It Is Possible

It is possible to choose to break an old rhythm and know freedom from bigotry and loosen the grip of  hate .

It is possible to  choose to break an old rhythm and exercise your mind removed from mass  media  and discover a few moments of truth  in the quiet  .

It is possible to choose to break old rhythms of  fear that are false  in  favor of  trust and are born in compassion .

It is possible to choose to break an old rhythm of judgement and in it’s place welcome  the peace that understanding brings .

it is possible to choose  to break an old rhythm of hearing only  the answer that your mind wants to hear and rather listen free from the notions planted long ago .

It is possible to see each other  through the tender, forgiving   eyes  of the heart free from the chains of distrust .

It is a gift that I offer to you  today and every day forward  . i choose to place my thoughts , words and deeds on watch so that I WILL DO NO HARM .

 

 

Break Free

Light appears and while  dancing it beckons .  Flowing into a rhythm  it’s grace wraps around

any broken bits and draws out  all humanness .  The beauty and the wild rawness reside by side

by side . Nurturing the love is how they  each survive  …….

Freedom

           When i loosen the hold on the mirror in my hand it’s easy notice  the heart muscle relax . The stories in the image that I see could change when they are set free .  Those stories ask me for freedom from time to time and I consider  it for a bit . And then it’s time to explore .

There is delicious laughter to be had and it’s free though sometimes there needs to be a reminder to seek it out . Then , of course , is the courage .  It’s magnificence can go unnoticed if you can imagine . It’s so dear and sometimes life changing . You may only notice  it’s friend  known as fear but courage often slips in quietly and opens a door . And there is freedom .

Heartbreak  has it’s own odd rewards .  It might  bring you to yourself and it might twist and turn you until you know that you can set it free .  Tears create comfort in their  release freeing you heal nearly unknowable woes .

When you clearly there is love and know it as a true companion you are free .

Is This Freedom ?

It lends itself your fears .

Deeper still a light shines through and forgives the tears .

Yearning  to know compassion ,

learning to know …

Is this freedom ?

When the Spirit is Free

It Was a Dream

It was a dream  imagined long before  the first step ever happened  . The places and their specifics were not yet in my sights but somehow I knew that  I would be  going  on this exploration  .  A marvelous  mystery was showing itself in parts and leading to an adventure .

Delighted by the unknown in front of me and , in moments of questioning ,  I recognized the choice  .  Give my questions to trust and be on the way or feed them , turning them into fear . I chose trust  and was rewarded greatly .

A magnificent adventure unfolded and lives in my heart still .  It reminds me again and again of the beauty in the unknown and of the delicate language of the trees . A peaceful visitor  can witness  the rhythms  of the sun shining through the branches and leaves and dancing on the forest floor while  the birds follow the visitor’s movements with songs .

In a moment here and there I felt as though I as feeling the footsteps of the Souls that had gone before me . As if I were walking with them and they  with me .

The combined solitude and camaraderie  amongst the fellow pilgrims reached a place so deep that it continues to teach me and comfort me so many years later . 

Seeking Wings

They were  mine once  ,

in a dream …or was it  in  that other lifetime ?

The heart must know . That’s where I’ll go to seek my wings .

The sense of them wrapping around me gently and protecting  my soul

soothes me into sweet release .

It is a different sort of freedom not quite familiar in this earthly life .

Elegantly and delicately  they open after rest

and seek to stretch .

A few feathers may fall away here or there and , truly , are intended gifts .

Movement  designed to flow

and a dance leading the heavens  to free the heart .

Seeking wings in the sky

and I don’t don’t why .

Since I have rediscovered  them right by my side .

‘ Curious ‘

In the gentle thoughts curiosity  grows  .

Leading the charge and opening the doors ,

My curiosity  grows .

Look here ,  now there  . expanding this life .

Contemplation  and creation

Into  Art  I  go .
