Remembering How to Be

“If you ever find yourself empty from something you cannot know or name, find a stretch of ocean, a field, or mountainside, or even clouds or trees. Because there are 1,000 simple ways to fill your tired soul so you can remember how to be, how to see, and most importantly, how to breathe.”

A Glorious Greeting

“How glorious a greeting the sun gives the mountains.”

-John Muir

Our new year is a gift of 365 mornings resplendent in fresh beginnings and the possibility for sweet reflective endings.  Here’s to giving each one of these days as glorious a greeting as the sun gives the mountains, with abundant gratitude from sunrise to sunset.

Happiest of New Years!!  May it be brimming with Radiant Health, Adventure, Love, Learning, Deepening, Blessings, Unexpected Gifts and a Peaceful Heart, infused with nature, animals, family and friends!!

“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.”

-Marcus Aurelius

Sun Through the Trees

“I like to walk alone on country paths,
rice plants and wild grasses on both sides,
putting each foot down on the earth
in mindfulness, knowing
that I walk on the wondrous earth.
In such moments, existence is a miraculous
and mysterious reality.
People usually consider walking on water
or in thin air a miracle.
But I think the real miracle
is not to walk either on water or in thin air,
but to walk on earth.
Every day we are engaged in a miracle
which we don’t even recognize:
a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves,
the black, curious eyes of a child–
our own two eyes.
All is a miracle.”
~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Time

“How to stop time:  kiss.

How to travel in time:  read.

How to escape time:  music.

How to feel time:  write.

How to release time: breathe.”

*author unknown

Ah, yes just breathe…. and all time and eternity are yours.

How to be absorbed by time – stay in the moment, and notice everything.  Be there with and in time, as one moment moves to another….
