Where was her voice

When others did not hear?  

Where was her true heart

When others did not see?  

Always, always within her


Shining bright

Love and desire burned

Deep hunger.  

Deep need. 

For freedom 

For expression

For life

She found her voice

Delighted in the gift
Knew there was no other path
and shared it with the world

No matter the cost

No matter the cost

This is who I am

Hear me

See me

Know me


Hear my words

Feel the music enter your being


Entrain with me

Entrain with us

Receive balm for the soul

Healing for the heart

This is why I am here.  

I am a bard of Love

I am a bard of the Real.  

This is why I am here

The Universal Voice

Speaks through me

I open to the gift of it

I am a bard of the Real

I am a bard of Love


Method to the Madness

We are innocent. We are holy.

I received a vision
about the day I was born
Many loving Beings
greeted me
One by one they held my feet, 
bowed their head, and said,
"Welcome.  I love you.  
I honor your life journey.
You are innocent.
You are holy."

The room was filled with
Love, joy and celebration

And I knew
That we have all received this greeting
That we are all honored 
for our journeys on this planet.  
We are known
We are seen
We are loved 

Dear friends
I bow at your feet 
In honor and love
I honor your journeys of sorrow and joy
Suffering and courage
You are beautiful 
You are loved

We are innocent.  We are holy.
We are innocent.  We are holy.  
We are innocent.  We are holy.

This is your calling
This is your calling

to love yourself
to love yourself

you are perfectly you
you are perfectly you

no matter how you feel
no matter how many times you think you've failed.
you have not

you are perfectly you
you are perfectly, brilliantly you

Love is forgiveness
Love is non-judgment
Love is compassion
Love is kindness
Love is grace

This is your calling
This is your calling

To love yourself
To love yourself

You are beautiful
You are seen
You are precious
You are loved

Deep Roots

There is one Source
One Love.  One Light.  One Goodness 
From which we all come
To which we long to return  
Hunger and desire
send out tendrils 
like roots 
burrowing into soil
Seeking comfort and sustenance 

Shallow roots find ready pleasures
Temporary relief
Easy and sweet
Yet the ache grows
The soul knows the difference

As shallow roots are released
Deeper roots can begin to grow
Finding connection to true heart
True love
True healing
True Source

Clinging to the immediate
Muffles deeper needs and desires.
In the letting go
We receive

Can we release that which no longer serves us?
Can we love ourselves enough?
Can we love and hold each other 
through the losing
the grieving
 the finding
the knowing? 


Does anything matter 
more than this?

Opening Heart

My roots reach deep into the earth
Releasing.  Receiving. 
My branches reach high into the heavens
Receiving. Releasing.  Receiving. 

My heart opens

Veils part
I emerge 
Bright shining light  
Beautiful bright shining light
No longer hidden
I cannot return to the darkness
Can no longer hide in my smallness
I remember this magic
I remember this magic

I am my Beloved’s 
My Beloved is mine.
The Lover of my soul
God of my understanding
Is within me always
I am never alone

Garden of the Heart

My heart is filled with seeds
Seeds of love, joy and peace
Seeds of anger, fear and despair

Which do I water?
Which do I feed?  

My heart flows with energy
The light of attention brings growth and strength 
The darkness of inattention weakens and kills

What do I water?  
What do I feed?   

I open my heart to all.
I see the longing 
The longing for goodness
For justice
For peace

I speak hope
I speak joy 
I speak life

All of our hearts are filled with seeds
Which do we water?
Which do we feed? 
Our neighbors' hearts are filled with seeds
(and everyone is our neighbor)
What do we water?  
What do we feed?
What do we give?  

Can you notice?  
Meet anger with kindness
Hatred with love?
Knowing the seeds of peace reside in every heart 
Waiting to be seen, watered and fed?
No simple task
No simple task, this gardening of the heart
This is real
This is very real
Your kindness
Your love
Your compassion
Your smiles
Change the world
One seed at a time
One heart at a time

If you're smiling right now
You are watering some good seeds
If you're smiling through heartache and pain
Even more so
Bless you, bless you, bless you

May all beings be filled with loving kindness
May all beings be free from suffering
May all beings be well
May all beings be at peace
May all beings be joyful

Calm. Calm. Belong

Her beautiful smile shines
From photo after photo
She remembers
That she knew
Always knew
She didn't belong
An expert chameleon shaping herself to fit

The internal outsider
Sure that her otherness was sensed
Hiding behind the laughter and smiles

She looks through those photos 
And knows
Understands . . .
She always belonged

Sweet, sweet child
There are no lines
But those we imagine
Those we were given and believed
The lines and divisions 
Are the lie
Never you
Never you


Those barricades can only hold for so long . . .

She began to breathe
To breathe at the thought of such freedom
She stood and whispered to her child.  "Belong"
She held the child and whispered
With calm, calm; "Belong"

R.E.M. "Belong"
