Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

"If you ever suffer from insomnia, walk barefoot on the grass for ten minutes before getting into bed. Nature has a marvelous way of healing many maladies. Anytime in your life when you're feeling out of sorts in any way, go to nature and find your peace."

Pooh Wisdom

"What day is it?' asked Pooh. "It's today," squeaked Piglet. "My favorite day," said Pooh.

Morning

My morning prayer- to be joyful for this day.  Blessed to be awake so early by my puppy, to see my life at daybreak, to read, to pray, to write all of this- my aliveness flows through me. 

Reminder

 Nonviolence mens avoiding not only external physical violence, but also internal violence of spirit.  You not only refuse to shoot a man, but you refuse to hate him.  -Martin Luther King Jr.

Gratitude

Thank you for all the participants in the "Language of the Psyche: Using Sandtray Approaches in the Arena" workshop.  I feel honored to have shared a space with you all.  My body and heart also feel grateful that there are so many of you working in such a deep and respectful way with clients and horses.

 

The more deeply we listen

 
“The more deeply we listen, the more we attune ourselves to the roots of suffering and the means to help alleviate it.... the very act of listening can dissolve distance between us and others as well.”
by June Cerza Kolf
 

 

Like a wheel within a wheel

 
“Like a wheel within a wheel, our lives are lived within the whole of life itself- all revolving around and related to a central hub. It is the gravity of the center that attracts electrons to a nucleus and people to a community center, while the pull of our own center urges us to connect with our core.”
(Cunningham)
 

The soul is not in the body

 
The soul is not in the body;
The body is in the soul.

-Hildegard von Bingen


 

The Heart of Understanding

 
In Thich Nhat Hanh’s,  The Heart of Understanding.  He says that “Understanding is like water flowing in a stream.   Wisdom and knowledge are solid and can block our understanding.  In Buddhism knowledge is regarded as an obstacle for understanding.  If we take something to be the truth, we may cling to it so much that even if the truth comes and knocks at our door, we won’t want to let it in.”

 

When I think about how unconditional love

When I think about how unconditional love feels in my heart and my body, I am reminded of a quote from Pearl Bailey that says “I see their souls, and I hold them in my hand, and because I love them, they weigh nothing.”
