FEAST ON THE SURRENDER


13 Nov. 2019

Lean into the lonely places

Lay down with the shadow dancers

Listen deep into the old stories

   of imaged truths poured from

   the vessel of many yesterdays

~

Dosed in the blood of lineages

Down the drain of old hopes

Dictates passed down in the all around

    making a depository of other’s

    dreams and imaged forecasts

~

Held in the spaces of unrequited

Hid in the in-between of longing and yearn

Hold on to the thin cord of relationship

    for memories seek safe harbor in the

    stripping away what was never yours

~

Shed what was not the gift of you

Single out the spacious self’s dream

Silence the busy minds need to know

   for there is knowing in the quiet voice

   of the heart waiting for your listening

~

Feast on the surrender of release

Find comfort in the lonely places

Free up the impose of other’s dreams

   as you feel the fullness of finding yourself

   unfolding perfectly as you are

IT’S NOT TIME YET


28 April 2019

A pantoum 

~

It’s not the time yet for leaving

There is still breath and sight

Still the gathering of thoughts

In the construct of living

~

There is still breath and sight

And so much more to share, to say

In the construct of living

In the coming of unbearable loss

~

And so much more to share, to say

Heart to heart exchange, a steady beat

In the coming of unbearable loss

When the Infinite has you again 

~

Heart to heart exchange, a steady beat

The feel of false permanency rising

When the Infinite has you again

And your soul travels the vast unknown

~

The feel of false permanency rising

A surrender of gravitational pull on life

And your soul travels the vast unknown

Having to let go of this mundane living

~

A surrender of gravitational pull on life

As the Divine essence of Spirit calls

Having to let go of this mundane living

These pleasure of physical reality releasing

~

As the Diving essence of Spirit calls

Still the gathering of thoughts

These pleasures of physical reality releasing

It’s not the time yet for leaving

13/4/FOOLISHLY. SURRENDER DOROTHY


20  july  2011  >  13/4/0  >  Death/Emperor/Fool

 

What need letting go of today?

What have you resisted that needs you give a little?

Can you give up your attachment and let it be free?

  

Practicing what I preach…  I write this daily numerology linking it up with the Tarot cards everyday.  A little invitation to consider the ebb and flow of life and maybe inspire you to probe a little deeper into questions that invite new possibilities.  And… I like to think I do it for myself, a reminder of what I might be mind-full of each day.  What I have been noticing is that I write it and conveniently forget it.  

WAT?  yep… I KNOw..RIGHT?…I’m hoping that it sits in my consciousness somewhere and I try to trust that it will rise up and tap me on the proverbial shoulder when I need an insight.   Mostly, I write it and don’t give it a second thought alll dang day.

Don’t  let the Death card throw you off.  It’s about transformation, letting go, surrender, endings that open space for new beginnings.  

Death says,  “Sorry, it’s not working for ya.  Too much stuff, relationship that’s not so good, work is poopy, you’re attached all over the place to things in life that don’t serve your life. Dump ‘em.  Refresh. Give space.  Transform what needs letting go of.

The EMperor says, “Good, now you’ve cleared the way and have some space, why not rebuild and organize your castle. Why not set some new boundaries?  Get grounded.  Set some rules that work for you.  What is essential to your life?”  

The Fool says,   “OH there you go again, building, filling, organizing, and then dumping it all and starting over.  Don’t get me wrong, you can do that, cause that’s what you people do.  I say, be free, unencumbered by stuff.   Take the risk that you will be absolutely fine just as you are.  Life awaits you to live it…Jump on in to  and see what happens.”

 

 

                                Surrender Dorothy

                           lay your bloom at death’s doorway

                               transform the way home

 

                             do it scared and jump

                           risk in life’s transformation

                                 know infinity

 

                         make home in the heart

                         your temple is bone and flesh

                                lay roots in the wind
