Almost Forgotten

From A Quiet Prayer November 2, 2016

And so I vowed

to go to the

very center of

my heart,

to do whatever

was required,

not knowing

what I would find

or if I would ever

make my way back,

no longer waiting

for relief

or healing

from outside of me —

reaching only

for the faint whispers

from a place

almost forgotten..

The Quieting

Quieting October 17, 2016

The quieting

continued to deepen.

Outer and inner experiences

were no longer seen

as obstacles,

but as life simply

showing up

as I had witnessed

my own self

showing up

to meet life.

And in this quieting,

there was often

sadness —

as again and again,

I offered up

my whole self

to something other than

what my mind imagined

life to be.

But there was always

great peace.

This Natural Rhythm

Unsorted October 10, 2016

I found there is

a natural rhythm

of life,

one we lose touch with

when we find ourselves

living in our thoughts

or trying to create

just the right


or feeling state —

trying to figure out

or find

something to make

this life

more predictable

so that it all makes

some kind of sense.

But I found the deepest

kind of peace

in returning to this

most natural rhythm

of life.

And so I allow

my words

to find their own way —

that they might

reflect this natural rhythm

and remind us

what it feels like

to be alive and free.

Into My Heart

Continuing On September 28, 2016

I found myself within

a beautiful motion

of holding

and letting go,

allowing attention

to land

where it pleased,

sometimes pausing —

always continuing —

unattached to labels

or the need to

connect all of the dots

too soon —

holding and honoring

all that crossed

my path

as this most natural

rhythm began to feel

more and more

like home —

letting go into

my own deepest heart.
