"and the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." -- anais nin
books that have shaped my philosophies:
1. conversations with god (book 1 of 3), neale donald walsh
2. the celestine prophecy, james redfield
3. by the river piedra, i sat down and wept, paulo coehlo
4. believing in love, elizabeth hess stamper
5. many lives, many masters, dr. brian weiss
6. the power of now (excerpts from), eckart tolle
the pursuit of knowledge and the courage to move forward within my own thinking has resulted in a rich yet contemplative existence. my mom would always quote "the unexamined life is not worth living"...plato, from the apology, i do believe. :)
enjoy this stunning day-- smile at yourself in the mirror at least once, and then smile at someone you do not know!

there are those gorgeous moments of total clarity...of which I am so grateful. the answers arrive, from those situations that I allow to cause me so much pain, when I take things so personally, and yet...you can't. You can (take things personally...) if you want to cause yourself great pain, but the pain is illusion.
TRUTH IS ONLY BREATH & BREATH IS PURE PRESENCE. bliss, joy and clarity are within the moment: available right NOW. (now, now, now...)
this week, I have been reminded & revealed so many incredible insights...into men, into these people & situations that once hurt me so, yet I let go, and I RELEASE & clarity & peace is bestowed.
THIS IS YOU. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR NOT ALLOWING ME TO HIDE FROM MYSELF ANY LONGER.
be & breath.
