The Question

By |March 2nd, 2015|

open doorway

There is a question that will take you
To the door of The Friend.

And when it opens, you will see
How answers keep coming…

Like a thousand blessings
Drenched in light.

But do not settle
For a single one of those.

If you keep your eyes open
You will see, there is still more…

It is the question, not the answer,
That holds open the door.

A Letter to My Heart

By |December 8th, 2014|

My precious heart.

Your nature is love – pure, devotional, unlimited, unbounded and free.

Yet I have tried to limit you. Please forgive me.

I have tried to limit you because I thought that it was not safe to express your fullness, depth and wildness in the world.

I have tried to limit you because I thought that if others saw how deeply you love, how unconditionally you surrender, how completely without reason you abandon yourself to the guidance of the Great Mystery…. Well, I was afraid that they would fear you. They might fear your unstoppable power and unknowable depths. And in their fear they would judge you. Judge me. I was afraid I would be ostracized… and deemed not worthy of my place as mother, lover, friend, teacher….

In my fear I forgot that the source of Love and Fear is the One source. And it holds me in the deepest safety and sees beyond all judgment.

Oh, my precious heart. I was afraid that if I let the fullness of your light, love and magnificent intelligence shine in the world, that you would surely guide me to unspeakable joy and great worldly success. And I was afraid that this success would make others feel insecure and would cause them deep suffering.

In my fear I forgot that in your light is inspiration, and in your love is compassion – a bridge of safety for those who feel insecure.

Please forgive me, my heart, for all the burdens I have unconsciously placed around your neck.

I release them all.

You are free to be and express your unlimited nature.

Your love and your light is needed in the world now.

I need it.

I am blessed by it.

Thank you.

I love you.

At the centre of us all

Listen to the audio above, or download At the centre of us all on mp3.

We may only be here
a little while.

You, or I, could be gone tomorrow.
And even 80 years may pass in a flash.

Lets not waste This Moment

to be more,
or less,
or other
than Who We Are…

Most deeply.

For I suspect that at the centre of us all
is Love.

Far From Knowing…

By |February 24th, 2014|



Click to hear or download this poem as an mp3.


Far from knowing who I am

I discover myself daily.


All over this body I find

old rocks and ancient wells.


Scars and burns mark

twists and turns


along the way

to where dark chasms and deep oceans



and to the secret treasure chests

I left for myself

all hidden away

so I would find them one day


and remember This…

Great Jewel of my Being.
