Musings From a Clear Heart

Happiness doesn't interest me. What I really want is a deep peace in my life, the kind that comes from living my greatest life.

A clean house doesn't interest me. I want a welcoming and relaxing home where the goal isn't a perfect environment, but rather an inviting gathering place for those I love the most.

I'm not interested in a loving relationship. What I want is a deep soul connection, a bond beyond this world. A knowing in my bones that I am cherished and adored. A passion that grows and expands to hold both of us for an eternity.

I don't want a successful business. What I really want is the opportunity to work with my greatest potential to craft an awesome lifestyle, and work with what I love each day.

Financial stability doesn't really interest me. What I really want is to risk my financial livelihood on what I love. To break my feelings of inadequacy and embrace the best part of myself, and to believe that I am worth that much.

The appearance of a person doesn't interest me. The condition of your heart interests me. So many of the people I meet are heartsick. I'm interested in exchanging a little light in our lives with whatever time we have together.

I'm not interested in the cliche. What I really want is to be true to my deepest heart and experience that reality in my everyday life.

Meditation on Creative Growth

Insecurity is the only way to grow, to face danger is the only way to grow, to accept the challenge of the unknown is the only way to grow. Adventure is a quality that can come into your life anywhere. Whenever you move into the new and unknown with the trusting spirit of a child, innocent, open, and vulnerable, even the smallest things in life can become the greatest adventures.

The relief and expansiveness you will feel once you have put aside all the dithering thoughts that are preventing you from acting now will make you wonder why you ever waited so long. Never postpone for tomorrow. Make up your mind. Embrace all that you are and have been and grow the wings to fly. Be courageous enough to take responsibility for who you are and live your truth. You are ready for the fresh and the new. Something wonderful is just on the horizon and you have just the right sense of clarity to welcome it with open arms.

See life as non-serious and the burden in your heart disappears, becoming weightless and lifting you in flight to the open sky. Whether you are beginning something new and need inspiration right now, or you've just finished something and want to rest, go to your Source. There is a vast reservoir of energy available to each of us and we tap into it not by thinking or planning, but by getting grounded, centered, and silent.

The experience of creativity is an entry in to the mysterious. It makes no difference what form that takes. Be open to what wants to be expressed though you. Do everything you do joyfully, and lovingly.
