To Be Calm and Still

2014-05-02-15-59-37

To be calm inside is to feel the stillness even when the winds blow or the sun glows.

Kerri-Elizabeth

In the calmness of my heart the river of love flows.

In the calmness of my mind the sunshine glows.

In the stillness of my body, I feel the whisper of the wind.

In the gap between now and then I feel the moment I’m in again.

In the flow of the day I can say, no one will ruin what I feel today.

In the worry of yesterday, I lose my today.

In the plans of tomorrow I can say, those things may change on the way.

I used to spend my day figuring out everyone else’s way.

Then someone said to me, “how many hours do spend a day, helping others find their way?”

I love to help others along the way, especially my children; they have been my reason for each day.

Now I can teach them, that we can only give what we have, making sure I gain what I want to give is first my responsibility while I live.

Complaining about what you don’t have is only time spent away from decisions you must have.

Waiting for someone else to lead your way is letting go of yourself and the only way that ultimately gives you freedom in your day.

Make a stance for your own life and expect there will others that will stomp there feet to the beat of their own defeat.

Your energy goes where your thoughts go, what you think of most grows the most.

Are your thoughts where you want growth or are they where you want change the most?

Sunshine on your day!

Awareness Is Awareness and explains Awareness

download

Awareness and “I” are one chord in the orchestra that never misses a beat and holds strong through defeat, It will meet you where you are and never go far, it is there to see and will always “Be”, turn up your sound and you will hear, the song inside is “I am” not “you and me”.

Kerri Elizabeth

As my soul awakens and my body and mind join in song with my soul, I hear every note of my own orchestras beat.

When there are no others I am aware of my space, when there is no sound I can hear my heart race.

Awareness is when others are there and you still are just as aware.

When the windows shutter from the winter wind and the raindrops fall over and over again, I am aware to spare a moment is to leave awareness unfolded.

When I am aware of my inner flow, beauty has an outer glow.

To release “me” to “I” gives insight inside for “me” to go away and “I” to reside.

When awareness is, “I” and not, “you” and “me”, then the darkness of the day and restless nights , pass through your light, without a shadow left insight.

Think about this moment now, are you aware of “I” or aware of the darkness that “me” is addicted to inside?

What are you aware of now?

When awareness is there to bare, there is no place for darkness there.

When darkness is your “I” as awareness when your world is the stipulations of the storms in life, then your life becomes a storm of stipulations and strife, not an awareness of “I” but ownership of something that should be free to pass by.

Controlling a storm, holding the trees still, catching every leaf, barreling every rain drop, damming every river and lake so not to flood or make a mistake, is an addiction to tuning out the notes of your own voice and owning someone else’s choice.

When the storms can pass and leaves can fall, when the rivers flow and lakes become full, when the ocean roars and the sea births more, when “I” and awareness are one chord, the orchestra inside is born.

When witnessing “I” and not “me”, when awareness is awareness with a capital “I”.

When every feeling can pass through you as it is not, “I”, it is life’s song and is not meant to be owned but appreciated as a lesson passing by.

 Like the storms of creation, love them and learn from them and you can ask why, the answer will still never be, “I”, it is meant to be an addition to life, learn and listen to the song of life without drowning out your  “I”.

 I am an orchestra of my own awareness.

Sunshining my awareness!

Love IS and Always IS

2015-06-10 18.50.54-1

Love IS, without asking or denying, love is in the creation of life that never waivers on judgement or prejudices, it exists as it is, beyond your expectation.

Kerri Elizabeth

Love is more.

Love is the sun shining brightly and revealing color.

Love is the whisper of a tree in the wind, bending and bowing to the call of nature.

Love is the ripples on a lake, sending an electric charge of wonder without any expectation of your delight.

Love is the pine cone that drops to the ground to blanket the earth without cost to add warmth and offer new growth.

Love is in the rain that drops its presence in the mood and intensity it chooses without needing permission or discipline.

Love is in the rivers that flow through the lands showing purpose without a thought.

Love is in the stars and moon that need no arranging or fixing and offering an arrangement full of magical wonder and  imagination.

Love is the clouds that bring moisture and covering to the earth, never hearing from the sun,” can you go away or stop being what you were made to be”.

Love is in the depth of the ocean that holds an abundance of energy and life and surrounds it with landscape much like the arms of a  father or mother’s protection, giving it boundaries and support without defining it as separate or the same, large or small, fierce or passive.

Love is in the air that generously continues without ever needing approval, it just is.

Love is in the sea breeze that partners with exhilaration and offers us an opportunity to feel it or deny it and is never controlled by our presence, it just is.

Love is in the storms that create change and rearrange our surroundings, often perceived as destroying and challenging our perceptions of loss, life, material and emotional attachments, our strengths and our weaknesses without fear of rejection.

Love is in the mountains so brilliantly placed for purpose and intent, offering us the opportunity to climb, explore, reflect, grow, learn, rest, recover, feel excursion, build strength and create new thoughts, inviting us with its presence, never forcing or expecting you to see it.

Love is in the creation of life not in the judgement or expectations, success or failures, feelings or thoughts, ideas or perceptions, objections or compliments.

 Love is before, during and after anything is attached or detached, love is more than, love is and everything else is our own idea, changing, wavering, doubting, withholding, giving, receiving, rejecting, objecting, defence and judgement labelled good or bad or otherwise.

Love is always with no beginning or end, it IS.

Contemplate the depth of Sunshine that never stops shining just because you choose to.

Let It Flow To Grow

wpid-img_03051.jpg

The streams flow is beyond what the eye sees, touch the legacy of the purpose it shows.

Kerri Elizabeth

Calmness and serenity play hide and seek with the ever amazing beat of my heart.

A feeling that has become one with a thought flowing smoothly like a stream over mossy rocks.

There is no sense or doubt it has a beginning or an end, it has become one with my soul at every bend.

As my soul awakens and my mind becomes more aware, the beat of my heart starts to invite truth or dare without the rush of terror there.

The mere awakening the stream never stops and the moss will never die in the exchange of life and the purpose it holds, opens up a mystery to unfold.

The stream does not lead the moss’s direction or tell it to stay or to grow, nor does it carry the responsibility of the moss’s flow.

The stream of emotions that flow, connect with a thought we often deny we know.

The visual and the sound we hear are part of the stream and flow in continuing to grow.

When seeing beyond the streams flow to the purpose it has there for us to let go, then we gain the freedom of heart and soul.

We live forever in the lessons we leave, in the love we show, in the path we clear for others to go.

It is not me or the stream that is the purpose of life, it is the life of the stream in you and me that leave the legacy for all to make a choice to see.

It is purely and purposely the flow of the stream that leave a legacy for more life to begin.

See beyond the words and the eye into the purpose of life and the depth our soul wants to fly.

The stream does not stop flowing when you enter into its knowing, a streams legacy of flowing is part of the purpose in knowing.

Shining sunshine without a shadow on courageously seeing beyond the eye to the source that gave us life.

The Wind Passes Up Ownership and Attachment And Continues To Flow

 2015-06-21 16.55.11

When experiences can pass through like the winds, the wave, the storms and the falling of the leaves from the trees you  allow the molding and changing of life’s purpose now and let go of the attachment of yesterday.

Kerri Elizabeth

In the acceptance of all an ocean exists with life.

Waves roll in, they subtlety and often fiercely mold the shore and the shore never resists but instead rejoices and invites the beauty of change and forgiveness.

Sodium, invisible to the eye becomes one with the water perfectly, like cells to your body.

The shoreline so ready and inviting to the wave accepts and recovers as they are one in a partnership to life.

The tree rocks in the wind never asking the wind not to blow but instead is a partnership in the existence of what” is”, bending and often breaking, repairing and strengthening for its purpose.

Leaves fall and the tree still stands.

 New growth now has room to sprout and grow.

 New color drops onto the canvas of life without asking or demanding, without fear or fault, without judgement or jealousy, it just “is”.

When anger or pain blow in like a storm or even a subtle breeze,

 when hurt or suffering roll in like a wave,

 when rainfall comes and drips a beautiful reminder we can be transparent and uncovered,

when leaves fall and give room to new growth and remind us to let go,

when the contrast of color in the fall inspires change and remind us life’s journey is a canvas of color not  an eraser of courage and strength,

when the sunshine becomes a reminder, no shadow can exist on its surface and you are light,

when the night reminds you there is a time of stillness and calmness and it takes the place of fear and loneliness,

when a word of any kind takes flight like a bird flying south and there are not attachments to its belonging,

when a person’s actions become part of a play in the choice of theatres you choose to invest to take a seat in,

when you notice the tree is always a tree with ever changing shape and color,

when you notice the waves are always waves with always changing shape and size,

when you notice rain can come in many intensities,

when you feel the sun’s heat the closer you arrive,

When you’re aware and conscious you live.

Sunshine exists without a shadow.

Missing a Heartbeat

unnamed (1)

Missing another heartbeat up close, speaks volumes to the connection of love and hope.

Kerri Elizabeth

Missing a heartbeat up close.

Missing a touch, a talk, a warm embrace.

Missing them in your space.

Missing that place.

In this present moment I reflect on times that centered me and protected me and gave me hope.

Happiness is part of me, it isn’t something I look for, it is simply part of what I live for.

Reflecting on the beauty of a person or place, a moment to remember a warm embrace is a blessing you brought into your space.

No matter what the circumstance is, missing someone comes from within.

Like happiness, missing someone becomes part of you ,when they impact your life and your heart too.

Even when you might not see them in a day or hear their voice in the moment you have something to say, they are with you all the way.

Have you ever missed someone that was next to you and their pain also became part of you?

Letting go of carrying another’s pain gives you strength to remain strong in their name.

Loving and not letting go of someone else’s pain becomes a gift you gain.

When you can love someone through their pain and not let the pain become part of you, then the healing becomes about both of you.

When you own the pain of someone else, they then have to experience it in more than themselves.

Let go of another’s pain and love them instead where they are and give them a hand and share your heart so that healing can be in two hearts.

Sunshine is a promise, even when the sun goes down and darkness is found, the sunrise will come, it’s a promise we won.

LOVE YOU ALWAYS SUNSHINE!

The Beat Is

20140208_154758

When the heart knows gratitude will be the beat!

Kerri Elizabeth

Finding the heart balance.

The heart speaks the truth the mind lets loose.

 If you listen to the heart there is nothing that can tear you apart.

Your heart feels the stress and shows you when to rest.

Your heart is your beat, it tells you where to move your feet.

Your heart is your compass to present purpose and comfort.

Follow the way your heart leads you and love in the way your heart needs you.

Your heart calls you in to win; can you listen and feel the beat again?

Listen quietly to the beat within; cleanse your heart, your soul, your mind.

Give your body time to rest, let your heart beat be at its best.

Cry if that’s what you need, and listen to the call of where your heart leads.

Don’t get stuck in a feeling that keeps you trapped from believing.

Believe in the heart and let it do its part!

Profound is found

living outloud

Let the life of today be your now and let the past not hold you down and all your tomorrows to be profound.

Kerri Elizabeth

Joy in the day and the moment and the feelings stay.

Letting go of the, I can’t’s, I don’t’s and I won’t’s.

I am letting go so I can receive, give, love and live.

A spontaneous moment I’m driven to chance, I’m risking the beauty in the possibility of the dance.

You make a difference to me, your adventure moves me, and nature come into me.

The vibration of sound rages through me so profoundly it goes deep down and I feel it consume me.

Resistance isn’t strong enough to hold back the feeling and keep me trapped in what life I’m not revealing.

The mountain, the waterfall, the drive, the exchange of energy shows its place in time.

The forest shows its branches, the trees will grow back, the growth shows the scars from fires and nature’s impact.

The wind blows the leaves from one side to the other, the road twists and turns as they flow together.

A lifetime of winds and gusting storms, they have shown their place again and again, the rains and the heat of the weather seem to leave less space for one
another.

Does the forest stop growing and say no more when life rushes through and has raged with storms?

Holding on to your roots, coming back to the start, where were you planted and are you healed from that part?

Are you moved through life under the moon, do you enjoy the stars and can you listen and learn?

Can you hear the winds come through today or are you fixed on the past storms that came through another day?

Can you be present in today and let go of how it happened long ago?

Can you be in today, can you get back to the moment when you go away?

Be present in the now and be careful your moment is not about what happened before with someone or somehow.

Be Aware of your Passages

20131029_171542

The passages of our life are truly defined, by the times we continue to push the capacity in that direction and our compass starts to lead us without conscious intention.

Kerri Elizabeth

Silent in a moment

 Be silent for a moment and able to listen inside.

What do you hear and what is drawing you near?

Be silent for a moment and listen to your heartbeat.

Gratitude moving through every breath is a reminder to let go of what keeps us from our best.

Breathe in this beautifully gifted moment being intentional in your thoughts.

 Be mindful in the filling of only love into your lungs, the only choice then is for love to be released to everyone.

Open the heart chambers to receive the flow that allows us to live with what creates us to grow.

Let the passage of this moment be conscious and true, in every moment we have the choice to create the passages of our mind that only lead to a ray of sunshine.

The passages and roads you go down the most will eventually create inside you the habits and thoughts that lead you.

Be mindful in where your life’s passages lead, where the capacity is stretched and if the air flowing is clean.

When you’re filled inside with animosity and stress, there is no room for exchanging or honoring anyone with your best.

Let go of what doesn’t serve your soul, breathe out the resentments, the angry inside, let go of shame and blame that took hold.

Give into this moment a reminder to you, that in every moment when conscious and true, your reaction will be what you want it to.

Your actions and reactions need air to move, pay close attention to how that exchange feels to you.

Sunshine is always on the horizon, it’s consistent and true.

When creating a passage inside of you, follow the path that leads to the best in you.

Shattered into place

1082098587

All that is your life is a masterpiece of art, let color and design shatter into place, you are the presenter in the gallery of life.

Kerri Elizabeth

Shattered into place, all that entails life with love.

There are circumstances and chance, risk and reaching for more than this.

Presentation, purpose, pleasure, how are you be affected by this weather?

There is your day, your time, love and life, the excitement of seeing wildlife.

With an open heart and open arms, carefree and living, stepping into new beginnings.

When life’s circumstances shatter and chance matters, when reaching for more is risking the possibilities of an open door, do you step forth or get behind the door?

When life shatters into pieces can you make a mosaic art piece that shows the scars of a masterpiece?

When life shatters and presentation gets lost, when purpose becomes a thought and pleasure is lost, a masterpiece is waiting to be shattered into place.

Shattered pain can remain and turn into an artwork that remains an element of beautiful change.

Evolve into an art piece, a masterpiece of life, a presentation that changes lives.

A smile, a hug, a listening ear, a laugh, a story, a heart to share, time and experience and lessons learned, you’re an art piece in this gallery of life’s turns.

With color, creation, touch and feeling with emotion, music and movement revealing, shattered into place share your creative space.

You are a masterpiece of beauty to embrace, shattered into place, your smiles, your love, your life, your experiences, your pains, your joys, your glances, your heart, your mind, your thoughts, your love, your moments, your hugs , your kisses, your sorrows, your excitement and joys , yesterdays, todays and tomorrows, you’re shattered into place in a masterpiece of grace.

Sun shining on the beauty of what a masterpiece your life has made, share it with an eye of an artist inside.
