Anathema to all
Easily confused with control
Clarity or confusion
Red for white, red for blood
Powerful tones driving a melody
Listening to a beat from the past
Gives a structure to the future
Ignoring now for presence
Allow past, intuit future
Time has no feeling
A substance of light and flash
Permanence in connection
Broken by betrayal of feeling
The ocean masks currents
A distraction in waves.
A composite of colours and sinew,
Binding and blending an essence into an existence,
Affected by connections between centres of being
Without pre-tension – enjoying the energetic views,
Heightened by the difference – seeking unity from clues,
A challenge understated by the desire to soothe
From within, for within, without all
Without judgement, reaction or relapse
Using metaphor and feeling for knowledge and understanding
Intuitive glances given
Creating consensus with one
Bringing together what is and was.
The golden light cascades forward,
Creating a moment of fleeting tranquility.
The space created is sacred and pure,
Interrupted by the noise
and thunder of life passing by.
The shining light
like a watchful gaze
allows dancing shadows and reflections.
Figures and stories exist in the alcoves,
Contemplating the pattern.
Here we sit and walk
as silent music waits in the background.
Circles and cycles
Each part has its place
Puzzling to no end
No holding on to bad edges
Goodness lies in allowance
Create space for momentum
Denying truth is forceful tension
Don’t let it build and distort
Just accept and let go
Clear away storms
Growing from the center within
Gently fighting for self
Source of pure energy
Burns away the unwelcome presence
My energy was changed by what happened,
I was affected in a way I didn’t understand,
Hurt and changed in a way I couldn’t process.
I am strong now to see it through,
I accept what is and what was,
I can transcend this effect to heal myself.
The cycle has been observed,
The repetitions of the trauma recognized,
The shadow self is angry and hurt no more.
The true self has recognized the memories,
Trapped beneath the surface of my reality,
I am what will be and become what is.
Connecting with the true self,
Following our own path,
Speaking truth with efficacy,
Loving wisely and powerfully,
Respecting self and others,
Imagining creatively and feeling gently,
Surviving with rigour and force
Bring balance to live well,
Apply energy to the right centres,
Never wrongly to the incorrect centre,
Lest pain is what is sought
a natural evolution
going against apparent instinct
connecting with the true path
limit pain by walking forward
look to where you walk
not getting distracted looking elsewhere
not hating yourself
not hating what is necessary
Boom, crack, hiss …
the surface is washed
branches are broken
pathways are cleared
connections are destroyed
new growth blossoms afterwards .
explain, walk, hear
Balance it out
live the change
When they go high, we go low to find our way through.
There is a beautiful wisdom in understanding our paths and staying on them. We are built to want things, to yearn for what we do not have so that we find ourselves in-between that which is and could be.
Being aware of not having what we want gives us stability, noticing what we need to get what we want gives us wisdom and feeling discomfort with not having what we want gives us the energy to go get it.
Buried in snow drifts,
Deep in the forest,
They float on,
As spirits without a home.
They never leave,
Watching and yearning,
Dreaming of a release,
They scratch at their cage.
Forsaken parts of ourselves,
Releasing them releases us.
Our reflections look at us,
With our own eyes.
