Daily Bliss – September 11

The Angels remind us that it’s our responsibility to not only remember the past, but to work to understand it too, so that we do not keep repeatedly hurting each other, generation after generation.  It starts with us.  It starts today.

A Light for the World

light for the world

The seat of the soul lies buried deep;
It’s time to let it out,
Dig it up and share it with the world
The time for fear is past

This life is different,
It holds a power greater than any before
The power of change,
The power of love,
Stronger, more attainable than ever

The world may think us mad for claiming to see it,
The scorched earth before us belying all the senses
But we know it,
It’s in our bones, our DNA,
In the particles which create us from the inside out
We know it because it lives in us,
Breathes in us
It longs to be free of us,
To reside in the world as us

We can no longer ignore, in fear and distrust,
What we know in our bones to be true,
For it is in us, it IS us
And we are a light for the world

Purging

Woman hand holding sparkler outdoors

What are you purging,
What need not be part of you anymore
That it so forcefully releases
Like fireworks in the night sky
Within the heart of your own being?

What pain can you let go,
What ancient past emerging
Asks not to be still buried
But rather to be free,

Out of the cave of your belly
And into the light to be atoned
And disseminated
Its particles scattering to the Universe
Becoming the fodder for your growth
Instead of caged rebellion,
Becoming the light
Which feeds your soul

These Ghosts

Above
The ghosts, they come and go
Lingering in the darkness of a crowded mind
Moving in and out, wispy and ethereal,
Making space for their meanderings
Between the walls of untrained thoughts
And loose-lipped whispers

Haunting, magical
Inescapable grace
Whispers of the past
Harbingers of a future yet unseen

These ghosts, they dominate the mind
When the mind dwells in past affairs
Swirling in and through the soul,
Making present lives but a hazy dream

These ghosts, they are but fiction,
A fragment of a dream already dreamt
No amount of clinging will bring them back
Or make them real again
These ghosts, just let them be

All That Is

Mans Journey of the Soul

When we plant the seeds of wisdom
We grow with the truth inside
Ancient longing
True belonging
Connected to all that is

Fear cannot overtake the truth
Hidden deep within
On the surface
Etched in stone
Carved into the essence of all that is

True wisdom lies in the willingness to let go
Faith in a path laid out in lifetimes past
A compass for life
Now reflected in the light
A path to follow to the light of all that is

I AM

Flash blu

I am
The light in the darkness
The one I seek to drag me up
Soothe my soul
Embittered by the wounds of youth

I am
The power for which I yearn
The strength to overcome and start anew
To right the wrongs of a past
Lustful for drama and pain

I am
The lens through which
You see my soul
Today bitter, tomorrow emboldened
A flash of greatness a thousand lifetimes in the making

I AM

Heartsong

Bedroom with moonlight and smoke

Twilight sparkles in violet eyes
that gaze upon a star-filled night
ponder the vastness of the world in view
questions if there is any more in this lifetime or the next

Moonbeams shower illustrious glory
a worried mind with hopes for tomorrow
soaks in the rays, feels the loving arms
of those gone before,
soothing lullabies for an ancient generation
raise laughter to the sky

Through thick and thin
disaster and delight
she takes the moon to be her partner,
her loving mistress of the night
who fuels her warrior spirit
and fills her with the courage to face each day
to know and recognize
that the pounding,  fleshy organ in her chest
brings life not from its incessant beating
but from its unending capacity
to hold us all within its crimson chamber
