One Moment in Time – a meditation with dance music

You have about five and a half minutes to close your eyes, remember, and think about this:

When was yours?
or,
When will it be?

Keep the faith!

An Outline for growing up – Ten things to make you a powerful person

These are short and easy to remember. No great preaching or heartwarming examples required:

  1. Challenge Fear
    Run from what is comfortable. Forget safety. Live where you fear to live. Be notorious!
  2. Be Bold!
    Do not be satisfied with the stories that come before you. Unfold your own myth.
  3. Have Gratitude
    Wear gratitude like a cloak and it will feed your life.
  4. Take Action
    Why should I stay at the bottom of the well when a strong rope is in my hand?
  5. Have Faith
    As you start to walk out on the way, the way will appear.
  6. Embrace Setbacks
    If you are irritated by every rub, how will you ever become polished?
  7. Look Inside
    Your task is not to seek love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
  8. Learn from Suffering
    The wound is the place where the light enters you.
  9. Don’t Be Concerned About What Others Think of You
    I want to sing like the birds sing, not worrying about who hears or what they think.
  10. Do What You Love
    Let yourself be drawn by the stronger pull of that which you love.

That’s it. How you fill in the outline and create your own powerful life is completely up to you.

Keep the faith!

 

 

 

Hot Summer – a meditation in poetry

Steam — summer — steam
cook — August — cook
smoke — night — smoke.

People lie on roofs
talkin’ and pokin’ at the sky
like if you reached high
enough, you’d poke through
and some of that silver light
would wash on down.

People lie on roofs
talkin’ and singin’
sometimes a baby cries,
scared ’cause there’s no ceiling
just this black empty sky
and someone says, “Look,
honey — stars, don’t cry.”

 – Ann Turner (from “Street Talk”)
