Release

I don’t believe I can ever be whole And give myself, fully… Till I’ve cried the tears Of ancient pain, Flooding, cleansing Gushing like a river To the Sea And with that water Merging, morphing Releasing into Purity’s truth   Dear one, give yourself: permission to be real permission to feel, and permission to heal…

Slow it Down

Today I’m nursing my first motorbike injury. Despite all my rides and hitchhiking habit, I’ve never had so much as a scratch before: and I’ve had some wild rides, including on a bumpy dirt road with two large backpacks and a ukulele, plus my driver and his bag. It’s nothing major; just a burn fromContinue reading “Slow it Down”

Wholeness

I wake, and I remember you; divine essence from a wistful dream’s calling And so I rise, shine in my truth from burnt shadow to flaming grace; I’ve learnt to sate that inner longing for another’s sweet, loving blessing; I’ve united with that love in my soul, with the collective heartbeat in mine * *Continue reading “Wholeness”

Storm of the Ego

I watch you play In the shadows of my night When my body is weak From my heart’s fading beat You strengthen, and you fight With your desperate, angry claws Vying for attention To sate that hunger deep   But I see right through your pain I see the child there Crying out for loveContinue reading “Storm of the Ego”

Release

As the year fades, I feel it sharp Steady tug Upon my opening heart Thickness of my shadows Past and parallel Have been tightening Fast, and fierce With an angry pull But I know I’m wiser, stronger still Than the darkest void Than the blackest star That’s melted from It’s dying grace; And so IContinue reading “Release”

Rebirth

I woke this morning, on Christmas Eve, feeling like I was on the cusp of my own rebirth. I have only just started to appreciate the extent to which the last month has drained me, physically and energetically. But it has been an important month of lessons, learning, and growth. When faced with challenges, itContinue reading “Rebirth”

Jungle living: riding the winds of change

I settle down to write this on a cool, drizzly morning over on Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast. It’s been months since I last posted; I’ve returned from Europe, and the time has passed in a blurry whirlwind, in which I feel I’ve lived 10 lifetimes.  Last week I finalised my first non-legal article for a properContinue reading “Jungle living: riding the winds of change”

Shifting seasons

The air is breathing, short and sharp with the freshness of its chill. The days are starting to feel the premature cut to their lazy long glory of summertime. And I’m feeling the bite of the cold, like the affections of a lover whose touch is no longer desired, whose presence is a distraction fromContinue reading “Shifting seasons”
