Energy flows where the attention is!
In this space of between and betwixt
Is where there is no time
For it is irrelevant.
And what matters is this Now!
A dance speaks much without words.
A look, a stance, a tug, a step
There is energy playing in every move.
And energy speaks without words.
Every dancer creates energy.
Movements convey in the emoting.
The essence of the moves.
For every dance has a story!
Reaching across just a little more
Every extension is inclusive
To move beyond in space
To explore in a trustful knowing
A dare into the unknown
To find a new space and be expansive
To forsee the connection with faith
In spaces beyond the limited.
Discover your truths
Root the self and stretchIn trust and faith
You will never falter
Love can happen to any of us
In a heartbeat
But it takes all of you
To sustain the love.
For true love is precious
Love takes effort and care
Love ain’t easy
Love is not a game
To play and forget.
True Love is commitment
Love is consideration
Love is expression
Love is knowing what matters
Love is challenging
Love is showing up
Love is mutual
Love is intuitive
Love is kind
Love is rewarding
Love is responsible
Make time for love.
Live life lovingly!
The silence between your actions or movements are the bridges to our conscious experiences and the greater your awareness the greater the creative potency of the action itself.Savvy
When you dance, if you still your thoughts to simply learn to flow with the partner, the atmosphere, the music you will undoubtedly enliven yourself in the process and what you have is a beautiful dance of togetherness bridging the spaces between the steps with a conscious awareness …… And that is when dancing feels like a miracle that’s happening!
- Start the day with a few minutes of silence and observing the breath
- Take time to pause and watch nature and try to be one with it . .. Maybe a sunrise, a sunset, a beach view watching the waves, the stars in the sky, the moon, the sky, or a rose or any flower or potted plant, or maybe a tree in your garden.
- Make sure to have moments where you are free of your cellphone, tv, computer, or any electronic appliance.
- Make a point of actually listening and understanding as others speak and allow the other to speak as much as yourself.
- Accept every moment in the life you have now and cherish it for what it is…. Cultivating an attitude of gratitude 🙂
If emotions were tubes of colours
The way we paint every day
The way we live our lives
The way we think and express
Our own experiences in being.
Will be a riot on the canvas.
Envisioning in the seeing…
Flashes of brilliance in bright yellow
Of optimism and cheer
Sporadically surging joy and ecstasy.
Going green in connectedness
Contented lines flowing in trustful acceptance
Or moves markedly hesitant in fear and apprehension.
Arresting artistry of living life in loving kindness
Explosions of reds marking anger
Or in delusions of grandeur in aggression.
In ingenious masterstrokes in fits of rage
Of imagination running wild.
Colour of Purple in projecting pride.
Of passionate perseverance to detail
Or a certain aloofness in respectful reservation.
A sense of ascension and royalty.
Shades of blue in thoughtful flow and serenity
Or organic spaced out zenful zones
Of mindful movements in the making.
Yes there is an emotion in every colour
As colours are but tools of expression
Of the ever changing moods of man
How colorful is the spirit of our soul.
Every colour plays a significant role
Like in the wheel of colours
So are emotions that appear
In the wheel of life.
Each plays it’s part.
All matters to the whole.
Our thought vibrations create a change, even a single one
Make sure to think well!
Words create waves, even a single word
Make sure it is positive!
Actions create ripples even a single deed
Make sure it’s well intended!
Songs carry resonances afar, even a single tune
Make sure it plays from a loving heart
Whatever you feel, sense and do
Is never only restricted to you.
The vibrations carry on afar
In ways we may not know
It changes the world
In every moment in time
Make sure to feel responsible
You make a difference
Make sure it is a good one!
The Silent Retreat
Four monks decided to meditate silently without speaking for two weeks.
They began with enthusiasm and no one said a word the whole day.
By nightfall of the first day, the candle began to flicker and then went out.
The first monk blurted out, “Oh, no! The candle is out.”
The second monk said, “Hey! We are not supposed to speak!”
The third monk said in an irritated voice, “What is this? Why did you two break the silence?”
The fourth monk smiled and said, “Wow! I’m the only one who hasn’t spoken.”
Each monk broke the silence for a different reason, each of which is a common stumbling block in our inner journey: distraction, judgement, anger and pride.
The first monk got distracted by one aspect of his experience (the candle) and forgot what was more important – the practice of witnessing without reacting.
The second monk was more worried about others following the rules than in actually practising himself. He was quick to judge without noticing that he himself was guilty of what he was criticizing.
The third monk let his anger towards the first two monks affect him.
The singular burst of anger ruined the effort of the day.
The fourth monk lost his way because of pride. He was convinced he was superior to the others, proving his ignorance.
Why did the fourth monk speak at all? He could have simply maintained his silence and he would have been successful in his endeavour.
But if he had, chances are, the other three might have continued to argue and not even noticed his silence. Some people are like this.
Their motto is “If I am doing something good, but no one notices, I might as well not be doing it at all.” They believe that the reward is not in the effort, but in the recognition.
There is a beautiful quote, “It is the province of knowledge to speak; it is the privilege of wisdom to listen.”
As we learn to truly listen, witness and observe without impulsively reacting with distraction, judgement, anger and pride, then we understand the true meaning of silence.
The Wisdom of Silence
Silence has the strength of spaces in sublime consciousness…
Silence shows the way of patience
Silence activates our guiding spirit
Silence powers the strength of intuition
Silence moves towards deep contemplation
Silence evolves the spirit of understanding
Silence graces atmosphere with quietude
Silence defends without a word
Silence strengthens the soul.
Silence can be a knowing of the peace within .
Silence is painful in its struggles and valuable in itself. Silence is in utter desperation, deep contemplation with phases of meditative connectedness. Silence is never thoughtless or mindless.
Silence dwells in the spaces between the steps to access whenever. Silence leads and the path appears.
Trust the lessons learned in silence.

Are you ready?
Your abilities have a way of showing up
In bringing forth your inner purpose.
Even if you haven’t ultilized them yet.
They will be visible to others at some point or other.
If ever you feel you dont have it in you
For whatever reason to pursue your gifts and talents.
Keep the faith and use your abilities
To bring out the best in others.
Reach out to help another trust in themselves.
Give hope wherever you can.
Immerse yourself in spreading goodwill
You will find yourself on the path that’s meant for you.
Our purpose creates us
We are born into it
It matters not how small or big
We are meant to fulfill it.
There is much good that we do without knowing…
And unknowingly lighten the load off another
A simple smile that sends a spark of hope
A warm embrace that spirits up hearts
A share of kindness that passes ones way.
Every little bit helps make a difference to this world.
Lets care to keep being all that we are.
And do the best we can.
Because we truly can!
Gentleness is not a weakness.
Infact it requires much mustering of strength.
The one who has seen pain enough
Has two paths before him laid
One of revenge and hate for that which he endured
Or a path of understanding that gentleness is the way
Through winds of misfortune and misgivings
The path of the heart leads to awakenings in awareness.
Of feeling the suffering in empathy for fellow beings.
What we endure today may have been endured by someone before
So why not create a path of compassion
Knowing change begins with you.
“May the warm winds of heaven blow softly upon your house.
May the Great Spirit bless all who enter there.
May your mocassins make happy tracks in many snows,
And may the rainbow always touch your shoulder.”
