The Beatitudes

Blessed are the weary, for they will have rest.   Blessed are the builders of bridges, for they will be received.   Blessed are the stewards, for they will be sated.   Blessed are the givers, for they will be forgiven.   Blessed are the searchers, for they will be found.   Blessed are the […]

Acceptance

It is not always about change; it is about transformation. Being one expands my range – fulfillment is in transition.   Of course, I will never be the same; and, indeed, I may be different. Being one expands my heart’s claim – contentment is embracing bent.   Some strive to make it happen; rather than […]

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 […]

Let Go Let God

It’s hard to give over control, as if, I ever had control. It’s hard to say, “I’ve lost control”, assuming I was in control. I’ve noticed some just want answers, and there are really no answers. I’ve noticed some make up answers, despite questions without answers. I cannot create solutions grasping at straws aren’t solutions. […]

Moan

I exhaled a silent sigh, not an “aha”; it was “ahh”.   With my eyes wide shut, I winced – I breathed in the restlessness while abating awakeness.   I stood there, laying prostrate – I absorbed the energy, embracing the confusion.   Reflecting my shadow self, the sun and the moon appear and emerge […]
