Pantoum for Colliding Paradigms


Did Alice know?  Down the hole we go.  It’s not moving very slow… anymore.

COLLIDING PARADIGMS

A matrix of illusive illusions in call to kinship desires

Paradigms collide hoping for the win

Fear wants for the caress of love and safety

How the ease is made for these deceptions

Paradigms collide hoping for the win

Choices make way for diverse consequences

How the ease is made for these deceptions

“Only you can prevent forest fires”

Choices make way for diverse consequences

Power is not over other, it is within

“Only you can prevent forest fires”

Smokey the Bear modeled stewardship

Power is not over other, it is within

Stake your power to the Highest good

Your land needs your greatest care

Stake your power to the Highest Good

Fear wants for the caress of love and safety

Your land needs your greatest care

Stewardship and a way to W’Holiness


Day #2… http://www.NapowriMo.net

There is no ownership with lives and life as we engage them
What lives in breath and light seeks our stewardship
Not the embrace of arms and minds that contract freedom
Restrict the essence of life unfolding as it will

In healthy boundaries laid in equal portion
We find the sweet pulse of hearts uniting
Of cellular memories reminding us of who we are
Of who we have always been when flesh and bone are nothing

More than the earth we mix with rain and sun
In the flourish of life everlasting beyond what is imagined
In the being here for this Earthly moment in a turning Galaxy
Of a landscape of Infinite proportion dancing in the star gaze

How do we own anything when we are already everything?
Stewarding our way for some goodness on this Earthly path
Inhaling each other as we pass in silence in a foreign moment
And you are inside me giving me life with out knowing you

I bow to you that gives me your air for my life in our recycling
There is no way to own you only to steward our journey together
Arms open, mind open, heart open for freedoms sake
In your essence I find mine and may we unfold

In this illusion together pure and W’holy as is the way of Spirit

STEWARDSHIP


15 may 2011  > 6  The Lovers

Self love, the unity of heart and mind, 
the stewardship of relationship


My short sleep and busy mind finds me noticing the green of 
the morning, beyond the flat, wet grey that drapes around me.  
I welcome it.  
I find it a verdant metaphor, grateful that it holds 
the space for the greening of the land that is me.  
I am reminded of the stewardship of the Land around me, 
the care and nurturance, the taking and the giving.  
The honoring of it’s seasons, the expression of it’s 
elemental stories, the depth and shallows of this Land 
I share my land with.
Am I stewarding  well, this land that is this body, this mind, 
this essence? 
Do I honor the wonder of my seasons, the depth of emotional sea, 
the clarity of a good mind?  
Do I tend to the seeds I plant with creative intention?
Do I nurture them, and bring them to flower, harvest the fruit 
of them and pleasure in the sharing?  
If I pollute my land, ‘toxify’ my mind, wound my essence-self, will 
I not dump this havoc, create negative impact, on all the 
lands around me? Won't tears fall?


Can you steward the Earth without first stewarding your earth?



Plant seeds of love on the footprints of toxic spill
Lay the altered on the altar of light and goodness



Tend to your garden, your life counts on it
Let it fill the heart with good sense



Celebrate those you love by being  your best self
Gift them with your seasons



Tend to your weeds in offering of their message
Prune what doesn’t serve the whole



Sacrifice your limitations to; the doesn’t matter  
Embrace the mystery of you.



Love relentlessly the closed hearted
Open your mind to the magic of possibility.



Breathe into life and death’s sacred journey
Steward the Land that is of you.
