Mind Bending- Rapid Growth

 

5 B2B Sales Tools Your Team Needs for Rapid Growth 768x461 1 - Mind Bending- Rapid Growth

From conception to 8 years of age

The brain develops at lightning speed

We are led, as in a hypnotic trance

At the mercy of others guidance

What we feed it, will grow

Starve what you do not want to live there

What we do then and from there

Makes us who we are body and soul

The mind is the power behind the life

A treasure not to waste

Each as unique as a snowflake

Completely set apart

No wonder we can feel lost and alone

No one knows who we really are

It’s true

That’s why we need history with people

Makes us remember the times

Which developed where we came from

This is the gift of celebration

So many want to forget

The loss and pain of it

Turns our hearts from celebrating

And to ignoring the pain

But we must remember

We choose what we feed ourselves

We all see from our own vantage point

Standing on a mountaintop

An engineer, an artist and a marketer

View the sun rising over the divide

The engineer equates and produces data

The artist sees the light and hues

The marketer finds a way to capitalize

All have seen the same thing

Through different lens

Do not argue your point of view

Instead realize they all point to the same thing

Each a gift to bring together

The compilation is the full bodied truth

No one stands out as the authority

When all see only what is given to them to see

Can’t you see

That it is in coming together

That we expand our vision

Focus on the common denominator

Not on being heard

Share what you know

In a spirit of humility

Open the door for others

To find a new way

To live and not to stagnate

We must push the barriers of our thinking

Sometimes knock them down

Be careful who you let in

Who you buy into

To become transformed

You must breathe clean air

Ingest no toxins

To resist infections

Take the time to view beauty

To cleanse your thoughts

To not ruminate on the negative

But instead

Fill yourself with positivism and love

Be wise however

There are sharks and scorpions where you swim and walk

Align yourself with others who can hoist you up

Fill your cup

Make it so you overflow

From all the nature, music and art

You absorb and pour out

Grow and feed others

Find your voice, your heart

Be a warrior who does not even have to fight

Win without force

Find a way in

To expand and break away

The crust of society

Bloom and grow

The Hope Of New

image - The Hope Of New

There is a time for everything under the sun

There are decades and eras

They bring with them trials

Tragedies and Triumphs

The best of times

The worst of times

The lessons learned

To only give up when the ship

Will take you down

So you must jump

Jump and the Universe will catch you

Stubbornness may serve you

Or it may drown you

Choose wisely

What will be is up to you

Every decision

However labored it may come

To you may be a blessing or a curse

Trust your gut

Build your mind

Prepare the way

To happiness and fulfillment

You are the canvas

You are the artist

It is a collaboration between

You and your Maker

And those you allow to touch you

You have the power

Now understand this

Don’t rent space in your head to

Strangers with questionable intent

Those who torment or dominate

You can kick them out

You can say no to that negative stream

Do not let polluted waters touch you

Do not wade in that water

Wade instead in the waters that cleanse

To the stream that leads to the crystal clean lake

Ride the wave

Soar into the air

Spin and fly

And when they try to catch you

Cut yourself free

They do not understand

They are afraid to lose you as their source

Of kindness, energy and love

But you need fuel too

Find those who will love you

Find those who GET YOU

Find those for whom

Everyday is an adventure

Who will open doors for you and you for them

Into the magical world of mystery

People forget

They forget to remember

To believe as a child

To see beauty and excitement

So many in prison

You used to break them free

At your own expense

Now set yourself free

And inspire those you love

To do the same

Just go for it

No holding back

That’s what NEW means

Shed the old skin

Grow the new

It’s time

I Can Feel It

me4 - I Can Feel It

Somehow nostalgia gripped me tonight

I remembered things best forgotten

But all those memories brought me here today

I had made a breakthrough yesterday

I realized secrets of the heart

Not clouded anymore by fear

Doubt or worry

When the heart is open

And the mind is too

It is a powerful tool for advancement

In a world that rewards

For all the wrong reasons

And sometimes for the right

I am seeking no reward

But rather I am guided by PEACE

The true guide to all that lasts

To all that conquers evil

To all that the imagination quests for

In that still place one feels itself through

And the knowledge of knowing

That every step taken

Can be felt on the soles of ones feet

In the nostrils as the fragrance of change

Inspires and draws further

The soul that will not be conquered

As it should not be before its time

Will not be because it knows

That a greater purpose is the aim

One always out of reach

But in patience

And with pursuit can overcome

All that lies ahead

There is power in knowing

And seeing with the minds eye

Trust once established becomes

The chauffeur, the companion

So, even if I remember what once I chose to forget

There must be a reason

No more worry

Just going for the ride

The Seed of Transformation

mustard tree - The Seed of Transformation

A mustard seed is the most humble of all

So small, so unassuming

It does not know that its destiny is to be GREAT and TALL

When it fell to the ground it worried

Many birds came and ate many seeds

But this little seed had a destiny

It was trampled upon

Dirt covered it

Darkness consumed it

It wondered whether

It would have been better to have been

Eaten by the birds

Long it sat in darkness wondering

And learning patience by waiting

……………………….

Little lost orphan

Abandoned to the wild west

Strong from survival

Sleep was hard to find

When you always had to watch your back

And your front

It was tiring to look both ways while stealthily walking

Sometimes running and climbing

To get out of harms way

Many fights and accidents

There was no north star in view

There were others on the path

Somehow they fell off to one side

Or another

Following their own call

There was such a famine of kindness

It came in spurts

Friends for a season

Separated by force

More danger to come

The orphans heart was searching for home

So hard to not know where it was

“Are You My Mother?” said the baby bird

No, no, no, no

Where do I belong

But the call grew stronger

To find and not to search

But it was still out of reach

However, lest the orphan lose heart entirely

The world of black and white was shattered

By the sunrises and sunsets now appearing

This color was both fuel and fire

Another treacherous day accomplished by

Consuming the Universes’ artworks

On display for all

Seen by few

When you are full you don’t need to eat

When you are starving

You are ravenous for beauty

To color your soul

To make you powerful

To search another day

………………………………………………………………..

Then one day there is a crackling sound

So faint and totally unseen to the world

Done in darkness, underground

It is a sound not heard but felt

In the soul of the seed

Now waking up and realizing

Why all the darkness was necessary

There is a slow slithering sound

As a green shoot breaks the hardened shell

It winds and twists and unravels itself so quickly

As it slides through the ground and rises to meet the sun

Stretching and growing to the size of a small tree

What once was a speck on your finger

Now massive in comparison

…………………………………………………

The orphan comes to rest

Under the leaves of this mustard tree

And hears the story from the source

“I was once as small as a tiny dot” said the tree

“Who is speaking to me?” said the shocked orphan

“Trees can’t talk!”

Laughing the happy tree said

“You’ve N O idea what magical things can happen

So I will tell you

I was once so small and frightened

Thought I would be eaten by birds

Trampled underfoot was I

Covered in darkness I sat

Wondering why I should ever be here

If only to be so alone and afraid

Then just a little while ago

My mind was awakened by the mighty

Sound of my own growth

All this time I felt I was a mistake

An unhappy universal accident

But when I was growing so fast

So did my thoughts

I saw the mysteries of the Universe

They were revealed to me

So you must be as I

Since I was told that someone would sit under me

And I would be able to talk

I didn’t even know what that was

Until you came to me and sat under my giant leaves

My branches stretched out in worship

The light was transforming me so fast I felt such joy

It was stored up in my like a tornado

I heard a voice say to me

That ‘you will speak and she will hear you’

I’ve been waiting for you

Now let me tell you what the darkness meant

And about the work it did on my heart and mind

I thought I was abandoned but I was being built

The sorrow I felt was nothing in comparison

To the joy that I have now

I was dead but now I am transformed

I am alive as you can see

Now I am to tell you

You have been lost but will be found

You have been blind but you will see

Keep pressing on

You do not know where you are going

You will see when you arrive

That all along you were being led

Your sorrows will end

Your joy will come

Just as the sun rises and sets for you

Only you will be the sun rising

You will be the light for others

Just as I was just for you

Now I see those drops coming from your eyes

Notice I have caught everyone of them

See that leaf of mine

See the pool there

Look now into the water of your own tears

You will see your reflection”

And the mustard tree laughed a full belly laugh

As the orphan stared at her own reflection

In a pool of her own tears

She gasped as she saw others’ reflections behind her laughing with the tree

She was shocked

She cried so hard and felt such deep pain

But something was different about the pain this time

This was a pain deeper and more profound

As she watched one after another come into view behind her

She turned her head to see if they were standing there

There was no one there

In her haste she bumped the leaf and it spilled all her tears to the ground

“Oh NO!” she gasped

Fear gripped her as she felt all was lost to her again

All her tears were being consumed by the ground

The tree was silent as she sadly watched the orphan grab the dirt

And weep and cry out in anguish

Curled up in a ball time passed until the tears were no more

And the silent girl gave up the fight

The tree waited and could not speak a word that wasn’t given to it

After many hours a small voice parted the girls lips

“Why, why did you show me something

I cannot see anymore

Who were those people

They looked like me somehow

I felt I knew them but we have never met

I cannot go on now without seeing them

They looked like home to me

And now I am such a klutz

And I can’t live without them, I shall die here”

The tree was silent, no words were coming to it

The tree was sad but knew now how to wait

The girl slept for 3 days under the watchful branches of the tree

One morning the sun rose so brilliantly

It woke the weary girl from her deep slumber

Slowly she sat up and leaned breathlessly against the tree

Colors flooded the sky and she gasped

Her broken heart was beating so loudly

She could hear the sound of it

She rose up and an energy rushed through her so greatly

She ran into the field as fast as she could

She was choking and gulping in air

Heaving she stopped, her body fell limp to the ground

Brilliantly the sun rose

Her chest lifted up and rays of light beamed upon it

The warmth spread through her

She heard crackling sounds

And slithering sounds

Her mind was filled with great thoughts

She saw planets and earth and sky

She saw life form from nothing to great things

She understood things without having words

Great shoots of green vines were growing through

Her heart into the ground

And up to the sky

Reaching for the sun

She was becoming a great and powerful tree

So great and rapid was her growth

That the mightiness of her

Was seen for miles and miles

Then it stopped…

The sun was in the sky, the colors gone

They were her DNA, trapped in her cells

She waited and watched only hearing

The sound of the wind through her branches

Swaying in the breeze

PEACE spread through her core

Many sunrises and sunsets came and went

As she listened to the words of generations

Spoken only to her heart

She never slept, she did not need to sleep

She grew in understanding of all she was

Why was immaterial

She had no more questions

But she had answers

She could not understand how she knew

But she did

She waited in peace

It did not matter what for

Until one day they came

From the north, south

East and West

Owls of every kind lit in her branches

She was filled with them

Each one left her with a story

She listened with her heart and said nothing

After its story was through the owl would leave

One by one

Until they were all gone

And the sun set

The tree fell asleep in the dark

When the sun rose in the morning

The girl found herself lying in a meadow of tall grasses on a bed of moss

She rose to find herself a woman

No longer a child

No longer a tree

And she saw a path that stretched out before her

Now she set her foot to it

Not alone as she once thought

But surrounded by a pool of her ancestors

Guided by a heart and soul fueled by love

By understanding

That she did not need to know why anymore

She just knew

All Creatures GREAT and small

maxresdefault - All Creatures GREAT and small

I don’t care where you are in the food chain

Or on the social plane

From mole to elephant

From shark to sloth

There lies one truth

All desire to live free

All want to feel safe

The hierarchy of needs must be met

In order to reach the highest level

Of pure, unadulterated creativity

One’s true self uncovered

By shedding survival mode

By focusing ones attention

On that just out of reach concept

Meditating on the potential

The thought that started it off

That merged with the gut instinct

Wanting desperately to reach the pinnacle

Where it all comes together

Where the excess is shed

The fluff not needed

The purest form of thought

Of creativity not distracted by angst

Where the reason for existence

Comes into view

It takes training few will attempt

Much too easy to be complacent

How many will find their destiny

How many will leave while it is dark

To forage and find

The soul cries for renewal

It is silenced by addictions

Walls are constructed

To silence the call

Weapons are developed

To silence the prophets

Who will hear the call

Who will wake up when the night comes

Who will rise and dress

In wardrobes which define

The will of the souls intent

Held back by those who sleep

When they should wake up before the night comes

Work to find the meaning while it is day

For the light is a gift to see

The routines are set

The pace is insane

The world it whizzes by

But things will not stay the same

They will change on a dime

Leave us all strewn and trapped

We are naive and divided

As families, friends and nations

The media paints our minds

We speak no longer from the source

Time to search the heart

We are not all the same yet we are all equal

Time to find what we came here for

Set our eyes upward

Focus on what is important

Before the night comes

The missing piece

missing piece - The missing piece

You know you’ve had a gap

A limp a lisp

A deficit

Before you know it

It seems just by chance

You brush up against

A piece you did not expect

It takes a while to realize

Your walk is smoother

Your speech is clearer

Everything seems easier

What is here now

You’ve never had before

Amazing to find

You rolled right onto it

That piece you did not have

Now everything moves faster

Everything is easier

So now its time

To rock and roll

There’s so much to see

Adventures await

Come on Boots

Start walking!

A Song and a Prayer for My Family

 

IMG 4182 - A Song and a Prayer for My Family

Inspired by Sarah Hale Folger

 

 

-“Prayer for My Family”

 

It’s been the biggest part of me

The longing for home

Home is where my people are

For many years I was separated

Holidays were heartbreaking

Life was incomplete without them

God blessed me with my own

Three amazing daughters

Who have multiplied

My fifth grandchild is on the way

Four boys and a girl

I came from that equation

The only daughter

Four brothers

What a childhood I had

Like no other

Raised in a zoo of sorts

The animal kingdom

Was more comfortable for me

Than the world of humans

But now I feel the joy of knowing

Life gives you lemons

Make lemonade

And I am grateful

With All My Heart

For each and every one

Of my family and friends

Who have enriched my life

In hard times and in good

And now for the gift of

The protector of my heart

My Johnny I

My prayer is for peace and joy

For health and happiness

For more times together

For we are greater together

Than apart, way too much of that

May we find what we look for

And may the laughter increase

_____________________________________

This song above I wrote many years ago when I had 2 toddlers and someone gave me a piano for a month, then took it back. LOL! One day this song, which never comes out the same way twice came to me. My heart was reaching out in a prayer as I played – reaching towards home.. back to the State I came from. I missed them so much, but this song gave me hope. This song was recently chosen to be in the upcoming film 25 The Documentary of Tony Conigliaro, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I recorded it in one take, it is not perfect, just like me. But I give it to you if your heart needs a song today and a prayer may it give you peace and hope and comfort if you are waiting for a miracle.

The Three Little Pigs

 

609037 bigthumbnail - The Three Little Pigs

The first little pig lived in a straw house

He had no worries about anything

He wanted a quick start

He wanted to go about life

Hating to worry or fuss

Not a strategist was he

A live by the seat of your pants one he was

A shared thought by the young

Until life smacked him down a notch

When everything went up in smoke

He ran to the second little pig

Who lived in a wood house

Older he knew a few more things

Trust must be earned not given

Going only by his own understanding

He built a solid home

One he felt he could be safe in

He was confident and assured of himself

But he was not aware

That he was targeted

The ordinary would not do

He did not understand the threat

He worked hard everyday

He was not free spirited as pig #1

Instead he tried to do everything right

But he had no strategic plan

Not involved in a more global intellect

He did not anticipate

That there was an enemy

Who did not think like he did

All he knew was how he believed things were

But much to his dismay

One overcast day his little brother arrived

Frantic and unable to think clearly

Because his ideology was shattered

When his straw house was destroyed

Knocking on his brothers door

He sought protection from the wolf

Who’s aim was total annihilation

Before they knew it there was a shout

Let me in, Let me in

Impulsively they shouted a response

Not by the hair of our chinny chin chins

Quick they ran out the back door

Not even trying to save a piece of paper

So desperate were they

They arrived at their brothers home

Made of brick it was

They always thought he spent too much

On thinking through every brick

Why so excessive

Didn’t it cost too much

As they all sat by the fire

Listening to the wolf cry out

Let me in, L E T M E I N

The older assured the two

Let me pour you a glass of wine

What you do not realize

Is that he has always been here

I have been preparing for this day

Do not fear, his lungs will give out

He cannot blow this house down

I am prepared

Now you know what you did not

And now I am not alone

He will diminish

We will increase

Our three gifts will combine now

And we will build a city

Where others can flee and find refuge

One of you is free to imagine

The other can plan and build

And I can oversee this now

We will build a mighty place

To raise up the mighty and capable

I have waited so long

But here we are now

My work is done

And a new work that is ours begins

Take it to the limit

Sarah Hale Folger.300 - Take it to the limit

Come on, and take it

Just one more step

I know you can’t see

Where you are going is a mystery

And it’s been so hard

But try with all your might

For one second to believe

That I am trustworthy

To lead you on

To where you won’t need

A guide to rely on

You will have an epiphany

I know, I have seen it

In a dream I saw you there

It was like magic

When it appeared I was not seeking

It’s only my heart that knows

The love I have wakes me up

I hear the voice in my mind

Speaking words of wisdom

Painting a masterpiece

It forms where my heart and mind are fused

There is no disconnect there

So take my hand

Take them both

Just breathe and know

You can make the decision

No one is forcing you to move

You can go back

You can give up

You can curl up in a corner

Where you feel safe

Or you can take the step

Terrified you will be

But after the first one’s done

The second one will be easier

And the one after that more so

For it’s only a choice, a decision

All the pain is in indecision

That is what is crippling you now

The past is gone

Let it go without a grudge

Okay now, my hand is right here

Do you want to grasp it

If you do it means you are ready

Ready to risk it all

Ready to find what you seek

Even if you do not see it

It’s okay to hesitate

But in a moment

I will tell you to choose

NOW I will shout

And you will either whither away

Or you will grasp my hand

And everything will change forever

What will you do

cropped aw thumb 4021 - Inspired

I am at one with myself

I am a teacher

I am a listener

I am a pro-claimer

I want more

So much more

I want to follow

The path that leads me to it

I am standing on the high board

Not sure if I know how to swim

But I want to trust

That my soul knows the way

Fueled by my heritage

By generations

Of high fliers

Of risk takers

So hard to find kin these days

I now realize

That most of my life

I was lost- reaching for that something

That I could not explain

But I know it was there

Called a prodigy

Called mystical, spiritual

Called a freak

I knew I was different

Even weird

But its only because I was

And will always be me

A Folger, A Hale

From those two paths flow

Some seriously inquisitive folks

I wish I could absorb

The sound of the voices

Of my ancestors

As they tell me what they discovered

And how they found it

Time is so freakin short

I will not worry about the fact

That I will not accomplish even a portion

Of what I want to express

But I know

I live on

In my children and my grandchildren

This fact overwhelms me with joy and peace

So I will fly now

Higher and higher

Leaving behind those who once possessed me

I will forge the path

For those who are on my heels

Must keep them safe

Must inspire with hope

Give them a safe place to grow

Empower, Encourage

Yes, and A M E N

Night Musing

img 0891 - Night Musing

This is new for me

Writing while the news is on

Good test to see

Can I think and feel myself

While all the world is running a muck

The media frenzy pursues

Relentless and persistent

The narratives compete

Push and pull

Rip and tear

We are in a war for the mind

But who will take the time

To do the work to understand

What is truth

It is mingled with fiction

All a play for power

Oh the good ole days

So long forgotten

When news traveled on horses

In papers not spoken

On screens to allure

History is being rewritten

What was all the education for

It’s that time

To pay attention

To wake up and see

Things are being spun

So many just repeat

Like parrots on cue

To spread the news

True or false does not matter

I fear we may be asleep

Not realizing how crucial

These times they are

Gonna change the future

One way or another

What shall we do

Born to be Free

me8 - Born to be Free

I am breathing hard as my steps are pulling me forward

Winding through the trees my heart races

I left the path seeking adventure

Always needing to explore to find the unexpected

There is just so much more

So many live by the rules

Safe in a ritual of obsessive order

Stifled by a strict regiment

I ran out the door

Freedom is power

Determined to ignore the path

I climb over fallen branches

Arms and legs get torn in the thicket

My pace picks up as I see

Light beaming through the treetops

It is brilliant colorful and mystical

The sun is rising to greet me

I left my bed in such a rush to answer the call

How do I know these things

I am at one with the calling upon my heart

So long suppressed

So long I lived inside a birdcage

Longing to be free to fly

Free to be wild and true to myself

The woods open

Here it is

I sashay towards the meadow

I climb upon the stone wall

My heart is listening

I am filling up with power

Not of my own, but borrowed from nature

I will return again and again

The hunger will always come back

Here is where inspiration is fueled

There is a world out there calling

It’s right outside the door

It’s calling you too
