#peace
if its uncomfortable to sit in silence, learn to embrace whatever it is you're feeling and you'll soon discover you no longer need the distractions you once sought.  it can help to go for a quiet walk in nature or begin practicing a form of meditation where you continually bring your focus back to your breathe (or a mantra) whenever your attention wanders.

on a very short walk today, i noticed a tree that i didn't think was there before.  perhaps being more relaxed (after a nice long, quiet drive by the closed beaches) and in the present moment, it simply felt differently.  or perhaps as i had felt a shift earlier today, i had stepped into an alternate timeline or reality where the tree now existed.  as we learn to work through and shift what is happening in consciousness, things will shift in this physical reality.  in actuality, reality is much more fluid than it is solid, and both big and small things can change effortlessly when we surrender into the presence.  if we let go of our attachment to things being a certain way, the more dream-like our experience of life can become.  it is only in holding onto certain viewpoints or emotional charges that we solidify reality.

the more we live in the present moment, the more profound (or simply calm) experiences we will have (and as these integrate, they will become a part of our natural everyday experience). remember to take time each day to relax and simply sit in the present moment.  doing this as the first thing in the morning (and just before bed) can be very helpful.  if any feeling arises that prevents you from feeling completely calm or present, then sit with that feeling.  by not running from it (and not looking for some distraction), the unpleasant feeling can be fully experienced and dissolve (and then you'll discover a natural peace and bliss that arises). the more you stay in the stillness, the deeper this natural calm becomes.  soon you'll see that this peace fills you much more fully than any external distraction could ever do, and as you learn to live your life from this place, you will find that the underlying peace becomes permanent or easily accessible (and circumstances that may have previously been chaotic or difficult no longer bother you, and you're able to navigate through life with grace and ease).

now is our time to collectively awaken, to remember and realize our true nature as the dreamer of this dream. use any free time you have to spend quietly in meditation or feeling whatever is there internally. the more of us that do this inner work, the more quickly all of humanity will awaken (and the sooner a more beautiful new world will unfold in this dream of life).

remember, especially in times of fear and chaos, that our perception makes all the difference, and our emotions can greatly alter what we see. if you’re feeling stuck, overwhelmed, uncertain, worried, or anything else, take some time to sit with whatever you’re feeling. it may be difficult at first, though once you let go of any resistance, you’ll begin to work through it, and that uneasy feeling will soon dissolve. meditating, embracing whatever you’re feeling, or a quiet walk in nature can help you return to a place of calm and peace. from there, you can clearly see and know all will be okay.

this is truly a lesson in listening to one's intuition. when I was driving over here, it was cloudy and I didn't know if I'd even see the sun set. when I arrived and walked out to the water, it was absolutely gorgeous, visually and in feeling and weather. this is like heaven on earth

when one learns to fully surrender into the present moment, one realizes there is a divine perfection beneath all of the chaos.  from this place, a deep sense of gratitude for being alive to experience it all may arise.

[it seems that the more one (or humanity as a whole) chooses to constantly be living from the mind (and its need to constantly be doing something), the stronger the divine call to relax, just be, and live from the heart becomes.  take this time, right now, to stop any activity (or distractions) and to simply be still & fully embrace anything you are feeling in this very moment.]

the most important thing anyone can do right now is to step out of any fear and panic, and step into a place of peace and calm.  meditation or a quiet walk in nature can be quite healing.  if there are any strong emotional feelings arising, learn to love them, embrace them, and let go of any resistance towards them (as you quietly sit with them and feel them), so that they may be fully experienced and permanently dissolved.  when you are able to return to a natural state of silence and peace, spend some time to sit quietly and envision the beautiful new world you want to see.  do this regularly, at least once a day.  give much more attention, energy, and time to imagining and feeling what you want to see unfold in the world, rather than constantly looking for media updates of (the often negative news of) what's happening.

what a beautiful evening it was tonight at the flowering heart center in clearwater. there was a smaller group yet the blessings were powerful. i really felt my heart open while receiving one. it was nice to briefly share my experience afterwards and tell her it was powerful. it's funny, i had wanted to tell her though was putting the chairs away and then she happened to come by and help with the chairs, and i was able to naturally and effortlessly share what i had wanted to, and she seemed to appreciate it. it was nice to make a little connection. it was nice seeing everyone chatting afterwards too. the community feels more like home and family as i open my heart, and it's really beautiful.
i had thought earlier of stopping to take some shots along the road on the way home though wasn't quite feeling it. i felt more inspired to create this photo with a wider view of the sky and trees rather than the busy road.
