Sunshine Buddha Practice

If you are like me, sometimes going into a still, quiet meditation space is difficult.

When I just can’t get myself to a place that feels comfortable, many times I give up and think “tomorrow is another day”

Sometimes though…….

I do this wonderful practice that is easy and active at the same time.

Bonus for doing this practice in the cold, winter months? I feel energized and warm from the sun – and I live in Seattle where we don’t get to see ...

Frog Night

Last night, alone on the porch,

I swear I heard the deep-throated music of frogs

Keeping time with my heart

I remembered a long ago camping place by the river

Full of quiet for eons and memories for generations

Filling the night air with longing and comfort

It was magical and memorable

Me. Frogs. Night.

Communing with those who ever sat in that same spot

Contemplating the cosmos

Talking with Angels

Another from Faith Squared

I was having a conversation with one of my favorite angels, Mary Magdelene (whose name, I recently learned, means “tower”, “fortress”, “elevated” and also “magnificent”) and these words came:

I am confident and confused

I am comfortable between worlds

I am capable

I am tenacious

I hear voices to my heart

I ...

A single impassioned (and divinely timed) conversation about their respective love affairs with language and writing led ...

But then…..I decided to take control!

I cleared out cupboards, closets, the garage. Basically every spot in my house. No drawer un-turned.

And you know ...
