Centrifuge

In the middle of a storm is an eye which brings reprise from violent weather.
In the middle of an eye are pieces which help you see.
In the middle of yourself is the perceiver;
the ultimate 'I' that sets you free.

Stillness, Creation, and Annihilation


Stillness, creation, annihilation, stillness ... over and over. A cosmic cycle reflected in daily life. The ancient forest dwellers of the Indus Valley understood this better than us. ● Within deep stillness is a source of life and light;  a  "quantum stillness" singing a silent song, waiting for a hearing. Listen, listen, listen to your heart's song. ● You're here now. Stay a while.

A Secret of LIfe


A Secret of Life is that Life is eternal (when seen beyond the ego), but always moving toward aging and death when ego clouds our view. Therefore, see with ego-less eyes! With ego-less eyes we are blind to the boundaries between us. 
The ego, however, hangs on to "little life"; and may convince us of our near total separation from one another. Don't believe it. The eye of the needle may be small, but big mind can surrender into "big Life" - and it becomes mystically clear that "all is one".

To My Daughter

There is so much in this world to learn and your daddy is growing too. You will bring out the best in me as I will help you do. I will teach you the best I can in awe of how little that I knew. When you have gotten older and no longer need my hand, when you are no longer crawling but using your own two feet to stand, I will give you room to grow as you play with buckets in the sand.

On your first day of preschool sweetheart, while I am happy, I might still cry.

So if you see tears in daddies eyes while glancing back to blow a kiss, know that you have not made me cry it's just that baby I will miss.

I love you,

- Dad

Baby steps

Fifty years can go in a flash while some days last forever.
I can learn to find my spirit with my heart and soul together. 

Spirit resides within. It can't be broken, though worn thin. 
Before life flashes before my eyes, my journey will begin.

Sometimes, the biggest gift you can give to a person is silence.

Buddha ~ Thinking, Attracting, and Creating


What you think,
you become.

What you feel
you attract.

What you imagine
you create.

Along The Way

Then, begin again

New Beginnings


New Beginnings
are often
disguised as
painful endings.

First Aid

Let meditation be like an ice pack for a swelling mind. When your mind inflames and begins to cause you pain begin to meditate. It wont stop the cause but will help in healing the wound. Let go of your thoughts, let the swelling go down.
