Put Down The Phone – Breathe In

Once again – effortlessly – you breathe. Like you do every day. Now, imagine the clean air entering your lungs. That automatic yet unique breath is integrated into your blood. The agent of integration is the service provided by the alveoli.

The air of your inhale could be the gritty, carbonated exhaust of a transport truck. Or the air flavoured by a bone shaking thunder storm. Or the air fragranced by a beautiful autumn morning as the leaves just pass into the realm of decomposition, releasing a haunting fermented gas that encapsulates the summation of summer and a preparation for what’s to come.

Passing though the lungs that ruby red, freshly oxygenated blood is drawn to the heart where it is pumped throughout your body. The blood circulates up into your brain, fuels your organs, reaches into your limbs. This constantly rejuvenating process brings whats new and removes what has been carbonated. 
This is an amazing natural process happening everyday all day with accuracy and punctuality according to your body’s need. It makes it possible to run for the bus, walk to the store, dance with your wife.  You think about whether there will be a seat available on the bus, what you are going to buy at the store and your dance steps. You don’t think about oxygenating your blood.

However you can think about what message you want to accompany the oxygen as it travels in your body? 
Your message can be you embracing the moment, and inhaling the feeling of well being you want to attract. Your message can be a more specific quality like compassion or persistence.  It is the energy that our mind connects to when you focus on the idea of persistence that will fill your aura. That energy will permeate anything that absorbs energy if your focus has stamina.


Focus on your next breath; inhale the idea of service. 

Breathe in through your nose … and be clear that you want service in your life. That service is a quality you want to radiate. Service is a quality that resonates with your blood cells. After being created in the marrow of your bones they pass into your bloodstream. The cells merge with all the other cells on the mission. The mission is your well being. Each cell is a new recruit in the battalion of your blood ready and willing to be of service. 
Blood cells live a number of months. Compared to your blood cells you are immortal. And their purpose is exactly that: your immortality.

There is a heritage of knowledge passed on from’old’ cells to the fresh ones. The brand newest of cells are reasserting your well being and ready to receive the human ancestral wisdom that you subscribe to. Recognize the alignment of millions upon millions of cells that uphold your human facilities so you can become a university of thoughts, insights and mental projections. Breathe in service so it too gets magically synthesized with the oxygen into your blood. Imagine those blood cells pumped around your body – radiating service.

Prayer To The Nature Spirits

The snow is falling as you would expect on an early Saturday morning – with beautiful confidence but in no hurry.  The temperature was around zero and the sun was coming up on the other side of the lake so my dreamy snowflakes won’t last long.  The lake felt pretty dam cold if you put your hand in there.  The air was so clean I couldn’t even find a smell.  The night was still intact along the pebble beach.  A few pieces of plastic and water-ground glass.  Even a few embers glowed in the smoky bonfire from the night before.

From nature we get refreshed and refilled with energy and clarity of vision.

Breathing in  … we welcome into our lives, into our body, nature.  So, with wonder, we want to be friends with you –  the nature spirits.  So, nature spirits, a message   …

Your loyalty to yourself and service to planet Earth is admirable.   Elusive to my mind is how your brilliance happens but my soul knows that accompanying you spirits, in the moment, will grace me, anyone, with your residue.

The clean way of your work is a theatre of the future overflowing with enthusiasm into today.

The gentleness of your attendance to all of us, the variety of persons we are, is appreciated. Picture: The old oak leaning over the path; the littlest rapids bubbling over the rapids in the creek; the wind’s choreographing the canopy dance of maple and elm trunks with birch and spruce branches; the fragrant minerals of mud absorbing fallen autumn leaves – We love how your agility to anchor yourself in any part of nature without judgement enhances wherever you anchor.

Nature … is the melody of the planet’s song.  The fairies, gnomes, salamanders, sparks and sparkles of light quick, quickly are the libretto.  We feel your harmony of this song in the moment, in the place: the lapping waves on the short pebble beach, the creaking tree limbs loving the yoga of gusty winds; or, inside the minute magnificence of ongoing photosynthesis putting to use the energy of the day.
