"Make beauty despite the devastation."
So much on Earth (of Earth) is hurting
and yet these trees—tall—making beauty!
I would be returning to the Earth what had stopped working: either she would take it back within herself and make it her own, or it would become a seed for something so new, it is even beyond imagining.
"Making beauty is a choice"
Making beauty is a choice
in service of the immensity of love we feel--
Warrior! focus on every breath--
every breath opening the door of gentleness before you
Sometimes you don't know how the design will complete itself
It is about trusting, holding what you are given close to your heart and walking
and the right flower shows up
Trusting the gentleness of your steps that are walking you forward--
in them is the strength you need to live this day
And then it is not enough to think about it.
You have to surrender. And that is the hardest part.
And all you have is your next breath, next step
and the power to make a choice
to listen to the voice from the other side of night
and then there will be a bird you can follow
A falling leaf will acknowledge you
A boat will open up in slab of stone before you
This the lesson I am learning, dear one. Each time grief shows up, your heart grows even wider.
It's the moment to choose deeper healing. It's the moment to choose conscious self-knowledge, vibrant self-love. It's time to turn to myself, to mystery, and to turn over a new leaf, or maybe a new lush forest.
