Beginning Again

Be a beginner.
Be new again.
Be innocent.
Be curious.
Be full of wonder.
Be open and willing.
Be as a child.
Be free. 
Be trusting.
Be as You really Are.

When we are full of information, we think we know.
When we are full of defenses, we think we are safe.
When we are full of power, we are arrogant.
When we are full of baloney, we are just cheap sandwich meat.

When we are empty, we can be a channel.
When we are open, we can see the light.
When we are willing, we will be led.
When we are free, we are unlimited.

Your thoughts about yourself and your life create a vibration.
The vibration of fear is slow and erratic and attracts more of the same.
The vibration of Love is fast and flowing and attracts more of the same.
When you give ourselves the space and time and direction, we can open and quicken the flow.

Some say it takes lifetimes.
Some say 20 minutes morning and evening.
Some say just five minutes a day to allow the radiance within to be realized.
Some read about it. Some talk about it. Some try it. Some simply practice.

There is no better time than right now!
Sit still. 
Breathe easily and naturally, fully and freely.
Simply let yourself be.
No need to think or do, try or get anything.

When you feel “safe”, imagine there really is a light in you.
Visualize there is a radiant Love in you, shining forth from you.
Believe that this light in You is the energy of the Universe, of Goodness it Self.
Give yourself just a moment to smile on your openness and willingness to trust Love is True.

When you give yourself to Love, Love will give to you.
When you step away from fear, Love will find its way.
When you forgive your own mistakes, you will know the way is clear.
When you love yourself without guilt, resentment,  criticism or doubt, you will feel  unconditionally Loved.

And so it is, we can give ourselves everything we really want. 
Or deny ourselves all we have and never know all is well.

I am loving you in being willing,
Together we can do this.
And everyone will benefit.

You Are A Flower in the Garden of Life
If you would grow to be your best self
Be patient, not demanding
Accepting, not condemning
Nurturing, not withholding
Self-marveling, not belittling
Gently guiding, not pushing & punishing

For you are more sensitive than you know
Mankind is tough as war
Yet delicate as flowers
We can endure agonies
But we open fully only to warmth & light
And our need to grow is fragile as a fragrance
Dispersed by storms of will
To return only when those storms are still

So accept, respect,
Attend your sensitivity

A flower
Cannot be opened
With a hammer
