Take a moment to celebrate the fullness of your life. Know that all is well in this moment.
Your heart beats in your chest, your in-breath expands your lungs, the out-breath releases and contracts, the slow and sweet rhythm of life flowing and ebbing like waves on a beach.
You have been given the simple yet miraculous gifts of sunlight, fresh air, birdsong, eyes, hands, ears… the senses through which you experience life in your body.
If you are a worrier, anxious, fearful or regretful, you might miss the perfection of this moment here and now, the still point between breaths, the simple yet most precious gift of life.
Bring your awareness to your now. Yes, life here on our planet can be difficult and dangerous, fragile, fleeting, unjust, and heartbreaking. Please do not allow fear grief and anger to steal the fullness of this moment here and now as you partake in the beautiful mystery of life on Earth.
Let your mind rest and bring full awareness to the perfection of this particular moment. In this moment, you are safe, you are alive.
Allow yourself to enjoy and appreciate the most precious gift you’ve been given. Life on Earth in a human body.
We trees are expert meditators, living in the here and now, observing what is without judgment; inhabiting ourselves fully from deepest roots to sunlit crown.

We have an awareness of the breath of the earth, the waves and tides moving in and out, the winds, the seasons, the arc of the sun throughout the day, the brilliance and power of its light, the rising of life giving water through our roots, the magnetic pull of the earth, the many life forms we support and shelter, the moon phases and starlight that bathe us at night; the exquisite nuances of air, vibrating with thunder, soft with breezes, or high winds, roiling clouds thick with moisture.
We feel and know and observe it all.
We are rooted here now in this moment we have no need to question or analyze this fact or second guess or regret anything!
We simply take our place in the web of all that is, weaving a container for all beings on the earth with our branches and roots, crowning our beloved earth with our love.
The world will be a friendlier place for all living things when more learn to trust and live by the deep river of true knowing that flows through all humans. You must approach this learning with a pure heart, with genuine curiosity, and the desire to live an authentic life that satisfies your soul.

Do not demand fast answers on the spot and snap your fingers (as a math teacher did to the two legged one years ago). Allow the answers to surface within you. They may come right away or take some time.
Dear ones, do not allow yourself to be fooled…If you ask yourself which food is right for you in the moment and you continue to receive the answer “chocolate brownie” time after time, then your are not hearing from your intuition.
You may want a gooey brownie, once again, but wanting is of the ego. You must go deeper to find the truth and it may not coincide with the desires of your ego.
Your heart will know the truth as you discover your true desires, what is most important to you, who is right for you in friendship, in love, what foods are healthy and right for you, if you should move to a new town or stay, …
Strengthening your intuition and living by it will take courage, trust , a depth of commitment and awareness that will take practice and fortitude. When you have tapped in your intuition will steer you to your highest good every time you ask.
