A Real Human Being

If your measure is strong
And you stay present
Whether the wild wind blows
Or the sea storms its froth
If your vision is true
And your heart is noble

If you keep open
When all around you close
And stay humble
When you meet the righteous

If you get up when you fall
And understand
The falling and the rising
If you can see wholeness
In the midst of separation
And love in the face of fear

If you can be equanimous,
Gentle, compassionate and kind
Even as you enter battle

You have become
A real human being.

Waking the Sleeping Beauty

Each of us longs for love
It is our secret hidden desire
Not just ordinary love
But the kind of love
That opens doors
That have been closed for so long

We dare not even dream of it
In this cruel and mediocre world
Bereft of its wildness and beauty

We long to receive and give it
We long to walk in it and dance in it
It’s what we are made for
This innocence and openness
It’s the fulfillment of human destiny

I speak of that kind of love
Pure, true, honest, and open love
That lies deep in each of us
Waiting to be awoken

If ever there was a time
To awaken the beauty
That sleeps within
It is now.

An Unstoppable Force of Goodness

There is an awakening happening
The veil is being lifted
Old masters, wisdom teachers
Enlightened ones
Are returning as collective rays
No one individual holds the answers
For the answer is in the collective
Collective wisdom
Guided by feminine tendencies
But not just of women

There is a new dawn happening
The suppression of nature
Inside and outside
Has run its course
And now it is awakening
It will be messy
And chaotic
And those that hold on tightly
And those that cannot embrace love
Will cling hold of their illusory power

But there is an awakening happening
And the movement of the wave
Is now unstoppable
No one is choosing it
It’s happening through us
The movement of evolution
Playing itself out
But we get to serve it
Even with our fears and doubts

If there is anything left to serve these days
Serve that awakening with all your heart
But not on the outside
On the inside, in your own heart
Be committed to awakening
From the dream of separation
From the tyranny of mind
By letting go of all that is not love
By releasing old wounds that hold you back
By releasing the mind that wants to rule everything
By becoming so free you are
An unstoppable force of goodness.

PHOENIX RISING

Something is unravelling
On planet earth
The unspoken law
Of mind over heart
Competition over connection
Fear over love
Is unravelling

And something new is beginning to emerge
Something fresh and real
Something essentially feminine
Yet not just of women
Based in truth
And authentic relating
Something that TAKES CARE OF THINGS
With a loving embrace
Something not based in mere self preservation
But in the deepest understanding
Of life’s connectedness.

The old ways are dying
And the old patriarchal rule is dying
That’s why everything is so uncertain
And the foundations are shaking
It’s a good thing
A scary thing
A necessary thing
Out of the dust will arise
A PHOENIX.
