Seeing Through Your Lens

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

As I walked through the NY Botanical Garden I overheard, “Can I see what you are seeing through your lens?” The question was from a woman speaking to her husband as he was taking pictures with his zoom lens. It stopped me in my tracks.

What happens when we look at the world through the lens of another person? Would we show more empathy, kindness, forgiveness, generosity, and love for one another?

What are we seeing and being that influences our actions in our daily lives? Everything starts with stillness. We thrive and become alive when we can sit, listen, be, and then act from that place and space – our heart. It’s more than taking actions; it is accepting ourselves for who we are deep inside.

Can we look through the lens of each other with more mindfulness?

Can I/we see what you are seeing through your lens?

Jump on the Peace Train

Monday, March 18th, 2013

Where are your thoughts taking you? Is the place one of serenity, peace, joy, gratitude, compassion, and generosity? If not, is it time to change your train of thoughts?

If a thought is taking you down that never ending spiral staircase or the inner rabbit hole, take a moment to notice your breath. Tell yourself, “I am breathing in. I am breathing out.” Take a few breaths. Breathe slower breaths – intentionally breathing peace in and out.

Is it time to take the peace train?

Slow down. Listen. Change trains if need be.

Next stop – Peace.

Walk Your Path of Heart

Friday, March 8th, 2013

Are you taking a path of heart?

Are you listening to your wild dreams?

Are you open to blazing a new trail?

Are you willing to go onto a path of uncertainty?

Are you open to deep diving into the unknown?

Are you available to what’s next?

If it isn’t a path of heart, are you willing to courageously walk away?

Row, Row, Row Your Boat

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

The Dude and the Zen Master

There is an incredible new book out, The Dude and the Zen Master, written by what many might think is an unlikely duo – an actor and a Zen Buddhist. Yet, this book by Jeff Bridges and Bernie Glassman takes a look at life through the lens of The Big Lebowski. The book is part mystical, part Zen, part humor, part journey, part compassion in action. What I loved about the book is that throughout their entire conversation (on many topics), there was a deep sense of the importance of showing up, being present, and staying true to oneself.

One of their dialogs includes Glassman sharing with Bridges his insight about how to have a mindset without having expectations. He says it can be summed up with these words:

Row, row, row your boat
gently down the stream
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
Life is but a dream.

It is all about going with the flow, staying in the present, and doing it merrily. The song doesn’t say go down the stream crankily. It reminds us to row our boats, change our oars when we need to, and to be gentle with ourselves. As Glassman says, “There are different streams. Sometimes you come to a fall and sometimes you come to white water. Your rowing has to adapt to the situation. So gently is really important. Don’t power yourself or blast through; rock with the way things are.”

The book gives you the sense you are sitting in the room listening in on a profound conversation and you get to bear witness. You will feel grateful for being able to listen to the conversation and Bridges and Glassman’s insights from acting to Zen Buddhism to sacred activism.

Row, row, row your boat is a way of looking at life in the present, being gentle, and changing shores. As Glassman say, “Take care of yourself right now. Befriend what’s happening, not just who you’re supposed to be or what the world should look like. This is where you are now, so how do you care for yourself this minute?”

Treat yourself to this powerful exchange between two incredible human beings.

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013

Daring Deeply!

My purpose is to dig deeper inside my heart so that I can take peaceful actions and dare greatly into vulnerability.

I intend to open to my fullest, heart-centered, creative, vulnerable beingness. I am daring deeply!

Let There Be Peace on Earth

Monday, December 24th, 2012

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be.

Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now.
With every step I take…

Yes, let there be peace on earth.

Let there be peace within me.

Let me be the peace.

May the season of hope, miracles, and light allow each of us to be the peace we seek.
