Unearthing Bones

dscf3538

Unearthing bones 

That were buried

In silence

By the ignorance

Of cold, distant minds

Through darkness

The wind rattles

Between  gaps

Of light

Where the heart

Begins to beat

Flesh to life

The sacred dance

Of true love.

Heart Breathing

Heart flutterings

Of butterfly girl

Old soul eyes

As big as

The moon

A spirit

Dancing tenderly

With the Earth

To music

Born

From silence

An inner laughter

 Of firefly stars

Breathing

In rivers

and

Breathing

Out oceans

She lives

In the

Gift of

 Presence.

I Rise With An Open Heart

Image

“I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” 

― RIP, Maya Angelou, born 4 April 1928, died 28 May 2014

Simplicity is Extraordinary!

Image

I am rising up! When I choose to to embrace my anger, I choose to rise up and face the challenges of a higher way of life, an abundant life, a remarkable life, a joyful life. My life! I am rising up!

Image

Higher energies are in motion to assist me in living, a new fresh, exquisitely beautiful and extraordinary life! I am rising up. I am rising up to sing amongst the stars in the heavens. It’s my voice that calls forth the sun and moon.

Image

It wakes creation in the early light of dawn and sings the earth to sleep in the quiet lavender of dusk. Roots tingling deep in the terrestrial sphere at the vibration of my voice.

Image

I sing into infinity for I am infinity’s child. I sing out the sorrow and the fear. I sing out the anger and hatred of a million voices. I sing out the joy of the Beloved Soul. I sing out the ignorance and wisdom of the ages. I sing out. I AM that I AM.

“Doubt yourself and you doubt everything you see. Judge yourself and you see judges everywhere. But if you listen to the sound of your own voice, you can rise above doubt and judgement. And you can see forever.”
