The Voice of Joy is the Voice of Love

Take my hand.
We will walk.
We will only walk.
We will enjoy our walk
without thinking of arriving anywhere.
Walk peacefully.
Walk happily.
Our walk is a peace walk.
Our walk is a happiness walk.
— Thich Nhat Hanh

A Day of Celebration

Green Tea Butterfly

Today is a day of celebrations and seeking new shores.
When I seek to discover new lands
I know that I will lose sight of the shore
for a very long time.

Only Moments of Wisdom

July 27, 2007

There are no holy places & no holy people.

There are only holy moments & only moments of wisdom

I am looking  for the landmarks that are the moments of wisdom on my journey. There is much movement during a walking meditation as my bare feet connect with the earth and I become grounded. And then there is always laugher and new friendship coming from these moments of wisdom. In these moments of wisdom it is about being able to make conscious choices where nothing is right our wrong simply part of the path even with the bumps and stones I encounter.

The moments of wisdom I encounter come from a deep capacity to receive and be supported in a place that is free from any fear. These moments of wisdom come from my commitment to the self to explore what is possible and be safe as I find our way. These moments of wisdom come to me when I learn to live without fear. These are the holy moments that are all around me when I connect to the earth with my heart.

In the mountain light, all sounds return to silence,
And all that can be heard is a temple bell.

Mountains of Nepal

Sometimes there are rocks and stones on our path
that we must walk around to find our way.

Green Tea Dragonflies

July 25, 2007

Dragonflies are reminders to me that we are light & can reflect the light in powerful ways if I choose to do so. “Let there be light” is the divine prompting to use my creative imagination as a force within my life. Dragonflies help me to see through my illusions and allow my own light to shine in and become a new vision.

Green Tea Dreams

“No matter how high the tree grows
the leaves always return to the root.”

To be able to remain grounded even during these troubled times and follow my path however narrow and bumpy is a true test of how I am learning to walk with love and gentleness.
