.

 

August 16 2020

In Japan there was this tree damaged by the atomic bomb, it appeared dead. A tree doctor who was said to know if there was still life in a tree just by touching it said the tree could live. All but the central root was dead. He was able to save the tree, just as he said.

Many of us are like this tree, there are things that can happen to us in life that makes us feel like our heart has died. But deep in our heart there is still life. Just keep loving every day, little by little the heart can bloom again.

 

August 16 2020

A thread invisible to the eye ties together all of existence. On this thread the universe dances in splendor.

 

August 16 2020

Love with all of your heart.

 

August 16 2020

There is something subtle in the existence of things, perhaps you will find it in a ray of light, a breeze, or a feeling.

 

August 16 2020

We do not belong to ourselves alone, our lives also belong to so many others. That is part of why our existence is so precious. Even if people aren’t aware of it, our existence means more than even they can know. We are a part of the whole of existence, we change everything.

 

August 15 2020

Late summer light blanketing the earth, a hint of fall in the air. Golden grasses shine bright, while the first leaves dance slowly to the ground, in a sea of green.

 

August 15 2020

We never know what day is our last, every single moment is precious no matter how mundane. Live them with your entire heart and soul, when you can.

 

August 14 2020

Flowing serenely in a river of light, yellow flower reflections floating on the vast deep. His feet reach down into the vast while his eyes marvel at the reflections of time. With these wings, his heart can soar without flight.

 

August 14 2020

I admire the expression of trees, from the moment they put out their first leaf they begin to glow bright. They glow through spring and summer as the sunlight filters through. Come fall before sleep they do not cry, but celebrate with a beauty that could bring anyone to tears.

 

August 13 2020

Cosmic elements arranging joyfully. (reposted)

 

August 13 2020

The beat of her heart in time with her wings. A little closer to heaven, she flies free. Drafting the currents with ease she finds no hindrance. She reads the voice of the wind, it is the sound of her own heart. A language understood without sound. (reposted)

 

August 13 2020

Despite all the turmoil in our world, life remains a precious gift. What a beautiful world we live in.

 

August 13 2020

Something to consider when you take that next breath. Oxygen only makes up around 21% of the air we breathe. Nitrogen takes first place at around 78%, 4% comes from water vapor, and 1% from Argon. There are also other elements as well.

 

August 12 2020

Our world is so beautiful that it’s hard to believe it’s real sometimes. The beauty and the colors just take my breath away.

 

August 12 2020

Cry not for the ashes of our Republic. For what use are your tears, when the house has already burned half way to the ground?

 

August 12 2020

Lies upon lies, Democracy has faded to not. Digging through the ashes, the remains of the Republic are not found. The show goes on, and people delight in it, while the sand washes from under their feet.

 

August 12 2020

Things are not always as they seem. We often think things must go in a certain order, but nature has her own plans. This begs the saying, “it wasn’t supposed to go this way”.

 

August 12 2020

At the intersection of time and space matter is manifesting bright. There is not one thing that does not contain the other. Life in the ten directions arises simultaneously.

 

August 12 2020

Our amazing Sun is busily converting Hydrogen into Helium at the rate of 600 million tons per second. It is nearly 93 million miles away, yet we can stand here on earth and feel the warmth of it. Good morning to all, may you enjoy the rising of our star today.

 

August 11 2020

Dream like fire

Laugh like rain

Love like the sky

Feel like thunder

Walk like the stars

 

August 11 2020

May all beings be free of suffering, may all of us find comfort and true joy.

 

August 11 2020

The tapestry of life is woven from time. Everywhere we look life is shining bright, and manifesting beautifully. From moment to moment we are continued on, in this great mandala of wonder.

 

August 11 2020

Sunlight only takes 8.3 minutes to reach earth, but a single photon takes anywhere from 10,000 to 170,000 years to get from the center of the sun to the surface. Enjoy those ancient rays of light.

 

August 10 2020

My neighbor paved his drive & around his house. Pine needles are already collecting. He is out there constantly clearing them away. I feel kinda bad. Makes me remember the Dalai Lama quote, “Sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck”.

 

August 10 2020

Time moves

Melodies of moments long past linger

Sweet and fragrant like spring

Winds of change stirring the phantasms of yesterday

Like wind moving leaves in the fall

Written in the lines, and the glimmer of my eyes

Read by the smile in my heart

 

August 10 2020

Just breathe, and relax and take one step, that’s it, that’s all. Take that step with all of your heart and mind, in that moment you are unified, and can experience the moment it it’s totality and freshness.

 

August 09 2020

I think I need to get out today. Must go find some moving water. Hope everyone has a lovely day.

 

August 09 2020

Reaching for the timeless sky, these branches meet from all corners of time and space. All of the past, and future meet at the intersection of now. They mingle and sing on the passing breezes of time.

 

August 09 2020

Stoke the fires of your heart from time to time.

 

August 09 2020

Thoughts, emotions, and reactions are all part of the tapestry of the whole. They are not something to be gotten rid of, it is a matter of how we see them.

 

August 08 2020

With an open heart, I stood in the darkness of the forest. I looked up to the vast velvet night sky, from there galaxies without number entered my vision. The scent of pines wafted through the air, as they silhouetted the horizon. While, cricket song sang the night a lullaby.

 

August 08 2020

I hope everyone has a most beautiful day. What a day it is to be here, rising on the wing of the Milky Way galaxy. Our bright star has filled the day with light once again, lighting the way for our many adventures.

 

August 08 2020

Your life is constantly manifesting from the entire universe. There’s nothing else, it truly is just this.  It’s wonderful, it’s truly truly wonderful.

 

August 07 2020

Life is beautiful.

 

August 07 2020

On this road I walked treading aeons of light. To whom will I tell of my travels to nowhere?

 

August 07 2020

The air smelled sweet like flowers, the summer day was cool. I wandered the fields of time, with these ancient steps. The breezes of yesterday mingled with, tomorrow. Time fell by the wayside and my breath sailed on the infinite sky of heaven.

 

August 07 2020

This drop of water hanging in the vast blue sky, from what burning star have you emerged? How many hearts have you beat? How many times have you fallen from the broken hearted, or from the diamond eyes of joy? On this day, I see you there, a little piece of me.

 

August 06 2020

Meandering along the water takes on many forms and colors. She becomes rivers, and streams, she passes through, light and dark just the same. But all along she is on her way to the great ocean. Returning, and returning without end.

 

August 04 2020

My bed felt like a cloud, I could lay there forever. I felt neither suffering nor happiness. Out of this comfortable neutral feeling of non suffering, a calm joy filled my entire being. We often step over neutral feelings, but they are non suffering & can bring great joy.

 

August 04 2020

The embers of your heart can stand the test of time, storms may come, and blow out the flame from time to time. But deep within, the embers stir, they can be reignited with just a touch of fire.

 

August 02 2020

Let joy rise in the soul, while the song of the universe sounds without ceasing.

 

August 2, 2020

Today will be around the 14,796th time I have woken up to another day. This is the 41st time I have gotten to experience the season summer. I feel a gratitude beyond all words to have had this chance at life. Every day we have is precious.

 

August 2, 2020

The whole universe is set in motion, the great churn of the cosmos is at play. Every blade of grass sings her song. And, when you are quiet you can feel that very song, flow from your heart.

 

July 31 2020

Sometimes we can feel like a time of darkness will never end, but it often happens that the light finds it’s way. It is the law of life, things don’t stay dark forever. Always keep going, as long as you have another day, you have one more chance to step towards the light.

 

July 31 2020

A magical energy fills the woods, the skies are alight as a storm is born, ions fill the air. As first light breaks, rain begins to fall. The normal sense of time falls away, a sense of the ancient stream arises.

 

July 30 2020

Let your heart take flight into the silence of cosmic movement.

 

July 28 2020

Written for a friend on her nature photograph

In these places my heart dwells. From time to time you can find me there, listening to the sound of water flow, or immersing my soul in heavens reflections. In these places I am like the songbird, and my heart sets free on the notes of paradise.

 

July 28 2020

The day stretches her wings

Alas nightfall is only a breath away

The inquisitive begin to awaken

 

July 28 2020

My love went so far reaching the heavens, and playing among the stars.

 

July 27 2020

The water was as still as glass, from a time long ago, each grain of cosmic dust was shining on the shores of time.

 

July 27 2020

May all beings in the three times and ten directions have contented hearts, and bask in the comfort of equanimity.

 

July 27 2020

My bare feet running on the summer grass, the air smells sweet like flowers. The sky is as blue as can be, with soft clouds passing by. I notice the sharp colors & shadows, as I play happily. I am summer. The sound of laughter sounds out, joy fills the air. The heart of a child.

 

July 26 2020

Take a lake for example it is made of water, that water reflects all of it’s surroundings. Imagine if the lake mistook itself for the reflections instead of water? Much like our minds, thoughts come and go, but from where do they arise? They are reflections.

 

July 26 2020

Many of us spend our days running from our lives. It is often the case that many years later you look back on those days with fondness and longing. Perhaps this is because while we are living our days we often focus our attention on the things that bother us, but later in life we can see a more complete picture and see all of the good things that transcend the trivial bickers of every day life.

 

July 25 2020

The warmth of a summer day rises to the sky dissipating into the blue. The cool breezes quench the night. A chorus of cricket song sounds out. I look to the glittering stars with a smile in my heart. The fire cracks sending up sparks, as the smoke wafts softly to the sky.

 

July 25 2020

The waters harbor a world unto their own, but when the surface is still and you look into the water you can see the entire sky there. Two realities occupying the same time and space.

 

July 25 2020

Truth is for everyone. You do not need to don robes, or make a pilgrimage, or kneel in a temple. The truth is here and now, you yourself are truth. It does not matter if you are a sinner or a saint, no one can take the truth away from you.

 

July 23 2020

Sometimes I am a wandering spirit who can only be found in the sun beams that touch the tops of trees, or walking among the cool breeze of the pines, don’t worry I’ll be back.

 

July 23 2020

All of us have things from our past that seem to linger, and we would rather they not. All we can do is just keep taking this one step, and live our best lives. Keep looking to the beauty of the world no matter how much darkness we see, just keep walking towards the light.

 

July 22 2020

If we don’t face our fears & take that chance, we will never know how things could have been. Although there is uncertainty, we weigh the possibilities, and take that step.

 

July 20 2020

I’m a little late finally got out to look at the comet last night, it is amazing. Drove a little ways since I live surrounded by so many trees, needed a clearing to see lower on the horizon. Looking forward to going again tonight.

 

July 18 2020

Although nothing stays the same, nothing can be removed. All things are interwoven & made of all else. The past is woven into the present, the present into the future, in a new form. Although the form has changed, you cannot remove the past, if you did the universe would vanish.

 

July 16 2020

As I walked the spires to the door of heaven. I was greeted by the mother, and the call of the songbird.

 

July 16 2020

My darling, when will you come back to me? For so long you have wandered the glittering bands of heavens light.

 

July 16 2020

Waking this morning after a long slumber I hear the sound of aeons shining from the light of the first morning star.

 

July 15 2020

When the light of the western sky falls upon the shores of time. Do not cry for me when the light fades. My dear, the sun will rise again. Come dawn turn your eyes to the east and watch the sky be filled with light once again.

 

July 15 2020

There is no such a thing as “just another day”. The whole cosmos has come together to bring about this day. The churn of time is in motion, the wheel of the universe moves, and this moment appears.

 

July 15 2020

Sometimes even when we are positive and have a wonderful outlook on life things can happen to us that get us down for a day or two, the important thing is to always get back up, and not get stuck. Always look to the good and beautiful, it is always there.

 

July 12 2020

A thousand years into the abyss

I fall gently from this tree

aeons

 

July 11 2020

How the stars have arranged themselves. The light shining softy from every petal, and every leaf. The breath of life does not cease. How far into eternity shall we go?

 

July 10 2020

Ode to Tesla: I dreamt the world electrified & so it was. The world couldn’t move forward because of the greed of a few. I wept watching the world go by, my inventions kept in a box. Humanity wasn’t ready yet. There I spent my last days the only one who knew what could have been.

 

July  10 2020

Bits of the sea gleam in her eyes, glimmers of sunlight shine from her heart, as she walks on the sands of time

 

July 10 2020

Happy Birthday Nikola Tesla!

 

July 10 2020

I’m starting to see the world like a painter, in lights and shadows and shades of color. Everywhere I look the whole world is a masterpiece.

 

July 09 2020

May your days be filled with soft morning sun, and the sweet grasses of summer. May your heart be filled with boundless gratitude and peaceful equanimity. And this I hope for every living being without number.

 

July 09 2020

Been having a lot of encounters with friendly birds on my walks. Today I had a little sparrow following me from tree to tree as I walked, he was talking to me (in chirps of course) and landing on branches that were close. I could get used to this.

 

July 07 2020

The clouds sure are beautiful.

 

July 06 2020

Sometimes it’s best to not click on news stories even if they temp you , it can lead to instant sorrow. There is so much going on that is beyond our control. But at least we can somewhat control what bombards our minds, it makes a difference.

 

July 6 2020

Bathed in the moonlight Her footsteps walk gently on the forest floor The sweet summer breezes blowing through the pines

 

July 5 2020

I slept during firework hours, I would wake up from time to time from the loud explosions. Once when I woke I thought about our turbulent times, and how people were celebrating something and enjoying the festivities, I fell back asleep with warmth in my heart.

 

July 4 2020

True freedom is seeing the world as it is, it’s being free from the ideas that shackle us. May today be a true independence day where you breathe the moments and drink the time, free of notions that bind and cause suffering. Happy independence day.

 

June 30 2020

Reaching the threshold into the abyss, I took that final step through the gate. There I became all the stars in the heavens & every beating heart. I became the sound of laughter & every falling tear. As the tears flowed, I knew clearly they weren’t mine alone.

 

June 29 2020

My darling, in this grain of dust I have entered. Here I have found the sea of light, oh how it shines so bright in the gleam of your eyes.

 

June 28 2020

The sound of rain on my window.

 

June 27 2020

I didn’t know it then… And, in those days the time passed by as though a dream. I breathed in the time, and the fleeting wind. I look at my withered hands and count the sands of time.

 

June 21 2020

This world is whatever we choose it to be. We dream it into existence. What world will we dream of today? I can turn on the news and see one reality of chaos, or step into nature and see peace. Which reality is real? You can choose your reality. It’s in your hands.

 

June 19 2020

The sleeping dragon yawns at first light

Heaven and earth reverberate, lightning cracks

It’s not what you think

That’s it, that’s all

The sound of laughter fills the air

 

June 18 2020

The river of time moves, having no beginning or end. It is ungraspable and cannot be found. All that ever was, is what this moment is now, all that will ever be, emanates from what is now. Past, present, and future, a lovely idea.

 

June 18 2020

It’s just another night basking in the glow of ancient starlight. Come morning the radiance of the sun will light the way, but for now I swim in a sea of diamonds.

 

June 18 2020

Let there be magic

 

Date unknown

Summers last kiss

 

June 16 2020

She dreams in the deep

From the dark places she does not hide

She greets them with a smile

All covered in stardust

Her footprints glow on the shores of time

 

June 15 2020

In the deep green

she dreams

The stormy night

of minds phantasms

Until at last From her slumber

She should awaken

 

June 13 2020

The sweet grasses of a summer breeze glow with delight. These bits of radiance come and go, but if you look you will find them.

 

June 13 2020

Sometimes if you are very quiet in nature it is almost as though you can see every leaf and blade of grass. When you let go, you can take in the totality.

 

June 13 2020

Whatever you do

do it with all of your heart

This moment wont come twice

 

Date unknown

Finding me

Somewhere in the depths of my being
I know I will find me there
I have been looking for so long
The all encompassing silence deafens my ears
The mind moves without end
I looked for the door to where I could find me

Every time I found me
I lost me again

I was untraceable

Like a crack in the universe
My heart began to open

I looked up towards the blazing sun
I touched my hand on the solid earth

The beating of my heart
Became the sound of a million suns

The me that I was looking for disappeared

 

June 10 2020

“The universe plays the heart of the songbird”.

June 09 2020

Fire of the heart
Born of the universe
She breathes the cosmos
and sips the time
The notes of her emotion
resound throughout the heavens
Radiant starlight
Reflecting her heart
She rests at ease in her starry embrace
Sleeping in the fire of cosmic breath

 

June 7 2020

As the sun gives way to a sky full of stars, a lone bird song fills the air. She says, “Just this, just now, in this moment my heart brimming with resplendent joy, until tomorrow goodnight”.

 

June 7 2020

Busily running around the world she goes with eyes closed. She passes by the beautiful places, seeing them not. If one day she should rest a while, a world of beauty would unfold.

 

June 7 2020

Sometimes you might be the only one in the world who will ever see that one moment of beauty.

 

June 6 2020

This threshold you labored to cross never existed
Oh how you labored to reach the gate that never was
This diamond light shining from your eyes making it clear as day
The sound of laughter fills the air

 

6-05-2020

This steam rises slowly from my cup
Water born from the cosmos, oceans and rivers
I am here, just breathing in the timelessness
I take a sip of eternity

06-05-2020

This moment will surely change, this I know.

The clouds become flowers, fields of wheat, and beating hearts.

how wonderous impermanence is.

Without change things would not be as they are.

 

June 02 2020

Looking up at a dark night sky you can see a river of stars that make up the band of the Milky Way Galaxy. How fitting it is to see this river of flowers born from the dust of ancient starlight.

 

June 02 2020

These grains of you and me shining in the sunlight of timelessness. The waves of cosmic movement lapping the shores of eternity.

May 31 2020

Children at play on this mote of dust.

Star beams wander waiting to be heard.

Thunderous waves crash through the heart of the universe.

Cosmic melodies playing their notes on the strings of time.

The deafening instrument of silence resounding throughout heaven and earth.

Night after night she sets the sky on fire. She speaks without words, but few listen. For how long has she been speaking? Since before time.

 

May 30 2020

This morning the skies are alive with the sounds of thunder and the occasional crack of lighting. What surprised me the most was the birds are still singing and squirrels still chattering playfully. Even with these dark skies, there is still a joyful celebration of life.

 

May 30 2020

I am you and you are me
We are born from the dust of stars
We were forged in the heart of the earth
And the farthest reaches of space
I am not your enemy, nor you mine

Where can this moment be found? Look closely try to find it. The instant you find this moment it will have already slipped from your grasp

Just like time, matter is in constant flux from being in a state of creation, or decay. Matter is never static, and it can never be the same from one moment to the next.

In this law of nature where can a “something” be found?

Matter just like time when looked at closely cannot be found. However looking even more closely you will find that one grain of dust contains within it the whole of existence. It’s not that matter does not exist, it’s only what we think about it that removes it from reality.

Our ideas tint the world like sunglasses. Ideas can be likened to clouds in the sky. They are in constant motion & transformation, the sky is unaffected by those clouds. They pass unhindered. If we can see the world like the sky sees the clouds it will become diamond bright.

To see the world as it is, rather than how we “think” it is, is the real treasure.

 

May 28 2020

This moment is a miracle. There is beauty all around us. You only have to look at your own hand to see it. Feel the precious beat of your own heart, it is miraculous. There is pain in the world but there is so much more that that. Look for the light, and you will find it.

May 28 2020

If we just had the eyes to see, we would see that everything is made from the dust of stars. How magnificent this world shines. There are no ordinary moments.

 

May 27 2020

Visiting a place for the first time, you see it exactly as it is with nothing added, It’s fresh. After a time, your ideas, thoughts and emotions are added to what you see around you, and then you no longer see it exactly as it is. After that it is part mental image.

 

May 26 2020

Home is where the heart is. We live in a sea of stars. Magnificent!

 

May 25 2020

Time moves

Melodies of moments long past linger
Sweet and fragrant like spring

Winds of change stirring the phantasms of yesterday
Like wind moving leaves in the fall

Written in the lines, and the glimmer of my eyes
Read by the smile in my heart

 

May 25 2020

Shine beautifully just as you are.

 

May 25 2020

We live in the vastness of space, every night if the skies are clear we have the chance to see it with our own eyes. Filling our hearts with awe & wonder as we look out at the grand mystery. Stars, Planets, & galaxies shining like diamonds, how wonderous!

 

May 24 2020

Rocks…..
They seem so ordinary we step on them kick them and often pay them no mind. But rocks are spectacular. If you pick up a pebble it could be millions of years old smelted in the heart of the earth made from the dust of stars. Nothing on this earth is ordinary.

 

May 23 2020

Let your heart be light. Let it flow with the movement of the wind.

 

May 23 2020

These dreams are ever changing
I try to hold them but they become something else
Not quite ever slipping away
But always becoming something new
That something new is ever changing
When will I let go and just be with what is

 

May 22 2020

No matter what the world brings you, whether it be darkness or light, just keep shining. Let your actions be moved by your heart.

 

April 24 2020

Wandering hearts move with the wind, and celebrate the sky embracing eternal change.

 

April 23 2020

Today is a precious gift, may all of us live it to the fullest. Hold your loved ones close, never leave anything unsaid. Show kindness when you can. Love with all of your heart, and appreciate every breath. Life is beautiful.

 

April 23 2020

The haunting beauty of this world turning in the vastness of space, how seldom we remember where we are. My feet firmly planted on this earth, my heart as vast as the sky. With the beat of this cosmic heart, I smile. How wonderous it is to be alive.

 

April 21 2020

The clouds pass through the vast sky changing from one form to the next. They do not hold onto their forms, they express freely and joyfully. Their beauty shining for all to see.

 

April 19 2020

The stars just keep shining, in their new forms…..

 

April 19 2020

Like a firework, we are born into this world we are beautiful, and we shine bright. Impermanence gives everything that lives and is breakable its preciousness. Life is fragile and fleeting. What a gift it is to burst forth into this life and experience all of its colors.

 

April 18 2020

Our hearts are in pain, we’re all struggling. But there’s still so much beauty in the world, it’s shining all around us. Sometimes we have to take a moment to touch the beautiful and the vast. Sometimes we have to just let go & breathe, it heals the soul.

 

April 17 2020

Will anyone be able to read the depths of my heart
Will you feel the stars in cosmic array
Will you feel the multitudes of beings in expression
Hopes and dreams pouring through like a thunderous wave
Will you see the lamp of life in this grain of sand

 

April 17 2020

These days, they are like the leaves of fall
So beautiful, so temporary
For this short time shining bright
We bask in the splendor of each passing moment
How wonderous it is to be alive
The shoots of spring become the leaves of fall
But for today, I am shining

 

April 17 2020

Dawning the flight of a thousand birds
My heart sets free on the melodies of cosmic movement
Bursting through the heavens in starlight splendor
I take this breath

 

 

Date unknown

A still heart and mind reflects the world exactly as it is
Our thoughts are like ripples on the water that distort the image it reflects
When the image is distorted you cant see the reflection in it’s true form
But once the water is still it reflects beautifully

 

Date unknown

Jewel scattered dreams
Line the heavens
Cast your line

Let these star beams walk
Let them play
Among the scattered suns of heaven

Melodies of time
Crashing like waves

Moonbeams flow in silence
These dreams
Time without beginning

I cast my line

 

Date unknown

She falls gently to the earth
Dancing beautifully

Bursting with the colors of Autumn
She does not cry

Gently she rests on the soils of rebirth
At the roots of the mother

The flux of time
The heart of the mother beats

Cradled in the arms of infinite transformation
She surrenders freely

 

Date unknown

From the darkness and damp
She reaches for the light

Reaching her arms out in all directions
In the underworld

One day
She breaks the soil

Gently she dances
In the soft light of the sun

These are the last days
Of winters dark

One by one
The seeds of spring awaken

To this joyous day
They break the soil

These are the first days
Of springs light

 

April 17 2020

There is an underlying clarity to the moment
The ground of being is immutable
The light is inextinguishable
It’s a matter of mind.

 

April 16 2020

Truth is to be found nowhere but right here. Right in the midst of action, right in the midst of sorrow and joy. It just is as it is. This moment is dynamic, it contains within it the whole. There’s nothing that needs to be done, just this moment.

 

April 16 2020

Cosmic elements arranging joyfully.

 

April 15 2020

Turning in the vastness of space.
One dot among many in a sea of stars.
I gaze in awe and wonder.
My star dust eyes reflecting ancient light.
Among these glittering stars of heaven,
who is seeing who?

 

April 15 2020

The beat of her heart in time with her wings. A little closer to heaven, she flies free. Drafting the currents with ease she finds no hindrance. She reads the voice of the wind, it is the sound of her own heart. A language understood without sound.

 

April 13 2020

Went out into the woods to breathe the cool night air. The stars are shining so bright tonight. The smell of spring is in the air.

 

April 13 2020

Sometimes we just have to let go and surrender, to what we can’t control.

 

April 10 2020

There was this feeling today that I couldn’t quite place. It was the spring feeling in the air & more, it felt like a time from long ago as a child. I realized what it was. When I was little we were poor & times were simpler & more down to earth. That’s what this feeling is.

In our modern way of life we have become spoiled, and wasteful. Back when I was a child and poor we lived out of our garden, and fished. We were so happy. Times were so much simpler and so much more meaningful. I think we have lost some of that in our busy lives.

 

April 10 2020

Sitting outside getting my vitamin D, closing my eyes, I could hear the wind coming from far away traveling through the trees. I could feel the soft sun on my skin and feel the gentle wind blow through my hair. The sounds of bird song filled the air, & the smell of wood smoke.

 

April 7 2020

pre-corona- when I dropped food on the counter I tossed it. Now I don’t clean my counters w toxins just soap & water. If I drop something on the counter, I still use it. Every drop of food is precious. I think of all the times I wasted, while others in the world were hungry.

 

April 7 2020

Though we walk in the darkest of nights
Crystal hearts shine like the sun
Compassion and love overcome fear
Our starry eyes filled with tears for the love of man
Cosmic hearts surrender joining hands
Let us walk as one in the light of love
We will get through this friends

 

April 6 2020

May hope be ever present in the hearts of the weary. This too shall pass.

 

April 5 2020

Here’s to looking up, let’s keep our hope alive & keep a dream in our hearts. Let’s look to see how we are part of something vast. Let’s allow our breath to be taken away one more time as we look up at the vast night sky.

 

April 5 2020

Shadows can only exist when light is present.

 

April 4 2020

Sometimes shafts of light reach even in the darkest places.
Sometimes you have to go looking for them.

 

April 3 2020

Even during times of suffering & unimaginable pain, beauty does not cease to shine. Whether from the heart of man or in nature. Even while in the midst of pain keep one foot grounded on this beautiful Earth. Let the love in your heart continue to burn ever stronger.

 

April 2 2020

Out of the darkness
A light is shining

The heart of man
Cannot be dimmed

Though the heavens cry
The stars shine still

Fear turns to love
Sorrow to hope

We walk as many
You are not alone

The stars do not cease
In the beat of your weary heart

 

April 2 2020

We will overcome this
Though the storms rage
And the dark night is long
Every storm comes to an end
Every dark night ends
With the promise of a new day
Let us lend our hearts to the world
The light is just on the horizon
Just a little bit longer friends
Let us join hearts as one

 

March 31 2020

Let us see through
These starlight eyes

Let this cosmic
Heart beat

Let these oceans rain
Let these sun beams fall

Let us rest in this ancient
Moonlight embrace

 

March 31 2020

Out of the darkens
A light is shining

The heart of man
Cannot be dimmed

Though the heavens cry
The stars shine still

Fear turns to love
Sorrow to hope

We walk as many
You are not alone

The stars do not cease
In the beat of your weary heart

 

March 29 2020

A walk in the cool rain should clear things up.

 

March 22 2020

Love is the most powerful force in the universe. Never be afraid to love with all your heart. Love by the way you walk, love by the way you breathe, love by the way you see. The world so very much needs love.

 

March 22 2020

Never be afraid to do what feels right in your heart even if it makes you look bad. We don’t always get a second chance, so do what your heart calls you to do.

 

March 01 2020

March 26 2020
Cries are heard
From across the land
Friends are hurt
The night is long
No respite in sight
Who will carry the wounded
Who will sooth them
The heavens embrace
Is no consolation
Starlit hearts
Cry out
Into this long night

 

March 02 2020

Starless night
I can’t find the words

The bright moon
Is lost in the clouds

Who will wipe the tears
Of the weary

On this long night

 

January 18 2020

Made of the mother
Radiant stars Oceans of time
Sun & air coursing through our veins
I smile the smile of the mother
She is who I am
Plowed fields of yesterday knitted together as me
Made of the mother
My feet touch the earth
My heart touches the sky

 

Date unknown

Fall

A cold chill in the air
Mother has bundled me all up
Holding Mom’s hand we walk
I stop often picking up a leaf
I kick them and play as I walk
Splendid is the season
Fall brings so many memories
The smells
The vivid colors
The world is bathed in a glow
The heart soars

 

Date unknown

Time

Time where can I find it? Where can I hold it? Time….
There it is, let’s grasp it, darn it’s already gone.
Time won’t you hold still?
I’m trying to see you.
Time is change, said time.
You cant hold me, because I never stay the same.
Everything is in motion and transformation
This is time.
If you want to see me, be still.
