On Emptiness

10404431_10153200824112457_1880405283210018270_n

Becoming empty
To rediscover anew
The joy of filling.

There is medicine in emptying ourselves and to embark on the path of refilling.

We’re sometimes afraid of letting go, fearing that we’ll be abandoning ourselves. However emptying ourselves, instead gives us the opportunity of beginning fresh and to begin the search again. To find once more the things that really light our inner fire, the things that make us feel the most alive without clinging to stale concepts and ideas that no longer serve us.

From fullness to emptiness to fullness once more. We are cycles. Always beginning again.

A Full Moon Prayer

On the cusp of one season ending, another beginning, Earth teach me to continuously keep my Heart Open to the movement within cycles. ‪

{We are seasons}

“Earth teach me stillness
as the grasses are stilled with light.
Earth teach me suffering
as old stones suffer with memory.
Earth teach me humility
as blossoms are humble with beginning.
Earth teach me caring
as the mother who secures her young.
Earth teach me courage
as the tree which stands alone.
Earth teach me limitation
as the ant which crawls on the ground.
Earth teach me freedom
as the eagle which soars in the sky.
Earth teach me resignation
as the leaves which die in the fall.
Earth teach me regeneration
as the seed which rises in the spring.
Earth teach me to forget myself
as melted snow forgets its life.
Earth teach me to remember kindness
as dry fields weep with rain.”
~ Ute Prayer

Headstand Musings – Day 338 of 365 Picture A Day

Change your perspective, flip it upside down. During my morning meditation, I took this quite literally. The destination isn’t a place but a new way of seeing things.

Pour yourself like a fountain.
Flow into the knowledge that what you are seeking
Finishes often at the start, and, with ending, begins.
~ Rainer Maria Rilke

Nothing ever really ends, only begins again.
