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?

Let go and love the way the world turns. Be with it. Allow it. Notice it. Even, embrace it. When you rail against it, you become part of the same energy that stopped the flow at the beginning. Be the holder of it. Know that it, too, has a destination to, finally, merge as one with all. Listen deeply to your heart inside and those things you know are anciently true. Trust in your essential wisdom to lead the way. The world is in flux. You will find your way. “All things must pass.” Let them go. May I be…

Dancing in the water, the bright orange sun winks at me through the branches of the pine. The ceiling falling is nothing, being present to such beauty.
