No. 381: A House of Incredible Splendor



Guiding a Person to their Complete Expression of Voice
Is like holding the hand of a Most Precious Friend
Who,
Once Wearing a Blindfold,
Is amazed at the Utter Beauty (A House of Incredible Splendor--A Home of Infinite Bliss)
That's been in Her All Along
Even before the Unveiling.

...even, before, S/He see(ng)s.


THIS is Life.  THIS is Love.  THIS is From the Heart Singing.

No. 380: The case of the Mysterious TumTum


Today in hot yoga I mis-identified my own tummy.
It the steamy heat of the third posture, I looked in the mirror and thought:
What a Nice Tummy She Has!
It is strong and defined...it probably supports her back well!
Look at that waist! An hourglass!
And then
I realized
It 
Was 
Me! 

COOL!

😊

But what does this have to do with singing, you may ask?
Well, it's about Trusting the Process.

Hot yoga, like singing, is a Path to developing the Self 
Spiritually, mentally, physically and emotionally.
 
On all these different planes we live out our search for Voice.  

Sometimes on the Path it can seem we are taking FOREVER to get anywhere...
But it's the every day commitment to a process 
That helps us become, sometimes mysteriously even to us,
Who We Really Can Be. 

THIS is Life. THIS is Love. THIS is From the Heart Singing. Wahooooo!

No. 378: Thank You.



...When I even THINK of teaching singing, 
an emotion wells up inside me akin to wonder...
to childlike curiosity...
so close to joy it feels like I need to hold it close to my chest 
like an endangered butterfly.  
Then I let it go, 
and Bliss leaks out my eyes 
'til all of me vibrates with the resonance of Love 
coming to Life. 

Thank You. Thank You. Thank You. (WhoEver You Are...)


This is Life. This is Love. This is From the Heart Singing.

No. 377: Guaranteed Weirdness.


On the Way to Your Own Voice
There's Gonna Be

~Guaranteed~

Weirdness
Newness
Oddities
Crudeness
Wonkiness
and
Downright BLECH--

Or at least
So It Seems

For a Creature Who's Growing
From Deep Down Deep
Cannot Know Anything
But Darkness

Until She Sees What's Not.
