Committment { c.1390, from L. committere “to bring together,” from com- “together, in combination or union’” + mittere “to put,” “to send or let go.”} ~~~ Commitment to self opens the pathway to freedom. Once one is committed all hesitancy ceases – resistance is obsolete and one can push further into their destiny towards who they are – where they are going – what they want – in freedom. ~~~ Let’s dispel a few myths – commitment is not about giving something up, being forced into something, losing personal freedom, an obligation or duty, a noose around the neck, a ball and chain … or something we have to do. Together in union we morally and emotionally engage - that is commitment. Commitment is about union, a joining together of an equitable nature. It is about bringing together agreements, which we choose to honour through duty and obligation. And we do so through...

rumi quote
"Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing, there is a field. I'll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about. Ideas, language, even the phrase 'each other' doesn't make any sense." – Rumi I have a penchant for quotes by Rumi and this one is no exception. A master of words, Rumi strings words together into poetic revelations which embrace metaphor and elevates our thoughts beyond the prosaic to the heights of higher consciousness. "Meet me in the field¬and let our weary achy-ness take restupon the petals-the blades of grass;and as we stare out towards the heavens ... clouds shifting-our consciousness will merge beyond that of the limitedand peace will permeate the life-drenched spacesand we will be as onein the fieldbeyond right and wrongbeyond ideas and languagebeyond you ... beyond me-meet me in the field."DKBates...

Thank you Ram Dass, you led me to ponder and I thought to myself: 'What if I was a tree, how would I treat me? I would love me, nourish me with water, I would appreciate me, I would not compare me to other trees, I would see how unique I was, I would not judge me - for why would I have need to judge? I would spend time in nature, simply sitting (standing of course as I am a tree :-) ) I would give shelter to those in need ’neath or within my protective limbs, I would grow tall towards the light, I would bend with the seasons, I would allow myself to simply be without having to be what other 'trees' wanted me to be. I would be me.' I guess it's time for me to be as a tree....

"To be kind ... is to be compassionate, is to be forgiving, is to be non-judgmental, is to be silent, is to be a listener, is to be a receiver, is to be gentle, is to be appreciative, is to be non-argumentative, is to be passive yet courageous, is to be giving, is to be selfless without diminishing self - to be kind is to be the container for love."

Humility is a natural state of being. It is what happens when the ego gets out of the way. Humility allows compassion, hope, trust , unconditional love and faith to play their role.. When we are in the state of humility we hear our inner voice. It is from here that we can align ourselves to our spirit… and connect with life. It is through the state of humility that the ego can do what it is meant to do.  Humility and ego are friends not foes, together they take the high road and together they allow us to become who we are desinted to become… achieve what we have dreamed of and live the life we are  meant to live… with humanity and love....

  A Child'S Song ~ by Sobonfu Some  There is a tribe in Africa where the birth date of a child is counted not from when they were born, nor from when they are conceived but from the day that the child was a thought in its mother’s mind. And when a woman decides that she will have a child, she goes off and sits under a tree, by herself, and she listens until she can hear the song of the child that wants to come. And after she’s heard the song of this child, she comes back to the man who will be the child’s father, and teaches it to him. And then, when they make love to physically conceive the child, some of that time they sing the song of the child, as a way to invite it. And then, when the mother is pregnant, the mother teaches...

give recieve
  When we give and receive equally … as a fair and equitable exchange - we create balance and equilibrium flows – it is a law of physics and a principle of nature.  Giving and receiving equitably equates to fulfillment for all and when we have the goal of fulfillment for all, we are operating from the principle of balance and equilibrium and by virtue of, this creates the perfect marriage of humanness which resonates far out into the cosmos and boomerangs right back into our own ‘backyard’. IS there a greater act of love? It is not about giving to receive i.e. I will do/give/be this (which is to give) so they will like/give/have me (which is to receive) … It is about giving to give and receiving to receive. When we give to give and receive to receive we generate a natural flow which has the power to...

coyote-at-dawn-300x194
  I remember a hundred lovely lakes, and recall the fragrant breath of pine and fir and cedar and poplar trees. The trail has strung upon it, as upon a thread of silk, opalescent dawns and saffron sunsets. It has given me blessed release from care and worry and the troubled thinking of our modern day. It has been a return to the primitive and the peaceful. Whenever the pressure of our complex city life thins my blood and benumbs my brain, I seek relief in the trail; and when I hear the coyote wailing to the yellow dawn, my cares fall from me - I am happy.  ~Hamlin Garland, McClure's, February 1899...
