A Sacred Journey

Tenderness March 14, 2019

After a little while,

I caught on that this

human experience was in fact

a sacred journey.

And so I began to take notes —

connecting the person

to a more expanded,

formless self —

comforting and guiding —

lighting my path

as it unfolded —

navigating through contrast —

following what felt most true —

listening and feeling my way

into my deepest heart.

Softening

Softening March 2, 2018

It took a little practice, but I learned to remain in my heart. I learned to honor all that was painful while holding space for tenderness.

I began to sink into my heart a little more each time I remembered I had the option to remain there.  Experiences that seemed unhealable at first glance began to reflect the softening in my own heart.

Whatever Remained

Reflections February 3, 2018

One day I realized the peace I felt had come out of the quiet moments, the insights that came that couldn’t be shared or explained. It had come out of whatever remained of the grief of being within a separate self and the grace of having found my way back to my whole heart.

It was the non-verbal kind of feeling my way through life that had saved me. It was the wisdom beyond stories and questions and answers I found in the silent spaces within that nothing else could reach.

It came out of the willingness to wait forever for words to form and outer forms to match the love I knew in my heart.
