Hidden Safely Within

Quieting

Again and again, I chose to find my way back to the silent spaces my mind once tried to escape. It was a gentle turning away from the constant inner chatter and outer struggles of mind — a sinking down into my heart — where mind, joined with heart, was able to reflect the quiet prayer of a love hidden safely within.

A State of Prayer

Unfolding

There were times when I sensed listening for inner resonance and trusting the quiet whisper of truth in each moment had become a little more important. I had learned the importance of stopping to listen to life and gained a respect for its mystery, but it was during these times when I was called more deeply within that I began to notice just how much I could soften my experience in the world and be […]

I found that no matter what, I was a flexible, creative, evolving being. I could let go of thoughts and stories, while honoring all that had brought me to each new moment.

I found it wasn’t so much that I was broken. It was that I felt disconnected from my own true voice — lost in an ocean of thoughts and shoulds. But there was a subtler knowing from a little deeper place that never gave up hope.

Along the Way

I found it was possible to find our way back to our hearts. I found that, for every single thing I gave up along the way, for every broken dream and every person I couldn’t reach, there was an expansion of the tender space I had come to know as the source of true peace, connection, and happiness.

Softened

In this softened light and standing firmly in my heart, I thought just maybe being brave meant stepping back to peek behind what seemed to be so shattered. Perhaps we weren’t as broken, good or bad or disconnected as our minds had made us out to be.
