head above water

Being in touch with the felt sense of the ground as a solid, rooted base allows the heart to open. the safer we feel, the more easily we can sustain an open heart. Silke Greiner, a gifted bodyworker, contrasted her experience of being relatively grounded in everyday life with a deeper sense of groundedness and connection that she opened to when she sat and worked with people. The “truth of being” came clearly int her awareness. This sense is available to each of us at any moment if we are willing to slow down and listen. Doing so is like turning our face toward an invisible sun. We just need to remember that it is here awaiting our attention. ~John Prendergast

what surfaces is usually better as a bubbling wave….gentle, cyclical, ancient…..sink into the images that comfort and allow us to embrace contracted spaces…..

inquiry for today~ just for today, can you allow a few contradictions, a little freefalling, and a small bubbling fear or two?

the deep drumming

As swimmers dare

to lie face to the sky

and water bears them,

as hawks rest upon air

and air sustains them

so would I learn to attain

freefall, and float

into Creator Spirit’s deep embrace,

knowing no effort earns

that all-surrounding grace.

~Denise Levertov
