Stretching ourselves, growing ourselves is hard work. But I am seeing the reward – the insight “I am the only thing in my way.” The lyrics in this song soothe my soul. May they sooth your soul, too.
“Breath, baby breath, until all is calm…you are the wind, the flood and the flame.”
I love the juxtaposition of symphony and silliness in this video. May your day be filled with smiles and creativity.
Oh my gosh, my heart and soul danced with delight while I watched this. Just feel into it –
Every atom in your body
Came from a star that exploded
You are all star dust
From a star that exploded (Neil Degrasse Tyson)
Imagine if we all re-membered our beginnings as stardust, if we all could connect with that divine spark from over 14 Billion years ago, if we could see the magnificance of the universe contained within each of us. Imagine.

This afternoon, anger washed over me, and it has been seeping through my cells as I read about our government’s latest decisions to weaken the Federal Environmental Assessment Act as well as the Fisheries Act. (The Fisheries Act, states very clearly that “no person shall carry out any work or undertaking that results in the harmful alteration, disruption or destruction of fish habitat.” But the Conservataive government wants to change the Act to make it legal to destroy waterways provided that it does not “result in an adverse effect on a fish of economic, cultural or ecological value.” Arghhh…..
My heart is breaking.
Thankfully, I came across this video, which aims ” to help its audience relax, engaging the sacred, feel the power of the Occupy Movement, and release that which no longer serves, clearing an inner path to envision and create an inclusive, equitable, and peaceful world.”
Watching and meditating on the video, I am reminded that I can use this pain, this anger, this deep hurt, as an opportunity to dive into love, to dive into the truth. I am called to strengthen my practice, to stand with and for life, to remember that nothing, absolutely nothing is what it seems.
Spring is here, consciousness is rising – I wonder what flowers will blossom.
My body is till buzzing from watching this video posted by an Israeli couple. In it Ronny Endry says:
“To the Iranian people, To all the fathers, mothers, children, brothers and sisters, For there to be a war between us, first we must be afraid of each other, we must hate. I’m not afraid of you, I don’t hate you. I don t even know you. No Iranian ever did me no harm.”
This call for peace has initiated conversations between Israelis and Iranians, and sparked support from around the world. It has sparked hope in my heart and fire in my soul.

Goosebumps and chills washed over me as I watched this video. Change is happening, and happening quickly. In response to the severe cuts to social services, a citizen-based movement in Greece is acting to create a new social economic reality.

After starting the day with ease and grace, I fell into overwhelm when I began to reflect on all the tasks that need to be done. Bits of paper to be collected ordered, totalled (yes, it’s tax time), files to be backed up, photos to be uploaded. Life moved from unity and flow to fragmentation and fluster within one or two breaths.
Then, as so often happens, this video found me, and I returned to my heart, my centre, my breath.
May you connect with the Breath that Breaths as You as you move through your day.
