Whenever I feel down, defeated, overcome and depressed, all I have to do is look at these photos! Two friends and I attended a “sweat” this past Saturday at the New Dawn Foundation in New Rochelle, NY; and as we mounted the entrance steps what greeted us but a message from Mother Nature about never giving up…about how the seemingly impossible can and does occur. Not only did this brave little warrior of a plant coming up from a crack in the wall not give up its quest to reach the light from its home deep in the darkness below concrete steps, it had the bodacious audacity to blossom in its victory! I was caught without my camera but my friend, Patricia Bolivar, came to the rescue with her smart phone! Does this photo not lift your heart?

What I Heard Today While Sitting…Breathing…Waiting…Listening…

the secret of health, wealth and longevity:

when

Life

brings an end to

a

job

a

relationship

a

dream

   etc...

   LET IT GO…

stop trying to resuscitate that which is

  DEAD

release the

PAST

   and move on

none

of

   it…

not one moment of the entire

77

years

of

it

was ever about

the

writing

or

the

   doing...

it was

 always…

in

all

  ways…

solely

about the

   being...

about the

experience

itself…

the

    pain…   

to fully

feel

   grief...

   sadness...

to let it

wash

through

   me

leaving me

   cleansed

   purified

In Other Words…

the

question

is the

key

that

opens

the

   door…

once the question has been asked

the questioner must remain

   silent and alert…

so as not to miss the opportunity...

   once the door swings open…

to enter a heretofore

   dark…

   hidden…

   unexplored…

room

of

the

   mansion…

a room filled to capacity with

un-imagined

treasures…

Since I Now Know…

that the

answer

is contained

within the

   question…

   I simply

ask…

   lean back…

   relax…

and say

YES

to the

      LETTING GO ENERGY…
