sunday kind of love… james bay

May I be well, happy, and peaceful. May my teachers be well, happy, and peaceful. May my parents be well, happy, and peaceful. May my relatives be well, happy, and peaceful. May my friends be well, happy, and peaceful. May the indifferent persons be well, happy, and peaceful. May the unfriendly persons be well, happy, and peaceful. May all meditators be well, happy, and peaceful. May all beings be well, happy, and peaceful.

May I be well, happy, and peaceful.
May my teachers be well, happy, and peaceful.
May my parents be well, happy, and peaceful.
May my relatives be well, happy, and peaceful.
May my friends be well, happy, and peaceful.
May the indifferent persons be well, happy, and peaceful.
May the unfriendly persons be well, happy, and peaceful.
May all meditators be well, happy, and peaceful.
May all beings be well, happy, and peaceful.

as i emerge from several weeks of funk, i savor some validation with decisions made. i am currently not steeping in the cacaphony that was engulfing my life for a couple of months. the dark that followed is attributed to a barrage of questions that circled my head like those cartoon birds after the road runner fooled the coyote yet again. i have been stuck in wondering why i continue to make decisions that lead me to the edge of a volcano.

i have come up with no direct answers to these annoying queries that have continued to ruminate around my noggin. instead i have come up with some different questions to ask.

how can i let go of judging my actions?

what if i am learning what i need to learn?

could it be that short term confusion may be better than living with fruit flies all around?

i am meeting with a colleague to discuss the creation and launch of a legal recovery coach service. i am really excited- mostly about beginning something again. my strong suit is beginnings. still working on the rest.

have become a huge huge huge james bay fan. he’s always on recently played. “scars” is almost like a song for my inner kid.

You’re setting off,
It’s time to go, the engine’s running
My mind is lost,
We always knew this day was coming
And now it’s more frightening than it’s ever gonna be

We grow apart,
I watch you on the red horizon
Your lion’s heart
Will protect you under stormy skies
And I will always be listening for your laughter and your tears

And as soon as I can hold you once again
I won’t let go of you, I swear

We lived through scars this time
But I’ve made up my mind
We can’t leave us behind anymore

Your hands are cold,
Your lips are turning blue, you’re shaking
This fragile heart,
So heavy in my chest, it’s breaking
And in the dark, you try to make a pay phone call to me

But you’re miles away,
You’re breaking up, you’re on your own
It’s hard to take,
I need an hour just to say hello
But I can’t make the truth of this work out for you or me

And for all the pennies in your pocket
We barely get a second just to speak

We lived through scars this time
But I’ve made up my mind
We can’t leave us behind anymore

We’ll have to hurt for now
But next time there’s no doubt
‘Cause I can’t go without you anymore… james bay
