A PANTOUM POEM…. Being Seen.


Good Morning… Below is a quote from Rick Jarow.  I loved it sooo much I wanted to share it with you.  I especially feel the beauty of the last paragraph, which I highlighted.  Wow.  That will be what I let fill me up today and give my heart a joyful beat.  Exquisite.

“A heroic life is one in which you realize your fullest potentials, give generously and become a conscious instrument of healing and transformation within your respective cultures and communities. The task at hand is not to put out the fires in our lives, but to allow them to burn away what is false and create ways that will sustain our hearts and souls. As we reconnect with each other, see where we have been and understand how we can support everyone’s journey to healing and wholeness, we will fearlessly speak the truths that give our lives the sharp edges of reality.

The Way of Abundance is all too often misconstrued as a shallow sense of ‘getting what one wants,’ ‘eliminating the negative,’ or ‘being free from pain.’ Even the often-touted ‘manifesting your dreams,’ offers a psychological disposition that generally remains fixated around manifestation as ‘the project of me.’

But the ‘project of me’ can never be enough, for it does not meet ‘the other,’ and real living involves meeting. The touch and contact with all of life, the full freedom of non-separation, the completeness of full relationship, and the radiance of compassionate ecstasy are what we are inherently hungry for.”

BEING SEEN…

There is no living in light alone

The radiance of others waits to be seen and felt

I can see you when you can’t feel it yourself

Our far off journeys lead to the same place

The radiance of others waits to be seen and felt

We hunger to be known as we are

Our far off journeys lead to the same place

What I can’t see I will feel from my heart

We hunger to be known as we are

I wait to be seen by you

What I can’t see I will feel from my heart

In compassion I am you as you are me

I wait to be seen by you

Enough as I am that I am

In compassion I am you as you are me

In you I find my best loving self

Enough as I am that I am 

I can see you when you can’t feel it yourself

In you I am my best self

There is no living alone in the Light
