Ease into a Dream

Ease into a dream . A dream of your creation where the serendipitous moments flow and wisdom rises to the surface after  looking at the stars .  It is a beautiful  inward journey with layer upon layer of love and restlessness  ,  forgiveness  and expansiveness .

Move through a  dream where limits  , like a cage ,  are dissolved by the mind and where freedom is forever  present in  each beat of the heart .

The dream ,  pure  in it’s simplicity , and with out boundaries to war over is releasing you from  anguish .  Imagine the single deep breath that brings you into life .  It sets you free again and again .

The comfort and courage of dreaming the wild road into being will sing your heart into freedom .

Free to Roam

Free  to roam as the pieces that once baffled and brought tears of questions

roll over . Rolling over like the swells of ocean waves .

Transforming from a silent , soulful burden or thunderous , passionate outpouring

into wings open wide and strong .  Soaring beautifully with the breezes ,  playfully diving

downward then swiftly upward once again .

The heart once again free to roam .

Come Back

Come back . Come back to the trust in your heart .  Remember  a moment when your heart was repelled by hate and all you wanted was the feeling of home . The feeling of being loved in spite of hard times . The feeling that somehow it is all going to be fine .

Come back . Come back to the truth that you care . Have you been hidden from compassion because fear made you chase circles of lies  ? It’s ok to put down the fear and to feel what’s real.

Come back to all humanity and be free .

The Gift of an Eagle

Late afternoon sun inspiring a drive to the water’s edge  .  The  coolness in the air nearly stopped a walk on the beach .  It was a day that could have been early spring or  fall .  The light from the sun was diffused  by clouds and yet also giving a comforting warmth in the breezes .

I stopped at a bench and sat for a bit .  It was low tide though the water seemed to be coming back in . Small waves on top of small waves and the light shimmering and dancing along the water’s surface . Looking out and looking in as I sometimes call it .  Looking beyond the day’s events and freeing one’s mind .

It was just then that I noticed a bird sitting atop of a piling , exposed by low tide ,  out in the water .  Looking more intently  I reared that it wasn’t just any bird but rather an Eagle . I remained for a bit longer .  I began hoping that I’d get to witness his flight and just as I stood up to go this wonderful bird took flight  from his perch .

He soared with such grace and beauty .  I stood watching , taking it in , and whispering ” thank you .”

There Go Eye

Waking up amidst the moments of imaging and living ,

there go eye .

In clear sight I see the waves  and choose to roll over them

and yearn to play .

The light draws me in and lets the laughter

go and all the while I roll and roll .

Waking up amidst a dream and clear blue light .

There is  a rhythm  and it is in

your heart .
