    What’s in your closet?

    What’s in my closet? I mean really. Like in the deep, dark corners (which are actually quite dark when it’s either cloudy or nighttime – or both – I really should put some damn lights in there!) For the past month or so I’ve been completely overwhelmed with the meer presence of it. So I close the doors when I sleep because it seems to calm the room down. Out of sight, out of mind. So sometimes, I lay on my bed with a piano only station playing on Pandora & spend time in my head. Last night that brought me into my closet. As I lay there thinking about…

    Ups & Downs

    I’m going to go back to a moment I had meditating this morning. On my mind this morning were the ups and downs of life. We all experience them and know them well. They are truly inevitable. As I continued to pull myself back to my breath when my mind would wander I was able to see a strong parallel between my thoughts and what happens to my body as I focused on deep breathing. With each deep breath my chest would rise to nearly full capacity and then it would slowly deflate to empty. Up and down. The more I let my mind sit comfortably with my worlds meeting…
