“You must ask for what you really want…”
Life is amazing when you begin to ask. Life begins to happen. That life is happening brings trust that we will be heard. Being heard means asking for more. Asking for more brings abundance. Abundance builds and grows in other areas and soon we can have a life that is full of what we have been asking for.
Don’t go back to sleep…

Thanks to Harry Faddis for the art and to Rumi for the poem and to all of the seekers who have carried this image with them, that I might have the honour to share.

Today is a day of Generating new elements of my life…

This came across LOUD and CLEAR this morning! Thanks to FR for posting and thanks to the author and creator.

This is your LIFE. Do what you love and do it often.

“If you don’t like something, CHANGE it. If you don’t like you job, QUIT. If you don’t have enough time, STOP watching TV.

“If you are looking for the LOVE of your life, STOP. They will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you LOVE.

“STOP over analyzing, LIFE IS SIMPLE. All emotions are beautiful when you EAT, appreciate every last BITE.

Open your MIND, ARMS and HEART to new things and people. We are united in our differences. Ask the next person you see, what their passion is and share your inspiring dream with them.

TRAVEL often; getting lost will help you find yourself. Some opportunities only come once, SEIZE them.

LIFE is about the people we meet, and the things we create with them so GO OUT and START CREATING.

LIFE IS SHORT. Live your dream and WEAR your PASSION.”

There is a sweet and delicious curiousity that is present today.

The weekend is fast approaching. Another Body Electric workshop and there will be men from far and near. I am always curious about who will show up. This curiousity builds in me and augments and amplifies my energy. There is a sweetness that has developed over the years as I have held the space for men to come together and explore on levels that are often taboo and or held so closely as to be inscrutable. My curiousity expands and grows over the weekend as these taboo subjects of sex and sexuality are opened up. My curiousity expands and grows over the weekend as that which is inscrutable becomes clear and manifests some new meaning.

Today I will be infused with curiousity and the sweet pleasure of preparing the nest.

Hope ~ the Mantra for Today

Today I will be hopeful and remain in the expansive quality that opens in me when I am filled with Hope.

Hope to Return - Rome ~ December 2009

Emerging from the test on Friday. Today is Monday and I feel like I just woke up after a long sleep. All went well. I am curious to see where this flows to next.

My heart is open and clear. My heart leaps with JOY!

In Blackwater Woods

by Mary Oliver
Look, the trees
are turning
their own bodies
into pillars of light,
are giving off the rich
fragrance of cinnamon
and fulfillment,

the long tapers
of cattails
are bursting and floating away over
the blue shoulders

of the ponds,
and every pond,
no matter what its
name is, is

nameless now.
Every year
I have ever learned

in my lifetime
leads back to this: the fires
and the black river of loss
whose other side

is salvation,
whose meaning
none of us will ever know.
To live in this world

you must be able
to do three things:
to love what is mortal;
to hold it

against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go,
to let it go.

Reading today.

Preparing for a diagnostic surgery tomorrow. I am preparing for what will happen tomorrow and creating some time over the weekend for recovery.

I am reading, “The Velvet Rage: Overcoming the Pain of Growing Up Gay in a Straight Man’s World”. Having read a few pages I have an inkling now that this read is going to be a valuable and informative journey. My first response… “I wish … that man who was my primary teacher and trainer while I was training to become a counsellor had read this… Perhaps he would have been more empathetic as a gay man working with other gay men…”

This is going to be a delightful ride, a ride and a read and a rest that I am looking forward to. I am sure this book will take my mind off of the fear and wondering about the surgical procedure taking place tomorrow, I have this thought that this read will sooth me and help me rejuvenate.

Today I will be happy and joyful and in the pleasure of being me… AS PINK AS THAT IS!

Furry PINK DICKS on my rampant Glads ❤

Rest has transformed the way I feel.

Yesterday I took care of many small detailed elements that were stressing me.

Today I feel well rested after a deep and undisturbed sleep. Last night was the first night in many that I felt no pain in the middle of the night. To wake up after a night of rest was delightful.

I feel energized and enriched by rest.

Today I will take care of a few more pieces, I will allow for the tranquility to flow. I will savour the delight of feeling rested and rejuvenated and unafraid.

GLAD for REST ~ September 2011

Glads are a delight! ❤

“If you never did you should. These things are fun and fun is good” ~ Dr. Seuss

Today is all about doing, preparing, planning and letting go. Doing some of the things, taking care of some of the stuff that I have little practice with. By all of this I mean that today I must enlist help. I must ask those around me to help me. Some of this asking is simply for a thought, with some a big deed.  Asking has always been a challenge for me.

Today I will trust and ask. I will seek the help that I need to move ahead. I will take care of myself and in this self-care take care of the world and the loved ones around me.  ❤
