Juggling

What is everyday Life
If not a juggling act
Pay attention to the ball
That has reached your hand
Handle it with care
Swiftly move it along
Focus on every moment
As you are done with this one
Another is coming your way
Nonstop, no rest, perfect timing
What is everyday Life
If not a juggling act
One moment after another
Problems looking for solutions
Blockages looking for a clear path
New ideas waiting to be born
So many balls thrown into the air
Catch one and get ready
Another one is moving your way
So focus and prepare
What is everyday Life
If not a juggling act


Juggle, juggle.
it’s Monday!

It Is Possible

“There is no beauty greater than the smile of peace and wisdom glowing on your face.” (Paramahansa Yogananda)


Oh so many worries
Weighting you down
Your relatives’ problems
Your bank account
It is all part of living
So don’t deny the worry
But live with it differently
It is possible to have a concern
And still smile
It is possible to allow
Life to be good
It is possible to be
At peace with contrast
It is possible to know
Joy from inside out
Let your worries be your fuel
Transform them into solutions
Wake up every day knowing
There is always more
There is always more
To dream and to achieve
Because it is possible to be
Smiling with peace
Glowing with wisdom
From within


The Autumn of Your Life

“You can’t hide your true colors as you approach the autumn of your life”.
(Unknown)

The time has come again
To shed all the barriers
All the unnecessary filters
That are diminishing the Light
Whatever you picked up along the way
No need for inventory
Time to look ahead and
Move forward
It’s the autumn of your Life
Love yourself
Shedding
Shedding
Letting Go

“We cling to our point of view, as though everything depended on it.  Yet our opinions have no permanence; like autumn, they gradually pass away.”
(Chuang Tzu)

“Nothing is more fleeting than external form, which withers and alters like the flowers of the field at the appearance of autumn”.
(Umberto Eco)

Truly Wonderful


Children are truly wonderful – here are some quotes that touch on being a kid and letting a kid be a kid…

Kids are… high with Life!

“Young people are in a condition like permanent intoxication, because life is sweet and they are growing.”
(Aristotle)

“Raising children should mean helping them to become what they already are in God’s eyes.”
(Eberhard Arnold)

“If you can give your son or daughter only one gift… Let it be enthusiasm.”
(Bruce Barton)

Children learn more from what you are, than what you teach.”
(W. E. B. Du Bois)

“Do not ask that your kids live up to your expectations. Let your kids be who they are, and your expectations will be in breathless pursuit.”
(Robert Brault)

“Children are our future, and the only way for the world to evolve, as I have been shown it should be, is for each generation to be more loving and compassionate than the one before. This is only possible if we support the children around us, and protect and encourage them so that they don’t need to lock their love away.”
(Lora Byrne)

“The most sophisticated people I know – inside they are all children.”
(Jim Henson)

“Truly wonderful the mind of a child is.”
(Yoda, Start Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones)

Yes, my child, yes
Life is made of openness
Innocent embracing
Hearts wanting to share
The love and joy
They carry inside
If there is one thing
I would like you to do
Is to hold on to that love
Hold on to that joy
And yes, yes, yes
Say yes to Life

 


Every Step


“The best and safest thing is to keep a balance in your life, acknowledge the great powers around us and in us. If you can do that, and live that way, you are really a wise man.” 
(Euripides)

With every step
Balance
With every change
Balance
With every choice
Balance
We are always going
In and out
Of equilibrium
Life is calling
For more
There’s always more
And with every step
Balance

Being Open


“What produces a genuine person is being open to not feeling okay.”
(Pema Chödrön)

From all of our journeys
The one within will take you deeper
To a place of love and fear
Where Being resides
And when we close our eyes
We suddenly realize
We do not want to go
What we may find scares us
Threatens us
All we want is love
But Dear, listen
Become friendly with yourself
Smile at fear
Welcome your pain
Feel your way in
And all the sudden
You have found a peace
An acceptance
A genuine feeling
That trumps all others
It is Life itself
Embracing you
All of you
