When you are Wonder-Filled
Everything matters.

The ordinary is transformed into the extraordinary
and your own first sight
you to bliss.

A tree, a cup, a leaf, a magnolia petal.

Sit under the Oak.
Be delighted by its presence.
Drink from the cup.
Let your body fill with Warm Happiness.
Be with the leaf.
And if you listen deeply enough,
she will sing to you.

When you smile when you sit,
the smile will enliven
your entire body.

If you were blind,
having eyes to see with
would be miraculous.

If you were deaf,
hearing the song of the chickadee
would bring you to think
you were in heaven.


Don’t be ridiculous.

While times are hard,
You can yet sing.
You have a voice.

You have two lungs
with which you can breathe.

You have a heart
through which you can love.

You have two legs
upon which
you can dance.

You are a Creator, an Author, an Artist
to the last.

You are ALIVE!

What can I be grateful for,
now and now and now?

Presence comes first. Astonishment rushes in a brief moment after. Wonder follows, then these words of love to you. Bothered, ensnared, engulfed by all my worries, I have been asleep. Your sudden appearance and my willingness to be surprised meet and hold hands.…

Creating Spaciousness

Breathe. Let the light that is all around you enter through your crown chakra. Let it penetrate your Being. Feel The warmth of the fire within you. Know that you are loved. Align all the energies. Let them converge as one in the center of your Being. Breathe. Create space in time. All will come to pass in its own time. Don’t try to rush things. Breathe. Create room in time. Those creative possibilities are beautiful, all in their own time. Give yourself the gift of room in time. Let this knowing in your body and your heart lead the…
