I surrender, Oh I can no longer put up the walls before truth
Of love, of the ultimate connection
Of passionate embodiment, of laying alone,
Of being touched by that which cannot be explained
Of that which flows through my body,
Of that which I denied for lifetimes
Of that which no longer harbours denial.
No, take me beyond-
So far beyond that I am deeply, oh so deeply embedded within myself.
So that there is no separation
Oh, use these hands to do your will,
Use my eyes to dwell upon what I must,
Use my heart as a doorway to you
Use my body for deep connection
Take me beyond the smallness
I may wish to keep or my own egotistical reasons
Take me beyond, far beyond.
Let my soul touch and be touched by you
Let me serve you within me and without me.
Let there be a sacred connection, a bond, a knowing
That can never be spoken, such is the truth.
Let me serve the unknown, rich and potent.
I am yours…..

The river has her banks filled to the brim It skirts the rocks and land formations She moves and turns…. Rises and flows… As the banks attempt to contain her, Holding firm as she caresses the sides, Writhing, rising, gently massaging Until the banks, firm and contained Begin to crack and falter… The foundations crumble As the river claims her expanded form Dancing, moving in her new found freedom She tiptoes beyond her known contained river And flows through the landscape… Making love, being in sacred union With the rocks and the deep caverns…. Life spills from her luscious flow As the landscape surrenders to meet her… Birthing lakes, creeks and ponds Creating new life from this loving adventure.
You present yourself with gorgeous, deep roots-
Plump, pulsing with life and maze-like
Still within the package, clear and holding
You sit contained- unaware, naive…
I am entrusted to cut the end-
Pull you through and into this world
It’s as if you take your first breath….
Your roots entwine upon themselves
I gently, so gently massage them,
Patiently and lovingly sing you a song….
Until that moment of release and surrender-
And you are freed from your bonds.
Placed into the fertile soil.
Alone but lovingly adored.
There to grow as you wish,
As deep and as high as you want to go…
You ever get that feeling that there is more to life than what is perceived? It’s brilliant to get reminders that there is so much more than just you being in isolation, being here alone on this crazy island in space we call earth. There is so much more beyond what our little brains comprehend. It’s very much experiencing the sacred in the mundane. Synchronicities beyond what you could ever imagine. A simple sentence one person can utter could mean the world to a person who listens to it. Without knowing it, the person speaking could be the divine messenger which reaches beyond… just beyond and brings it through into the physical. Or there could be a mention of a book in something that you’re listening to, or someone tells you about it. You can say, “Nah, I don’t have time to read a book”, or you could act on this and buy it, or borrow it, and trust that there is a message for you. Trust in the divine timing of things. I buy my books in audio format a lot of the time so that when I walk I can listen to it. The last time I did this, the book rocked my world and shook the very foundations that my life is built upon. Amazing!
Know that there are messages all the time being sent to us to help us out of grace. Be open to the signs and trust them. Like pieces of evidence needing to be collected, these sources of information are needed to put you or keep you on the path that best serves your soul.
