Just for Now, without asking how, let yourself sink into stillness.

Just for now, lay down the weight you so patiently bear upon your

shoulders. Feel the earth receive you, and the infinite expanse of the sky grow even

wider as your awareness reaches up to meet it. Just for now, allow a wave of breath to

enliven your experience. Breathe out whatever blocks you from the truth. Just for now,

be boundless, free, with awakened energy tingling in your hands and feet. Drink in the

possibility of being who and what you really are – so fully alive that the world looks

different, newly born and vibrant, just for now. ~ Danna Faulds

The Time In Between

The time in between is the best time. It is a time to take in every moment, every gesture, every sight, sound, smell, and taste. It’s holiday time, it’s always. The time is now. Savor it. Pause and draw your awareness to the moment. Fully in it. Breathe in the life force. Live life now. Make your “dash” count.

The Power of Simplicity

Simplicity is an art form. It is under appreciated. How often do we find ourselves impressed with speech, works of architecture, works of art, or even concepts that are so complicated – in their essence – that we keep looking at them and thinking about them? While there is a place for this, try looking at something simple. Something that allows you to view it with ease and clarity. There is beauty in this. The mind can take it in and process it without over thinking. Opinions, emotions, and perceptions can take form with more immediacy. Simplicity is accessible. Simplicity transcends differences in age, gender, background and so on. Simplicity is powerful. What do you do to bring about simplicity?

Overcome Fear

Fear is commonly interpreted as negative and uncomfortable. It can be. But it doesn’t have to be. Facing that fear may be just what is necessary to grow and to learn. Some fear and nerves are good. Physically, they keep the body and mind alert. There are nerves when we care deeply about something or someone.There’s “skin in the game” and the stakes are high. Fear brings about a call to action and puts us into achievement mode. It’s good to feel it, experience it and then take the lead in controlling it.

But how to keep those fears from overtaking us is another story. We need to get in touch with our thoughts so they don’t overtake us and gain control of our breathing/heart rate. Nerves can set the body and mind into a tailspin to where there is no way back if uncontrolled. Positive thought repetitions work very well. Adopt a mantra like “I believe in myself” or “I can do this.” A mantra when repeated can remove the mind chatter. Next time you hear your mind speaking negative thoughts, replace them with a good mantra.
