Grate Expectations

Sunday, December 28th, 2014

bring-it-all-back---cover-artworkall our expectations of another ever do is set us up for pain and disappointment – and the more we’re emotionally attached, the deeper the cuts, the sharper the jabs, the thinner the skin…

if we keep expecting them to change, what we must expect is to keep hurting [ourselves]. it’s a tricky thing, but not so complex.

our culture is orientated heavily toward immediate gratification, with an emphasis on what’s in it for me? and me first! – essentially a gross imbalance in the idea of entitlement. their uses are varied, and they can be subtle, though nonetheless cumulative in their negative vibe, eroding genuine connection and isolating our hearts.

these notions have no place in healthy relationships. nor does martyrdom, which is the polar opposite, emotionally; the uneasy mismatch of unworthiness and self-sacrifice:

if i can give enough of myself, maybe they’ll change…
if they can give enough of themselves, maybe i’ll change…

when we both give authentically of who we truly are, we’re free to fully, honestly be ourselves.

where there is space for genuine expression, there is harmonious spirit. allow for love’s simplicity to bring heart-centered clarity. challenge the old, painful habits and impulses (ie. jumping to conclusions, assuming the worst first). question the need to complicate communication. breathe into the healing that’s always available at the speed of thought. know you are safe, always.

we are more. we are enough.

love your life,

Bring It All Back

P1000619there’s no apprehension
or holding back
no fear of rejection
or losing track
there’s a trusting
and a knowing
a feeling
not a word
an elegant subscription
from a heartbeat
faces in the rain
remember the song
when two hearts unite
apart for so long
a resonance of kind
borne of love’s simplicity
and stillness of the mind

love your life,

When You Step Into Your Power

P1030453-1when you step into your power
you are a plane at cruising altitude
effortless ease
and joyful attitude
athletic finesse
and even at rest
your beneficence echoes
and resonates
in the hearts
of billions…
the power is energy
the energy is love
the love
is real.

love your life,
