Where is Your Wisdom Today?
Where does your wisdom live today?

In your eyes?
In your knees?
Today there is a part of your body that's wiser than the rest.
Find that place.
And listen and learn.

I Didn't Listen to my Heart Today
Sun, December 9, 2007 | link
I was so busy.
I was so involved.
everything was more important ~ more pressing, and more in reach.
my ego followed every distraction's
bright promise of progress.
my mind leap with every thought.
my hands reached for every bauble.
and I was
immersed in it all,
up to my eyeballs.
now, the sun fades away, and I am empty.
I am tired, although its still early.
I am hungry, though I ate all day.
I am sad, though 'nothing' is quite wrong.
I just didn't listen to my heart today. I just didn't.
I spent the waking day looking away from what's real
~ what's true and beautiful.
perhaps I will sleep more wisely.

The Rhythm of My Life is Mine to Change
Sat, December 1, 2007 | link
Life is lived in a rhythm.
A beautiful rhythm
that is all my own.
Each step I take, each thought I have,
Each and every bite taken and hand shaken.
way I listen, the way I see.
The way I play with the world around me.
The way I pay attention to the world within
I create the rhythm of the life I live.
And the choice is mine, always.
of my heart?
She responds so faithfully to the rhythm I choose.
Is she happy with the rhythm I've choosen today?
Is she vibrantly beating in time?
Or is she tired?
Is she comfortable and content as I live today?
maybe saddened by my choice to choose a pace that doesn't acknowledge her wisdom?
Both stillness and action
are part of my heart's wise plan.
But if I feel out of balance or out of breath,
The job is mine to stop,
to check-in, to listen to my heart and find the pace that is right for all of me today.
The rhythm of my
life is mine to choose and mine to change.
