Check Under the Hood

Check Under the Hood

Things are not as they appear.
The Mojave Desert
May have miles of sun-baked desert soil,
Flowing with cacti, Joshua trees and tumbleweeds
As its lone vegetation
Yet, below the surface of that arid desert there are:
Underground rivers, micro-organisms and Oases
We have to check under the Hood.

We are all so much more than our appearance.
Below the surface lies our truth.
Our treasure trove of gifts,
Our individual molecular capabilities,
Our unique desires and needs,
Let’s take the time to truly know who we really are-
Under the Hood.

The Love in Blood

The Vermilion Love Saturation

The Love in Blood

As I breathe in, I feel the openness of each molecule of air as it saturates my vermilion blood nurturing it and enveloping it in the love that is creation. It scurries through my arteries carrying that love from now to the future. The world in which I live knows no time. My life is magnified in the thud of my heartbeat as I reach for my desires that lead me to my purpose.

My fears and sorrows climb up the corridors of my soul. I whisper, “Hello.” to them. They are as vital as the deoxygenated blood that runs through my veins. I thank them for showing me how to define my happiness. I bless them. But warn them, “I will not be drowned by you, for the worship of you is shallow. It is the light within that I follow.”

I exhale eliminating the “can’t do” energy of the past. Yet, I refuse to judge it. I choose to live vibrantly within each breath. I choose to love myself first. For it is only through the love of myself that I can serve others, forever.
