From Dust


seeking treasure

Today is Ash Wednesday. We can remember that we came from dust, and will go back to dust.

It’s also the beginning of Lent.

It’s time…to see what needs to shift.

Here’s a meditation by Virginia Satir from her book Meditations and Inspirations.

Being Grounded

Go deep inside yourself

Find that treasure that

is known by your name.

Look at this treasure

Look at the resources

that are universal.

You have them all.

You can see









To sort–the ability to

let go of that which once fit

but no longer does, and

see clearly what

fits now.

Now say to yourself,

“I am able,

I can do this.

I have the energy through my

groundedness, my relationship to the heavens,

and my interconnectedness with others.

I am able.”

Emendemus in melius–Morales

Remember that we are dust…and be grounded.

Be well, and at peace,
