Greetings from San Francisco, Nayarit, Mexico!!
I'm hoping this blog entry finds you all well and gracefully navigating the changes in inner-landscape that are being required of all of us by Universal and Astrological energetic forces as of late. It has been an intensely active time energetically in the last two months. If it has you reeling slightly, or more than slightly, I encourage you to tap into your deep and intuitive senses of compassion and love. Especially were these two graces are directed inward. It is so important to have compassion for ourselves, and those in our lives, in times of struggle and change.
Below I share a poem that I wrote on the topic of love. As you read it and hear words such as love and partner, please read it in its broadest of meanings: To include love and partnership with self, and your Divine support system, as well as your human support system. To include your frienships and mentorships as well as your romantic partnership. Love is so central to our existence and we can sometimes become myopic and single minded in our definitions of love. As we narrow the scope and become more exclusive with our openness to and concepts of love, we unnecessarily limit the connections and support that we can feel from the larger human and spiritual community that is here, attempting to support us, if we would only let that support in. I share this poem and the quality of love and compassion that it requires of us, with a deep sense of gratitude that you are all on this journey with me.
With much love and gratitude,
You see there's this certain vibration
I'm really trying to reach
To help me open to the flow
A thin veil I'm trying to breach
It requires an abundance of self-love
A relatively new concept for me
It leaves no room for compromise
Certain things simply no longer comfort me
It feels rather demanding
Who am I to ask so much?
It just won't stop commanding
I don't want to use a crutch
I'm ready to stand ~strong and bright
Nothing broken inside my heart
A partner must be compassionate and upright
Are you ready to play that part?
It really is essential
That we both be on the same page
A relationship ~ornamental
Is the equivalent of a cage
The heart is a sacred temple
It's also a terrific gauge
The messages it sends ~true and simple
Letting us know when we've lost our way
