You can choose to perceive things differently.
You can focus on what’s wrong in your life
or you can focus on what’s right.

Stillness

TODAY

Today I’m flying low and I’m
not saying a word.
I’m letting all the voodoos of ambition sleep.

The world goes on as it must.
the bees in the garden rumbling a little,
the fish leaping, the gnats getting eaten.
And so forth.

But I’m taking the day off.
Quiet as a feather.
I hardly move though really I’m traveling
a terrific distance.

Stillness.  One of the doors
into the temple.

Learning to be still,
to really be still and let life happen –
that stillness becomes radiance.

The art of being still – something we must learn.  Practice, practice, practice.

we have a choice everyday regarding
the attitude we will embrace that day.

Stop every now and then.
Just stop and enjoy.
Take a deep breath.
Relax and take in the abundance of life.

Keep your eyes open to your mercies.
The man who forgets to be thankful
has fallen asleep.

All it takes is a short neighborhood walk with my ‘girls’ on a stunning autumn day to open my eyes to my mercies and find peace.

Have a beautiful and peaceful Thursday.  Keep your eyes open.
