I Imagine Poem

As I sit here, I imagine the vapors of my breath drifting up into the infinite ocean of the sky painting it with the tears of my sorrows. I imagine going a day without contracting or contorting my body to make it any less “big” than it is. A time, even a moment, where I allowed myself to take up as much space as I desired. I Imagine what it would feel like to feel vibrant, healthy, unrestricted, and pain-free, in my body. And what it would be like to love myself, I mean really love myself. The kind of love in which every cell of my being thunderously proclaims you are beautiful and loved just as you are. And, … Read More

The Ponderings of Impermanence

As I gaze up the sky pulsates with breath. The clouds are like the air, invisible forces of vitality weaving patterns of ageless wisdom, of life itself. The clouds speak to me of change, of the dance between form and formless, and experience. You will never be the same person again.

In our hurriedness to evade the penetrating sensation of what may disturb a once unchanged landscape, we miss the moment, the only moment that has ever existed and will deign to exist ever again. The moment where we realize that there is no separation between that which you perceive as your ’self’ and … Read More

The Path of the Heart

It is within the chaos we lose ourselves, but the lantern that casts a soft cascading glow within the darkest hours of the night is the transparency of our willingness to expose our humanness. I want to see you, feel you, share your tears of pain, joy, love, and laughter dispelling any illusion that we are anything but one. Yet, in those moments of stillness when the sweetness of our breath kisses each other, I want to celebrate the unique creation that is you and you alone; as the teacher, lover, enemy, perpetrator, friend, dear fellow traveler on the path of life, that you are. In whatever way your reflection chooses to dance within the inner mirror of our beings, … Read More
