My Lonely Coat

My Lonely Coat

0

I must get some pleasure out of lonely. A deep familiar pleasure from putting on my lonely coat and letting everyone see just how well it’s sewn. “Oh, that lonely coat must have cost you a fortune!” “Oh my! I’ve never seen a lonely coat as beautiful as yours.” “Here, let me help you with […]

Death isn’t personal

0

Why do we take death so personally? Death happens to us all. We identify so strongly with the self, our ego, and our personalities that we fail to accept one of the most incredible and inevitable parts of this journey. The end. We set ourselves up for terrible deaths because we rage against this natural […]

Women to be heard

To be heard

0

Mostly the most amazing thing you can do for me is to listen. When I’m tired, or hungry, or sad, or angry. When I’m out of sorts or spinning or transforming. When I forget myself, or forget where I’m standing, even when I forget you. Please just listen. When you feel like running away, or […]

. Some leaning forward some resting their spines on welcoming chairs. 

All partaking in the communion at hand. 

I stood 20 feet away affected by the deep laughter. The words, my simple English-speaking mind could not comprehend.

 This lack of understanding left me with only the feeling of their […]

The Vow

I will enfold you in ways of loving that have never been written or sung about. Ways in which you dream, but upon waking forget. I will love you in these sacred ways.

Intermittent Disappearance

0

I watch him fade. I watch his mind go, and go, and go. I wonder if the next time I see him, the tears will spill over my eyelids. His intellect has gone, his humor is following. I imagine in the end, his kindness will pervade. Ironic, how sometimes what has served us so well […]

The Hunt

It had been two weeks since I had seen her. She was still bald, skin taught with no turgor, slightly jaundiced, swollen abdomen, tired and sunken eyes. It was only while waiting half an hour for her to move that I noticed the floor in the room was a red plaid and that the walls […]

She shines from an unwavering, unfailing Source with consciousness and clarity, providing companionship, comfort, direction.
 Guidance from a place so pure within her it offers strong allowances to all who perceive her.
 She permits us to feel into her and to see her naked and raw, exactly as she is. Radiant transparent Love.
 Her intimate […]
