Whew! Finally, I come here to post my post for today. I've been busy over here working on a couple of brand new things...things that are definitely pushing the limit of what is comfortable, things I'm feeling a little hesitant (but mostly very excited) to share with you.
Let me explain a little.... I keep hearing about people feeling anxious, depressed, stressed (I am not excluding myself here) and I wanted to share something that would be calming, soothing, that would help bring people back to that quiet, empowered center place. Yesterday, I really wanted to post a short audio of a meditation that I came across a while ago. I spent a lot of time attempting to copy the audio here but it kept not working and I kept trying and it kept not working.
So, after spending a little too much time on this, with frustration levels rising (the irony is not escaping me), I had a thought (that I've had before about other things)...the thought was, why don't you just do your own meditation? Why continue to look for it out there when you can just do your own? I sat with this thought last night and decided that I really wanted to record a meditation for you. Rather than creating my very own (I'm not feeling quite brave enough to do that yet), I recorded me reading one of my favorite ever meditations, written by Tama Kieves. I hope you like it as much as I do.
The funny thing is, right about the time I decided to do this, a dear woman friend of mine emailed me to tell me that it was her birthday and, as a birthday gift, she wants to hear me read one of my poems. So, below the meditation (scroll way down) you'll see there is another audio (just a little over two minutes long) of me reading my poetry...this is definitely a brand new thing, I think I'm liking this new layer. Kari, thank you for planting the seed, I hope you enjoy it! Happy Birthday!
I'd love to hear your thoughts....
Today, I so hope that you are intensely, softly aware of the power of your true self. And that you remember that the moon you are looking for is right there inside you. Really, it is.
Lots and lots of love,
