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.

Forever Connected

Quieting June 7, 2017

There was

comfort in knowing

I was deeply connected

with my heart.

Things that once

caused me to

feel lost

now reinforced

the feeling of

inner connectedness.

Life around me

began to reflect

a deeper kind

of peace.

But it was

the feeling of being

forever connected

within

that gently carried me

as I continued on.

Always

Unsorted December 8, 2016

This pain

you feel

is not separate

from the pain of

the world.

But it does not

define who or what

or where you are.

You must keep

searching.

Don’t look only

for relief

or some explanation

or label

to describe

what is on the surface.

Don’t look

to the world

for this.

You may find

these kinds

of answers.

But they will be

surface answers.

Look deeper.

Keep searching

until your heart

begins to speak

louder.

Always listen

to your heart,

even if it seems

so subtle that you

have to strain

just to feel some kind

of faint whisper.

It will

become louder.

May it lead you

always.

Amen.

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

circumstances

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.

A Little at a Time

Continuing On, Unsorted October 6, 2016

It became increasingly helpful

to meet life

from a gentler place.

And so I held

my ground within

my heart —

remembering how

I had so delicately

held and let go

of all that crossed

my path

as I found my way

to this position —

letting go of all

I couldn’t sort out

all at once —

noticing as

pieces came together —

a little at a time —

naturally —

without my

over-thinking

and doing.

And with this same

natural motion,

I continued on.

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.
