Beth Chapman was born in the Deep South. At fifty-seven, the mountains of southern Colorado called her to come and listen. Beth left her degrees and work to take time to listen to her heart. With her little four-legged angel, Dibley, she wanders the mountain paths.

It has been a most difficult journey. Beth often muses that we are not raised to listen to our own voice. We are not raised to simply stop and listen to silence. We are not raised to ask what we know is true. That has been her journey. At sixty now, the journey continues every morning as she realizes she has been gifted another day to live a life alive.

An impermanent coda

[image error]

Spring reminds us of the impermanence of winter. Summer will remind us of the impermanence of spring. A full moon rises in a cloudless sky. Clouds remind us of the impermanence of a cloudless night.


The musical term da capo sends the score back to the beginning. When the musician then reaches the first coda symbol, they jump to the second coda which will take them to the final sect...

To recognize resistance

That says it all. So pertinent today. Not to point to others. To recognize in me. No pointing. Starts and ends with me.

You can and I can do it

Sometimes you just need someone to say they believe. Sometimes you just need someone to remind you of what you knew and know. Simply put and easy to read. An easy conversation but if you listen and do it, easy becomes a nuclear

Mary Oliver
“When it’s over, I want to say: all my life
I was a bride married to amazement.
I was a bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.

When it’s over, I don’t want to wonder
if I have made of my life something particular, and real.
I don’t want to find myself sighing and frightened
or full of argument.

I don’t want to end up simply having visited this world.”
Mary Oliver, New and Selected Poems, Volume One

“It is after days of
Soaking in these downpours
That the land can drink in
The bounty,
That the bejeweled trees can
Accept nature’s offering.
While the dewy greens are
Very pretty, and the
Running streams make the most
Gentle trickling sounds
There is no healing until the
Water is absorbed.”

Sharon Salzberg
“In one of the verses of Lal Ded, or Lalla, a fourteenth-century mystic from Kashmir, Lalla says: “At the end of a crazy-moon night the love of God rose. I said “It’s me, Lalla.”
“It’s me, Lalla,” becomes “It’s me…whoever you are,” proclaiming that we no longer stand on the sidelines but are leaping directly into the center of our lives, our truth, our full potential. No one can take that leap for us; and no one has to. This is our journey of faith.”
Sharon Salzberg, Faith: Trusting Your Own Deepest Experience

“Become the person of no rank. Become the noble soul, and live in this awakened way, not imitating anyone. Whatever the circumstances your life asks of you, respond to them in your own individual Zen-spirited way. Don't waste any time trying to be someone else...We are not here to have someone else's experience. We are here to have our own vivid experience. So please don't cling to yesterday, to what happened, to what didn't happen. And do not judge today by yesterday. Let us just live today to the fullest! Moment after moment, each sitting is the only sitting.”
