I was inspired by this quote…
“I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in the darkness, the astonishing light of your own being.” -Hafiz.
we let the light in and love embodies us emanating through our skin…
we let the light in and as we glow the darkness slowly dims…
we let the light in and grace abounds emerging from within…
we let the light in and faith grows silencing the relentless din…
It’s with radiance, we gradually re-emerge,
remembering that it’s our light that lights the world…
“Draw alongside the silence of stone
Until its calmness can claim you.” ― John O’Donohue
when words bubble up
from streams of consciousness I am aware of their magic. I feel blessed by an affinity to light. but sometimes I get plugged up with mediocrity and shallowness, unable to call up the magic. Unfavored in my endeavors to rekindle prose, I become frightened that the words will never return. I look into my abyss of madness and my senses remind me that light is always present.
It’s my connection to the mystical
my connection to grace and love it’s a supernatural resonance that springs forth from my own darkness and decorates these pages with joy. I call it “soul speak”
flowers bowed in worship
to the rain gods that brought them back to life, their face softly glowing in the morning light. gazing into the sun they grow into blushing beauties unable to live and be abundant without the energy of light so they let it in…
We had a heatwave this past weekend and no flowers budded on this bush for a while. It was predicted to be 38 C but luckily we live near the coast and we had a blanket of sea mist keeping us cool.
“I am in the house of mercy and my heart is a place of prayer.”
― Mawlana Jalal-al-Din Rumi
I pray for
eyes to be open minds to be freed peace to surround us and love to intercede. for faith to be present joy to be real grace to be abundant and our broken world to heal…
“When you perceive another in love, they are changed by that act.”
-The Guides through Paul Selig
let’s become the presence of celebration
and even when emotions are strained and we are merged with pain meet me there, among the desolation. Let’s pick up our broken pieces together.
I will bring my offerings as human as I am
deeply flawed, yet illuminated by the radiance of stardust…
let’s gather again and shout out long stories
that require presence, our unfinished confessions our wild imaginations.
let’s be whimsical
and listen intently to cicadas at twilight and begin again to softly glow with the landscape..
let’s put the world on hold
and call up who we were before the foundation of the earth! Where the shores of tomorrow are unafraid and we only see through the eyes of unconditional love…
let’s re-discover who we are and what we are doing here,
as our vain opinions scatter like dust and our true selves rise like the dawn…
i let the light in
i let it dance i let it touch my skin… as it sparkles it illuminates my life reminding me that i too am divine…
Meet me at a place of love,
a reunion, where hearts need no words to speak and grace is measureless…
let’s chant together sweet melodies
that release us from our dark obsessions.
Let’s go where flower beds are gentle
and lands grow fertile with joy…
where dance is everlasting
and our anthems are heard among the constellations.
