Owl Wisdom of the Day!


Owl Wisdom of the Day- this time from one of the babies - can be found at the Waking Planet Community on FaceBook. (just search "waking planet" on FB- can't get the link to work, sorry!)

I think of it as a little haven where we can share good news, inspiration, love-in-action, art, beauty and stories that remind us of the holiness of self and all. I hope you will join the over 1,000 like-minded spirits there!

I will be posting another video soon- a guided meditation/visualization to connect to the earth, your breath, gratitude and beauty- the first four steps to inner peace. I realized I needed to work with the steps a little more before sharing-  I hope the video will help open clear calm spaces within you, ease tensions and help you to relax more fully into the deep, sacred center of your being where there is no fear, no anger, no pain.

Happy Valentine's Day xoxoxo

Unfurling Beauty                                                    B Upton

Saints Bowing in the Mountains


Do you know how beautiful you are?
I think not, my dear.
...For as you talk of God,
I see great parades with wildly colorful bands
Streaming from your mind and heart,
Carrying wonderful and secret messages
To every corner of this world.
I see saints bowing in the mountains
Hundreds of miles away
To the wonder of sounds
That break into light
From your most common words.
Speak to me of your mother,
Your cousins and your friends.
Tell me of squirrels and birds you know.
Awaken your legion of nightingales---
Let them soar wild and free in the sky.
And begin to sing to God.
Let's all begin to sing to God!
Do you know how beautiful you are?
I think not, my dear,
Yet Hafiz
Could set you upon a Stage
And worship you forever!"
- Hafiz

It's Time

"It's Time"                                                           B Upton


Playing with a little crystal ball and sunlight can yield some pretty effects. Hope this image and words resonate within you!

Winter Meditation

The Waking Planet Flag in Winter                                                      B Upton


As the clear winter water
Nourishes the seed within the earth,
I am nourished by new-found awareness
of who I truly am.
This awareness has not yet fully matured,
And I rest content
In the arms of the unfolding universe,
Which will reveal all wisdom
In its time.
the Power of the unmanifest
Even now works within my spiritual heart,
And I am at peace.
