Death dancing

The curtain is rich and deep,
Hiding the gears and works behind.

The players on stage taking action,
Flowing for love, loss, triumph and tragedy.

All given meaning by the stage,
Never knowing the audience watching.

The wall between a veil of exploration,
Creating space that the curtain takes.


Knowing that the curtain will fall,
Gives the players reason to be,
To create light before the dark.

Release

Snap, twist, groan, thaw,
The tension eases itself,
Spring life from absence.

Knowledge then wisdom,
Experience leads to awareness,
New space for growth to flow.

Tearing is pain foolishly chosen,
Let go to find peace,
Walk away to find freedom.

Forgiveness

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.

Free to be

Eyes front,
Body below,
Feet backwards,
Spirit above.

Free to connect with the energy beyond,
Carrying it into the world around,
A rainbow of emotion and sensation,
Pain is just a teacher.

Love what is possible,
Delight in what’s real,
Accept through humility,
Shine with pride.

Balancing 7 centres

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

Breaking a cycle

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

Know thyself

The hardest journey to walk
is the one that leads from within

to do is easy
to move is natural
to find love in everything is divine

Life was presented as a challenge,
rising with the ebbs and flows of joy

Love is always there to be sought,
no matter the slaps and pain,
no matter the rise and fall.

Allow others the opportunity to make amends
seek forgiveness for our own trespasses

Find the path with love, discomfort and no pain
for this life is a gift.

Storms

Boom, crack, hiss … 

the surface is washed 

branches are broken 

pathways are cleared 

connections are destroyed

new growth blossoms afterwards .

Sex is sacred

there is no more pure expression of self

belonging to ourselves first and foremost

who is chosen, matters as much the act

it can be an expression of self love 

without loving the other side, it will be less

seeking the whole expression is beautiful

some have been taken without consent 

it robs the self of identity and meaning 

there is always a path to true love
