Transformation

Before you label it good or bad…

…before you critique it as right or wrong…

…before you define ‘them’ and ‘those’ as in or out…

…or before you grant yourself the freedom to judge – give yourself the opportunity to just be.

Now you can be with the moment.

Now you can be in the moment.

Let the moment work on you before you work on it.

This is the art of allowing.

This is how one becomes available to what life is ushering forth on your behalf.

Life just happens to be woven and composed with the purposes of transformation. We see it everywhere if we will only stop, look, and acknowledge.

Just ask the trees or the person(s) you most admire.

You’ll see their branches, but they’ll tell you stories about their leaves.

LTMP Podcast 5: What’s On Your Radio?

LTMP Podcast 5: What’s on your radio?

You can download or listen in iTunes to this podcast by clicking here.

Podcast Topic

This podcast we talk about gaining awareness to the things that on our metaphorical radio dials and how they play into our being, lives, relationships, and businesses.


Book

The book we discuss in this episode is Let Your Life Speak by Parker J. Palmer. I read this book over the weekend and I plan on rereading it again this coming weekend again. It is b.e.a.utiful.

In the podcast I read some segments of the book that discuss living out of and into your true self, the issue of burnout, and the gift you become to the world as your music plays.

For more information on Parker J. Palmer, be sure to visit http://www.couragerenewal.org/. And if you know Parker, be sure to tell him his words have changed a young lad in Texas.


Music

This week we check out a new up and coming artists, James Bay. Not long ago I was driving and heard his voice come through my radio. In an instant I knew his riffs, lyrics, and tone had something to teach me.

Be sure to visit his site at http://www.jamesbay.com/ and purchase his latest record in iTunes by clicking here.

I loved his lyrics in his song, Let It Go.

But now we’re sleeping at the edge –Holding something we don’t need

All this delusion in our heads – Is gonna bring us to our knees

So come on let it go
Just let it be
Why don’t you be you
And I’ll be me
Everything’s that’s broke
Leave it to the breeze
Why don’t you be you
And I’ll be me

Thoughts

So what’s on your radio dial?

The last five books you’ve read will write the prescription for your next pair of glasses.

You are the average of your five closest friends.

The last five songs you’ve heard will be what you’ll be whistling.

Awareness of such proximity is the great predictor of the people, paths, and melodies that will write the soundtrack of our stories.

Benediction
May you pause by the orchid.
Listen to the bluebird sing.
And be love.

Crystal Ball

You actually do have a crystall ball.

It’s called – today.

Look into it.

It’s very indicative of what tomorrow, July, 2013, and even your next decade will look like.

Every tomorrow was at one time a today.

We are all crystall ballers. Look, search, see and report back.
