holding true……

DSC09740editededited

When panic really clears her pipes,
singing loud and off-key
her anxious songs beside me,
I don’t have to change my tune.
I can hold my notes
and keep belting out my song,
keeping true to this heart
that is mine to follow.

Funny how there is more creative energy
in peace
than there is in panic,
more juice
to get loose from the noose
when we keep breathing and smiling and still.

Our song is our birthright
and it flows truest on a river of peace,
peace that is fierce
and powerful
and ours for the choosing.

 ” There is little in our lives we cannot do better
if we are peaceful.  Few situations – no matter how greatly they appear
to demand it -can be bettered by us going berserk.”
(grin)

“We don’t have to forfeit our peace.  It doesn’t help. We have the same facts and resources available to us when we’re peaceful that are available to us when we’re frantic and chaotic.”

-Melody Beattie

  3. I like this: My song is my birth right.
    This brings me back to the good in meditation, being at peace inside, using our inner guidance. Yes, I am back to meditating and liking it. Wishing you a beautoful day, Jennifer!

  4. Jennifer you sound so at peace and happy singing your song again…when I saw the wolf I had to smile…it is a symbol of the teacher….and how appropriate.

  6. “I can hold my notes

    Those words really spoke to me this morning!

  7. I so am in tune with your same feelings in this Jen. I understand with my heart exactly where you are, because something is lifting a blanket of sorts off of a piece of the real me that I didn’t even realize was hidden. That something is God , I’m sure who has waited on me to lift it off with my own hands, knowing that I had to do it myself and feel it myself to make it permanent and true. I am so happy for you and this freeing journey you are on. You have such a precious heart Jen. I am soooooo thankful for you.

    Hugs of Love,
    Lee Ann

  8. You are so right, and I’m experiencing this right now, too. Hang in there, and stick with peace!

  9. Singing your own song is so difficult but you inspire me to do so.
    Thank you

  10. Oh my, you are hitting on subjects that touch my heart, Jennifer. This post is full of wisdom I need badly, and so eloquently expressed, it reaches me with more impact than if I were to find it elsewhere. This month of daily thoughts is a real gift to your readers, as well as to yourself. Thank you. xo

  11. Time to rethink my tremble and find me, too. Beautiful. You have such a full, deep and thoughtful heart.
