Live. In Dreams Awake


“Begin again to live out your dreams…
One moment. One step. One breath at a time.” – Te’

Perhaps today with the sounds of wild life.
With the soft falling rain. The distance river.

I will let myself feel held.
In the knowing that I am not alone on this journey.

A journey that I have felt so abandoned. So alone.
And many times so afraid to live my dreams.

Not so much for fear of what lie ahead,
but “how” I am going to get there…

To where I am going.

Is here.

In this moment.
I pause.

To Live. In Dreams Awake.


High Five to You!

Rise & Shine


Can you
see yourself
for who you are
right now?

Without waiting
until you become
who you think you should
or desire to be…

as you Rise & Shine!

Before You


“The world before you, unknown.”

You stand.
As you are.

Awaken with the magic of what lies ahead
beginnings full of endless possibilities.

The world
before you.

Shrouded in the uncertainty
and endless possibilities.

You have climbed this peak before
but never has the light and fog

created such a world
of pure joy.

A world all its own
before you.

Above the clouds
where dreams dance freely.

Can you see that from where you stand?
Guided and surrounded with love…

as your world lays before you.

Cheers to the triumph of your journey!

What If?


What if I told you out loud?

All the things that you already know in your heart…all the things that you sense, feel and keep locked inside?

All the things you are afraid to speak for fear that by giving breath to them they may become more real?

Would you honor your own intuition?

What if I told you that you are right about everything?

About having been scared and too stubborn to sit to embrace the truth that lies buried behind the masks that we think disguise us.

Would you love more deeply?

What if I told you that I have too been afraid to trust?

To trust would require courage.
Courage I know we both embody but have yet to fully accept.

Would we be honest?

What if we were?

Simply ourselves…

Buried Treasure


“In search of buried treasure. Within myself. I find everything.”  – Te’

As I write, it seems as as if I am building a new ship…

Using some of the ‘salvageable’ pieces from the wreckage of an old life.
Integrating the pieces that fit.
Renewing what is sacred.

Some new pieces may have been gifted.
Some have been collected along the way.
Some even purchased.

When we are in the midst of creating ourselves, on our journey…

Some of our friends and family may feel neglected.
That we have somehow forgotten them. They may even feel abandoned.
Like we have either jumped ship or dumped them overboard.

In reality the duo of opposites is true…
Delving into deep waters.
In search of buried treasure. Within oneself. We find everything.

High Five to finding buried treasure!
