Old Shows

A great and fun thing to do late at night is to watch a show you did many years ago, a classic.  You can find many movies but I am talking about a normal television show.  You can get many of them on dvd or on digital download now.  The beauty of it is NO COMMERCIAL, that is one of the reasons I don't watch television now.  We recently began watching old episodes of Seinfeld and have been laughing at all the wonderful characters in this sitcom.  Maybe Seinfeld isn't your bag but there are plenty of wonderful entertaining shows out there.  Pick something and watch a show here or there, without the commercials the shows are a lot shorter and easier to watch.  Now I am going to watch Kramer slide into Jerry's apartment.

A Friend's Love

A Friend’s Love
The rain drops
Plop, plop, plop
The fire sizzles and hisses
With each drop of rain

The wind blows
Breathing life into the fire
My foot stamps frantically
Trying to put it out

Suddenly a friend
Touches my shoulder
And stands in the fire
By my side, smiling

No longer is there need
To stamp out the fire
Its life energy is a teacher
And, I, the student

Walk through the fire
Whether in darkness
Or brilliance
Be in awe of the flame

The smoke may thicken
My destination be obscured
If I am too afraid
I know I can reach for my friend’s hand

Exiting the fire
Relief washes my body
Until I see all around me
Infinite fires – big and small

With a smile
And an open heart
I look for my dear friend
Only to see now he walks through fire

The tides have turned
The moon is new
The leaves have fallen
The season has changed

With love and compassion
I enter the fire
And touch my dear friend’s shoulder
It is my turn, to gently hold space

Just Lie Down - Get Grounded

We all need to feel grounded and centred. We all too easily can lose our balance. It is not possible to constantly stay perfectly balanced, but here is a simple way to regain some of your balance. Find five minutes in your schedule (or one or two if that is all you can spare) and lie flat on your back with your arms at your sides. And, just breathe ... in and out...take your time with each breath. Doing this throughout your day can have amazing changes upon your body and within your soul.

Great Time of Year for Singing

One of the best things about the holiday season is the singing.  Christmas carols are a great way that people come together and sing.  However if you don't celebrate Christmas that doesn't mean you have to shy away from enjoying the singing during this time of year.  Find songs that fit your lifestyle and let sing them out loud.  Go out and go caroling it is a great way for friends to get together and spread joy and peace in your neighborhood.
