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 Different Perspective of Fear!
Fear, the immobilizer
Grips the Mind.
Floods the senses with panic.
Your heart races,
All manners of harm.
You have lost all control.
With an ancestry DNA
Feel the fear
Of long ago.
Which has been passed down
Through your genes.
Like a monkey
Trapped in a corner
He senses danger
Lion is out on the prowl..
Mindfully looking at fear
With a different perspective
Brings a mindful response.
There is nothing good or bad
Makes is so…
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.
Before you have something to give to others,
you must first give to yourself.
A kind of self-acceptance and forgiveness,
Of all the creatures on the earth.
We are fortunate to be a human.
Filled with emotions, feelings
and a thinking mind.
To think of a world
and it manifest before our eyes,
is the greatest gift.
To live in this forever moment,
that extends into the future,
is the way to live that honors the sanctity of life.
Like an iceberg, most of what you are is submerged below the surface.
If you look closer through a clear mirror you will see.
I gaze through the crystal blue lake and see the massive ice chunk under the blue.
If you look only at the surface you will never see the beauty of the inner world.
Under the sea, deep in a cavern below is where exotic creature live.
In the unconscious mind, which is summered inside of you houses the mysteries of the world. Like taking an expedition through the many layers of the earth. To reveal the core. The hot molten lava, churning. A fire burns inside of you like a hunger. You feed it many things, but not what it really wants. This unconscious mind wants you to discover its secrets. Take a look and see the brilliance. Like looking at the night sky. Millions of tiny stars twinkle. All universes onto themselves. You are a micro of the great universe. Stop acting small. Understand every thought, deed and word is held in the unconscious, even the events of the world, which is a collective unconscious. Split apart the large mountain into tiny rocks, look at them under a microscope to determine what they are. You have power to remake your life and the world.
UnderstandinG: A Spiritual Practice
The effortless way, by way of the heart.
How to transcend your conditioning.
People generally believe that the way they view the world is the correct way to see. With awareness you come to understand that each religion, each personal view shows us something else and from different angles so that our development and our understanding becomes Universal.
On the Spiritual Retreat you are guided in a way to let go of the need to be right and the self- righteous mindset of the Ego.
You become aware of the unchanging nature of the self and experience a boundless freedom. Independent of what is going on around you.
You are in the center watching as molecules hover, you stay centered with the knowledge that you are the observer.
As the inner world become grounded, you see from the perspective that we are all the same, wanting life and happiness.
The Psychological Mind
Tries to control life
And how everything should be.
Riding on the wind
Without an anchor
Living life recklessly.
Caught up in the
You tell your self
Deriving life from
Who is this Mind’s servant
Doing and believing
Everything it tells you,
Who is the mind talking to?
The Psychological Mind can intimidate and be a tyrant to the person
But has no influence on
The True Self.
You must transcend
The personal aspect of mind
If you want to be happy and free
Give little importance to
The Psychological Mind
You may ask,
Who will I be?
Enter into the unknown.
It’s like looking through a door.
That has never been opened before.
You step through the opening,
Spread out your fingers
And feel your way through.
There’s nothing there
Except the chilling
Feel of the air.
Take one long breath,
Look back over your shoulder
See the path you’ve taken.
The jagged edges,
A little breath escape, The hair on your arm
Sends an alarm, Your heart begins to race.
You want to turn back, You’ve come much further
Than before, Another step, you stumble
A large tree appears and you grab hold.
And begin to climb,
Practiced all your life.
At the top
The sky begins to clear.
You see which way to go
Out-stretch your arms
Be carried to your destination.
