When life invites

Pay attention!
Look around you! 
Life is calling us, every moment: 
Sometimes inviting gratitude, 
Sometimes inviting change. 
There may be those who resent 
Our willingness to listen and respond, 
Casting clouds across the bright horizon; 
Listen, look, and do not be afraid — 
The dark and the light together 
Give us a better sense of where we’re heading.

Share your unique brilliance!

Each of us has a story to tell, 
A talent to share, a unique perspective on life. 
When will you find — or make — the time 
To express your own remarkable originality?

Awaiting the rain of love

Today, let us rest, 
And follow the example of the flowers, 
Shedding our busyness and 
Quietly opening ourselves to the rain of love...

Listen to your dreams

We are the co-creators of our dreams. 
They are not ours alone, so pay attention: 
Listen for the call to act, for the future 
That lies waiting in the mist; 
An invitation to some new unfolding purpose.

There will be a way through

We just have to trust 
That there is a way through. 
Keep walking and know 
There will be light and beauty, 
openness and freedom, 
Waiting for us on the other side.

Focus on freedom

The flag on the right looms larger here,
But it’s smaller, closer, darker, and
From where I stand, droops backwards.
I am determined to continue
To focus on the larger flag,
However distant it may be:
The way it flows freely in the wind,
The way it sings of aspirations
That once made our country strong.

Find your way to joy

You’ve come so far, and the end is in sight.
Why not be a kid again?
Lie down in the soft grass, touch the earth,
Breathe a sigh of gratitude,
And allow the pull of gravity to roll you home.
Yes, of course, tomorrow will be another day,
With new challenges to face, 
new tasks to accomplish,
But for now — couldn’t you just... be?
Relax, and find your way to joy.
