★★Creating my sanctuary

“Simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.

Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of being.

Patient with both friends and enemies,
you accord with the way things are.

Compassionate toward yourself,
you reconcile all beings in the world.”
-Lao Tzu-

Don't try to forgive.
Forgiveness is not a 'doing'.

Simply accept that this moment is exactly the way it is right now.
And the past was the way it was.

Accept your non-acceptance in the present.
Forgive your inability to forgive.
Feel your breath, the sensations in your body, the life that burns brightly in you.

Everyone is doing their best, even when it seems like they are doing their worst.
Everyone is dreaming or having a nightmare, battling with pain you may never understand.
You don't have to condone their actions.
You may not be able to wake them up.
You don't have to like what happened.

Simply let go of the illusion
that it could have been any different.
You are different now, anyhow.
Don't focus on something 
you have no control over.
The past is a distant land.

Bring your attention back to this moment,
Your source of true power. 
Your place of connectedness.

Wake up from the dream
That anyone has any power
To take away your inner peace.

Drop the need to be right.
Embrace the need to be free.
Come out of the story of 'my life'.
Reclaim the moment.

Be here, in your new life.
Show up for this brand new day.

This is forgiveness.

- Jeff Foster

"How many years of beauty do I have left?
she asks me.
How many more do you want?
Here. Here is 34. Here is 50.

When you are 80 years old
and your beauty rises in ways
your cells cannot even imagine now
and your wild bones grow luminous and
ripe, having carried the weight
of a passionate life.

When your hair is aflame
with winter
and you have decades of
learning and leaving and loving
sewn into
the corners of your eyes
and your children come home
to find their own history
in your face.

When you know what it feels like to fail
and have gained the
to rise and rise and rise again.

When you can make your tea
on a quiet and ridiculously lonely afternoon
and still have a song in your heart
Queen owl wings beating
beneath the cotton of your sweater.

Because your beauty began there
beneath the sweater and the skin,

This is when I will take you
into my arms and coo
you’ve come so far.

I see you.
Your beauty is breathtaking."

Slowing down doesn’t necessarily mean meditating. Slowing down means paying more attention to the space in your life – inside and out. It means not running off to the movie theatre or becoming a zombie in front of the TV whenever you have free time. Do something more natural to slow down: Take time to rock in a rocking chair or sit in the garden and look at the lilies.

Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening.

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Robert Frost.

The Butterfly Effect - beautiful


Image may contain: flower and plant


Make a loving home within yourself.
One that feels beautiful to dwell in when all else falls away.
Kiss the dark corners, clear out the clutter and nourish each part of you with love and care.
If your flesh home has been left to become a haunted, deserted place, through self neglect; your mind may become frightened of the voices and feelings that come from it, you may begin to avoid contact with your heart and discredit your gut.
Times and spaces with softness, compassion, openness and no busyness may bring up a panic that makes you go and gorge on distractions, anything but to face the haunted, crumbled down house within.
Yet deep in you, you know that hiding from yourself is no longer serving you. This home, the one in your very centre, is waiting for you to come back, so it can teach you how to become an alchemist, how to realise your strength, your beauty and your power. This home is wanting to hold the weight of you, not the ghost of you, so it can carry you and guide you.
So it can be your holder your safety, your home.
