I feel like I have more than usual on my mind these days–mostly questions, hypotheticals, and the most toxic of all, “what-ifs” swirling around my brain.

Last night as I was falling asleep, I had one of those thought/dreams that was just one single line ringing out as clearly as if someone had set an iPod alarm to go off to the middle of the famous song–“There will be an answer, let it be.”

So in case you are in some sort of limbo today, trying to un-swirl the questions, the hypotheticals, and the “what-ifs” of life, here are some words of wisdom to whisper to yourself:

Let It Be
By The Beatles

When I find myself in times of trouble, mother Mary comes to me,
speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me,
speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be.
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

And when the broken-hearted people living in the world agree,
there will be an answer, let it be.
For though they may be parted there is still a chance that they will see,
there will be an answer. let it be.

Let it be, let it be, …..

And when the night is cloudy, there is still a light, that shines on me,
shine until tomorrow, let it be.
I wake up to the sound of music, mother Mary comes to me,
speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

Let it be, let it be, …..

And just because it’s fun, watch the companion video below from some Sesame Street friends, “The Beetles.”  Letter B!

Are you a frustrated dreamer? I know I am. I often wake up with fragments of scenes echoing in my mind that seem really meaningful–but then I leap out of bed, start my morning routine, and in seconds they’re gone. I want to linger in that realm and tap into the guidance and insight rising […]

Because I lack an engineering degree and don’t understand why we can’t just stop this thing NOW with a 10-ton wad of gum or giant boulder or massive Q-tip, I’ll share more spiritual wisdom from elders.

“Worry is a prayer for something you don’t want.” – Sharon Gannon I love that. The other day someone expressed concern about my excessive worrying habit, and I’ve been contemplating on it ever since. Doing my best to actually contemplate, rather than worry. I’ve been on a renewed Gilmore Girls binge lately and last night as Lorelai, […]
