Out Beyond . . .

” Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there. ” Jelaluddin Rumi, Persia, 1207-1273

These 15 words touched my soul deeply when I first read them many, many years ago.  I have them posted on a mirror over my desk, and still, each time I read them, I feel a faint pull somewhere in my energy core, even right now.

The message is clear:   I love you no matter what…

Let’s dispense with judgement.  Let’s forgive and forget.  Let’s live today, now, in this moment, treating each other as we wish to be treated.

I am here, for you.

Choose Peace

We all make choices every day, obvious choices about what to wear, what to eat, who to speak with, what to listen to or pay attention to.

When we learn to be mindful of our thoughts, we learn to choose what we focus on.  When we focus on the now, and being the best that we can be in this moment, we are choosing health and wellness, and we are contributing to global peace.

“Breathing in, I calm my body.

Breathing out, I smile.

Dwelling in the present moment,

I know this is a wonderful moment!”

Thich Nhat Hanh
