Descension to ascension

Descending into the darkness, the valley I promised to cross comes into view. Losing my false sense of self is terrifying and peaceful at the same time. I realize that my sense of self worth is a comfort to my ego but not my soul. The torrents of wind circle my ankles and climb up …

Just Because

Just because I’m different Doesn’t mean that I don’t deserve respect Just because I believe in things that you don’t Doesn’t make me wrong Just because my path goes east and yours goes west Doesn’t mean that either of us is lost Just because I don’t dress like everyone else Doesn’t mean that I should …

Good, Good, Good, Good Vibrations

“You are what you eat”. This is a quote that I’ve been hearing since I was a child.  For years I’ve paid attention to what I eat in the hopes of creating a healthy positive and uplifting life.  Even when I ate almost 100% raw for a year I still didn’t feel like I had …

There is a bottomless pit where my soul goes sometimes. In this pit it is lightless and still. The darkness is thick and cannot be penetrated. But my soul lives on the light of the Beloved Creator.

Truth

Truth There is a place somewhere, where you can shed your wrong ideas like a snake sheds its skin.  And in this place truth fills the emptiness of your soul. I am still searching for this place. I know that I will find it, eventually. In the meantime, forgive me my inequities and understand that …

The Uniting of Soul and Body

The Uniting My soul patiently waits beside the brook watching the breeze waft through the birch trees at the edge of the valley. Their leaves quiver with excitement as the wind caresses and lifts them ever higher and higher. The silence there is soft and white but is interrupted by the whisper of a songbird …

Silence reveals itself to me

I stood at the edge of the world, stillness lay before me and the hands of the clock bowed.  Sand, trees and grass frozen from the silent morning.  I wondered how a world could be so beautiful and so quiet.  Not a sound could be heard, not a human could be seen.  It was only …

Change is always good…

Why do you run from change, He asked.  She shuffled her feet in defense. He looked out at the water, looked down at her feet and smiled. You know I love you, right?  She nodded. Well then, that is what you’ll sit upon while we ride the waves of change.
