    CENTERING
    Just for Now, by Danna Faulds (eyes closed?)

    Just for now,
and without asking how,
let yourself sink into stillness.
    Just for now,
lay down the weight
you so patiently bear upon your shoulders.
    Feel the earth receive you,
and the infinite expanse of sky
grow even wider
as your awareness reaches up to meet it.
    Just for now,
allow a wave of breath to enliven your experience. Breathe out whatever blocks you from the truth.
    Just for now, be boundless, free,
awakened energy tingling in your hands and feet. Drink in the possibility of being
who and what you really are:
    so fully alive
that when you open your eyes
    the world looks different, newly born and vibrant,.
    Just for now.
    -Danna Faulds

    Dear Paul in the dark,
    It's okay. I'm here with you. I love you. We got this. The level of darkness is not a sign of how permanent the darkness is.

    Brené Brown & Karen Walrond on Accessing Joy & Finding Connection in the Midst of Struggle
    https://brenebrown.com/podcast/accessing-joy-and-finding-connection-in-the-midst-of-struggle/
    1. How can I feel connected today?
    2. How can I feel healthy today?
    3. How can I feel purposeful today?
    THINGS I'M REMEMBERING
    Five things really helping me right now:
    1. PW: It's just a little thing
       CC: Little things add up: colander!
    2.   PW: But, I already DID slow down!
       Inner Wise One: Slower, still.
    3.   I don't like feeling this way.
       CC: There is value in not feeling good. Can you sit with it for a minute?
    4.   PW: I don't know if I can handle it.
       CC: Uhm, you are handling it. You're here.
    5.   PW: Once I get past this speed bump, then things should be better/smoother.
       Inner Wise One: There is no pain-free or problem-free life waiting for me, even though I deserve the idea of both.

4 Minutes to Reflect

I have had the privilege to experience Paul in person, I miss him! In the times of COVID, Paul’s podcasts are an amazing way to experience Ripples and kick off self reflection for 4 minutes, an hour, a day, a week, and far beyond. Thank you for taking on this project and allowing us to hear you again!
