I release these pieces having held and honored and transformed each one into a prayer in my heart. I know they belong not only to me, but to all of us. And so I send this message in a bottle back to where I found it — knowing whatever returns will come freely, as a gift from a deeper me. Advertisements
I found it didn’t matter so much just how things played out on the surface. The wholeness of the world around me and within never left my side — ever. It changed form. At times I seemed to be alone. But if I got really honest and brave enough to look, there was always some connection — somewhere. There were times when the contrast of connection and the disconnect was too much to hold all […]
I learned to use all that had once seemed unwanted and painful in my experiences and inner heart. I found there was tenderness and connection and meaning hidden as treasures to be found. And so I vowed to hold and honor and set down all of it — until I could hear my own quiet prayers more clearly. It wasn’t always comfortable. But it was always tender.
I found all things responded to being gently held… and gently set down.
I found a lightness I had forgotten and remembered somewhere along the way. I was thankful for all that had led me around and through to that exact point — though I could offer it no words. I was thankful to know we were all evolving. I was honored to continue on — to focus a little more sweetly on where we were going. I knew it was a really tender place. And I knew […]

There was a natural reverence for my own journey and for others. Prayers became more wordless as I began to trust the one continuous quiet prayer I once turned away because the contrast had seemed […]
Life became the willingness to notice my own soul voice behind everything, to allow myself to be connected with my heart — and to reflect a little more love.
I found my deepest connection in my own heart and in the hearts of others who dared to find space to hear and follow their own true voices. I found no substitute for this sacred space. No treasure or achievement or projection fulfilled ever came close. No amount of approval ever tasted as sweet. There was no seeking for it and no grasping when it appeared. There was only love.
Out of my deepest silent prayer, my true voice called out to be heard. Its words were clear and true and led safely back to the silence within my own deepest heart.
I honor each part of me and of you that dared to find the way back to our hearts. Having been led by a whisper of a love from which we felt disconnected, we began and we continued on. We spoke gently because the delicate nature of healing hearts was sensed. We found strength in the authentic connection with each other and in our ability to trust in our highest calling and deepest truth when […]
