Curate More Love

Wednesday, August 21st, 2019

My morning meditation gave rise to notion of curating more love. More peace. More joy. More laughter.

Following my meditation, I wrote in my journal, “My heart is curated and narrated by the love that lives in me.” I began to just sit with that — in that. I questioned where in my life am I curating and narrating more love. How am curating and narrating the love that lives in me? How am I expressing the love that lives in me?

Curating and narrating love is a daily practice; one I am not always good at sharing. Each moment and each breath gives me a chance to curate more love.

What you you curating more of in your life right now? How are you narrating yourself to others and to yourself?

A Thought Away From Peace

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2019

As we become more aware of our thoughts, we can start to observe and listen deeply to the messages we give ourselves.

Take a moment and ask yourself:

Is this thought giving me joy or taking away my joy?

Spend 10 minutes each day observing your thoughts.

Watch where you mind goes and allow your breath to take you back to peace.

The calmer our mind, the more we can give and receive.

Give yourself 10 minutes each day to observe your thoughts.

Where will your thoughts take you today?

Breathe your way to peace.

Support Within

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2019

What’s the posture that will best support you right now? We can slow down. Relax.

What if you tuned into you? Connect to the essence of you. The invitation is to rest. Notice all the places in your life that support you.

Where can you relax? Listen to the rhythm of your breathing. Let your heartbeat be your guide. Just for today. Just for this moment.

What support do you need right now? Give yourself permission to ask for support. Notice what your heart needs. Notice what you need to be more fully alive.

What brings you back to yourself? Notice what is calling your attention. Notice what you are giving energy to and paying attention to.

Let go – for now. Surrender to yourself. Support yourself. Notice how you are supported from the inside. You are supported within.

Flickering Light

Thursday, December 6th, 2018

Our light goes in and out.
We find ourselves again and again.
And we lose ourselves again and again.
Sometimes we need the darkness to find our light.

Our light dims and love helps us find it.
Our light shines bright lightly and love shows us how to share it.
Our light glows and other people notice it.

We sometimes see the light in others before we see our own light.
We shine and celebrate the light in others.

Oh, and their light flickers too.

As our days grow shorter, may we find our inner sun that is always shining light.

May we remember that light emerges from the darkness.
And that the most holy darkness is the deepest darkness.

Let our flickering light and holy darkness be our teachers.

Peaceful Mind, Happy Heart

Tuesday, August 14th, 2018

If our thoughts are peaceful, our meditation is also usually peaceful. If we have spiral or negative thoughts, then we describe our mind as unsettled. We might be unable to “stop” our thoughts.

The goal of meditation is not to stop our thoughts. It’s to notice our thoughts. It’s a place where we can experience a subtle change in our thoughts. Our meditation is as much when we are in the world as it is when we are on the cushion.

If your mind is a little peaceful then it’s possible to experience a little more peace and expand it. As my meditation teacher says, “If we can feel a little peaceful, we can feel a lot peaceful.”

Being Here—Being Home

Tuesday, August 7th, 2018

There was a time I was between here and there. Now I find myself between here and here.

I came across the above line in one of my journals and was reminded just how easy it is to move away from the present moment. I have released the notion of staying busy. I found the busier I was, the more exhausted I became. By making space for some quiet, I am able to find time for walking, watching sunsets, meditating, writing, and sitting. It’s amazing how busy we can convince ourselves to be!

As Thich Nhat Hanh says in his writing, I Have Arrived, I Am Home:

“I have arrived” is our practice. When we breathe in, we take refuge in our in-breath, and we say, “I have arrived.” When we take a step, we take refuge in our step, and we say, “I am home.” This is not a statement to yourself or another person. “I have arrived, I am home” means I have stopped running; I have arrived in the present moment contains life. When I breathe in and take refuge in my in-breath, I touch life deeply. When I take a step and I take refuge entirely in my step, I also touch life deeply, and by doing so I stop running.

          Stop running is a very important practice. We have all been running all of our lives. We believe that peace, happiness, and success are present in some other place and time. We don’t know that everything—peace, happiness, and stability—should be looked for in the here and the now. This is the address of life—the intersection of here and now.

I have stopped running and I have arrived. For me, being here is being home.

Welcome home.

What Is Your Suggested Speed Limit?

Wednesday, July 25th, 2018

We decide life’s pace.

We decide whether we must get someplace at 50 miles per hour or 20 miles per hour.

We decide how fast or how slow we go.

We decide the pace of our life and the pace of our breath.

What is your pace?

Can we slow down long enough to feel life, to feel our heart, and to feel our breath?

What is your suggested speed limit?

Mantra: I allow the pace of my heart to show me
the way.

Meditation on Compassion

Tuesday, June 26th, 2018

Fill yourself up with compassion with each breath. 
What do you look like when you are living with compassion?
Show yourself some compassion right now.
Allow yourself to breathe compassion into your whole body.
Notice your body and breathe even more compassion.
Let compassion move your hands to your heart.
How are you transmitting compassion to yourself?
What is your message of compassion today?
Listen to compassion.
Take a deeper breath in and out.
Breathe compassion. Again. And again.
When you see the world with compassion, what’s possible?
And take a nice big breath.
Be compassionate to youself, always.
Beam compassion with every interaction.
And so it is.

As Pema Chödrön writes, “Just as nurturing our ability to love is a way of awakening bodhichitta, so also is nurturing our ability to feel compassion. Compassion, however, is more emotionally challenging than loving-kindness because it involves the willingness to feel pain. It definitely requires the training of a warrior.

When we practice generating compassion, we can expect to experience our fear of pain. Compassion practice is daring. It involves learning to relax and allow ourselves to move gently toward what scares us. The trick to doing this is to stay with emotional distress without tightening into aversion, to let fear soften us rather than harden into resistance.”

Stay with your breath. Stay with yourself. Stay with compassion.
