Sometimes silence speaks in the loudest voice of all. There is more to be heard in the pauses between words as in the actual words themselves at times. One form of silence I like is silencing the mind, the endless internal chatter that we all have, sometimes only fills our days thoughts with much ado about nothing, really. When we silence the mind the voice of the soul, the inner knowing, can speak to us clearly. There is much clarity to be gained in silence, much growth to be obtained by silencing our own thoughts daily, as a daily practice. This alone can bring about incredible, positive changes in our lives. So SHHHH!!! I am not simply doing nothing, I am merely practicing silence. ♥ Robin ♥
Sometimes I forget, I think maybe everyone has once or twice at least. We wake and are off and running at times before we have even truly appreciated the miracle that happened first thing in the morning. We Woke Up. That in itself is the thing I think we all forget at times. What a miracle it is just to wake up in the morning. Invitation extended to be aware, appreciative and grateful for just waking up.

It takes more than genetics to make a person a Father. It takes love, guidance, compassion, discipline, more love, being there, setting an example, teaching, playing and more loving still. Many fill this role in a child’s life that are not genetically linked to that child at all. Many who are biological Father’s fill this role as well. Today I want to thank all who wear the mantle of “Father” be it biological or not, Uncles, Granddads, Moms who are also Dads, Foster Fathers, Furry babies Fathers. Family is comprised of more than just being born into a particular line. Family of the soul, Fathers of the soul, you are loved and honored today and every day, as you touch the lives of so many. Thank you for all you do.

Good Morning new day! I greet you with love, with hope and excitement. For I never know what you will bring. Sometimes it is pleasure beyond my wildest dreams, other times quiet suffering due to circumstances unforeseen, yet others a strange mix of the two. Still, I choose to greet you with nothing but the highest hopes, the expectation that wishes will be fulfilled, questions answered and regardless of the outcome, I choose to revel in the simple pleasure, the gift of one more day to bask in the playground called “Earth”. ♥ Robin ♥
One moment can change your entire lifetime. So often we go around, head in the clouds, wrapped up in thoughts of yesterday, hopes or fears about tomorrow, totally oblivious to the only true moment we have. This moment. Until that is something momentous happens, something be it positive or not so, that alters your path and forces you to be in the here and now. Why do we choose to live like this? Is it really living or just existing? Today I am extending an invitation to all, including myself to be fully present in the moment. As I type this there is a bird outside my window singing his little song of beauty. How long has this been going on? No clue, I was being in the future, and only realized just now how sweet and soothing this little tune is to the soul. Wow, excited to see what other mini miracles we can be present to, just by being present to this moment. And the next… ♥ Robin ♥
When the darker times come, and they will, remember how it feels to be in the light. The smallest beam, a glimmer of light in the edge of our consciousness can be all that is needed to awaken our sleeping soul. For how would we know the magnificence of the light, were the darkness not our teacher? And how do we endure the darkness, if not for the remembrance of the light? Both are needed, necessary even, for continued awakening and growth. So as our soul sleeps in the dark, it is merely awaiting the return of the brilliant light of love our true self is. Embrace both the light and the dark, to know the way of walking this path is to know the secret of balance. We all do know this secret, it is only waiting for us to remember… ♥ Robin ♥
Welcome to the new day, dawning of a new chance fulled and filled with possibilities waiting for you to explore! If you really look at this phenomenon, often taken totally for granted, it is beautiful. Every day we get a new chance, every moment really to create the life full of juicy goodness we crave. It can be easy to feel overwhelmed at times, just relax and take it one step at a time. Baby steps if need be. Baby steps will keep you moving, going, pushing forward and creating your future. Leaps and bounds are great, wonderful, but never discount the baby steps, this means you are still moving forward, honoring yourself and your life by creating a space of peace which is an amazing gift. Wishing everyone much exploration into the possibilities of the day, every day. ♥ Robin ♥
