how beauty sees itself

A person should always offer a prayer of graciousness for the love that has awakened in them. When you feel love for your beloved and his or her love for you, now and again you should offer the warmth of your love as a blessing for those who are damaged and unloved. Send that love out into the world to people who are desperate; to those who are starving; to those who are trapped in prison; in hospitals and all the brutal terrains of bleak and tormented lives. When you send that love out from the bountifulness of your own love, it reaches other people. This love is the deepest power of prayer…… John O’Donohue

hearts listen much better than we can justify otherwise…..sweet listening…..words caressing the heart…..only here, right now……

Being aware is being willing to stay with what is and follow it without expression, holding an attitude of genuine curiosity and open inquiry. The world offers itself to your imagination in every moment. And when we open to what is here, allowing it to stimulate our imagination, we create new worlds that invite others in. Sometimes we have to become aware of our expectations and learn to set them aside. Let your imagination play with the objects of your inquiry, using them metaphorically, wondering what would happen if they were suddenly different than they are…..Oriah Mountain Dreamer

we yield to knowing

What I want to say to you, my dear, is this: Just for today, live the passionate truth of who you are. Stop looking at what is undone, what you haven’t achieved, where you’ve fallen short. Look, instead, into your own full heart. If your journey brings you to a choice between love and fear, choose love. Vulnerability is its own grace and its own gift. Offer it. Be brave enough to be vulnerable. Allow yourself to be seen- dancing, and falling, and failing, and trying again. You are loved, and all that you have to offer is deeply needed. Your own presence is a force for healing. Be present. there is more going on than you know, more guidance and support surrounding you than you can even begin to imagine. Trust it. Your own strong roots are in place- in your own body, in the earth, int eh ongoing story of your life, just as it is. Put your faith in those roots, and allow yourself to go with the flow. Let go and breathe into the goodness that you already are. Move with the current, not against it. Resist nothing. Let life carry you. You have work to do. Begin it…….Katrina Kenison
