What you Already Know

Not here to tell them anything.

What to say?

What to do?

What to feel?

Nothing.

I am here to keep space for others.

A place where all is healed.

All is heard.

All is understood.

Not here to tell them anything.

Merely here to allow others to hear what you already know.

Things Are Not What they Seem

All that is gold does not glitter; not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither; deep roots are not reached by the frost.~J.R.Tolkien

Too often we judge a book by its cover, failing to read the contents. Lazily looking out into the world, forgetting there is still much more to learn. Too busy or conditioned response? It is not too late to see anew.

Stepping into the Canvas with deeper perspective for things are not what they seem. Just for today I will look deeper within the beauty of they day, allowing deeper mysteries to surface. That which was unseen shall be made seen.

Joy in my Heart

What for this happiness,

For Joy not present.

Day to day,

Forgotten truth.

Crashing all around,

Sinners and suffering.

Choosing to listen,

Or choosing to focus yet again.

Laser sighted,

Target in view.

Stay present in joy,

Happiness will follow.

No matter crashings of the day,

We still have Joy in our Heart.

Spaces in your Togetherness

 “Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.”
―The Prophet

Open my Heart

Today I open my heart,

For all to share.

Vulnerable,

Yet irremovable.

Shadows tainting days of old,

Shining forth watching it wither.

Today I open my heart,

For all to share.

Standing on grounds of peace and love,

Allowing mirrors to outwardly reflect.

That which is without no longer ruling,

Within…written upon footsteps kissing earth.

Today I open my heart,

For all to share.
