The Breath of Our Brother

It is not the breath of self, but the breath of our Brother that we give life.~Ani Po

Coming to new understanding of what it means to give and receive. As I begin to understand the sea of emotions that we all share, I begin to understand that the emotions that I once felt may not have been my own. Instead it is quite possible that I was experiencing the emotions of others. Letting go of my own, I am letting go of the others. Breathing now, releasing the vibration that no longer serves this body…I adopt a vibration of Higher Source, moving forward…cleansing one breath at a time…

Taking Another Turn


I am beginning to understand things with such clarity. Just coming back from a funeral today, where I began to feel a sea of emotions fill the room. Instinctively I began to keep time, passing energy and healing broken threads to all existence.

My sister-in-law, a woman of great faith, loses her Mother but gains much wisdom with her passing. As I witness this, I am left witnessing wisdom filling within me as well. Tears begin to flow, but I come to understand that throughout my life they were not my own but tears of humanity. Is it possible that we are merely here to correct he broken threads to our Brothers and Sisters?

Jesus spoke of this and so did Buddha, but who are we to think that we have this gift? I say to you now, Who are we not?! I began tapping, humming, singing quietly under my breath, as I did when I was younger.

When I was younger, I used to sing in the choir, often singing at funerals. Never knowing the deceased, but feeling such sadness and joy simultaneously. As I sang, the Holy Spirit began singing through me…filling my body with Spirit…becoming an extension of, then becoming one with Spirit. I forgot how to be in these moments, but Peru reminded me of who I was and what I am here to do. Just as I am here, so are you…to Mend the Broken Threads that bind us all…returning to All is Good.

When I left the funeral I called my friend to thank him for giving me the nudge, thanking him for reminding me to sing. Sadly, I have forgotten the songs that once sang from my lips, but happily report that it is not the words that matter but the vibration that is sung. So the journey continues and contemplation of the next steps, looking to Spirit…keep giving me bits and pieces, invoking memories of what once were and what they shall be.

Stepping into the Canvas, taking another turn.Turning to the unknown once again…I find myself no longer alone, but at peace, whole and ready to learn and grow with clearer understanding of what will be.

Have a glorious day…blessings of gratitude as we are healed.

Strength that Will Endure

Those who contemplate the beauty of the Earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.~Rachel Carson

Leading to Brighter Days

Often when we look upon the shadows of our soul, we get a glimpse of light…leading to brighter days.~Ani Po

Whether it is the past which haunts us or the future that appears to be grim, through contemplation we find a brighter outlook upon our days. It is within the acceptance that we are not perfect and we are stronger than we know, that It Is found. If we allow our shadows to cloud our days, then we remain in darkness…accepting our shadows, looking to a brighter solution…we are found….

Ability to Wait

Patience is not simply the ability to wait – it’s how we behave while we’re waiting.~Joyce Meyer

Whether life is going as planned or not so much, we are defined by our actions as it unfolds. Are we patient or are we pacing with great irritability? One displays true patience and the other shows we are not…relax it is on its way…

Loving Someone Is About Giving

giving it all away

In the morning of my life it was all about me, me, me and where or what I was going to conquer next. Entering the afternoon of my life, it no longer is about me, but everyone else. Contemplating my own life’s journey and where hit has brought me, it is time to refocus and give back to the world.

Caught up in the rat race of every day life, I grew accustomed to what everyone else found normal. How much stuff will I accumulate, how much money I will bring in. Not that money is good or bad, but where was the focus? Was my intent to gain only monetary value or was my intent on being successful on a grander scale?

If my only concern was with money or how much stuff I will accumulate, then assuredly I would always feel empty…never being truly satisfied.

On a recent trip to Peru, I was enlightened to the fact that many communities live well below poverty standards, but yet they are happy. How is this so? Are they accustomed to living in poverty? or are they accustomed to being appreciative to what they have?

There might be a little of both here, but it is without a doubt that if we only accept the Canvas of Life as it is, with much higher appreciation, then we ourselves will learn from what the Canvas presents to us. Through appreciation of having enough, we accelerate without limitations…forward into a new reality of giving selflessly to those nearest us or to the far extensions of humanity.

My wife, my family, my friends – they’ve all taught me things about love and what that emotion really means. In a nutshell, loving someone is about giving, not receiving.~Nicholas Sparks

Through appreciation of where or how we arrived in our current situations, we instinctively adopt a new philosophy…that of having more than enough. Having more than enough…we again, instinctively look to give it all away.

Stepping into the Canvas in a state of giving. In giving, we are receiving. No matter the path that leads us to our reality, we accept it as it is and move on…in true happiness. Just for today, reach out to another, make their day…give selflessly…painting a new Reality within the Canvas of Life.

The Beauty of the Canvas

The Beauty of the Canvas lies in the detail of a single stroke.~Ani Po

However we see things in the outer world, defines how we see ourselves on the inner world. Find beauty in every step and surely it will present itself with every thought of self. Everywhere we look there is a miracle, why not see the self as such?!
