Like most people, my life has brought times of profound happiness and times of profound grief. Some fantastic achievements, and some fantastic failures. I have loved and lost family, friends, relationships, beloved animals and faith in cherished ideas and ideals.
There have been chapters of deep devotion, connection and awareness, and chapters of unconsciousness and regret.
Like most of us, I have known physical, mental, and emotional pain that I thought would never leave, and have known comfort, contentment and grace that I thought would always remain.
And there have been moments of profound intimacy with life—as well as loneliness so lonesome that I was certain I was nothing more than a particle of dust, floating through the universe and with no Home, anywhere in it…
But I’ve come to believe that we are Spirit, exploring how to walk on the wobbly legs of a very young species: the Human, Being—with all of its tenderness and beauty, as well as its shadows and hidden compartments, and complexities so complex that they can surprise even the most committed seeker of Universal Truths. Yet as Spirit, we are made of the energy of goodness, and our lives are sacred and worthwhile, and we are each loved and supported and treasured—more profoundly than we could ever imagine.
Observing the extreme times we’re living in, I believe our collective soul has embarked on an individual and a communal kind of Medicine Walk. Perhaps now is a time in which we are each being called to discover our individual purpose and gifts---that we might bring them back to the Tribe—a species that is deeply out-of-balance. The discovering of our personal medicine may be brought on through illness, divorce, financial loss, and sudden homelessness; addictions or the recovery process…even the death of a loved one who has chosen to gift us with the fierce grace of a space with which to now discover another Calling, bringing yet greater medicine to the deeply struggling larger human family.
May you discover your personal Medicine, and share it with every form of life you touch. When we do this we are saying, “Thank you. I acknowledge the gift I’ve been given. I will step fully into Who I AM, in total awareness of the Goodness and the Grace and the Compassion and the Mercy and the Love I AM. I am Love, Loving.”
And may these poems support you in recovering or discovering the courage you will need to live your truth, serving to nourish and support body, mind, and spirit through the times in which we are living.
Know that you are Seen. Know that you are Heard. I believe that the Power in which you believe has heard you, and recognizes the longing and the truth of your heart. And that your Soul Tribe is connected, heart-to-heart across the planet; that you have Soul Family everywhere, "waking up" together...
You're doing great. Keep Loving...
