Stepping Out











Stepping into self,

Stepping out of suffering.

Stepping into darkness,

Stepping into Light.

Stepping into a void,

Unleashing unlimited potentiality.

Stepping out of self, allowing shadow to lead. Just for a moment so its medicine shared with our soul. No longer following, no longer leading…we are walking hand in hand with our shadow and our own shining light. We are whole…Ani Po

A Thousand Lifetimes in a Single Breath

We can relive our past over and over, remaining in grip-hold of fear and anger or we can assert our own willingness to seek out the past, its triggers of present day and move on from a place of despair. Not easy and often painful, but may be just what is needed to paint a brighter day.

Our aloneness comes from a place of our willingness to stand facing our own self. As we sit with self, others unwillingness to face their own fear shines brighter as they scatter or lack the understanding of what we know as reality.

Is it their lack of compassion or merely we do not know how to vocalize what we seek to convey in this place in time? Are we over-analyzing this adventure? Or are we just unable to let go of our thoughts of yesterday?

It takes courage to sit quietly with a thousand lifetimes of reality, broken, broken by thoughts of others brazenness.

Our thoughts are created by self infliction and infliction of others and their lifetimes of realities. Until it is too painful to follow the ways of past realities. We sit, we stand…in our own courage to face the pain of self, of others, community and generations of pain. We take a breath.

Breathing in a lifetimes of pain, breathing out and letting it all go. In a single breath our story has changed. A story of ownership, courage and healing. We are the hurt, the infliction or projection onto others and we are the healed. Choosing to let go of a thousand lifetimes, we shift to a gentle brushstroke of peace within, love for all the lifetimes and understanding where we came from.

On a physical lifetime it is easy to trace where we came from. Mentally, it may take a bit of courage to recount, patience to relive and determination to get to the root cause of our reality. Spiritually, we are who are and we choose to let that shine from this day forward.

Stepping into the Canvas with a thousand lifetimes in a single breath. Clarity of what was, we step forward in what will be, choosing to be that which we most desire…
