Recently a student mentioned during our meditation circle gathering that she has been waking up around 4 AM every night.  A few other students chimed in that the same thing was happening for them.

I responded with a teaching I learned from Dr. Wayne Dyer.  It begins with a beautiful quote from Rumi, the 13th century ancient poet and Sufi master.  Rumi is considered to be the most popular poet in the United States.

"The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.

Don't go back to sleep.

You must ask for what you really want.

Don't go back to sleep."

Next time this happens, remember this poem from Rumi.  These hours before dawn are when we are close to our Source.  It is a great time to begin your dialogue with the Universe and to meditate, pray or journal.

Be still and know the great I AM.

Recently my oldest daughter and her husband invited me on their family vacation.  We spent three days hiking magnificent trails in Shenandoah National Park. 

This particular hike was an extraordinary experience being present as I watched my daughter so effortlessly guide her five year old daughter both up and down these rocks. 

My practice of meditation expands my awareness so I AM able to see beyond the descent. 

I see how they trust each other....I see a tiny little girl gently holding her mother’s hand and a mother allowing her daughter to step forward and be guided by her own intuition. 

I see where I am standing at 62 and I feel a sense of overwhelming peace. 

I feel the grace of my ability to let go in this moment and practice non interference. 

I stop to become the “observer” to witness. 

I am loving awareness here. 

I rejoice as I feel my heart expand at my aliveness and the gratitude I feel as my heart continues to swell to the point I fight tears.  

I am...
