entwined in roots

Within Earth,
there is Heart.

…….Myla Goldberg

a little pause to quit ‘forcing’ and begin the ‘becoming’…..finding the places that allow us to step outside of ourselves……mesmerized…..complete faith…..connected to one source…

If you have the wisdom and the courage
to go to nature alone, the larger rhythms,
the eternal hum, will make itself known
all the sooner. When you have found it,
it will always be there for you. The peace
without will becomes the peace within, and
you will be able to return to it in your heart
wherever you find yourself.
……Kent Nerburn

being the wind

Sometimes
if you move carefully
through the forest,

breathing
like the ones
in the old stories,

who could cross
a shimmering bed of leaves
without a sound,

you come
to a place
whose only task

is to trouble you
with tiny
but frightening requests,

conceived out of nowhere
but in this place
beginning to lead everywhere.

Requests to stop what
you are doing right now,
and

to stop what you
are becoming
while you do it,

questions
that can make
or unmake
a life,

questions
that have patiently
waited for you,

questions
that have no right
to go away.

……David Whyte

    • those moments that catch us unaware and then…..there’s this unnameable shift…..an enigma……resonating……refilling the well g.f.s…..
