All That We Can Sense But Cannot See

18157963_10155120780332457_2188883547547425626_n

It can be so simple; a sound made sacred, a lingering fragrance observed, a few words strung together in Prayer.

Ritual is when time is held still, for a moment, and our attention is turned to what is right in front of us, to what we are offering right now beyond ourselves.

Allowing a natural exchange with the breath, with stillness, and with what we can only sense but often cannot see.

All Is One

Take a seat at the foot of Eternity’s Altar
There is no one place for this, it is everywhere
Anywhere
Everywhere
Light the candle that is your Heart
This light radiates beyond all created boundaries.

If the sum of it all comes crashing in,
If the overwhelm engulfs you
Take a seat at the foot of Eternity’s Altar
And light the candle that is your Heart
This light radiates everywhere
Anywhere
Everywhere.

Everywhere Anywhere

Stepping Into The Fire

Kali Ma by Jenn Grosso

Our Lady of Light
Great Mother of Fire
Goddess of the Flame
Liberate us from ever-deeper layers of the lower-self.
Burn away what hinders us on our journey.
Om Mata Kali, Sri Ma Sri Ma.

“I am immersed in the flame –
The flame of time,
The flame of love,
The flame of life.
The universal fire flows through me.”
~ The Radiance Sutras, Yukti Verse 29

On Being Soft

10544373_10153096787352457_2630373531335215137_n

My mantra of late evolving… “Be soft, Tread lightly”.

+

A prayer for the unfolding light:

Great spirit and all unseen,
help me to always seek visions of world beauty,
to excavate the darkness with a wide open heart
and unfold out into the light with ease and grace.

We are seasons.

A Full Moon Prayer

On the cusp of one season ending, another beginning, Earth teach me to continuously keep my Heart Open to the movement within cycles. ‪

{We are seasons}

“Earth teach me stillness
as the grasses are stilled with light.
Earth teach me suffering
as old stones suffer with memory.
Earth teach me humility
as blossoms are humble with beginning.
Earth teach me caring
as the mother who secures her young.
Earth teach me courage
as the tree which stands alone.
Earth teach me limitation
as the ant which crawls on the ground.
Earth teach me freedom
as the eagle which soars in the sky.
Earth teach me resignation
as the leaves which die in the fall.
Earth teach me regeneration
as the seed which rises in the spring.
Earth teach me to forget myself
as melted snow forgets its life.
Earth teach me to remember kindness
as dry fields weep with rain.”
~ Ute Prayer

Trust in the Mystery

“… to be human
is to become visible
while carrying
what is hidden
as a gift to others…”
~ David Whyte

This is so beautiful. We all carry certain gifts, visible and hidden, known and unknown. Unknown sometimes even to ourselves, which is why it’s so important to honor who we are, just as we are.

A little prayer from the heart, to do just that. Open myself up to all the gifts unknown, to trust in the mystery.

Mother earth, father god,
Help me surrender.
Show me how to give in.
Into my heart,
And never give up.
