Weight of Focus

Shifting your focus &/or attention to any noun (person, place, thing, idea) gives said noun more weight.

What we focus on we give power through our breath, as our bodies and minds are highly susceptible to synchronizing with different rhythms and energies.

Sitting in Your Flow

Sitting with yourself, silently allows you to sometimes enjoy, sometimes confront the paradoxes of yourself and the world around you.

Sitting with yourself, in your own flow allows you to feel the importance of yourself through breath, heartbeat and your vibrating atoms.

Sitting with yourself allows you practice just being in hilarious chaos.

Always Now

Now is not a journey because we’re always in now even though our minds are often trying to take us out of the present, which is a place of non-judgement surrender/letting go within all of us. 

This is love.
It is, we are.

Disappointing Attachment

Attachment to any thought, positive or negative, no matter how uplifting it may be is also setting oneself up for disappointment.

Release with Forgiveness

If we allow ourselves to forgive not only ourselves, but everyone else, we would release so much trauma within and around us.

For some, this takes time. Others can do this after a single dance. Regardless, when one surrenders to their own flow of the present moment, release cannot help but take place, which in urn creates healing.

Melting Time

Salvador Dali's famous melting clock painting.

Time melts when we allow ourselves to be. Remember, only parts of our mind perceive time. 

Perhaps this is why I’ve often to been attracted to Salvador Dali’s pieces with melting clocks.

May we all melt into the light of ourselves and allow time to become irrelevant. With a molten exhale, may we all shed ourselves of old patterns and thoughts that no longer serve any purpose on our journey, releasing ourselves of the past and surrendering to infinite futures.

Projecting Proportions of Expectations

Sometimes other people have different priorities than you. It is your decision to sometimes put their priorities ahead of yours, or not. But this can be a tricky thing.

For most of their life a friend of mine holds the priorities of others in higher esteem than their own. While again, this is each individual person’s choice, they’ve taken this thought process a step further and they have attached themselves to a projection of expecting others to do the same for them. Unfortunately for my friend, not everyone is inside their head to know this. But more importantly, this idea is not what is reality, which often creates suffering and tension.

Breathing Journey

Every breath is a journey from thought, body & mind into the world & then recycled into more thoughts, bodies & minds. It is a divine journey many often forget.

We Make Our Days

Every day it becomes more apparent that we decide what will/won’t affect and effect us. We have the ability to make our days “good” or “bad,” even though there is no such thing as a day itself being “good” or “bad.”

I now a person who continues to look for things to worry about despite having what many would consider a “good day” after accomplishing many tasks. Conversely, I also know someone who, by all accounts could have what others would consider a “bad day,” yet almost always will find something to smile about, be it a brief moment or a lesson learned from that day.

When it comes to creating the brief realities of different universes each day, our abilities in this area are much more profound and self-fulfilling than we often realize. This isn’t meant to suggest or imply environmental factors don’t play any part in the unfolding of ourselves. To an extent, certain things are indeed out of our control, especially when we are young and easily impressionable to imprints of the world. HOWEVER, as we age, there is a certain amount of responsibility many of us need to own up to when it comes to our reactions of everything. Since age grants perspective (not wisdom), we have the ability to look back at past actions and reactions to hopefully learn in some way. Based on our perspective and experience, this also means we must recognize how much all of our actions and reactions are now a choice.

Naturally, it is sometimes quite easy to become swept up in the thoughts and emotions of others. But again, this is where meditation and mindfulness comes into play, allowing us to see these patterns within ourselves and others.

Serious Life

The serious life is bittersweet. Some people seem to think that those who joke all the time don’t take life seriously, as if jokes are something frivolous or an amusing party trick. Perhaps to some people they are, but the power of laughter is prevalent throughout the world. Not only is the physical act of laughing something that is healthy for mind and body, but some jokes are able to cut to the core of certain things perhaps others hold sacred, or maybe some jokes reveal more about the people laughing. Jokes are a powerful tool.

Just ask John Lennon.

Laughing is a powerful tool.

John Lennon on violence and humor.
