Spirit Speaks - Prayer


'I don't know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down into the  grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.
Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn't everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it your plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?
~ Mary Oliver, from 'The Summer Day'

Buddha Speaks - On Bliss



The Ultimate Bliss


Blissful is solitude

for one who’s content,

    who has heard the Dhamma,

    who sees.

Blissful is non-affliction

with regard for the world,

    restraint for living beings.

Blissful is dispassion

with regard for the world,

    the overcoming of sensuality.

But the subduing of the conceit 'I am'—

   That is truly

    the ultimate bliss.


- Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche, "Do Nothing"

Angels Speak–Grow Old Gracefully


I was in a seminar last week where the facilitator talked about most people in developed countries will live well into their nineties or into their one hundred years plus.  He said this is due to lifestyle, changing medicine towards aging, and, the new belief that we do not have to die in our sixties or seventies.

I found his comment on the ‘belief’ of dying quite profound. I started wondering about what other beliefs are limiting us.  And, it struck me that we all have a belief that youth is the ideal.  It is shoved at us in movies, on media, and in style. 

Today, make peace with your age and what is ahead for you.  It is glorious!

Spirit Speaks - Walking In Energy



In essence, everything is energy and cannot be destroyed. ~~
Ted Andrews

It is important to remember that we are energy. Einstein told us that. And energy cannot be created or destroyed, it just changes form. ~~Rhonda Byrne

You can use your life in a very useful and intelligent way. You can very well transform that negative energy into a positive energy that empowers you and makes life meaningful. ~~ Thich Nhat Hanh

You let the energy go wherever it wants. I have such a rich spiritual life. Most people take drugs to experience that. ~~ Shirley Maclaine

I can tell you that anything that happens in the physical body will happen in the pattern of the energy fields first.  So you actually create distortions in your own energy pattern that have to do with unforgivingness towards your self. ~~Barbara Brennan Quote

Angels Speak - Control


Each of us has been taught the need to control what is around us.  We learn it from parents, from school, and from our work.  Control comes in many forms, usually in ways that deter our growth emotionally and spiritually.

When someone is learning a new task, yes, there does need to be some controls in place to help them stay between the lines.  We watch, check, and offer feedback.  However, when that person has learned the task, then we must let them go.  For if we do not, they will never grow beyond what we let them learn.

Breathe out your need to control today, and everyday.

Buddha Speaks - Living with Grace


The person who is a master in the art of living makes little distinction between their work and their play, their labor and their leisure, their mind and their body, their education and their recreation, their love and their religion.  They hardly know which is which. They simply pursue their vision of excellence and grace in whatever they do, leaving others to decide whether they are working or playing. To them, they are always doing both.  ~~~ from Zen Buddhism

Moving through January, try to remember that you can be graceful in what ever you do.  It is born in us.  We forget it, and then forget how to be graceful. 

May your life flow with ease.

Angels Speak – Many Worlds


As we begin the New Year, remember that there are many worlds out there.  Anything is possible, and everything we know may no longer be true.

It takes courage to move through life with grace.  It is easier to move through every day looking to fight with everyone… it takes less energy.

May you move gently through this year.

Happy New Year 2014


Make Me Strong in Spirit

Make me strong in spirit
Courageous in action
Gentle of heart
Let me act in wisdom
Conquer my fear and doubt
Discover my own hidden gifts
Meet others with compassion
Be a source of healing energies
And face each day with hope and joy
