Out of Emptiness

Tenderness March 15, 2019

And so I learned

to soothe frightened parts

of me

through my willingness

to face each moment

as it came,

knowing at any point

I could stop and gather words

out of emptiness

to soothe what couldn’t be

reached in any other way.

Within the Stillness of My Self

Tenderness April 30, 2018

There was a continuous movement within the stillness of my true Self. It was the softening of all parts of me that had felt separate and lost in repetitive cycles of emotional pain.

I had reached the place of enough is enough and decided to find my way to tenderness. Tenderness came out of the realization I was reliving the exact same old pain I had vowed to never feel again. It came out of the last bit of gathered strength to try one more time to hold and honor it instead.

With Love

What's Right Here July 7, 2017

I hold

what is here

with love —

the natural unfolding,

this clear space,

the reverence —

all of this,

including all that is

painful and confusing.

Even as I feel

the shifting ground

beneath me,

I accept and love

all of it

as it is —

right here.

I know these arms

have held

the indescribable pain

of separateness,

reaching inward

and through —

daring to hold

ALL of the pieces

of their own

shattered heart

even before it was

clear they were

not broken —

because somewhere,

underneath the confusion,

a quiet prayer was

whispered.

Into Wholeness

Reflections February 15, 2017

I found

hidden clues

about myself

and how to proceed

in the symptoms

and those annoying

situations I found

myself in —

the ones I had

interpreted

as simply something

to avoid

at all cost.

I found that by

opening to my own

hidden insights,

I was able to move

more fully

into wholeness.
