Contacting the truth of our own suffering
is what cracks the heart open
to self-compassion and forgiveness.
sing the sweet song of the heart…..know its rhythms and ancient call to bask in the mysteries of intuitive pleasures……be with the unknowable melodies……
The journey is a dance
Between this reality and that
A dance with the universe
The energies that live inside us
Energies that support or avoid us.
The love you offer them, you offer yourself
It comes back multiplied
Often, but no guarantees
A search for answers that may not exist
A journey of faith: faith in yourself.
Perhaps the heart of our melancholy is that we miss the person we were meant to be. We miss our authentic selves. But the good news is that even if you have ignored its overtures for decades, your authentic self has not abandoned you. Instead it has been waiting patiently for you to recognize it and reconnect. Turn away from the world this year and begin to listen.
