You walk out through the forest, along the trail. Your breath becomes soft and natural, your mind relaxes and opens.
Beauty visits and touches you in the flitting of a butterfly, the unfurling leaf and the songbirds voice.
You know peace and remember, this is life and I belong.
The wind caresses your skin and your skin opens and sighs. The light dances through the leaves and your eyes twinkle and enjoy.
Your energy expands without effort and you sense the whole landscape aware of you too. The strength and deep roots of the elder tree call you to come and rest here a moment and you sit and relax and remember, this is life and I am home.
Your attention is captured by the wonder of ordinary magic and medicine
and you remember there is depth, meaning, significance and belonging here.
This is life and I belong here.
The sounds of the tide calls your name and sings to your deep places of motion, mystery and nourishment,
and you rest here in this life where you belong.
The wind and the water, the tree and the rocks, the butterfly and birds all sense your presence and you open and ask them to remember for you, for you too have a magic and a medicine and it is home and belongs inside of you.
In Paradise Glade
And out upon the world i gaze
Seeing all forms of expression
Enlivened and acting out
The fear-full dance, of blame and resistance
The ego dance, of how do i look
The grasping at fame, fortune, or perceived power (force)
The innocents gaze of wonder
The humble bow upon the earth
The compassionate heart asks how may i help
The separated souls seek fulfillment
Upon the riches of another
Never availing themselves of their own treasure’s within
The united souls seek service
For the riches are unveiled
Always available to the splendor of Spirit
All together are we
In this rich field
Diverse and spectacular
The fear and the ego
Dance side by side
With the sacred and profound
Within and without
The journey undulates
As creation rises in an unstoppable dance
We make space in the centre
Of our hearts and our minds
In the centre of the earth and the centre of the galaxy
The centre is the emptiness
Of majesty and mysteryThe everything and no thing
The centre is our home
The centre is our domain
The centre is us
Again and again
Come rest yourself here
Upon the hearth of your heart
Deep in the centre of the sacred temple
Release your how do i look
Your what can i gain?
And find instead, the treasure within
The truth is unveiled
In the absence of formula
In the humility and surrender
The splendor expands
Lets now remember
Our sacred promises made
From our soul to our heart
In a paradise glade
Rest here in your truth
Authentic and real
The realized remember
The truth, it is whole
Pray for our families
Who choose separation
For in a blink of an eye
They too will remember
Yet move on ahead
With roots and the sun
From the paradise glade
Activate and enliven
Your sacred souls promise
Be the architect of your joy
In this domain of the all
Keep precious and attend
To your treasures within
For they are gifts that you were entrusted
From the heart of Creator
Open your wings, and soar with your voice
The angels do call, for the note that is yours
Your soul made a promise, to sing and to dance
And Creator awaits, a promise full filled
Join with your family, ready to soar
Together we create a thermal of joy
In infinite wonder, in form and in matter
It matters to Creator, the song you do sing
Polish and shine, the jewel in your centre
A gift of your own, sacred beloved
A gathering of treasures, of which you are One
Amidst the creation, of paradise glade.
The long languid rays of light
low on the horizon
reach directly into my heart
piercing yet gentle
they have hit the mark
colors swarming and undulating in the sky
beauty and a pensiveness of impending change
from and to
have lighted inside of me
the day equal to the night
the place of balance and alignment
yet the signal
a marker of change
Gramma Moon perfect tonight
half away dark in the mystery
half in full lit splendor
she watches me
dizzy and calm
dawn and dusk
north and south
lunar eclipse solar eclipse
allies and guardians
standing at the portal
inviting us into the bridge
all balls in the air
swirling around me
i crave the easy chair
cup in hand
watching the dance of color and
letting the light come, come in here
all is in motion
and i am alert, awake and attentive
letting the divine darkness come in, come in here
yet craving too the balance point in the centre signal of immanent change…where i wonder…
human response of resistance, grief and story making
soul full response of surrender and embracing
swirling energies and centre in the middle
together two qualities live here in me now
dropping down and in
feel it all… feeling… feeling
moving in oceans waves of power and shapeshifting
grace in the subtlest levels
agh, so motion and aligning are conspiring
partnering on our behalf
…does it really matter
i am awake and alert
allowing the light to come in
come in deep to me here
i am awake and alert
allowing the mystery to come in
come in deep to me here
motion and change and my human resistance steps on the evolutionary brake
even as my soul laughs out loud with glee and leaps on the gas pedal
prayers taken and swirled out of reach
spread in all directions at once
all control whisked out of our hands
the salt air washing on my face
hair blowing in the breeze
white froth swallows my feet
the great mystery takes our prayers and howls in delight
is balanced with love and beauty
the adventure is afoot
in the land of i don’t know
here we go
and so it is
whatever & wherever it is….. it is now
I AM ROCK
I am woman and rock, I am water and air.
I am your sister, your friend, and the woman on the street.
I am seer and quester, finder and creator.
I am listener and companion. I am movement and stillness, wandering and rooted.
I am with you and alone, I am you and not you.
I am daughter of the sun, granddaughter of the stars, and child of Pachamama.
I am shaping and unraveling. I am creating and contemplating.
I am wise and evolving. I am ancient and just beginning.
I am mystery and manifestation. I am expression and patience.
I am mother of human girl and mother of ceremony. I am mother of life and mothered by life.
I am mountain and air. I am starlight on the dew and sparkle in my eye.
I am compassion and process. I am empty and full. I am the earth and the stars.
I am the woman and the mystery. I am your sister and your friend.
I am here for love.
