The Miracle of Resilence

The resilience of the human soul is such a miracle!
We break and break and break
Only because through all the cracks,
sweet and sacred Life is trying to reach us and gush up in us!
Life’s desire to be Lived
is astounding beyond any words or any form.
Life Itself never gives up on us,
if we are willing to walk with it and break open
until all of Life is here and then
there is no more breaking to be done.

Live! Break! Thrive!
Live life as Life!

Life’s Pull and Pitfall

Life has its own inexorable pull
My future is written in the stars,
and alone I cannot carry it.

Powerful Life calls at me from all directions
I’m afraid.
I thought I would rejoice here,
but, ah! No!
As I arrive at such a vibrant crossroads,
I’m crying.

Because I know
If I do not offer up the doing of all this to the gods at every step,
A wasteland will be laid in my soul.
And I won’t even notice.

I don’t want to be used, Friend.
Please shower me with Your kindness.
Help me stay me real.
Help me remember You at every step, Friend.

Deep Cahoots

In deep cahoots with myself,
I meet myself in the world
Again and again and again.

All those cheeky winks and wake up calls
are the dance of my own deep desire.

What a delightful world this is!

Be All Here

Be All Here.
Don’t think to get ahead.
Don’t think that you know.

You’ll miss yourself.
You’ll abandon your child self.
You’ll forsake your human pain,
And turn away from your heart.

You’ll miss the people around you,
opening a chasm between yourself and others,
Between yourself and yourself.

Be All Here.
Be All Here.
Be All Here.

Leaving the Old Country

I cry
I look at the God of the Beyond
His face cries to mirror me.
I know what we’re about to do.
Is his crying with me a tactic to coax me to him?
Or is it real?

Packing my bags
Preparing to leave my self behind
I cry.

I don’t want to go. I do.

Are they crocodile tears?
Or are they real?

Packing my bags,
preparing to leave the old country behind,
I cry.

Touched by Such Gentleness

Touched by such gentleness,
by the hand of the One in All.
So here. So present. So with me.
As if God Himself marvels at Life in form.

My heart breaks.
I have never been touched like this.
That’s why the magnificence of this stings so hard.

My heart opens and turns to sadness.
Silent, heavy tears roll fast down my cheeks.

The stillness in His touch
Makes my heart crack open
And golden Life begins to pour
Out and then In.

Resentment Thaws

Resentment towards others
Thaws after a long, hard freeze.
It turns into gentleness for myself.
