slowing down

Mexico Jan19 1 (3)

Awakening

Slowing down.
I see with clarity.

Slowing down.
I hear what people are saying.

Slowing down.
I feel the energy around me.

Slowing down.
I speak in the direction of truth.

Slowing down.
I find power within me.

Slowing down.
I breathe into the world.

And, I awaken.

 

This poem was published in my first poetry book Mostly My Heart Sings. Since connecting last week with my beautiful friend Jana, I’ve been thinking a lot about going slower. When we were together we talked about how much richer our experience is when we go slow enough to be fully present for it.

 

* I took this photo in Mazunte, Mexico. This beautiful flower grew from the top of a small tree near a bus stop on the main road. I loved the way it was awakening to the light of a beautiful sunny day.
