DAY 10: Presence of Being

“If you’re going through a painful time in your life, know that it is never worthless. These tough times teach you to see possibilities that you would never have fathomed in the comfortable moments.”

DAY 6: Rest & Solitude

“Placing attention on the present moment is a practice we seem to be more adept at as we age, yet still get frantically captured in mainstream madness and old life force depleting patterns of “doing” and “wanting to belong. It is when we finally come to rest in the solitude of our own making that we are still enough to breathe fully.”

DAY 3: A Breath of Good News

“Today, like every morning, my hit of “good news” via The Good News Network, arrived in my inbox. To start the day learning about and being exposed to positive actions, innovations and inspiring stories sets the tone of the day for me. The website, with its archive of 21,000 positive news stories from around the globe, confirms what people already know—that good news itself is not in short supply.”

Love Much, Think Less

“At times we are faced with challenges where the energies of love and gratitude seem a million miles away. Thinking takes over contracting us within a cage of our own creation. Yet, I am aware more and more that love is always right here surrounding every living being and every conscious action – even the act of breathing in and out which is intricately interwoven with all life. What if we saw within each and every challenge….”

Embodied Transitions

“Shifts and transitions are continually happening even if we don’t pay attention – within and without. Energy constantly shape shifting bringing magic and tragedy, delight and sadness, awe and forgetfulness. Are we paying attention, or lost in the mundane mainstream detailed oriented life we actually have never felt at “home” within.”….

Nature’s Medicine

“Oom (uncle) Johannes is known by many names: herb doctor, healer, story teller, and teacher. Although he is already 95 years old, he still dedicates his time and energy to walking the lands near his home in search of healing herbs. For Johannes, nature is medicine to the soul and can be used in many ways to aid healing.”

You Only Die Once, But You Live Every Day

“Have you ever thought about quality of life moments versus years lived? For some it is when death touches us that we allow ourselves to contemplate, and come closer to, the relationship with our own potential death and that of our loved ones. The unique choices we will make when embodied time is drawing to a close…..”

Elemental Musings

“Elemental Musings” offers daily postings, for an undetermined amount of time, by a nature lover and elder in transition in the Blue Ridge Mountain area of North Western N. Carolina. “Sunday moments where a brilliant butterfly skims over the surface of the nearby creek where I am seated on a stone bench, whose cool surface permeates up through my body delivering stone energy that has been around much longer than I have.”…..

An Authentic Unsettled Life

Living an authentic unsettled life. “We are constantly given opportunities to be lead by curiosity, take risks, and steward the emergence of our own unique expression, artistry and imagination.”

On BEing

“So from that, I was able to deduce that the world showed up for me according to who I was BEing –and not purely from what I was DOing. My way of BEing was the underlying driver of my communication with the world. And what made even more of an impression was that my conversations, my emotions and my body could change–in any given moment. We are never too old to make these kind of changes!”
