Space for Tenderness

Tenderness April 24, 2019

I began to practice allowing.

It no longer occured to me

to try to force anything.

Instead I began to find

quiet joy in being

the space

for pieces come together

and in being in

a world in constant transition

into tenderness.

Somehow

Within the Mystery April 15, 2019

For a while

it seemed something had

gone terribly wrong.

I had lived through

much contrast and

overcome many challenges.

And yet part of me still felt unsafe

as the contrast continued.

Somehow, just like the very first time

I dared to stop and allow

all of the pieces I had been holding

a little too tightly

to fall around me,

I found the courage again

to gather up the pieces

and sink a little more deeply

into my heart —

taking one more step

into tenderness.

A Little at a Time

Soothing March 20, 2019

Again and again

I found my way back to my heart,

it was a relief

to be free of all that had

seemed like too much.

I came to recognize the feeling

of  too much

as a sign I had attached

somewhere other than my heart.

Again and again,

I found my way to

the present moment

and gently reconnected

with my heart —

refocusing on each moment

as it unfolded —

regaining my trust in life

a little at a time.

This Space Within My Heart

Soothing March 16, 2019

It made no difference

how many times I seemed

to lose my footing.

It didn’t matter how many

times I fell.

After a while,

I understood I could

always find my way again.

After a while, I realized

I was, in fact,

this space within my heart.

I came to understand I had

survived something difficult

and landed in a lower vibration —

for a while

where the sound of my soul

seemed faint.

But I could find my way

again.

For Just a Moment

Soothing March 16, 2019

It took a little bit of courage

allowing softer thoughts to form —

landing on a surprisingly comforting

background of emptiness —

flowing effortlessly,

drifting a little more deeply

into my deepest heart.

Maybe it was the gentle rhythm

I had allowed myself to feel

once again,

for just a moment,

or a word formed of this

same emptiness

allowed to echo even more  —

somehow, gently,

against all odds,

from this deeper space

within.

Just Enough

Quieting, Unsorted March 15, 2019

I found journies of the heart

can be difficult.

It was easy to become

discouraged and a little more

difficult to feel my way forward

and through leftover debris from

early challenges

and to become willing to stand

alone with God.

Each time I felt I couldn’t take

another step,

life somehow showed

just enough tenderness

to inspire one more.
