The gift of stillness


In making time for stillness,
You offer the world a gift,
That others might see themselves
More clearly reflected in you.

Trusting in the future


As the tree offers her final leaves to the wind,
Trusting in her future,
Let us welcome the stripping away of time,
Trusting in the rebirth that awaits us;
Trusting that the old is simply making way
For what’s to come.

Tethered to Now


Resting in the moment,
In the fullness of being,
We become more aware
Of both the potential for action
And the fragile ties that tether us to Now.

Creativity the flame


Creativity is the flame, burning in our hearts,
That helps us to remember
That we are alive, unique, original, gifted;
Born to bring something special into the world
That stems from the spark of the divine
That ignites our souls.
What will you create today?

Beneath the mask

Who are you beneath the mask?
Who am I beneath mine?
And how does the face we offer the world
Reflect — and color — the self within?
Remember this: who you are is deeper, truer,
And more like me than either of us imagines.

See things as they truly are


Our beliefs are like a camera:
A lens through which we view the world,
The use of which can cut us off
From experiencing it directly.
Perhaps today, at some point,
We might set those thoughts aside
And see things as they truly are,
Not just as we perceive them.

Imagine possibility


You’ve spent a lifetime walking
In the shadows of others’ expectations.
What would it look like
To step out into the light?
Take a moment today, and imagine the possibilities.
