"Wounding and healing are not opposites.  They're part of the same thing.  It is our wounds that enable us to be compassionate with the wounds of others.  It is our limitations that make us kind to the limitations of others... I think I have served people perfectly with parts of myself I used to be ashamed of."

embraces the entire birth to evolution."

The Sea

Dawn pierces the night
like a nail through a palm.
Crimson flows along
the dark horizon.

It's not impossible
to build a home on the sea.
But it takes many nails.
And the heart to hold out
for the perfect wave.

There is no dying of the light.

That feeling when what we are dreaming into creation is not yet manifest in this reality: 

"There's no hurry.
We'll get there.
Some day."

A Never-Ending Series of Completions

If I was a flower seeking half-lit places to bloom,
when the moon and her hazy halo flooded my garden with firelight—
I can no longer recall the sensation of edges unraveling.
Nor the length of time it took my vine
to climb the mountain, in the shade of night.
Soliciting Source.

Justice wears a blindfold, star-filled
as she balances the scales in her palm.
Two worlds: water and earth.
Some magnetic stillness.
A well dug deep in dirt
longing to be filled.
The water rising
desiring to be contained.

Separation and reconciliation.
This is the dance of The Lovers.
He is the breath. She is the flute;
The cobra and the basket.
The swish of bare feet and the brick-lined street.
But We are the music, the magic, the walk home.
The One becomes two, becomes One again.
Synthesis from antithesis.

How long do water and light resist their attraction
before letting go and allowing the rainbow?
And after the kiss, does water return to water?
Does light return to light?

"In many shamanic societies, if you came to a medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions:
When did you stop dancing?
When did you stop singing?
When did you stop being enchanted by stories?
When did you stop finding comfort in the sweet territory of silence?"

The mystery of life isn't a problem to solve...but a reality to experience.  A process that cannot be understood by stopping it.  We must move with the flow of the process.  We must join it.  We must flow with it.
