Fourteen January, Two Thousand and fourteen… a pantoum.


hair as milky way

My own little Milky Way… Infinite Spaciousness.

This day begins my New Year.

How will you make way for more spaciousness in your Life?

This days numerology adds up to 13, which in tarot cards is the Death card.  No need to quiver and shake over that cause what it means is that it is a year of endings, letting go, surrendering, making space, Transformation.  There is renewal in the Death card.  There is a giving back to the Earth, there is a burn away for the Phoenix to rise, a giving up to the great wide sea of life to be taken away by the moving tides for refreshing, there is an inhale that gives way to an exhale, and does that all over again as the winds of change clear the air, to give way to a more expansive view.  Letting in More Spaciousness.  All the elements converge as the scythe comes to clear away what needs clearing.

I choose  Spaciousness this year to dedicate myself to.  I do that some years; give myself to a word that evokes a feeling, and opportunity, a little magic in the pot of my life to get stirred up and danced with.

Spaciousness: I like how those three syllables roll off my tongue and the imagining of all that vastness I surrender myself up to.  Getting rid of ‘stuff’, body, mind and spiritually for that spaciousness to Be.   Feeling my heart expand for more space to be loved and give love.   More space to move around in.  More space to feel the Oneness of us all.  The connection of Heaven and EArth and All that IS.

 

Making spacious the heart and mind’s reception

The mind has a way of containing great wonder

Give way to the Heart’s quiet voice speaking

Let the Story told be one of love’s tender choice

 

The mind has a way of containing great wonder

What use is the bound box in the withholding

Let the story told be one of love’s tender choice

Release the confines of negative thinking

 

What use is the bound box in the withholding

Held silent and secret in cloistered thought

Release the confines of negative thinking

Make way for a story that speaks to an expansive life

 

Held silent and secret in cloistered thought

Give way to the Heart’s quiet voice speaking

Make way for a story that speaks to an expansive life

Making spacious the heart and mind’s reception.

TIME TRAVELING TIMELESSLY


TIME ON IT'S HEAD

Time was shifted again this morning.  A little quake forward of an hour. A little shiver in time.  Today has 23 hours rather than 24. It has occurred to me in some moment of wonder; who decided, with authority, to to change time, and how long did it take them to ‘conclave’ and come to it?  Not so much the why of it.  That doesn’t take much pondering as the build up to Winter Solstice gives to short, dark days, and the want and desire for Light becomes a hunger.   A shift in time can fix that.

No matter the gift of winter quietude and seasonal austerity that needs this time to do what it must, the drab and dark can feel lonely, closed in, and humans crave Light.  Long, dark days call me to my inner world, where the of light me comes from inside out.  I find myself feeling creative, busy lighting up my world with writing, and making things for me and my friends and family.  Mostly, I let myself notice.  I don’t usually feel the drab and gloom that fills the Midwestern sky for months till the Spring pushes her points of green out and spreads, calling Summer heat to give her blossoms and seeds.  I love those sunny days that linger into the night, and the want to be outside under the canopy of summer’s light that sunsets to corals, and blues and indigo for the starry night; feeling the heat of the day linger on bare skin.

My body is full of the seasons as they come,and go in the time that they take to do what they do. My inner clock is patterned by them, and the elemental expressions of them.

Time is made up and clearly it can be shifted.  And an Infinite Universe is timeless.  We’re floating around in it.  What’s time got to do with anything really, other than what we proclaim it to be so we can box our lives up in a certain way?  So we get certain living done in a timely manner, so we can do it again.  Time is a construct. (IMO)Somedays it holds the day together, and some days it in the way of my Joy.

 

 

This is it right now

Breathe in this moment fully

What does peace smell like?

 

Why count the minutes

When in the presence of the

Present is your gift
