Thought Between Thoughts

Thought between thought.
In a place of darkness and void there is a spark, a thought taking shape and form. This thought becomes my own, giving birth to a thousand galaxies in a single breath.
Observing thought between thoughts new realities are born…continuously and simultaneously. Witnessing and allowing.
Traveling to those in need. Giving hope to darkened reality. Giving breath to void, allowing others to breathe a new reality.
Stepping into the Canvas with no thoughts…just observation. Merely an observation of things creates new thought process and allows infinite possibilities to play out. May the thought between thoughts be filled with joy and love, mystery and awe…Ani Po

Appreciate Kindness and Compassion

Whether one believes in a religion or not, and whether one believes in rebirth or not, there isn’t anyone who doesn’t appreciate kindness and compassion.~ Dalai Lama
So many varying opinions and beliefs, it is easy to fall trap to judgment or resentment. Because two trees are different, they should not learn to grow together? Just because two animals of a different breed or class of animal, does not mean they cannot get along.
Looking beyond the conditioning of belief, we see all beings in harmonious fashion. Seeing all with Love and Kindness, we no longer see differences. Banding together as a greater whole, the Canvas is nearly complete.
Go out and share in Love…now it is Complete…Ani Po

Stepping into a Change of Self

Very often a change of self is needed more than a change of scene.~A.C.Benson

Too often looking outwardly, interpreting what we see. Judging good versus bad, pretty versus ugly, joyous and angry. Merely our own interpretation. Finding ourselves in an uncomfortable situation or in a difficult jam, frozen in our own fear or further judgment.

Being present in any given situation possibly amidst chaos or despair, but no longer affected by sadness.  Being present in any given situation we are free to interpret whilst remaining in peace if we so choose.

Maybe there is a co-worker who annoys the tar out of you, or they just don’t get it?! What if…it is they who get it and you whom fail to see truth? Skewed by anger, we only see others as needing to change.

Maybe we spend too much time trying to correct others for varying beliefs, by our standards, and not enough time enjoying what the Canvas of Life has to offer. Seeing differences, celebrating beauty…we shift our thoughts from self to global consciousness. In all the varying colors painted upon the Canvas, we rejoice at the many thoughts and ideas that assemble into one.

Instead of looking how to change things, ask how can we change? Instead of changing scenery, how can we change ourselves?

Stepping into the Canvas with a new perspective…a change of self. We are not to change any one person in the world but merely ourselves. While there is nothing to be done, if there is…it is with self-realization.

 

Drying off our Dampened Spirit

Coming in from the rain,

Allowing fears to wash away.

Squelched by despair,

Renewing our hopes.

The sun returns,

With rainbows promise.

Songs anew,

Melody to sing along.

Drying off our Dampened Spirit we are restored.~Ani Po

 

Stepping into the Rain

Oh the clouds roll in,

Blocking the sunny day.

Worry not,

For it clears troubled hearts.

Step out into the rain,

Won’t you?

That’s it,

Letting it wash away fear.

Look up,

Kissing a thousand angels.

Cleansed of the past,

And worries of future.

Step out into the rain,

Won’t you?

Stepping into the rain we are stepping into our fears. Stepping into fear we are clearing that which holds us back. With every drop, every kiss…we are reminded of healing within our storms…Ani Po

Listening to our Inner Voice

Spinning faster and faster,

The world may go.

Ever-changing faster and faster,

We care to know.

Adapt or resist,

Carries a difference.

Ease and flow,

Or tension and fear.

Letting it go,

Hearing an inner call.

An invite of sorts,

Asking to peel yet another.

Stepping into the Canvas with a heart of ebbs and flows. As with natural course, so to our heart leads the way…Ani Po
