Cheery, Unsung Rebels

image

They don’t care about your ideas on order
“Uniformity” is simply not in their vocabulary
You can allow yourself to become grumpier by the moment by the sight of them
But your sour state will not dull their radiance by a single shade
Their unbounded delight in who they are and in what they have to offer
Is enough to explode into the tiniest crack
So while you are deciding whether or not to recycle that cola can
They are feeding the bees and the mammals
They would even nourish and detoxify you if you would allow it
And after they have expressed all of their joy
They magnanimously bless you
With their power of wishes

Accepting All of Him

image

I encompass him
in the feminine softness of my embrace
welcoming and safe
allowing him to be focused
intentional
to determine his own rhythms
I match his dance
moving with him
as he plots the course for where he is taking us both
with the totality of who he is
intensifying
communicating
and releasing into me
where there is room for each of us

Today’s Wisdom

image

Embrace your own story
Be the lead character in the utterly dynamic fairytale
you are creating together with the King

Trust yourself
Begin at this point, even if you make mistakes

Don’t apologize for having to cauterize your own wounds
It’s not worth bleeding out
and there is no obligation to justify this
to anyone who opposes it

Dragons are not butterflies
They will not transform
and seeking love, understanding, and truth from them
will only leave you scorched

Honour all the people you once were
living inside of you still
Believe them, enough to stand your ground
They are credible witnesses

When your heart, intellect, and instincts are at odds
with your instincts blocking the paths that the others propose
that means something
Defer to your instincts

Read the language of your body
Protect it
Your body doesn’t lie
Abide by its wisdom

Necessary Heroine

no princess ever wants to slay her own dragons
but sometimes a princess needs to rise up
rescue herself
and get on with her own adventure

suck it, dragons!

The Purpose of Cocoons

image

He doesn’t want legions of mindless robots
operating in binary code (to do His Will or not)
grey and flat
without vigor

So He doesn’t always make His hopes clear

We have to struggle
pierce the resistance to glimpse the Light
and then doubt if the experiences were actually real

We have to be crushed
yet keep pushing forward

With decades of prolonged agony
it can all seem quite cruel
twisted
pointless

But in the darkness
where we feel so much in our sightless states
our colours are becoming brighter
our rough edges are being smoothed and sharpened
our struggles with God’s dreams are co-creating
something never before imagined
something unrepeatable

Eventually
we will emerge in our true forms
as butterflies
but not like any creatures we have seen on Earth
for we will be butterflies
decorated with diamonds

And when we fly skyward
toward our long-awaited homeland
we will reflect the Light
with our facets uniquely constructed
to amplify our colours
and from this point on
when we give and receive love
it will be without barriers or limitations

Expansive

Evading Accountability

image

The past collides with the present
But they have re-written their history
Cloaked themselves with more benign identities
So it is nullified
Nullified
And yet the deadly effects remain the same

Wildflowers

the rules that apply to them
simply cannot apply to you

seek out what is life-giving
even in those places that others overlook

and anything that bleeds you out
is not worthy of your bloom

find your sunshine and your healing rain
don’t be afraid to call poison what it truly is

embrace the wildflowers in you
a gorgeous meadow unlike any other

embrace the wildflowers in you
they are strewn along unexpected paths

embrace the wildflowers in you
and Jesus will dance with you among the colours
