Do You See Beyond Today ?

Separated from humanity . It is a lie .  The US is WE and the WE is US .

One love is All love .  One broken  Woman , Man or child leaves us all broken .

Broken bits will be carried throughout the generations in our DNA .

When the stones are thrown the hurt inflicted will  become part of your families inheritance  .

Do you see you beyond today ?

Today’s creation lives beyond what you hold in your hand .  And in your heart .

 

 

Learn as I Go

I heard the birds  singing  this morning as it were  spring .  it was like a sweet , gentle smile opening across one’s  face .   Sun inspiring  whimsey and a dash of hope in such a way that i was nearly fooled . Fooled into thinking that spring was near rather  than the fall and  approaching winter .

Expanding  dreams in the  warm rays of sunlight is easy and sweet .  A joyous dance in ideas and amongst roads yet to be seen .  Unfolding a layer and releasing all barriers in thought , word and deed .

I am happy to know what I don’t know so that I will learn as i go . 

It Is The Sleeping Giants ….

Many times it is the sleeping giants that are the ones that save us  from ourselves .  The quiet voice in the threads of our longest relationships that illuminate our courage and compassion as well as the deepest fears that  cause us to push love away .

Forgiveness sleeps  and waits to be called  .  Always  ready to bring comfort and to light  the dimness in the hall . Many times it is the first in line  and can free you from yourself .

Compassion flows like blood through the heart where there  are no blocks .  Otherwise it gets stuck and hardens  the heart . Something so strong can be so fragile and damage may set in while we sleep  .

Willingness to know beyond our own private gate and invite the  world to show us other ways free from hate .

These are a few of our sleeping giants and I say ” Let them awaken ! ” 

 

The Side Roads

I will  find my way to the next side road  .  I will venture out into what seems unknown .

It may be a simple touch that brings new direction  . And with it’s smile my heart will be known

for a second . The comfort lives in moments that embrace the fears and look for the side roads .

Break Free to Breathe Again

I must break free to breathe again . The power of life chooses when to burn as a fire or to

flow easily as a stream . The heartbreak of one is the heartbreak of humanity and will not  go

down without  a break  in the hate .. The heartbeat  of one will rise like the heartbeat of all and

break free to breathe again .

There are voices in the trees  telling an unseen world  of injury and giving lessons for healing

and there are righteous  songs among  the animals teaching of   a courageous path to

break free to breathe again .

Each time this one human heart is fractured by the weight of despair, by the actions of lost

souls ,

renewal arrives in the  power of a new moment ,  determination unrelenting ,  and  the grace of

life in each breath

leads us to break free and breathe again .

Holding a Dream

Joyous hand holding in a dream or was it you ? When you were there , you weren’t there .

And I loved you still . Lessons for hearing  my heart and soaring free …and to believe .

It’s up to me .

Dancing thoughts anchored by the presence  of you now twirling freely

and

leaping into adventures  of this world and into ancient threads of humanity .

The power of release in a heartbeat and tender moments will never die . 

 

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 .
