2014-9-13SAT – because until and unless you willingly take the first step [step one] no step has been taken.. no movement, no shift, nothing real has occurred… despite you being convinced to the contrary… the thing about Truth is, even if you do not believe it, it is still true!
endless breath... yours to have as you need it... simply LET GO of the breath you now have, and in letting go, you allow, and in allowing you receive more..~ photo by C
2014-9-12FRI~ the main practice is learning to allow, learning it is safe to let go… the ‘holding’ you are engaged in is an imposition on yourself… and so, by definition, the holding deprives you of having…. don’t believe it? OK, try holding your breath…. have any more of it by holding it??

2014-9-11THR – What we impose on the natural order of things, like holding, is what skews our experience of the natural way of being.
peace is not a place, not a destination, but available to yu right where you are - photo sunrise by Jro
2014-9-8TUE.MP3 - Why limit your having peace to a place, or an event, a situation, or some set of conditions needing to happen first? Why not stop being ‘besides your Self,’ and simply start in peace- with peace…having peace – and then, then proceed, now proceed with peace, as peace.

2014-8-17SUN ~ or we can stretch ourselves just a little bit – an inner shift – to ‘stand’ in a place where we will, by definition, naturally see the same things we’ve been looking at, but rather now, from just beyond our most habituated and most familiar way of seeing… where we can no longer be so certain of everything we are now so certain of… what then? What happens when what you now are so convinced is a ‘problem’ suddenly appears as the solution, the answer, right before your eyes…what then?

2014-8-15FRI ~ how far you are operating outside of your ‘sweet spot’ [power spot, balance point, place of peace, abundance, wellbeing, capital "I" place].. and the more you have committed to strategies with the aim to manage, curtail, minimize, fix, or otherwise change the natural consequences you will experience, as a consequence of your having ventured away from your source, the more you are committed to these strategies, the more you insure your continued experience of feeling yourself apart from, and away from and outside of your sweet spot…. The good news is, you can not truly get away from nor loose your sweet spot, because it is intrinsic to your very being, by Divine design… so, simply give your allegiance to what is in the heart of you.
Like a flower coming into a full bloom, naturally, in its own perfect timing... you too will blossom, if you will stop resisting it ... Your blossoming is not predicated on time, as it is unconditionally guaranteed ~ it's already You, by design - photo by EDEN
2014-8-14THU ~ simply be curious to feel what happens spontaneously as you shift your attention to the heart of you… to that space of abiding silence, stillness, and peace with in…
Is the sun in the trees? So it appears... yet it is everywhere, it meets you wheresoever you are. ~ photo by Vittoria
2014-8-12TUE ~ you happen upon a deep abiding stillness, a silence… you are not thinking in this place, just experiencing peace, and from here, you may behold the more dynamic movement around you, and behold the movement even as you experience the movement…

2014-8-10SUN~ and so, is by definition, new… now – in the moment. Whatsoever is not of the moment (present time) – by definition – can not stay in the moment, unless you make it matter, and bind yourself to it (attachment) … thereby giving it weight and so ushering it into your experience. And, once you usher it into your experience, it will stay, until, and unless, you willingly relinquish it. So, the way of balance, the way of peace, the way of joy [the natural way of being], happens spontaneously, seamlessly, and effortlessly, just as soon as you stop making something matter more then anything else… after all, if something is in fact present, in the moment, it must and can only be divine… unique.. indeed, but never the less, divine… our ‘job’ is to dare to see the Truth of this, to behold it, rather then try to hold it… and this speaks of a new way of seeing, a new way of being… the good news is, it happens to be the most natural, organic way, and will, if you but allow it to, unfold perfectly, seamlessly, effortlessly, all without your doing a thing to try and make it happen!
What delineates the boundry of what is now most familiar to you ?? Now, what is just beyond that boundary?? ~ photo by Vittoria
2014-8-9SAT ~ be open – maybe unexpectedly – to feel even more comfortable; and here’s the thing, the even more comfortable way of being, by definition, will be found outside the bounds of now what is most familiar to you. So the real stretch, is to willingly stretch beyond the bounds of what is now most familiar to you…
