I AM LEAVING WORDPRESS

This is it
I am leaving wordpress after 5 years of poetry

It has been wonderful
But enough is enough

If you want to stay in touch and follow my poetry
You can find me on substack
https://kavijezziehockaday.substack.com

My subscription will run until the end of this month and then expire.

Thank you so much for following me, liking my poems and paying some attention.
The poetry is not stopping, only my chosen and preferred platform.
I still do all my poetry free and substack is no different.

So if you fancy continuing the journey jump on.
Otherwise be well and be blessed.

FALL INTO SKY NATURE

The tangled web we weave
Entangling ourselves and each other
In the stickiness
Like a glue that wants to harden
And solidify into something fixed

All this entangling must come undone
Sometimes in one fell swoop
Often as a gradual erosion

The inherited and conditioned patterns
Woven into us unconsciously
Parents, religion, morality
All the ancestral wounds
Playing themselves out in each of us

All this must cease being the driver
Of our urges, our habits and our addictions

This is a call to become naked and innocent
To fall into the unknowing-ness prior to personality

It is no small call, not for the feint of heart
It is a warriors challenge, for it takes great courage
To take everything off
To remove the veils
To open Pandora’s box
To meet the ghosts
To face any and all demons
Not from a place of war
But from the deepest peace and openness
As the sky accepts the tumult of the storm.

THE DANCE

When the compassionate heart is discovered
When the knowing of the deepest love is revealed
It changes everything
And you will never want to leave there again

And all the forgetting and getting lost
And the returning home
Will become a dance
Instead of a burden.

LIVE YOUR TRANSFORMATION

If you truly believe
In your deepest instinct
In your heart of hearts
In your innate wisdom
That we are divine beings
Connected to all that is
With inner authority
And imbued with a magnificence
Beyond the self that is
Conditioned to smallness
And held captive by fear

Now is the time to live that knowing
Not sometime in the future
When it feels more comfortable
Or you feel more awake or aware
Or more confident and secure

But now
For there is dramatic change taking place
In every quadrant of the universe
And within each living cell
Of each living being
And within the fabric of reality itself

And you, and I, are being called
To embrace the transformation
And live from the truth we know
And the love we are

We are not not passengers
We are leaders and participants.

THE WARRIOR WALKS WITH A TENDER HEART

As though it matters
As though we matter
As though everything we do
And everything we say
And everything we are
Is some kind of prayer

‘May I be at one with nature
May I be at one with all that is,
Not above or below anything else,
Walking harmoniously in the world.’

THE SHIFT IS WITHIN

We are hurtling towards collectivization
It is inevitable, written in the stars,
The Shift of the Ages

What kind of collectivization
Is what the inner and outer struggle
Is all about

Will it be about freedom and unity and love
Will each individuation serve the whole
Recognizing itself in the other
Creating a world guided by enlightenment

Or will it be collective tyranny
Driven by fear, division and mass control
Creating a world lost in separation and paranoia

While we may not be able to do anything much about the outside world
We can do so very much about the inside world
AND THAT BECOMES THE OUTSIDE WORLD

Start within…It is the only way.

LINE IN THE SAND

Power, authority, dignity
The truth of us
Usurped in youth
By conscious or unconscious action
Becomes occluded
Covered by shame, guilt, rage, unworthiness
Which embeds itself in the delicate human design
Seemingly impossible to remove
But wait!

There comes a time when we must decide
That we are no longer defined by the insults
That happened in the past
The line in the sand, the ’no more’ place within

And when we do that we are called to our inner authority
And it is challenged by the world, by us, by others
And we may struggle to find who we are
Beyond the embedded self protective mechanism
But there is freedom in all of us
And nothing that we really are vanishes forever
And we have more power than we realize

Spirituality doesn’t do this for us
Other people can’t do this for us
We must find the line ourselves
And stand upon it
Over and over again if need be
With a kind of resolve
That makes it clear to the universe
We are done being defined by all that happened.

REMEMBERING HEART

A collective that cannot share its sorrows
Cannot sit together in its grief and suffering

And see each one in the eyes of the other

A people so lost in individuation
It loses its humanity

Has not lost its mind
It has lost its heart
Forgotten itself
Fallen under a spell

The task of the restless one
Is to remember their own heart
Uncover it from all that has covered it
And then to shine it out
So others may also remember theirs

That is all we can really do
The rest is up to the divine.

SING YOUR OWN SONG

The heart longs
To sing it’s song
In the morning
And in the evening
Whether that song
Is of joy or sorrow
It is not the song that matters
But the expression
Into the universe

The mind says no
You’re not good enough
The song is lame
It’s too revealing
You are too sensitive
Too vulnerable
To be singing such things

You listen to the mind
But over time
The frustration is immense
The blocking of natural desire
To sing your unique song
Starts to kill you
Or make you depressed

You may have even forgotten
You had a song to sing
Because you are now distracted
By all the others things
That have gone wrong
As a consequence
Of forgetting to sing your song

But wait!
Friend, it is never too late
To sing your song
To give expression
To your uniqueness
And I’m not talking about
Mouthing from your ego
I’m talking about
Saying your blessed name
Into the eternal ocean
From your soul.
