Why are you here?

Via on Jan 29, 2011

Listening to the mid morning birds
sing in the tree outside my window,
why not stop and vow to nature,
the Earth, and the Universe.

Why not take a deep breath,
stretch, take another deep full inhale,
fill the lungs with oxygen,
let it go all the way to my head,
where I can stop to feel its expansion,
until there is no better way to come out from it
than a beautiful relaxing exhale.

Why not play some good music,
like Mozart, or Deepak Chopra station at Pandora.com
and inspire yourself with beauty all around you,
so then you can give the same beauty to others.

Why not be in the garden of your soul…
and blossom.
Bloom in peace.

Why not dance in the middle
of your everything.

Why not fall in love
and then feel in love…so you can understand it
and love others without the red turmoil
of dividing noise in fake hearts of indulge
in the desire of the senses.
Why not fall free into the love wave
that waters the Universe.

Then come back to silence.
Why not surrender into the silence…and listen.
Listen to every single frequency
that surrounds your hearing space.
Learn to discriminate between what is and what else.
Be light and be good company…
invite spiritual growth.

The answer is Why are you here?

The question only you know it.

light love with metta.


About Yesica Pineda

My name is Yésica Pineda-Moreno, though some people call me Yeye. I was born and raised in Mexico City. My mom and dad are wonderful people who raised me to believe that loving-kindness, peace of body, mind and soul ~ real happiness ~ are the only worthwhile goals in life, the rest is just history. At the age of 20, I was chosen a Mexican Musical Talent (Valores Juveniles = American Idol) between thousands of young people in the country. Such opportunity gave me the chance to travel to The United States and meet incredible famous people from whom I've learned plenty about the hard work involved in the public life and the challenges it represents to our spiritual growth. I recorded my solo album with 10 time’s Grammy winner engineer Rafa Sardina rafasardina.com, and the talented songwriter Rafa Esparza-Ruiz. You can find it in any digital store by searching "Yeye Organic Pop". When I thought there was nothing else to be achieved, I found Yoga, or Yoga found me. In 2000, I started training with Bryan Kest and educated myself in his school of Power Yoga, which eventually led me to the practice of Vipassana meditation with teacher S.N.Goenka dhamma.org, training which I consider my foundation. For more information about my Yoga Practice visit yogichocolate.com My current music project is called Planetary Moods ~ Pop Sanskrit and the exploration of different frequencies resonance. You can hear my music on on myspace Listen at our website Planetary Moods.

  1. This is another beautiful prose-poem, Yesica, so poetic, in fact, that I recommend you reformat it in verse. I've sent you my suggested reformatting on Facebook. See if you like it.
