Mindfulness Meditation helps you to grasp the totality of life. It helps you to understand the conditioned patterns, belief systems, and memory are not living, but dead moments already. It is the realization that true living can only be lived in a freedom that moves with the current of Creation — forever open to each moment teaming with new potential.
No Longer a Prisoner of Thought
As I stepped outside of my thoughts, I saw them as the thoughts of my culture, my father, my mother, those who lived in my immediate vicinity.
I started to cling less and less to the persona that I called my personality. With insight, i was free to be. I could understand my life and which way I need to go.
Mindfulness Meditation and quiet contemplation moved me to the next evolutionary shift that we humans must make.
It is the one thing that will push Humanity forward from this stuck-on maintaining the status quo.
I turned around and look directly at my life and saw that I could transform myself and meet the challenge before me. It has been my mission to transform education ever since I entered the arena in 1992.
After leaving my fulltime job as an educator in 2001, I began to see the slow decline in Democracy that we see on a national level.
This loss of purpose is directly related to the decline of the educational function of schools as a vehicle to transform the life of the child.
Journey into Mindfulness
Mindfully walk and connect to the Earth.
Feel the solid ground beneath your feet.
Imagine an anchor rooted with trees.
Holding you firmly to the ground.
Raise your hands above your head.
Reach for the sky.
Feel the connection from Earth to Heaven.
You have just grounded yourself.
Your footsteps are left in the sand.
Turn around see where you have been.
Shake the dust off your heels.
The next step you take will be light and airy.
You now walk with a gentle gait.
Touching the earth ever so gently.
You once again glance over your shoulders.
There are no footprints in the sand.
Your body floats above the ground.
Moving you to higher places.
Left on the ground is your past.
Which begins to shatter and break apart.
The heavy burden that you used to carry.
Now lay on the ground nourishing those who follow your footpath.
You are a part of the earth.
As you live the garden on Earth will flourish and thrive.
Journey Into Mindfulness
A Daily Practice
In Poetry and Prose
Let go of the stress
Live in the moment.
Bring your awareness
To the sounds.
Focus on the hear and now.
Rather pain or pleasure
Go into the now.
Bring a loving awareness,
Do not run away
Like staring into the clouds.
Observe from a distance
See, hear, feel.
Awash in your senses
Makes you truly alive.
As the storm subside.
Make sense of what you’ve experienced,
With clarity and wisdom.
Learn to live in the pain
Rather that focus
On it all of the time.
Each day the sun rises and greet the new day,
Yesterday but a memory.
I lay awake for a moment,
Before opening my eyes.
A mood settles in me,
Like the dew on the grass.
Lifting as I become more conscious,
To reveal the cool morning crispness.
How shall I spend the day?
Empty, it is.
Except for the sensations that creep
Into my mind awakening the spirit within.
A morning spent in prayer and appreciation,
For a new day of life.
Lately, it has become difficult to face the frigid air,
My first winter in ten years.
I miss the sunshine of Florida,
The blue skies and waves washing over the beach.
I finish my prayer of appreciation,
And gratitude, vision, and peace.
I venture out into the gray morning,
My senses awash with the crisp morning air.
The wind washes over me,
Like a sheet billowing in the wind flapping between the fibers of my being.
The fresh air,
A sort of newness.
I look to the sky,
Clouds fill my vision.
Like a floating wrapping across the sky,
Keeping everything safely in place.
The winter days have left the trees bare and standing still,
In a state of calm,
I take heed and enjoy the winter of my being,
A-tuned to the nature of the day.
Allowing the cold to settle in my bones,
Strengthening my resolve amidst the cold and barren day.
Afterwards, I retreat into the warmth,
A heart filled with peace and contentment.
We give birth.
Around nine months life comes through us as we willingly become a surrogate mother,
We mothers nourish our child with our breast milk and attend to her every waking need.
Shape the hearts and minds of children.
It was in my first two years of schooling that I acquired the decoding skills that became the building block to a life-time of learning.
Educators shape the future through educing the very essence of children,
providing the environment for the unfolding of a child’s heart in the safe confines of the classroom.
Soon seeds planted mature into mighty oak trees.
Where else does the feminine spirit exude itself?
In the family
as the moral structure
Providing glimpses of fairness and love,
setting the gauge for compassionate interactions in the family.
The Feminine Spirit is a power
Yet, untapped onto itself
It is like the Sun
Illuminating the darkness,
Nourishment to the
Inner Life of the child,
Guiding The Future
Joy and Happiness for the New Year
2017 passed away as time and so the ways of old…
Of suffering; of worry and doubt.
Cast onto the vast ocean of life.
Drifting into the horizon.
If one would need more of the same.
Thus a new beginning.
A time to reflect,
As a way of passing and moving into a New Year of promise and happiness.
Where each and every one has their dreams fulfilled.
A state of mind that acknowledges the 3,000 realms of existence.
Filled with the knowledge I have amassed in a lifetime.
That unravel into a narrative that explains how we are like a tiny universe onto ourself filled with the substance of our dreams.
Like living in a bubble which makes more tiny bubbles that follow our wake, that suddenly burst right in front of our eyes.
Sprinkling tiny soap suds on our faces, across our lips,
We giggle like a child with the sheer joy and happiness of the moment:
We are in the vortex of happiness, wanting to stretch it to eternity.
Because in that moment, it contains all of eternity.
All you have known and experienced, what you are experiencing and the cause you are making for your future.
Be it of absolute Joy & Happiness
Happy New Year
Below the surface of the earth and the heels of man
Lays an underdeveloped seed.
The pressure of holding the weight
Of the earth has crystallized its’ nectar
And hardened its’ outer shell.
Each century a circular pattern emerge and
With a tremendous surge of power
Breaks through into the bright sunshine.
Life on the surface of the earth
Brings strange but familiar feelings
So she lives in quiet contemplation.
The trees, the wind, the rain, the snow
She is a part of nature.
