The Empowered Life

Morning light rises through my bedroom window.  My body sparks with excitement.  Words trickle in.  I know it’s time to run down to the dock on the water and write.  It’s time to get out there and connect with the Divine Succulent Beauty of all that is.

Walking down the ramp to the sea, soft ripples roll across the placid ocean water.  A gentle quietness oozes in the air.  In the distance, a family of ducks take their morning swim.  A fresh set of waves move in from seemingly nowhere, as if a ghostly boat had cruised by, nothing in sight.  The quiet sounds of nature are all that can be heard.  

Highway to Enlightenment

We all have the right to become enlightened, but sometimes we fall very short of it.  Russell Brand even agrees, but I will save that for later.  Being on this miraculous planet for just a nanosecond, it’s obvious there is so much more that goes on beyond our five senses.  Yet, I love my 5 senses; I get to explore the pleasures of the world with them! They have their value, but so does what lies beyond.  If we get disconnected from our source, we run the risk of miss-stepping, being reckless with our emotions, and potentially hurting the ones we love, including ourselves.
