Hidden Safely Beyond

Softening December 3, 2017

It was comforting

to find

that somewhere

hidden safely beyond

whatever appeared

was something

a little purer.

It just took a moment

to adjust

to being without

so many added

layers of thought.

Beyond

Softening November 3, 2017

There was a settling

down

into my heart

that continued to

deepen.

I began to understand

beyond thinking

and listen beyond

words.

I learned to hold

my own shadows

and light —

letting go of ideas

held too tightly

in exchange for

the lightness

of compassion for

myself and others

and the renewed strength

to continue on

as a clearer reflection

of my own quiet

prayer.

Unafraid

Continuing On, Softening October 21, 2017

During times

of great shifting,

when emotions were

intense

and bodies

and minds tired

most easily

with each added thought

and moment of

learning,

I found it was

possible to return

my focus

to the stillness

within

and count every

single piece of

wisdom gained as valuable —

while being willing

to hold it

lightly —

remaining unafraid

to release all

into the creative space

I learned to

embrace again

and again,

each time a little more

completely,

as I continued on.

Softening

From A Quiet Prayer, Softening, What's Right Here August 2, 2017

There was a

softening

of the story

on the surface,

a gentle resetting.

The default emotion

become one of

peace,

the very thing

my heart had

longed for

and called me to.

There was a more

natural connection

with all of life,

a gentle unfolding

of the quiet prayer

within my heart.

Silent pauses became

welcome parts

of the relaxation into

a gentler way

of being.

Into Wholeness

Softening, Unsorted October 2, 2016

I began to notice

a natural softening

in myself and others

as I aligned to my own

true essence —

a subtle shifting

that bypassed

the need to sort out

every personal flaw

and pattern.

There was a sense

of relief

after having struggled

and identified ourselves

with the parts

that were evolving —

an embracing —

a relaxing into

our own inherent wholeness.
