We are all a little bit afraid of our feelings

We judge ourselves for our pains and wounds

This poem/prose was inspired by a friend's story about how her director, an African American woman, sent an email to all her team members saying, "No matter where you stand, I stand by you."

No matter where you stand, I stand by you

No one is my enemy. The only enemy is...

After the first weekend of unrest in Downtown Seattle, I was saddened and overwhelmed. These two poems came one after another, guiding me with it's wisdom that I have yet to embody.

Anger is a reminder that a part in us is sad and there is fight left in us.

Boredom is the seed which pushes us past our resistance to do what makes us come alive.

Challenge is a space for us to practice courage and reveal who we are.

Despair is a reminder of our fragilit...

I dislike spiders. I saw a small spider crawling at my fire place this week. Strangely, I find myself experiencing a sense of joy when I saw this spider. Since I live by myself, the spider is now the most intimate living thing under my roof besides my plants.

A poem (of sorts) on marriage

When a man gives a women a diamond ring, he is giving her his heart, in the shape of a diamond, for her safekeeping.

The women accepts the responsibility to reflect his light with the diamond given. She is the guardian of his heart, shining...

A poem on surrendering our ambition to the flow of life. I heard David Whyte's voice while writing this poem, which is why some prose sound similar to how he recites his poetry.

A poem on finding joy and wonder in beginner's mind

Joy illuminates from love

There is no need to search for it

Love lives within my soul

Joy is who I am

And wonder how we can pull back

Do you live with a sense of abundance? Or are you more like me - living with fears of not having enough?

Recently, a friend mentioned how she used to keep all her favorite stationary items aside. She treasured them and never got around to using them. I did the same thin...

Excerpt from April 2019 give glow newsletter.

This month, I reflected on the value of patience, inspired by my lack of patience with going #2 in the bathroom. Yes, I am actually talking about this.

Why am I telling you about this? My wish is that whatever you are wishi...
