Conscious Tidbits – What If Questions

The only day that matters is today.

Find the joy in here and now.

Pause, Take A Breath & Remember
How AMAZING It Is To Be Alive Now!

 Hello, Beautiful You!  I hope you are enjoying June while it lasts. 🙂

Last week I found a gorgeous little gem of a Youtube video – it is Louie Schwartzberg’s TedTalk.  Louie’s time lapse photography of the earth is so beautiful – it takes my breath away!  And his message is simple yet profound;  be grateful for today, there will NEVER be another day like today.

What if?

“What if…”   wonder questions help  jar you out of  “logical mind mode”  and open you up to possibilities and choices you may be overlooking. Here are a few examples:

What if Life is all about creating more Joy?

What if  you are capable of changing ANYTHING in your Life?

What if you truly do co-create your life?  What do you choose to create today?

What if your subconscious mind is silently mucking up your life?

What if everything your parents ever taught you about the world was just and interesting point of view?

How Much Joy Can We Add to the World Today??

Divine Mother

My iPhone camera and I went wandering in the back yard this morning and came back blessed. Everywhere I turned, my eyes spied infinite shapes and forms of life dancing with exuberant joy! The perfect summer solstice gift from Mother Nature.

Thank you Mother!

 

This piece of a poem by Rumi catches a whiff of how I feel when I see Divine Mother in Nature:

 

Don’t grieve.

Anything you lose comes round in another form.

The child weaned from mother’s milk

now drinks wine and honey mixed.

God’s joy moves from unmarked box

to unmarked box, from cell to cell.

As rainwater down into flowerbed.

As roses, up from the ground.

Now it looks like a plate of rice and fish,

now a cliff covered with vines,

now a horse being saddled.

It hides within these, till one day

it cracks them open.

Rumi, 13th century Sufi mystic

Here and Now

Here and now it is sunny outside

I chop carrots. Mince garlic.

Heat oil. Salivate.

Inhale the aroma.

 

Here and now I am sad inside

I grieve. Shed tears

Ponder death. 

See pain all around.

 

Here and now I sit with it all

Breathe pain. Breathe sorrow.

Breathe garlic and sun

Open to life.

Wet Mother

There’s a message in the water, they say
Yes! I cry
She says dive in, enjoy
Love your juice
The wet messy wonder
In the flow of life.

There’s emotion in the water, they say
Yes! I cry
All tears and fears
Rage and sorrow
The entire saga is there
Within your flow.

This Earth’s all about the water, they say
Yes! I cry
Whales sing their song
A love for mother ocean
Who birthed you
And flows within still.

You are more water than solid, they say
Yes! I cry
The better to flow
Within, ride ocean’s wave
Connect with mother
Warm wet mama.
Juicy blue.

The Green

Green, everywhere green

Falling water cascades

Ripples out anew.

 

Icy fingers caress

I glide through

Search for other side.

 

A shiver of fear

I am in the heart

Behind the falling tears.
