Me Time

 

Healthy ‘Me’ time leads to Happy ‘We’ time. How often do we witness someone who continuously gives and then complains they are so tired. Why do they not take a day to themselves? We often get so deep in what we Love, we forget to take the necessary “Me Time.” Take a break for you today and enjoy the Very Best Me Time!

Falling into the Canvas

It is not enough to take part in the Canvas of Life, but more important to fall into the canvas with whole heart and soul. What does it mean to fall into the canvas? It means not just stepping into the canvas while actively participating in the canvas, but being and active participant with continuous intention of actively participating in the canvas AND creating the life that is most Desired while enjoying every aspect of the canvas.

From the darkened clouds painted on the canvas to the neon fluorescent and radiating colors, we are to create the lives as we choose not as others choose. Whenever a painter paints it is through his own interpretation of the Universe, but when others analyze His work they attach their own interpretation.

If we only see one side of the painting, we miss the creator’s intent. See the beauty of all the varying colors/varying interpretations and lose yourself in the many mysteries that lay before you in the canvas.

Where does one begin? Put down the blackberry. Hang up the cellphone. Stop texting for moment. Just sit and ‘be’ for a moment, allowing the true nature to fill your soul. Can’t do it?! Then take a weekend and spend some needed time in the woods. Maybe it is time for a retreat?!

It is about taking time to enjoy the beauty of nature…returning back to Mother Earth and being one. Many will oppose this idea, but eventually will need some necessary downtime or as I like to call it…’Me Time.’ during this me time is the one way we can bridge the gap between us and the Universe.

Stepping Into the Canvas choose to fall into it with whole heart and soul. Lend a hand, an ear or a friendly smile. Do what you want today not what others say ‘you should’ do. Stay away from the trap of pleasing others, but please only yourself. Today I will not only step, but will fall into the canvas.

Just Getting Started

Words of simplicity,
Heart of gold

It all begins,
With a single breath.

I breathe now,
Accepting my fate.

The message will be clear,
Painful and rewarding.

Truth will speak,
It shall be heard.

The time is now,
And I Am here.

Absence of Self

Removing the flesh,
I go invisible.
Nothing left,
But spirit.
To many, I am invisible.
To one percent not.

I Am in this world,
But not of it.
Returning the way it was,
I am nothing.
In this void,
Finding Universal Truth.

No more hate,
No more fear.
Judgment has ceased,
Forgiveness for all.
Nothing left,
But everything I need.
Giving away my flesh,
The Spirit has returned.

I Am you,
You are me.
He is me,
She is we.
I Am Love
…and everything in between.

My Beloved

Like the wind you came into my life;
Your laugh, your smile stopping me in my tracks.

So young and blind;
You took my hand, saving me years of pain.

Letting go of the past;
grasping new beginnings.

Giving you everything I had;
Including the bad and ugly.

I hope it was enough;
Prepare for more.

We grew as independents;
But remained as one.

Once again I give you everything;
But this time it is the very best.

May we continue to Shine;
Like the sun rising each day.

Equally embracing the darkness;
The night may bring.

We are one…
forever more.

I Love you…
infinity!

Now What?

The Warrior, elevating to a new level of consciousness arrives at a place of ‘Now What?” From the time he received the first call to this élite status of warrior he is learning the lesson, elevating to new levels and wondering what next. He adapts to his new surroundings and quickly accepts the next challenge.

 

When he first took the call, as in the story of Samuel, the Warrior began dumping excess baggage from the past allowing more freedom to emerge within the self. It is in our ability to let go of past beliefs, past experiences we allow true nature to emerge. It is in this true nature we all find our true identity. In the case of the Warrior, he did not understand who or what he was to become until he first accepted the new reality as ancient Warrior for Peace. Now standing for peace, he chooses only to engage when needed.

 

Even still, the Warrior learns the lessons arriving at the place of ‘now what?’ But the time spent within these lessons gets much shorter, for he learns quickly and moves on to the next. Being able to flow like the river and change with every turn carved into the land, we learn to adapt quicker and quicker with each new lesson. Many battles lay ahead for the Warrior but he accepts whatever comes his way.

 

Stepping into the Canvas we accept many lessons that lay before us. The Canvas displays new scenery every time we step up to it, but how we see it is up to us. See the beauty or see the despair, whichever way you see it shall be so. Be open to the new beginnings and further embrace the many… ‘Now What?’

Invictus

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
By
William Ernest Henley
