a soul poem

‘Slow’ and ‘down’ are modes of the soul; they are connective modes, ways of keeping connected to oneself and to one’s environment. ‘Slowing downwards’ refers to more than simply moving slowly, it means growing down towards the roots of one’s being. Instead of outward growth and upward climb, life at times must turn inward and downward in order to grow in other ways.

Slowing downwards creates opportunities to dwell more deeply in one’s life, for the home we are looking for in this world is within us all along.The lost home that we are seeking is ourselves.

~Michael Meade

for now, it’s about being….

inquiry for today~ how do you say to yourself, I can’t, but…..

poetic realms

But I also say this: that light is an invitation

to happiness, and that happiness,

when it’s done right, is a kind of holiness,

palpable and redemptive.

~Mary Oliver
