In Silence


In silence you will become your true self.

In silence you will gather strength to go on.

And in silence you will know and experience true love.

Be in silence and become the beautiful Spirit that you are.



Are you feeling lost? Sometimes that just seems to happen, but don’t despair, you will soon get back on track somewhere. Become very still, silent, letting all thoughts cramming through your brain dissolve into nothingness. Let yourself bond with nature through a window, or find a door and move yourself right out.

In nature is where you’ll find your lost yearning little self. It’s hiding in the trees along the busy highway. It’s sleeping in the flowers, or being carried by that bumblebee. Hey, that squirrel over there scurrying along the leaves just found it! Hurry before he buries it deep beneath the earth.

You are somewhere floating in the streams, or lakes, and can even be found roaring in the ocean waves. Look up, and see your lost self in the sky just hanging out with the clouds so free.

I think that soon you will come to realize that you are never really lost. You are always somewhere simply waiting to connect. Still doubting? Then by all means go outside and you will see that you, my friend, are part of everything!

Be Who You Are

Letter to Myself: “Dear Me show me how to be Me today.”
~ Robert Holden

You do know who you are… right? You’re that wonderful creature that’s always happy with a smile on your face and having a kind word and very helpful toward everyone. You’re full of adventure and wonderment, and have no expectations or demands on your life, or for that matter, anyone else’s.

You are a very grateful soul just content to be alive flowing from moment to moment with positive energy bursting out from all sides, but you already know this… don’t you? Well, deep down inside you do. This is the you that is known as your “Spirit.” It’s the real you, but a lot of the time it gets kicked to the side as your ego takes over the reins of your life and tells you the way it should be. Don’t listen; ego is full of lies.

Don’t let society define who you are. Don’t listen to the dishonesty surrounding you. Go deep within yourself and connect to the lovely being that you are. Don’t fear the who you might be, but instead trust that the universe put you where you are right now to be the who you are.

“Love after Love” by Derek Walcott

The time will come
when, with elation,
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror,
and each will smile at the other’s welcome,

and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.
