Distance

I do not measure the distance between us in time or miles,
I measure it by how strong we connect emotionally, 
How well we understand each other,
How far we meet each other's needs, 
How clear we see each other's individuality,
How close we hold each other's heart,
How quietly we speak to each other,
I am not 18 hrs and 45 minutes or 9,129 miles away from you,
I am as close to you as I can reach out to you and you to me.

Live in the moment

When you live life by the clock,
Measuring your days in hours, minutes and seconds
You race through life for an empty prize, working to catch up, keep up or stay ahead,
You taste without savoring, 
Look without seeing,
Touch without feeling, 
Hear without listening,
and smell without memory.
Stop.
Savor the taste,
See when you look,
Feel when you touch,
Listen when you hear,
Stimulate your mind with a scent,
Then you will measure your life in moments,
because you live in the moment.

Open your mind



You close your mind,

When you focus on what you cannot do

and quench the flame of your spirit,

because you allow your fears,

to soar above your hopes.

Open your mind to what you can do,

because possibilities contained in fear,

are missed opportunities.

Be transformed



When you discover what you are missing 
you have found a ray of hope,
When you believe that you can attain it 
hope will cast out your fears, 
When you build your dream
you will change old your ways,
When you complete each challenge
You will step into the light,
When you share your dream
You will be the light.

Hope over fear

Though your fears may be countless,

engulfing your mind in darkness,

Keeping you from walking after your dreams,

Because you fear to stumble and fall.

Open your mind,

and follow the ray of hope that is your dream,

And you will walk into the light.

Hope

When we fail a challenge,

our fear of failing again,

holds us back from taking a second chance,

because we harbour our fears. 

Yet it should be,

that our hope to overcome our fears

push us forward,

for only then,

we become stronger.

The rhythm of life

We feel the rhythm of life when we embrace each experience that we have as unique

As when we taste  a dish for the second time or that second kiss we anticipate after the first

We take away from the second experience when we try to recreate the first because they cannot be the same

Just as the second wave that comes ashore is not as the one before because the grains of sand have shifted

We experience the first wave when we dip our toes,

The second when we dive in,

The third is when we swim

and thereafter,

We learn to be one with the sea.

When we dance to the rhythm of life

We will not just exist

We will live.
