Only to Love

20170501_204028

As I walk so freely on my path

I know in my heart

That I am guided by love

The faith I feel as each obstacle is unveiled

Surpasses the fear of the multiple unknowns

I look inside through different eyes

And there is a kaleidoscope of colors

That grow in their hue

And depth of meaning

What once was used to hurt

Now only shows in shadows

Weeds to be plucked

Origin to be noticed

I am growing my love

From the inside out

And the light that surrounds my being

Has an essence that I felt before

And I remember

When my soul

Was tethered

Only to love

Blessitude!

PURE…DIVINE…LOVE

105

The light enters

a tiny pin prick to your soul

at first it is disturbing

because one becomes

accustomed to the dark

your eyes squint because the glare

ricochets off of internal thoughts

and you think to reach for dark glasses

But then slowly the light starts to shed

knowing…remembering

a magnificence that lives inside

Little by little

more is unveiled

and love is gathered

into one centralized space

until it is strong enough

to make a dent in the darkness

One by one

virtues are illuminated

and there is an inkling that what

lives inside is something very good

and you realize that you want

more of that

the warm gentle feeling of love

begins to spread internally

and it changes the landscape

of cold hard rocky places

In the beginning

like any beginning

there is a learning curve

and in the beginning

your urge is to use dynamite

to blast through the core

of the hard mountain

that exists in the middle

The first few attempts

cause more damage than good

and you realize

to use such destructive force

contradicts the power

So you get busy

with hammer and chisel

and some days the carving

is designed to take something out

and other days you concentrate

on what isn’t there

Merrily you sculpt from the inside

and before you know it

the light has gained the upper hand

there is more light than darkness

and what is revealed on the outside

begins to take shape as well

And every once in a while

you tap, tap, tap,

and a giant boulder releases its grip

and passes from the depths of your soul

and the light that is shown

has great magnitude

and the feeling caresses you

with the most gentle love

that could match the most powerful of blows

and you are euphoric

because you think this is what Heaven is

and you are willing to give up

anything you have

to stay in this energy

to continue to

feel this

But it slowly becomes normal

as your eyes adjust to the light

and there may be a twinge of regret

and the human mind will trick you

into believing that you’ve lost something

and an accompanying melancholy

may set in

And this is where

I urge you to realize

that there is no loss

and

there is no gain

What exists inside your soul

has always been

and will always be

Pure

Divine

Love

Blessitude

A New Day

20150812_194234

Reality stokes a fire

of warm burning colors

that fade with the sun

as it sets in time

to the beating of my heart

like a clock’s second hand

it roves around

and comes back again

a new day

a new chance

a new way

I am blessed

with the power of choice

I know my soul is

refreshed every time

I react in an authentic way

to an idea that creation

placed in my heart

Blessitude…

Solitude…

my beautiful…

Attitude!

My Friend’s New Book! :)

header_background_cannonbook

In a week that was filled with very powerful emotions and deep understanding, I am filled with gratitude.  I can think of no better way to release some of this grace than to introduce my friend and recently published author, Michael Mark.

Michael’s book, ‘A Cannon, a Heart, and Now This…’ PROSE POETRY, is a compilation of work that exudes LOVE that stems from the energy of creation!  He is a master at taking the reader on a spiritual journey, with twists and turns, with questions and answers, and with beauty that comes from a very pure space.

I adore Michael’s work, and his soul!  I was so excited when his book arrived in the mail and the energy I feel when I hold it in my hands is nothing less than incredible!!

If you have not met Michael, he writes at his blog, Embracing Forever.

I wish you all a week filled with love and beauty!

Blessitude

Meditation Dream ~ 8/21/15

20150708_170349

Old habits die hard.  Or so I’ve been told.  I shrugged and tried to let it roll off my back…pain bubbles that can’t penetrate…

But it was more of the same. The same kind of hurt…the same kind of duck maneuver, and I thought of Albert Einstein and I knew it was insanity.

Time to move on.  Once and for all.  Octopus…invading my mind tells a story.  ‘Detach a limb at will to distract a predator,’  hmmmm….

A meditation bath…a limb removed and buried…cleansing…clearing…

And the resulting poem paints its own picture:

Pain.

It’s always the same

Hard as I try to change it

It remains

Excluded.

like before

doesn’t matter how I crave it

I’m still ignored

Time.

for a change

I can’t keep repeating the same things

I’ll go insane

Coffin.

lowered to the ground

bury the limb that holds it all

never to be found

Cry.

I can barely breathe

each shovel of dirt may as well

be placed on top of me

Sad.

to see them go

I bade farewell and bless them all

viewed as friend and foe

Thank.

them for their role

the molten lava poured on my heart

did not deter my soul

Rain.

begins to fall

sprinkles the softened earth with life

beginning to heed the call

Sun.

begins to shine

flowers bloom a songbird sings

step in to what is mine

Power.

In the form of knowing

takes me by the hand

it’s always showing

Love.

from deep within

send it out to everyone

it’s a beautiful place to begin

Trust.

that it will come back

as long as you give you will receive

and never experience lack

Peace.

from all your woes

feel it from the top of your head

to the very tip of your toes

Hope.

for all mankind

that you know the strength you’re made of

and that you’ll always find

You.

direct the show

I wish you love and kindness

and that you’ll always know

that its all

up to you

have presence of mind

and come from love

in everything you do!

Blessitude

L’ETOILE DU BERGER (Shepherd’s Star)

Collaboration with my dear SoulMate, Fre’de’ric
.

.

L’ETOILE DU BERGER (Shepherd’s Star)
Looking for
my Sheperd’s Star
I noticed
there was one star
that appeared to shine brighter
than any other in the sky
that night
.
I walked
and each step brought me closer
to the light
that my soul was born of
.
miracle
out of time and space
pure sparkle
nothing
will ever dull
.
forever
this brilliance
will be accessible
sensible
sublime to the touch
.
chime of Infinitude
transcendent and worldly
at the same time
as close
as you want it
to be
 .
My journey cocooned
filled with a knowing
connection,
protection,
.
Celestial Grace
.
Blessitude
Lorrie & Fre’de’ric ❤
