Silence

Quietly wander without making noise, or in stillness embrace the emptiness.   It takes skill to be heartily refreshed, listening is work done with a purpose, to communicate with silence opens me.   In silence, we don’t take more than we need – being present can be a huge ordeal, being present can provide a […]

State of Emergency

There is a state of emergency – be careful and be alert. Indeed, there is no plan, no control of what will be.   Being emergent, regardless of “supposed to” and “have to” allows me to be responsive and receptive in the moment.   In harmony with what is left, I’m one with in between […]

The heart of forgiveness is mercy. The key to embracing forgiveness is embracing healing atonement.   Forgiveness cannot be demanded. “Woe is me” and “it’s because of you” wallows in the past and holds me back.   Mercy is love just for the asking.

It’s continuous and… relentless to entice.   In real-time engaged, are we what’s happening? Thus we become caged – unheard with no opening.   Our lives are thus […]

Word

To hear, I must listen, to listen, I must be all in. I labor to leave the womb, I suffer to heal the wound.   As the cosmos is revolving, the word is evolving. With others, in gestation, I embrace the mutation.   My time is not terminal. My space is real liminal. I live […]

Boundaries

“Just cuz”is rarely for a just cause = like I have to wait ‘just cuz’ your late.   Of course, it could be for good reason – someone else needed your attention. However, had you left earlier I would not have been surlier   I am not suggesting you’re bad; and I certainly should not […]

Grafting

Blossoming happens; when the root is well.   Beauty may not beheld in an alien soil. The flower may not be, because the root fails.   But – we can bond shoot with a hearty root – native and foreign kept alive as one.   In true union be they’re not one, not two. Where […]
