JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 266 :: welcome fall

23 Sep


{trust}  

Welcome Fall. Today is your day!

When the seasons change I usually notice the subtle difference in the world around me, including the new colors and the change in the breeze. Even though today was almost 90 degrees I could still feel that first day of Fall all around me in living color. 

More than anything I heard the words of my dear teacher in my mind. “Notice the beauty” her words came back to me. “Focus on the beauty.” 

She taught me a little about plants and flowers but mosllt she taught me the power of nature’s beauty. No wonder I felt her with me today as Mother Nature begins to dress up for the Fall Ball in her leaves of gold and red and bright orange. 

Welcome Fall. I’m excited to see the beauty you bring! 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 240 :: all shall be well

28 Aug

{trust}  

The world lost a bright light today and my dear teacher. Tonight I sit here reflecting on the words that she gave me for precisely moments like these. All shall be well. 

This is not the first time I have lost someone I loved but it is always hard to say goodbye. Even though I know that my teacher and her lessons will remain with me for a lifetime, and I am part of a lineage of students that will carry on her wisdom, it is still not easy. 

If there is one thing I know to do now, it is to look for the magic. There is magic in everyday life and there is magic in our dear relationships that continue way past the final breaths we breathe.

As my teacher would sing to me and I will sing into the future: 

All Shall Be Well, 
All Shall Be Well, 
And All Matter of Things, 
Shall Be Well, 
Shall Be Well, 
Shall Be Well. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 239 :: trusting it all

27 Aug

{trust}  

Tonight I am reflecting on what it takes to trust and learn.

And that brings me to Laughter. I am laughing a little on the inside, at the realization that the joke has been on me. This year of Trust has given me many twists and turns and you know what the pattern keeps coming back to? Trusting myself. 

They say when the student is ready the teacher appears. And, now, my dearest teacher is in hospice. There is irony in this situation, being that this is the year that I am learning to trust and it appears it will also be the year when she is learning to leave. The two may intersect and while it wouldn’t surprise me, still I am shocked. 

She is the one who taught me to trust it all to matter. She taught me to trust the moments of confusion, and the moments of clarity, for each, have a valuable lesson to bring forward. She taught me that it all matters… and I mean ALL. 

When a spider would show up on my window she would ask me to trust it (not to kill it). When a flower bloomed she taught me to honor it. When an animal appeared she taught me to thank it. She was trained in Native American ways and in her teachings she taught me that everything mattered. Everything had a message. Everything had a purpose. 

So with that, I am left with this: the student has become the teacher. Through her lesson plan, I have ultimately been taught to trust myself. Silly me, not realizing that this was her plan all along. 

Now, as she prepares to leave I also know that she will never be gone. This is, in a way, the final test and possibly my graduation. And since I know that everything matters, I know that she will choose the perfect moment to leave and the perfect moment to remind me that lessons and love live on. 

They always do.
Trust me.

More tomorrow.
Jamie
