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 .”

Trusting the Uncertainty

Early evening standing near the shore and watching the water rolling in .  It feels like an act of witnessing , simply witnessing  , on this very fine night .  Occasional  bits of life  from the Sea or man left on the sand .  Will it be natural or will it be a harm ?

Early evening standing near the shore , feeling the strength of the Sea , and inviting myself to step back from the outer bits of life that call to  us to be small . There is freedom in a roar and peace as it recedes .

Not knowing what will be discovered as the depths of the living spirit rise to the surface but giving the uncertainty to trust is freedom as well . It is wise  to move towards the unknowing since that is where the boundaries are released and heartfelt exploration takes place .
