From the shores of wholeness

You are not as alone as you feel.
There’s always something reaching out to you
from the shores of wholeness,
longing to connect you once again.

Shaped by love

Shaped by love,
designed for the journey before us,
we wait in reflective stillness
for the inspiration to take up the oars
and embark on our next adventure.

Works in progress

Truth is,
we’re all works in progress,
filled with good intentions, but still imperfect.
Be kind to yourself, and to one another,
and do the best you can
with what you’ve managed to achieve so far.

The light at the root of your soul

Try to keep your focus
not on what’s bearing down on you,
but instead on what’s lifting you up:
that inner buoyancy that resists and believes;
the relentless, infinite, unfathomable light
that lives at the root of your soul.

Inspiring resilience

There will be days when death and loss
hit very close to home.
Do not let their proximity
inhibit your capacity to bloom:
By bravely blooming in the face of loss
we honor and remember
that which has gone before
and inspire the world around us to resilience.

Knitting our own prisons

Busily knitting ourselves protection against the unexpected,
We fail to see how successfully we’ve managed 
to box ourselves in...

The beauty that is now

Look around you:
Things are always evolving, each minute
different from the next. And yes,
some moments are more beautiful than others.
Stay focused anyway: if you spend your time
remembering the past or imagining the future,
you just might miss the beauty that is now...
