Where are you?

I am here. What time is it? Now. Be Here Now was a concept first introduced to me by one of my teachers, Ram Dass. This concept was introduced to him by his Guru, Neem Karoli Baba. I later heard this reference rephrased in a book called The Way of the Peaceful Warrior. Not onlyContinue reading “Where are you?”

Running, Running, Running in the cycles of Samsara

Do we know of nothing else? As the night falls along with my heavy eye lids, it seems as if no moment passes to the next as I reopen them to wake. Where does the time go? Some days are easier than others. This morning I reset my alarm about 4 times until I jumpedContinue reading “Running, Running, Running in the cycles of Samsara”

Learning to Detach

In the constant battle to release the things that no longer serve me, the hope for a new possibility falls with it. Lately I’ve been viewing my potential options for a new home all while trying to remain still through it all. As no surprise to me at all, I am constantly being hit withContinue reading “Learning to Detach”

Today it rained for the first time in a long time

and I’m happy to have made it. While early Saturday mornings are not my usual schedule, today I stumbled out of bed to turn off my alarm for work. At least it’s not for long. I’m sitting by my open window in the cool air, listening the downfall of rain and my favorite album byContinue reading “Today it rained for the first time in a long time”

It’s an early Saturday,

And listening to the silent songs I found not too long ago has me thinking back. I remember lying in my bed of my grandmothers house, letting it wash over me. The chimes, the birds, the whistle of the wind; I wonder why I hadn’t heard it before—-felt it before. Zen Buddhism was my firstContinue reading “It’s an early Saturday,”

It isn’t Monday I let pass me,

but the right to stop when I could. Instead I overworked my eyes, making it hard to even write this post. As the leaves begin to fall through the summer heat, I realize no wonder things keep changing around me. I look at the lessons in my life and wonder if I give myself enoughContinue reading “It isn’t Monday I let pass me,”

Glad to see everyone’s doing fine…

When thinking about where I’ve been, the things I’ve seen, the people I’ve met; a sense of comfort yet sadness always begins to arise within me. What if I stayed? was something I’d ask a lot. Watching everyone grow older before my eyes yet further from everything I knew them to be, I can beginContinue reading “Glad to see everyone’s doing fine…”

are you awake?

it’s late and I can’t find the words to say anymore. I think something nice in my head and watch it fly past like a ribbon being pulled by a bird. this isn’t your average blog post and I don’t intend it to be. see, i’ve been wanting to beat myself up lately. i can’tContinue reading “are you awake?”

Take me back to 2017

My birthday is this Friday. I’ll be turning 22. I walked passed someone in the supermarket the other day while having a mental breakdown over the price of canned beans. Don’t mind me, I said. I’m having a mid-mid-life crisis. I’m just more emotional these days than usual and I can’t tell if it’s theContinue reading “Take me back to 2017”
