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 —

remembering

the tenderness

and honor

in being a part

of this continuing

mystery

and of this great

love.

Amen

Naturally

There was something

quietly satisfying

in showing up

without a mask,

without the constant

narrating mind.

Perceiving became

observing

and honoring

from a little higher

place.

Actions happened

naturally.

But it was the

space,

both expanding

outward

and anchoring me

in that moment,

that pulled me

ever so gently

toward my next needed

step.

Forever

I return

in stillness

and in honor

of what is always

and only

right here,

seemingly distant,

yet instantly close —

so blindingly beautiful

that I would sit

forever —

just to hear

one more sweet whisper

of truth.

— Laurie, What’s Right Here

Just for a Moment

Just for a moment,

let’s hold what is

most true.

Let’s dust off those

wordless prayers

we keep tucked away

and raise them up —

past all the noise

on the surface

to their true place —

not to reach some

distant goal,

but just to meet,

just for a moment,

in the heart.

Amen

With Love

Help me to hold

what is here

with love —

to meet this moment

with honor

and grace,

the kind of grace

that allows

all that has been

too painful

or too much

to naturally transform itself

back into

its purest form.

Amen
