Benediction

“With stillness comes the benediction of Peace.”
― Eckhart TolleA New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose

pretence

He dismantled my ego
and carved out my pretence,
renewed my sense of holiness,
decreed that i am blessed!

He embraced me with compassion,
another way of seeing,
freed me from compulsions,
then repose engulfed my being!

Made powerless through adversity,
i was calmed in the storm,
i grew to love my sacredness,
and silence my outer form!

He wrapped me in His kindness,
with joy beyond my words,
quietened my ranting,
until stillness was all i heard………..

Whispers from on high

“It’s never too late to have a happy childhood.”
― Tom RobbinsStill Life with Woodpecker

caught up

i’m caught up in the moment,
captured by the song,
of effervescent laughter
a place where i belong.

within the fragrant cosmos,
whispers on the breeze,
running through the forests
trying to live in ease.

letting the stars contain me
on tranquil moonlit nights,
singing with cycadas
in the glow of candlelight.

connected to creation,
of velvet skies above,
i hear the ocean breathing
and know that i’m enough.

Rewriting Melodies

“You must learn one thing.
The world was made to be free in.
Give up all the other worlds
Except the one in which you belong.”
― David Whyte

timeless limits
Detached from worldly substance,
she felt a sense of loss.
She scrambled through the rubble
of all that had been false.
On relinquishing the bonds,
of distorted entities,
she moved towards the center,
into truthful destiny.
She tore the grubby garments
from her misshapen image,
and wrapped herself in cleansing light,
beyond timeless limits.
She released destructive personas
that did not belong,
and began to rewrite melodies
of her Anima’s song.
The stillness in her essence
was unveiled without form.
She danced with boundless gratitude
onto pathways,
transformed.

a sea of holy breath

sea of holy breath

“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have.”
― Eckhart TolleThe Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

if i’m in a sea
it’s a sea of holy breath
an ocean of translucent love..
gossamer winds
of synchronicity
revive me..
benevolence pours over me
and i’m infused with
transforming rain..
comforting mists
of belonging
envelope me in tranquility..
i inhale
and i am inhaled..
surrounded by acceptance..
light infiltrates
and resonates..
i wallow in kindness
and compassion…..

Communion with the Divine

I decided to challenge myself to 24 hours without complaining!
communion with the divine

“If you knew who walked beside you at all times, on the path that you have chosen, you could never experience fear or doubt again.”
― Wayne W. Dyer

In my soul,
I found a place,
my heart knows
its resonance.
Embedded in
sacred atmosphere,
a love beyond
imagination.
Stars will shine,
seas will surge,
and as long as there’s a pull
on the Earth,
I know I am alive
to fulfil the applause
of heaven.
Distilled by shades
of experience,
shadows make peace
with the night.
I’m immersed in tranquil
pleasures,
and delighted by
the moon’s soft glow.
Shaped in the image of glory
and sprinkled with
a little stardust.
I’m made
for communion
with the Divine.

Contemplation

“The morning glories and the sunflowers turn naturally toward the light, but we have to be taught, it seems.”
― Richard Rohr

 

contemplationEnclosed in ethereal light,
captivated by mists
of timeless consciousness,
she beckoned repose
to stay the course.
She dreamt of things,
like purple rain,
daisy chains
and walks in the viridian forests.
She implored the shadows
to retreat,
into the undergrowth
of forgetfulness.
At times she sojourned
in wordless wonder.
Clarifying meaning
was hard to speak in words.
When life was burdensome,
and chaos
perforated
the realm of her mind,
she escaped into silence.
She beheld snapdragons
and seagulls in formation,
the simpler things.
Things that brought her back
to contemplation……
