Stars

STARS

Stars blanket the mid-pacific sky in quiet intensity, testifying to the immanence and abundance of light that makes up the fabric of our universe.

I raise my head to the night.  Breathe.

Give thanks.

Stars birth.  Stars die.  Stars fall.

Stars implode into black holes and dissolve into other universes.

Without fear.

Yes.  I am invested in the falling.
I am invested in the sparkle.

In my own way, I am a star.

My life work is to embrace and grow through my fear.

An you?

In and Beyond Time

In and Beyond Time

Words Fall in oneness, through me.

Words fall on my side of the cosmic divide between this “one”
and “everything else.”

It is for me to hear through my soul channel,
As it is for you to hear through yours.

We are not alone in the hearing
Because the listening itself is a fabric,
a connective
act,
a verb that is a tissue,
a structure,
a promise
of gossamer connectivity between all things
In all time
In now.

I no longer forget.
I no longer remember.
I act or be
Be and act.

Noun into verb,
Verb into noun
All object.
All subject.

All subject to the rulership of divine harmony,
divine
chaos.
All in service to the sweet channel… of love.
And, in this, I have chosen.

I choose to dance the violet pentacle at the center of the flame,
At the center, where all hands grasp through the fire,

I choose a creativity
Which is uniquely peace.

I chose embodiment that is universally peace.

That is what is.
No more.
No less.
We are bowls of water.
Always full
Always empty.

Half and half is for beginners.
Take it all and leave it all.

And, still…
Don’t forget skillful maybe –
the open portal to what is beyond imagining.

But,
leave ambivalence at the door.

In this fierce storm of yes,
this sweet autumn of wind,
this quiet knowing of the path:

Begin in the Body.
Let it live.
Let it breath.
Let it feed.
Let it be soft, animal, instinctive and
Unavoidable.

Begin in the body, and connect.
This is where peace lives.
Peace becomes.
Peace acts, one gesture at a time.

Begin in the body.
Live in the heart.
This is not a choice.

This is a fact.
ACT from this fact.
And through this align in and beyond – space and time.
