There lives inside
A space created by pain
Cultivated by love
Sustained by perseverance
There lives inside
A will so strong
That nothing can stop it
Nothing can make it weak
There lives inside
A voice that has waited to speak
To let me know the things
I’ve been craving my whole life
And I hear it
And I hold it
And I honor it
I offer it the love
That lives inside
The integrated space
There lives inside

What a gorgeous piece Lorrie! 🙂 <3 Filled with comfort, Self-Love, empowerment and faith 🙂 <3 It made me smile 🙂 I am sending you lots and lots of Love! <3 <3 <3
Thank you my dear Trini! Yes…it is full of all of those things. I am happy it made you smile…I would always wish for you…dear sweet Angel…to have a smile on your face! I hope it warmed up for you! <3
🙂 It is still super cold!! Today I used a blowdryer, you know that you use to dry your hair, to warm up my toes! hihihihihii 🙂 You and your mother are in my paryers Lorrie, I hope you are doing okay and that you are also taking good care of yourself 🙂 <3
You are very perceptive dear Trini! When I finally stopped “doing” everything I needed to do….I got the flu! I am on day 4…and today is the first day I felt I could post. I wanted to on the other days, but I just couldn’t! I know that my immune system is/was compromised. It is really terrible when you have a disease that presents with flu-like symptoms AND you get the “flu” on top of it!! But I am taking good care of myself. I will be good as new soon! Thank you dear one! <3
Continue to take good care of yourself Lorrie! Stay in bed with warm blankets and hot chocolate and a good book! 🙂 <3
Thank you dear friend 🙂
And it can never die.
NEVER!!! You know of what I speak!! Hope all is well with you Hariod. Thanks so much for stopping by <3
Beautiful Lorrie. This is filled with so much goodness, hope, empowerment and spaciousness. It reminds me of a talk I recently listened to by Pema Chodron about spaciousness, making room inside by embracing our hurts and dislikes while giving away our love and likes. blessings my friend 🙂
Wow, Brad! Your response is like a poem itself! And I really like the idea of making room inside…I think sometimes when we go through hard times it feels like it is all cluttered…all taken up. But that is never true. What blossoms inside is never ending….and can never be FULL…as long as we give it away we always make room for more! Thank you dear friend. I was just at your site probably at the same time you were here! <3
crossing paths in the light! Off to work I go. 🙂
Oh my, Lorrie, I don’t often read things that give me chill bumps but this did! This is simply stunningly amazing and filled with so much sanctity. You were definitely a messenger from the voice of the Holy Spirit with this one! I will be reblogging this today. You go girl!!!! Love and hugs, Natalie <3 <3 <3
Oh, my, dear friend Natalie! I love your response!!! I do. I thank you for your beautiful words…and I know that you know what you said is completely true! I know that I was only selected to write the words…and I am so HONORED to do it. Thank you so much for spreading these words. <3 Much love!!
Do take care of yourself, Lorrie
Thank you dear Yoshiko!! I am offering self-love and compassion!! Much love to you <3 <3

Touching, beautiful and resonating with truth…this came from that place inside, for sure! Thanks so much for sharing.. “Where faith meets Grace”, love that. Be well! I hope you feel better soon<3
Thank you Cynthia! I’m so happy these words resonated with you 🙂 It’s funny…I added those last few lines while I was typing the post…I don’t normally edit my poems at all. What you see is what moved through my pen…but those words had to come out 🙂 Thanks for the well wishes…I will be up and running soon! <3

I am so happy to share! Thanks for stopping by Neha! <3
Once again I am amaze at your words so deep and profound
Thank you Andy! I’m so happy you enjoyed it 🙂
Beautiful powerful words. They speak deeply. Thankyou Lorrie.
Thank you Karen. It makes me happy that they touched you 🙂 I’m happy you stopped by! <3
The inside we all share, where we all meet… I went there once and now I’m here, reading this… Such power… Such tenderness… So many knowings without forgetting… So many possibilities without failure… So many beings without over-crowding… That part, I don’t get… It’s really not fair to the rest of reality that we’re walking indomitabilities… Smiling, holy cheaters… 🙂
Ah! What a super comment to read first thing this morning, Michael 🙂 This place is miraculous and I want to stay here! I know that I spend more and more time there as my consciousness continues to develop. I worry that I will be greedy in my desire to attain full fledged “membership.” But for now, I will be satisfied with all I learn that raises me higher in the evolution of my soul!
Your words are a poem in itself…that is one of the things I truly love about you! Your words are like a song…they impart such knowledge and beauty and I can always hear the melody…and the harmony!! <3
This is so beautiful. It maid intangible things tangible while I read it.
I’m so grateful you had that experience…and that you shared it with us here! Thank you Theresa <3 I wish you many blessings!

This is right on time with what’s going on with freeing the muse that was sleeping in me. Yet is resonates with so many others! Lorrie Bowden is on to something big here!
Wow Lorrie, this resonated in about a billion ways…methinks our minds are on the same journey. Huge hugs, smiles, and always love.
Not only our minds…but it would seem our bodies as well!! 😉 Thank you dear friend <3
Just beautiful <3
Thank you Laurie!! Hope all is super in your world! <3
Well, you know.. as always.. super and magical and confusing and difficult all at the same time.. It’s okay… always it’s okay. <3 I was happy to see you at my blog.. and I realized it had been too long since I visited. I am letting go a lot more.. who knew there could be more. <3 But it feels really nice. Whatever shows up is ok. Sometimes there are nice surprises.. like you. 🙂
I love your response in so many ways, Laurie! Isn’t it amazing what we find when we can truly let go! I think it is a life’s work…sometimes I think I will “get there” and I do…for a bit. But it is a constant give and take….and being able to stay in the present moment is the key. Being able to connect to that source of all things is the other. I wish you much beauty and peace. It was really nice to see you too! <3
<3 Yes, I think we often try too hard. I still do and then when I let go and trust myself to do what is natural I wonder why I didn't do it before. <3
I understand completely, Laurie!! Many blessings to you and your family! <3
Wonderful… Your voice is in harmony.. beautiful words that live inside your heart.. Thank you for sharing them.. Hugs Sue <3
Thank you Sue. Yes…harmonious is a good description…and these words do live in my heart…Thank you for noticing that <3
Just amazing! Such a blessing to read!
Thank you! Thank you for your wonderful comment…and for making me read my own words again…for the support from my own soul is much needed right now. Much love and many blessings to you!
