a fresh exhale into the dark soul

1-DSC02843

who is this existence
who puts sadness
in your heart

who is this soul
who sweetens your grief
as soon as you crawl

the one who first frightens you
with deadly snakes
before opening the treasure vault

who changes a monster
to an angel
a sorrow to happiness

who gives the blind
wisdom and
inner sight

who changes darkness
to light
thistles to flowers

who sheds the sins
of the sinful like
autumn leaves

and puts guilt
in the heart of
its own enemies

who makes them
repent and in silence
says amen and
whose amen brings
inner happiness
and soulful delight

who changes bitter thoughts
to lightness and
joyous zeal

bestows fire
and makes you leap
with unknown joy

the fire that can
make a hero
from a desperate heart

who is this existence
who is this
tell me who

…Rumi

the magic of devotion is this compassionate space of bearing witness to the silence of suffering………may we burrow within the poetics of the strongest soul…….

Go to the Buddha, sit with him, and show him your pain. He will look at you with loving kindness, compassion, and mindfulness, and show you ways to embrace your suffering and look deeply in to it. With understanding and compassion, you will be able to heal the wounds in your heart, and in the world. The Buddha called suffering a Holy Truth, because our suffering has the capacity of showing us the path to liberation…..Thich Nhat Hanh

the drama of our lives……

The life of every man is a diary in which he means to write one story, and writes another; and his humblest hour is when he compares the volume as it is with what he vowed to make it…..James M. Barrie

  1. Abstracts are real and time is a lie, for it cannot be measured when one moment can expand to hold everything. What keeps us here, really? A thread that breaks in a breeze. And yet a thread that cannot be broken. Of a myriad of answers, only one matters. Love.

    • and me is you is eternity…..loving the heart that can hold a million sorrows….blessings to your knowing Bobbie, threaded from the stars……
