Blessings, Everyone!

Today, I consciously commit to changing what I can by being more generous with Love and Compassion. I will give Love and Compassion away to each encounter. I will generouly Forgive more and deeper. I will generously Praise more and louder. I will generously be more Peace. Today, I will look longer into each person's eyes and be a loving non-judgement witness to their Soul's journey. Today, I will generously offer myself in more "seva" to family, friends, collegues, strangers, neighbors, to the world. Today, is the day the Generosity Revolution begins. May it be contagious and infectous! My we all catch it! And So It Is!

One Spirit Daily Practice Sacred Reading and Meditation

"Joy does not simply happen to us. We have to choose joy and keep choosing it every day."  - Henri Nouwen 

Today, I choose Joy. I choose Joy in every breath, every moment, every step, every encounter. I... choose... Joy. I breathe in.....JOY! I breathe out....JOY! In...JOY! Out...JOY! I Am JOY!!! And as I repeat this simple, yet, powerfilled meditation 10 times, I experience the results immediately - JOY! All of my cells and molecules, every organ, ever ounce of me resonates and illuminates JOY! JOY! Unspeakable Joy! My dance is JOY. My words ring with JOY. My silence speaks JOY. JOY! As my practice today, I will extend an invitation and blessing for each person, situation, and encounter to be filled with Joy. To all of you, "Have a Joy-filled day! May Joy blanket you as you continue to grow through challenges. May Joy fill and overflow your hearts and cause you to smile radiating more Joy out into the world." JOY!! And So It Is!!

One Spirit Daily Practice - Aug. 7, 2014

"How wonderful to discover that couched in every experience of fear we find our next invitation to fly!" Judy Cannato - "Reflections on Receiving the Sacred Universe Award"

As I step into the known and unknown of this day, I will do so with my eyes wide open. I will see my fears and doubts, smile at them, and then with an open heart of compassion, I will bow to them in honor for they serve me well. I acknowledge that their presence reminds me that they are but a choice. I thank them for their invitation to fly. Today, as I step into the known and unknown, I will breathe deep, open my eyes....and fly. Filled with Gratitude, I... choose...! And So It Is

"But after we mourn our losses, and if we can shrug them off and see them as a necessary part of maturation, we can truly be free. We can shed the shackles of our fears and anxieties and just be."
                                                                                The Daily Buddha
It has taken me several years, countless tears, and deep transforming quiet to finally "let go" of the losses - loved ones, jobs, close relationships, ideas and beliefs, illnesses, self-dislike and a few others.  I can truly say there is a freedom that comes that allows me to "just be."  In this space I am discovering the core and heart of me.  And I like it!  I cannot say who or what I would have become had I not chosen to "let go" emotionally, spiritually, physically, and psychologically.  I can say how grateful I am for choosing to as my Mother still whispers in my ear, "Let go and then, let God."  And So It Is.
