The Wisdom of Not Knowing

“:Driving home from a temporary job yesterday I was weary and looked forward to arriving home to a friends home where I was house sitting for the week. Then it happened all in an instant.

A brilliant rainbow presented in the sky over the Blue Ridge mountain range entwined with buckets of rain pouring down scattered here and there making driving a bit treacherous. I so wanted….”

Breathing Connection

“When we consider that the cosmos is doing our breathing for us it reflects an unlimited potential for freedom.  The deep interconnection with everything around and beyond us feeds and nourishes our individual and interconnected lives at a level so vast that it is rather mind boggling to me.  Imagine that when you are asleep (and awake!) there is…..”

Living In Time That Simply Is

“In these moments it was as if everything not immediately in the small perimeter of where I sat faded away. The only “time” that existed was now and nothing else mattered. It was like those moments when you find yourself gazing into the face of a beloved. If I was to measure it in human time it was probably only 10 minutes or so, but it felt timeless.
A spaciousness of breath and presence in which I was embraced.”

A Peaceful Heart In A Time of War

“How do we have a peaceful heart and transfer that to others in our every day vastly interconnected life where grief, tears and sorrow are shared….. even though we may be on the other side of the planet from each other ?”

Now You Are Free

“As Spring energy here in the Northern hemisphere is starting to flow, I am drawn back to what had me originally creating the Wildly Free Elder website and community during the first lock down of the pandemic. An inspiration was emerging in me to inspire aging in a more accepting way unique to each individual with no pre-conceived idea of what we are like at any certain set age. Instead to live life fully, and as Jenny says in the video below – ….”

The Peace of Wild Things

“As we age we have the choice to accept and surrender into the “peace of wild things” – a refuge and sanctuary reminding us where we have come from, and what nurtures our heart and soul. It is these very moments where our senses celebrate – the sound of a creek flowing over rocks, flight of a hawk gliding on unseen wind currents…..”

Emotion Is Energy In Motion

“We are taught by our respective cultures, and often our family of origin, not to fall apart. For both women and men. If we are fortunate we are allowed to do so as a child growing up. We are told that our very survival depends on holding it all together, protecting our hearts and not showing the fullness of who we are. But what if that is not true at all?:

The Myth of Perfection

“I first had to delete the word perfection from my vocabulary. Perhaps the better word for realigning myself with spirit is excellence. Maybe excellence was what I was striving to attain all along. Personal excellence also invites us into ongoing relationships in which we express the best of who we are. There is nothing to prove….”

Your Life Breathing

“What I have learned, and keep learning – it often takes repetition! – is that the moments at any stage of life are to be taken one step at a time. Being mindful of the words and thoughts we repeat to ourselves, that often squeeze the joy of simply being into the contracted small containers of judgement – of ourselves and others – worry, anxiety and fear. It seems easy to do these days….”

DAY 19: Wild Divinity

“When “home” resides in the wild divinity of the heart, nestled in the embrace of the natural world, each moment you are aware of serves as an awakening to life. Never separate. Always a part of the whole. The beauty, power and grounding of nature serving as guidance. Whispered into heart, body, mind and soul as a reminder to build inner resilience, acceptance and trust.”
