Transformed

I honor each

heart that has

shown up

to find its own

true voice

at a time

when so much

is being

transformed.

I honor the sacred

journey each one

must travel

alone

in order

to come together

in a new way.

I honor those

who hold a space

for me

to sort through

all that is in need

of sorting.

I honor

this journey

in my own heart.

And I hold this space

for those

just beginning.

Amen

Gentle Loving Strength

Thank you

for the ability

to be gentle and loving

and the strength

to go against

what we must —

to follow

our own hearts.

Remind us of the beauty

that comes out of

living from a place

of true compassion.

Give us courage

to find our own

inner space

and to honor

this space in others —

to keep returning

and living

from here —

that we may

truly love.

Amen
