Until the Age of Aquarius dawns (with peace to guide the planets and love to steer the stars) . . .

Until we come together (to smile on our brother and love one another) . . .

We can use ALL the healing energy we can get.

Here’s a healing mantra to calm your spirit and soothe your soul:

Aah . . . that’s better!

This performance by members of the University of Washington Symphony Orchestra  illustrates why Mozart is my favorite classical composer:

Mozart: Serenata notturna, K.239

Oh, did I mention that my nephew is 3rd from the right playing viola?

Yup, that’s him!

Aah . . . that’s awesome!

After reading Ally Bean’s latest post . . . and the comments (thanks, shore acres!) . . . I resurrected the Classic Editor.  HUZZAH!

I am a happy camper.

 

If Classic Editor remains available, maybe I’ll find some blog worthy material to share on a more regular basis.

I am also happy that Hurricane Elsa didn’t ruffle many feathers around here.  A few tree limbs down, and leaves strewn around, but no significant damage.

Aah . . . that’s better!

Like a Mandala

We must let go of the past

As it emerges

How caught up are you in your story? How much time do you spend defending your reputation with others? Are you ready to let it all go?

Come into the present and Just Be. Notice the underlying feeling of pleasure that saturates the palette of your mind.

It has nothing to do with your story. It is unaffected by your reputation.

It doesn’t come from somewhere and it can’t go anywhere. It exists outside time and space.

It is always there and will never leave you. It is eternal.

When you let go of all thoughts and mindfully observe . . . you’ll catch a glimpse of this very subtle sensation of joy.

Aah . . . that’s bliss!

Healing is not linear.

It is what it is.

You are enough.

Be patient with yourself.

Progress is better than perfection.

Nothing in nature blooms all year.

Grow your dreams like flowers . . . dirt and all.

Aah . . . that’s better!
