Thank you for joining me today..I am so glad you chose to visit!
I’m going to introduce perhaps a foreign concept to you.
Love, Life, may be–I believe *should be*– peace filled and easy…
So many are familiar with “making it work”..but the key is when I allow for natural unfolding, when I allow my heart to be open to the moment as it is presented to me, when I release expectation or obligation..then…my Truth is that my Love, my Life is peace filled and easy…Sure, I clear space, I address my fear, I heal wounds, but it is not a struggle; rather, it is a joy because I am doing so in a place of peace and ease..
It is my choice then to embrace peace and ease..each and every moment..for I believe out of peace arises all else. If I am less than peace filled, I am not allowing my heart to be open to anything fully…and if I am struggling I cannot be at peace..So I choose peace and ease..natural unfolding..
Here is a little snippet for you as an example: But, first, please put your sugar blinders on..it’s about to get saccharin sweet *grin*
My friends have begun to call me “Moonbeam” which makes me smile inside and grin broadly outside..
As you know, I live on the sailboat with my two young children..Each night I go to sleep, the moonbeams shine down my mast through my front hatch into the area I sleep..I like to say regardless of what the day has held, I sleep under the moonbeams..I feel I am literally wrapped in Light and Love..
I also recently began bringing my djembe drum to play in drum circles. I had to learn to find my own beat and share it confidently in order to play in the circle. What I experience within the circle is magical..when my heart overflows, my beat matches; when I am feeling quiet, my beat matches; my beat is my heart for all to hear…Others play, many watch…some even dance..but my experience is that it is *me and my drum* (heart) and I choose how to interact with it.. sometimes I play within the group, sometimes I am called out solo..sometimes I observe and let my heart take it all in..*magical*..Yet my most magnificent times are when I bring my drum to the beach and play under the night sky..the moonbeams shine down and again I am wrapped in Light and Love.
I feel the same about the sunshine, about the ocean, about the hills, about birds, about flowers..about all that nature shares with me..When I take the time to turn my mind off and allow my senses to lead, my life is much like a carefully produced and directed Disney movie..I open the front hatch in the morning to violins and then butterflies and glitter appear..the sun shines in, que the music.. I step out and the local birds deliver a flower wreath to my doorstep, a daisy to my hand..and on and on…
Perhaps I’ve exaggerated to show you, but it’s truly like that…I open the hatch to the morning sunshine, my heart overflows..I climb the steps to the cockpit to look out at the harbor, the boats, the hills, the water, the flowers, my heart overflows..I step off the boat and walk down the dock, notice the birds, my neighbors, the harbor seals, the shape of the clouds, my heart overflows..it truly is *that* magical….
When I allow my heart to be open to the day as it is presented, I am full of glorious praise for each and every thing around me. I see radiant Beauty, brilliant Light. My senses heighten and I am Aware of the fragrance of the ocean, flowers, the wind..I am Aware of All in my space..I am Aware of Love in everything..
Perhaps you may think this is too dreamlike to be real..But it is so very real. It is my life when I choose to live according to my Truth. In those moments I feel completely Aware..time slows down and I feel as if everything was purposefully placed for my pleasure, to delight my senses, to allow my heart to open, to guide me to Awareness. So, I live my life in a way that those moments are my moments, the majority of my moments..because I truly believe this is Heaven on Earth..and I am in Paradise.
When you are a direct part of my life, I honor the way that you live. You may choose to act however you wish. However, I only invest my energy in peace filled. You may be grumpy, you may even throw a tantrum, and I shall accept that as long as you acknowledge you are grumpy and throwing a tantrum, when you are done, we shall interact..I do not preach, nor cajole..I just live as I know how. I stop to smell the flowers, I point out the shape of the clouds, I smile when I am joy filled, I clap my hands in delight at a song I love or any such gift that is presented to me, I dance a few steps because there is music..Those directly in my life whether at home, at work, involved in sailing..they all know that is me…my life is a “Disney life” and I love when you join me to play within it..When you have been around me long enough, you will even find that *you* begin to point out the flower, the shape of the clouds, you smile because you are happy, you probably won’t clap your hands in delight, but I bet you dance a few steps because there is music..
In a comment on a previous post, Megan said she felt such a peaceful easy feeling..and I replied perhaps that is the motto for my life when I allow my heart to be open, my senses to lead..There is an absence of struggle of resistance of exhaustion…
Some of my favorite lifetime moments are those that I am either alone or sharing space with another in nature..nothing grandiose, nothing splashy..just sharing space..not trying to do or achieve or impress, or even talk..just “be-ing”. Grand! The children and I excel at it and I love when friends are comfortable enough in their own skin to join us..
And that reminds me of my favorite Eagles song..”Peaceful, Easy Feeling”…I love to sit in the cockpit and ‘survey my harbor’ as I listen…I love to think of all whom I interact with in such a peaceful, easy manner..Beauty filled, peace filled moments interwoven into my personal tapestry….except I’m not ‘standing on the ground’ I’m soaring..and I hope you join me:)
May you allow your heart to be open,
A peaceful easy feeling….
A peaceful easy life,
A peace filled, easy love.
May you be so comfortable in your own skin,
That you may just “be” in a moment..
Not having to speak, to impress, to achieve,
Able to *be* who you are in the moment
As it is presented to you.
May your life be so full of peace filled, easy moments
That you release struggle and exhaustion…
That you are able to open your heart
To receive abundance
May you be Aware
You are Loved Beyond Measure,
And life, love, is meant to be
peace filled and easy..
