Thread of Spirit

Photo Dreamcatcher in ethnic style, hand-made from eco materials - willow branches, flax thread, feathers, skeletonized leaves and wooden beads

We’re offered wealth and riches daily
And yet we turn away in wanting and despair
We don’t see it right in from of us
Because it doesn’t look spendable

For it isn’t
The wealth we’re offered is our open hearts
Receiving all of the love and joy
Available in this life

The riches we’re offered are the connections we make
With those we know and those we’ve yet to meet
Connected by the thread of spirit
Across a thousand lifetimes

Open to the love and joy always around and within us
Open to the connections
Make this life complete

Lakshmi’s Hope


Lakshmi’s outstretched arms
promise wealth, love, liberation,
and the life that brings great meaning

This hope, engendered from the core of
ancient connection, gives rise to
swirling rooftop fantasies
that four arms provide a proper parachute,
a prescription against aspiration landing –
on the concrete below
