Week 22 – The Wisdom Of Silence

A quick note before I go.

No need to get into lengthy explanations now. Keep it brief. Maybe some anecdotes. A few thoughts. The experience is everything. Talking about it, is not “It”.

I remember, years ago, in the winter of 2006-07. I was composing some music at the Leighton Artists Colony, at the Banff Centre For The Arts in the amazing Canadian Rockies. Something happened there. A good thing. I remember taking the shuttle from Calgary Airport to Banff National Park. A 2-hour trip. I was the only passenger. The driver lectured about the history of the area, the First Nations. He used to be a tour guide. Slowly, I saw the mountains growing bigger… and my heart melted. I wanted to cry. It felt like coming home. And I had been away too long.

Week 19 – And It’s Glowing With Love

Like A Crisp Day In Spring

Like A Crisp Day In Spring

Today was such an amazing day… So full of bright light and vibrant energy. In the midst of these hectic times, I notice myself relaxing. I am calmer. More grounded, more connected to the Universal Juice… I trust more. It’s all gonna be okay. If this is the last day of my life, why be fearful of what’s coming… There’s only this very moment to cherish. And it’s glowing with love…

I had a nice quiet early sit this morning. Then cooked up some fresh ginger tea, a strong brew with turmeric, coriander, fennel, cumin, and some mint leaves. Good habits… Woke up my son for school. Flashed through a stack of index cards. Continue reading

Week 18 – It’s Time To Die My Friend

Finding JoeI’ve been following the compass much more than the clock these past few days… I liked it. Or was it procrastination ? I don’t think so. Procrastination feels different. It smells different. Weak. Uneasy. Fishy. This, on the contrary, felt exciting… Something was cooking , and I held back, waiting for the perfect moment to take it off the fire.

I’ve been struggling with my Definite Major Purpose for quite a while now, thinking it over many times, turning it upside down, looking at it from different angles. But I have not been able to put my finger on the soar spot… I’ve been wanting so much to get in touch with my deepest inner core. Wanting to get a clear picture of what I really need to do with my life. Not in a distant future, but right now, pronto, as soon as Continue reading

Week 16 – Tuning Into Loving Kindness…

Great Quote - BuddhaI absolutely love the subject of Kindness… What a brilliant idea to take time this week (and forever if you ask me…!) to notice and observe kindness in our Outer and Inner Worlds… Tuning into the substance of Loving Kindness in the Outer World… Observing random acts of kindness as a reflection of our inner being…. The outer kindnesses playing the strings of our inner source, amplifying the outer world’s sweetness… With every turn of my head … more and more wonderful occurrences, at every moment of the day… Continue reading

Week 8 – Crawl. Walk. Run… Fly !

Come on, you can do it.

Yes, you.

I’ve always been amazed to see toddlers’ attempts to evolve from a crawling condition to walking and beyond. Sometimes I wonder if they even consider giving up at times ? I’m pretty sure they don’t. I don’t think it’s not even an option for them. Their brain is not even wired that way. I imagine they see others do it – effortlessly – so obviously they are convinced they can do it too. It makes total sense. And they keep trying, keep digging in, till the job is done. With lots of falling, many many times, hurting themselves, feeling the pain… Cry for a moment, get some encouragement (or not, it doesn’t really matter that much), and then try again – till the job is Continue reading
