Beneath Stillness

Be U Fully 
In the silence
People will know
You fully 
By the life
You present
Quietly now
All is known
Through love

Quieting Mind

Silently I lay
Just before slumber
Thoughts seem to
Rush in from all
Directions
Mostly of events
Or what ifs
 
I take a breath
 
Breathing in
And breathing out
 
Focusing on
One key
Element
My breath
 
Breathing
Is life itself
 
Here I lay
Knowing
I need to
Quiet my mind
 
Breathing helps
Calms my thoughts
Welcoming my breath
Centering me
Allowing me
To create
In my mind
A place of solitude
Of innovation
Creating dreams
For my tomorrows
To thrive and survive
 
Quietly now
Just breathing
Resting
For what comes next

WaterDreams Meditation

Imagine in the stillness of the moment…

one ventures into the water

after a long walk on the beach…

time for a swim like no other…

a wave rushes towards one…

open arms to embrace

the oncoming water as one dives

into see what beauties lie beneath…

down deep down one travels…

seeing all kinds of colourful beings…

n some seethrough ones…

deeper deeper one travels…

seeking something…

something is drawing one down…

an excitement is reaching into one’s soul…

drawing one in…

deeply drawn…

one finds something…

something wonderful…

a treasure…

now to go up…

to catch one’s breath…breathe in…

breathing deeply in…

oh my what a delight…

Joy To One

One drop
is Such
An enormous
Amount of
Love, Of Water,
Of Life. Of Breath.
Each of us
are but
One Miracle.
We, each have
the choice
to share Love,
Water, Life, Breath.
In Sharing,
We are caring
Enough to share
Those smiles
And little joys
which make life
worth living.
Remember the power
Of one drop is
The same power of one
Breath, one Life, One All.

The Sound of Rain

Imagine a day when the sound of rain coming down was peaceful and calming to the very core of your being. The pitter patter sound as it hit the ground and surrounding areas. Each drop echoing the whispers heard within the wind…angelic whispers of songs of joy and peace. Soothing is such a sound. All troubles, worries, and thoughts seem to slip away…almost completely forgotten. Pitter-patter…A flash of lightning blazes across the sky…Boom and crackle. A rush of excitement as one watches the dancing lightning with the thundering sounds. Slowing the sounds seem to become less intense and less vibrant. Calmness instills within. Joyfulfilled.~pharris2013

WatersDeep

Step into the unknown.
A blank page, some water.
Vibrant paints
and the imagination
can take hold.
Here we are
looking into
what might be
maybe this
or could be that.
But what is to come is
Only what was meant to be.
The joyney is here
Present always.
A step this way can
only mean life goes on.
Time now to create
from unknown to known.
