Rebuilding Altars

Dedicating them to The Great Mother:

To the Dark Goddesses,
to the Inner Flame of Re-Creation,
to standing unapologetically in Truth.

In Truth.

Let the rest burn away.

To the Altar of our Belonging

13716148_10154241864702457_4335347372038173483_n

We know so much more
than we think we know.

The whole entire world
and worlds beyond our own
are etched on the inside of our hearts.

What if you stopped
to really see
and to really hear?

Eyes towards the sky
our vision doesn’t end with the blue sky above
we can see beyond into the great expanse of the future.

Ears to the ground
we can hear the creaking of all the old bones
everything that has come before us.

None of it begins or ends with us
it has begun beyond the constraints of time
and will end well after the decay of this physical vessel.

You can see and hear everything
from past present and future
if you know how to truly see and hear.

If you know the etchings in your heart
that have been there before you knew
that will be there as you continue to be

With everything, as everything.

The Heart As Compass

“And the way forward always in the end
the way that you followed, the way that carried you
into your future, that brought you to this place,
no matter that it sometimes took your promise from you,
no matter that it had to break your heart along the way…

and that every step along the way, you had carried
the heart and the mind and the promise
that first set you off and drew you on and that you were
more marvelous in your simple wish to find a way
than the gilded roofs of any destination you could reach…”

~ Excerpt from Santiago by David Whyte

An Altar To The Soft

When the world seems hard and sharp, when we are moving through the thickness. Be gentle with yourself. Treading softly and lightly, flowing around rather than up against.

“Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.” ~ Iain Thomas

February Stillness

“Stillness is the altar of spirit.” ~ Paramahansa Yogananda

+ Don’t ever forget…

‪{Your true nature is luminous}

“Forgetfulness of your real nature is true death; remembrance of it is rebirth”

“Remain still, with the conviction that the Self shines as everything yet nothing, within, without, and everywhere.” ~ Ramana Maharshi
