A vow

A vow appeared today,
in this chest, this mind,
To find the qualities of true humanity
that dwell within -
love, serenity, moderation, contentment,
Generosity, creativity, humility,
To birth them in every moment
To hold them as a goal
To see them in others,
To heal what’s in the way,
Expose the Truth,
And reveal who we are.

Brothers in Light



Beautiful Brothers,
My Brothers in Light,
I shed tears for your pain,
Tears you were forbidden.

Your beautiful bodies broken
Your vibrant minds dulled
By monotony and mediocrity.

Beautiful Brothers,
My Brothers in Light,
Thank you for your caring
For our sisters, our children, humanity and me,
For your labor and your steadiness,
For all that you are -
Sacred Souls.

Beautiful Brothers,
My Brothers in Light,
A fire burns in our hearts,
That calls us all elsewhere.
It will burn our shackles.
It will draw us into dance and song and love.

Beautiful Brothers,
My Brothers in Light,
Let us hold hands,
And bravely step forward,
Into a new way of being together,
With the assurance,
That all goodness is seen, counted and multiplied,
And that we are almightily loved.

Surrender to the Sea

I surrender to the sea,
To the violent crashing waves
Over and over.

I make love to the sea,
Am taken in its embrace,
Submit to its playfulness and power.

I let myself go to its depts and its shallowness,
I topple, I’m thrown, I float.

I am taken by the sea.
There is no more me.

I am the sea.
Join me!

An Ancient Soul Roars

An ancient soul,
I have been trapped in the body of a maiden,
The strength of the mountains in my limbs,
The fire of the earth’s core in my belly.

I fell in love with an ideal,
And allowed myself to be shackled and chained,
Unable to even defend her well.

She is finding the key.
She is releasing me.
I fly with her above the landscape that I created with her in other lives.
She laughs.
I roar.
Fire rises again in my belly and I show it to all.

I go with her among the starving souls.
I bring warmth when they let me in.
We are on a joyful mission,
To bring hope,
To this emotional apocalypse.

Into the Light

Another layer of essence
Has been uncovered today,
The layer that covered my longing for your love,
For your recognition,
For your valuing me.

It is the root of my dependency,
The cause of my fear of losing you,
The reason for my attempts at keeping you near.

But I see now that it is not love.
It is my inner child trying to liberate me,
To bring me back to life,
To the true source of my well-being.

You are not at fault.
You have set me free.
I bless you and surround you with my love.
Because it is there.
There is no doubt.
It has been hidden below,
In my depts.

Seeing my neediness without shame,
Accepting the release from the pressure of being perfect,
I open my heart to you and to all,
And entrust us to the light.

To be reborn

We are shrouded in clothes that weigh us down,
That make us ashamed of our nakedness,
Our neediness, our innocence.

We are shackled by them.
We blame each other for these constructs,
And use them against each other at times, like now.

Who else sees us as we are?
Those who would empower us against each other,
Know not what they do.

So I forgive them.
I forgive you.
I forgive me.
I set us all free.
I am shaking off all the yokes.
I am losing the comfort of my own righteousness.
I am stepping into waters unknown,
To be cleansed,
To be naked again,
To be reborn.

I am filled with you

I am filled with you at all times and in all spaces
I just forget.

I get carried away with the world outside you and me.
I am addicted to others,
When my happiness is here with you.

I run from you because you show me the habits that edge you out
Eating, drinking, doing, and so-called love.

I ache for you
But I think I ache for him
He, who exists only in my mind.

I am sad because I have pushed you away
I feel empty or angry, starving for your closeness.

I seek solutions in books and healers, and gurus.
When the solution is knowing, remembering, touching you, inside me.

I wish to belong, to be recognized, to be accepted,
Feel that my journey towards you is useless to the world,
Is without value, is indulgent.

Yet it is sacred work, a sacred journey
That I begin
And perhaps, one day, lead
Through art, through healing, through nature, through love.

I only have to align my thoughts
I only hurt because I have excluded you.

My emptiness is illusion,
Because I am filled with you.
