From Here

And so the decision was made

to continue on.

There was no room

in that moment

for regret or any other

cluttering thought.

There was silent understanding

in each open heart

that the time had come

to listen a little more deeply

and speak a little more

intently from here.


With an Open Heart

Lead me gently

as I continue on.

Help me to show up

in each moment

with an open heart —

to experience what is

here —

knowing the connection

with my own

inner healer

in each moment —

trusting the ultimate

care of others

to their own —


the tenderness

and honor

in being a part

of this continuing


and of this great




There was something

quietly satisfying

in showing up

without a mask,

without the constant

narrating mind.

Perceiving became


and honoring

from a little higher


Actions happened


But it was the


both expanding


and anchoring me

in that moment,

that pulled me

ever so gently

toward my next needed


Into My Heart

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.

As It Is

This peace comes

from the courage

to be present

right here –

where there are

many thoughts

and many distractions –

where there is acceptance

of all of this,

where all is surrounded

in love,

mixed up together –

somehow, mysteriously


beautiful as it is.
