Daily Prayer of Acceptance

I accept myself completely.
I accept my strengths and my weaknesses, my gifts and
my shortcomings.
I accept myself as a human being.
I accept that I am here to learn and grow, and
I accept that I am learning and growing.
I accept the personality I’ve developed, and
I accept my power to heal and change.

I accept myself without condition or reservation.
I accept that the core of my being is goodness and that my
essence is love, and
I accept that I sometimes forget that.

I accept myself completely, and in this acceptance
I find an ever-deepening inner strength.
From this place of strength I accept my life fully and
I am open to the lessons it offers me each day.

I accept that within my mind are both fear and love, and
I accept my power to choose which I will experience as
real.
I recognize that I experience only the results of my own
choices.
I accept the times that I choose fear as part of my learning
and healing process, and
I accept that I have the potential and power in any moment
to choose love instead.

I accept mistakes as a part of growth.
I am willing to forgive myself and give myself another
chance.
I accept that my life is the expression of my thought, and
I commit myself to aligning my thoughts more and more
each day with the Thought of Love.
I accept that I am an expression of this Love.
I am Love’s hands, voice and heart on Earth.

I accept my own life as a blessing and a gift.
My heart is open to receive, and I am deeply grateful.
May I always share the gifts that I receive fully, freely, and
joyfully.
I accept all that I was, all that I am, and all that I choose to become.

PRESENCE OF GAIA by Josephine Wall

You asked me to be small
So that you could feel BIG
You said I take up too much space
My energy is too much for you to handle
You said I don’t HAVE TO take up so much room on the planet.

I say that I am not serving you OR me if I am not exactly
Who/how I am inside

at my core.

And besides,
The universe wants us to expanD
And grow
And thrive

To explode out our potential
out into the world

As much as Spirit knew we could
When we were dreamed into being.

The truth is,
It is not you OR me.
It is you AND me.

There is abundant space in earth’s garden
For all of us to fully bloom.

:: No Regrets ::

As you progress and become a wiser parent, you may at times feel regret that you didn’t “know better” when your children were younger. You may even feel guilty for “damaging” them. If so, let Mother Nature inspire you to a more hopeful perspective. Have you ever explored a wild forest and appreciated the awesome way in which Life springs forth from the chaos? Then you know Mother Nature never regrets. She learns as she goes and always makes the best of things as they are. She never looks back. When a tree takes root in the shadows, Mother Nature doesn’t regret giving it a “sub-optimum” start in life. She trusts it will bend toward the Light and find a way to thrive. And in doing so, the tree creates its own unique beauty. She knows that no storm, flood, or fire can stop the endless Flow of Life through her children.

It is September and I am in the Coop Cars a lot these days driving back and forth to Family Meetings with all the families I work with talking to the kids about what they want to pursue in their learning for this year.  On the way, I like to listen to CBC Radio One.  This morning on The Current, they had David Myles on- a musician from Fredericton, Nova Scotia.  He apparently has a lot of older folks that are fans in big part to this song he wrote when he was 24.  I really liked the message of the song- especially the bits about continuing to learn and grow.  I thought it was fitting considering I was traveling to speak to families about their own learning passions for this year.

So now I am wondering…

What is on your personal learning goals for this year?  Any passions/interests you want to pursue?  If so, drop me a comment here and let me know!

My Poetry

DREAM SEQUENCE By Frank Howell

Irrepressible Spirit

Eagle glides in all her majesty

As lesser birds peck at her

In attempt to keep her at bay.

Eagle does not flinch.

She continues with ease and grace

As crows and gulls frantically fly

To keep up with her.

Paradox

All I have

Is my experience.

I know it’s not everything

And yet it is.

Open to Desire
