You went unnoticed until necessary
In this dessert of transformation
I surrender myself to the grit of your grace
to the primal poetics and movement
through the ages and stages
of our shared evolution
together to love
the birth of the artist within
Peace little ones, let yourself walk slowly
This is the masterpiece of many lifetimes
These creations are birthing new worlds
Together, and apart we are weaving
through our bodies to all that has felt so separate
Come home little ones...remember how you loved before you learned not to listen to yourself
to the hearts of others
Stop, listen and heal
the earth is here to hold us in this time of great undoing
and settling into the wisdom of
âare already at the centre of all that
âThere is a kind of grace that is gruesome
When you come across a new smile, a first touch, a twinkle of hope inspired by
A different...not what you were looking for
hoping for reality
But there it is.
That feels soft and gentle
Steady and kind
built with the strength of a shared empathy, and genuine encouragement
It has white hot messy human needs
Right at the centre
There it is, in the swirling searing moments of change you never saw coming...or perhaps spent weeks and months delaying
Your blood memory bubbling with pride
The gentle imprint of everyone who has ever loved you
Cheering you on
As you take your next step toward home
Well folks, I tried to "be efficient" and write while this video was loading. It appears that it erases what one has written during that process once the video is fully uploaded....UGH.
So I will wait for another time to write a full post.
For tonight, may this video serve you. It is 8min in length and at around the 5 minute mark I begin to offer some practical and simple strategies for reducing fear in the body.
Reducing fear leaves your body with added energy for staying healthy, calm and connected.
Remember, we are literally ALL in this together.
Let's take this unwanted, but non the less available opportunity to "up our self-care" as an expression of our love, respect and support of each other.
Together, we can empower ourselves and each other to let COVID tilt us collectively toward generosity over gluttony & compassion over competition.....SHARE the TP folks - everybody needs it.
If we remember we are literally wired for empathy, we can claim this moment in history to challenge outdated narratives of "every man for himself" and begin to add energy AND action to the lost, but not forgotten wisdom of "no (wy)man is an island" and "It takes a village" ....to do almost anything. To raise a child, calm our fear, bolster our brave muscles, all of it is easier when we know that we have support.
So let's listen to science, and invest in our sanity. Sooth your nervous system, wash your hands - both are equally important, in very different ways.
But more on that tomorrow.
Artist. Speaker. Teacher.
Hey there lovely...
I'm glad you stopped by.
