At first signs of Restlessness

The comforts of familiarity begin turning away and deep , long breaths move in to stay .  The sky is where my eyes turn to for a sense of endless possibilities and are covered with smoke now and  it has shut us in .

The still waters don’t bring peace but the roaring , wildness of the ocean calm the spirit and bring dreams to light  . There is peace already  living in each breath and each breath is as dear as old friends .

At first signs of restlessness …Remember to think and  to go through those doubts and then you’ll  arrive somewhere new . And remember to hear the feelings without making them shout.  Splendidness  is everywhere just maybe not your particular type .  And your particular type will have your heart singing . Twinkling eyes , singing in your heart  and twirling with  laughter ….

That is where  my restless  heart wants to go .

 

Ancient Light

The moon rise slides into place .  It’s  light inviting and inspiring .  It commands your energy into new and ancient places .  Is it deep sleep or restlessness that it brings ?  It’s glow could you bring you home  some night . And to a home that seemed vaguely absent it may help you to meet  once again  .  On those rare nights when it catches  hold of you , when you didn’t see it coming , and it takes one of your breathes away and you loose the insignificance bits . In that second there is freedom .  Illumination in degrees is , at times , surprising .  It may be necessary to decide to welcome the bright light and it’s warmth . It is there  waiting  to know your soul’s answer is yes . Yes to ancient light from stars long gone and yes to steering along a path set in motion when your first breath had begun .

Restless Ego

Moving through the restless ego and the dearest friend of a lifetime in spirit . The journey of the  creative heart unfolding , it’s whims and battles within the mind and soul breathing . It is the dance and awakening and release that fuels yearnings . in the deepest, slow breath intimacy with a mystery is realized in the creation of art and use of words . Together they sing .

‘INNER VISION’

Beautiful ,Wild Road

The wild so real it’s beautiful .  It runs so deep that all the thorns have fallen away and turned into dust .  As  it opens up , stretching ever wider ,  it’s magnificence will envelop your heart . There may be a song  to ignite  the stirrings or a lullaby to soothe the spirit’s lonely wanderings .

There is joy in the beautiful , wild road  .  It seeks for you all the while that you sleep . And it holds your heart so dear that the comfort that you feel becomes real .  Feel the lightness in the touch of the stars when they dance in your eyes .  It’s an invitation to twirl  with all of your heart.

The beautiful , wild road will show you the magnificence  that is you . 

 

Whispers

Whispers in the heart , sweet and kind  , lead us to each other  .

Whispers in the trees  , breathe in and breathe out , lead us to live.

Whispers from friendships  , alive and strong , bring a new day …

again and again .

Friends

Wisdom in the Shadows

The murmurings are there , ever sweet and dear .  They are there . The challenge to know oneself better than any other is truly what the world has asked of you . You may choose to make a fancy flight of getting away or a plain ‘ole barn to stash away , but the light that is you will find it’s way . It will find it’s way out  and into the world .

There is wisdom  in those shadows that you shy away from . wisdom so dear it will take your breath away . Give  pause and listen to the  splendid  quietness and you will hear the wisdom in the shadows .
