Simply Hildegard…

On this day, September 17, Saint Hildegard of Bingen (1098-September 17, 1179) left us with an impeccable example of a life lived with direct purpose.

In her lifetime, Hildegard accomplished many things and among them, she was the following:

Abbess and foundress of a Benedictine convent
Visionary
Preacher
Musician and composer
Doctor
Pharmacist
Poet
Artist
German writer: Three books she wrote, Know thy Way, Book of the Rewards of Life,  and Book of Divine Works.
Christian mystic
Philosopher

Saint Hildegard wrote this short beautiful musical piece that truly touches the soul: Enjoy, and tell me if you think angels would sound like this beautiful voice in this video below

Oh sweet divinity,

oh delightful life,

could I carry in you the garment of light

and receive back what I lost with my first appearance!

To You I sigh and call upon all virtues!

~St. Hildegard of Bingen

go out and screw up!!

you want to write but nothing comes
so many Words running wild upstairs
come on down, all of you Words!

(before i go out and screw up!!)

It’s an order, I said

march, march, march and do hurry!
We got finger tapping, anxious eyes–waiting–
waiting for all of you, Words, to tumble across this page
What is that you say?
anthony Robbins is here? You mean, the author of the great book, Awaken the Giant Within/actor/professional speaker/peak performance coach (whatever that is)–is really here??

Awaken The Giant Within, Weekly Image of Life, poetry,writing,author,life,

Well, Words, do take your time coming down–let the master Robbin speak:

“Live life fully while you’re here.
Experience everything.
Take care of yourself and your friends.
Have fun, be crazy, be weird.
Go out and screw up!!
You’re going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process…”

wait, don’t go out and screw up just yet, there’s more of motivational speaker anthony Robbins below…

but, Oh, my shy little Words, see how you must work?

QUICK!!

 Come down and have FuN UnDeR the SuN

Let go of your ego and be carefree and remember mr. Robbins is still here, so listen…

“Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes:
find the cause of your problems and eliminate it.
Don’t try to perfect;
just be an excellent example of being human.”
~anthony Robbins

when Words seem distant and far away

why not let your hair down

and simply write

all those reluctant Words you hold back

forget all writing rules just for a minute and let yourself

GO under the sun— with your Words– and have some fun

then… Go out and screw up...

                     … just be an excellent example of being human.

me?  i’m just having some fun today being crazy and weird

hey, i’m only human, right?
