I Choose Me

Of all the people in the world I could be…I choose me.

Be true to thyself.

Ask “is this for me?”

Go when others say you cannot.

Dare to create the unknown.

Hold onto nothing…not even a single thought.

Play till heart is content…then play some more!

Sing and dance with inspiration.

Laugh and rejoice to each new day.

Of all the people in the world I could be…I choose me.~Ani Po

 

 

 

Breathing In Breathing Out

Come sit with me, come sing with me,
Breathing in.
Share with me, Share with you,
Breathing out.
We are one, we are freed,
Breathing in.
Casting into the wind…
Moment to moment
Breathing out.
Moments passing by at lightning speeds,
Breathing in.
How many are we going to miss?
Breathing out.
Casting into the wind…
Blink and it is gone,
Breathing in.
Another opportunity passing by.
Breathing out.
Sit and contemplate,
Breathing in.
Sit…just be…Breathing out…Casting into the wind…Ani Po

Past to Present, Present to Future

Seeking answers our thoughts are brought forth, intent to the forefront of thought process. Sitting at the cusp of our forefront and it is foretold unto self. From lesser reptilian brain to greater of the lobes. Our Frontal lights up with answers, creative juices…awaiting our wishes so that it may command.
Forgiveness of self or forgiveness of others, seeking higher perspective to any given situation. Forgiving self, accepting all possibilities as they unfold. On cellular level or Macroscopic proportions, a deeper understanding exists. To forgive is to forget? Forgetting does not mean the literal but letting go of its stronghold on thought process. Crippled by our own thoughts, we elevate to the foreground of consciousness. Sitting at the cusp it is foretold.
Within our own practice there’s an ability to go from past, or reptilian brain, to a higher possibility held within our frontal lobe or the forefront of the thought process. Foreknowledge, forward thinking…all bridged within seeking that which we search. It is our seeking that bridges thoughts from past to present, bringing us into a forever present moment.
From moment to moment we arrive in a place of paradise. Paradise entered through the heart, but through frontal thoughts the key exists.  For it is written unto thee, look to the heavens we shall. Third eye or higher perspective? From past to present, present to future it shall be written…it is foretold…
So I sit enjoying this space…Ani Po

Helping Self, Healing the World

I used to think helping others was the way to healing the world. Carrying groceries for someone struggling, holding a door for another. While these are all niceties and are noteworthy, still something remains missing.

Just the simplest form of holding a door for another. Brings great joy, but what about those who do not show gratitude for our good deed? Are we attached to the satisfaction we get from another’s gratitude? Our attachment will bring suffering sooner or later.

Remembering why we do things, if that is what we choose, letting go of outcomes or expected returns. Having no attachment to the deeds we do, our reward will be far greater. Sometimes it is merely worrying (or not worrying) about the self.

Helping self, we are healing the world…Ani Po

Healing the World

Our reality is our own…with an opportunity for change. We can choose to accept it or fight it. One yields ease and the other dis-ease.
Our reality is our own and others realities are their own. We can choose to accept theirs for face value or we can repel against them. Choosing to accept theirs…we alter our reality. Repelling against theirs, we are altering our reality.
Their reality is constantly changing just as our own. Accept it or fight, makes no difference…both have consequences.
At light speed or floating along effortlessly, we are continually expanding and contracting, ebbing and flowing.
We open the box, taking a peek at a new reality. What is this new reality? Like a child we anticipate joy and excitement that awaits. We have just opened a new reality…Ani Po

Testing a Person’s Will

Life has many ways of testing a person’s will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once.~Paulo Coelho

Ever notice when we have nothing to do we can drive ourselves crazy? Is it guilt? Do we feel we must be doing something with our spare time? Can we grant ourselves permission to just be and sit quietly with nothing to do. In doing nothing we are still doing something.

Ever notice when the ‘shit hits the fan’ it all hits the fan at one time? As soon as we get busy, everything wants our undivided attention! We have a busy day at work, no lunch and no breaks, the phone rings of the hook with more questions that need answering. We feel as though we are going to break at any moment and that is usually when our children step into the picture…looking for our undivided attention. Pop…we lose it. Why?

Are both related? or separate issues? I feel they are both interrelated. If we are conditioned to be ‘busy’ at all times then we feel we have to remain busy. During the busy-ness of the day we are challenged as to how we can add more to our day versus discerning that boiling point and knowing when we are done for the day. Which way would keep from having meltdowns?

Stepping into the Canvas simply allowing. Allowing nothingness to fill our days or busy-ness to do the same. No matter the scenario we shall remain in peace and joy, giving more thanks for the Canvas of Life.

Magnanimous People

Magnanimous people have no vanity, they have no jealousy, and they feed on the true and the solid wherever they find it. And, what is more, they find it everywhere.~Van Wyck Brooks

With gratitude in our hearts we look not into short comings of life but blessings of such, not down on people but lift them up, not at the darkened clouds but rainbows which follow. Foreseeing lack we merely confirm lack within the canvas, witness abundance and it will forever flow.
