A home for our hearts

Are you my girl next door?
Do you live on the floor,
Above my glass ceiling?

Are you the fire,
That glows in my hearth?
The warmth in the air,
Bringing lightness of breath?

Will we build four walls around us?
Yet leave space for windows,
And doors wide open?

Are you the roof over my head?
Where someday,
We shall share the same bed?

Is there a home to be made betwixt us?
Will our hearts form mutual sanctuary,
A shelter from the storm?

We cannot know if it’s meant to be.
But first we can construct a shack,
That’s temporary.

And if it weathers,
The elements well,
We can always build,
A stronger shell.

Laughter and light,
Will be our blocks.
Love and compassion,
Our sand and cement.

With understanding,
As our foundation.
Together in love,
Growth and transformation.

Believe

As I watch the sun set for one last time on the wilder side of my world, the golden glow fades behind rugged islands that lie out far beyond the bay, and I wonder if I shall ever find another soul who will care to share with me these wondrous moments.

Will it be I alone who revels at the marbled sky? Who watches as the birds glide hurriedly home to their nurturing nests. Now I am a solitary songbird. Will my own music be enough to soothe my soul? Will those fiery plumes, left in the wake of our life giving star’s descent, be enough to warm my heart?

Can I please my own mind scanning the horizon for random sights that bless the present as unique, never to be seen or felt or heard again?

Will I miss your presence every time nature marvels in my eyes?

I must trust that somewhere there are eyes out there that see the same, who wonder if they will meet another’s glance and for a moment feel an ease of that subtle, solemn pain.

Loneliness is only lonesome when we alone are not enough.

Can the unconditional love we have to share with the world, for life, nature and every being and creature in existence be suffice to compensate for these moments not shared?

Maybe…

I guess I will eventually see.

Somewhere inside I do believe.

Letting Go

Sometimes in life we build a wall around ourselves,
Only to realise that we are defending against an invisible external,
When the hurt and fear we are carrying is held within.
The madness of it all is that these feelings are not ours to hold.
If we break down the walls and open our eyes
We might just see there is no darkness inside anymore.
There is a light shining, however fragile at first.
We must feed this tiny flame with compassion.
Understanding is key to forgiveness.
Forgiving is key to letting go.
Let go, watch the fire grow!

Free the innocent child within

New Year’s Resolutions 2015

Life is just too short to waste. Nobody knows when it will be taken away so better to live without regret, better to try your best than not, better to blindly believe in the good instead of accepting that it’s all bad, better to know and like yourself rather than a version created solely out of fear that you were never (and won’t ever be) good enough, better to live each day as if it were indeed your last without fear, without anger, without hate, without chaos, frustration or confusion….

New year’s resolutions 2015:
1. Be myself and let others see Me
2. Let go of all learned negative thoughts, behaviours, habits, words and deeds for they don’t belong to me
3. Live in the present
4. Feel the joy of gentleness and contentment
in every moment
5. Smile with my eyes and heart
6. Share the positive Truth
7. Laugh and play everyday

Now I Know

I dropped the penny
And I broke the glass,
I guess I never really listened in class.
I spent my time breaking all the rules,
I didn’t want it to come true,
I didn’t want to be just like you.

I spent my time breaking all the rules,
I was not a fool, I was just afraid.
But no one knew, they could not see me,
I was not OK,
I couldn’t take the madness of it all,
I was scared to fall.

***********************************************

Confusion and chaos was the name of the game,
I didn’t want to be just the same.
I slowed it down, I hurried up,
It was not enough.
I tried to be something outside of me,
I didn’t know, it wasn’t clear,
I had the fear.

Just to be,
It was not enough,
Over time,
The conditioning had changed my mind.
I forgot what it was all about,
This crazy world had me turned inside out.

I thought if I could just meet a sage,
Who could teach me how to save me from myself.
If I could change, my maze-like mind, negative rhymes,
Everything feeling so out of time.

So I slowed it down,
I took a step back,
I slowly learned how to take a look
At the craziness of my world,
There was a way that I could have it all.

To save myself, from myself,
Life wasn’t really the mess I thought it was.
All I had to do was look inside.
Realise, I am my Child.

I can Feel,
I am anew.
I can Feel,
And that is True.
I can Feel,
It is all I need.
I can Feel,
I know the Truth.

Me and You

I like you.
You are my best friend.
We’ve known each other since time began.

No-one knows
What we’ve been through,
You are Me
And I am You.

When the darkness calls
And the light fades,
Don’t you fret dear
It’ll be OK.

Take my hand,
Let’s walk tall together,
On sunny days
Or in stormy weather.

When the darkness calls
And the light fades,
Don’t you fret dear
It’ll be OK.

No-one knows
What we’ve been through,
You are Me
And I am You.

You are Me
And I am You…
