Poem: Sarcophagus of Light

One day
in an ancient world,
but in this world,
we traveled to this time
inside a sarcophagus
of light,
you and me,
in loving
embrace of
togetherness

are we there
watching this day,
this moment,
or are we here,
or are we
here and
there

to be together
again we vertically
adjusted the
time line of now,
there
and here,
reminding us
that love at first sight
was not love at
first sight,
and the sarcophagus
was not for the dead,
but for the living
to travel between
worlds and the gate;
or was it
in the future past
this loving embrace
became up-to-date.

Monthly Symbol: Shooting Star for December

Shooting star is my pick to be the symbol of December here at Soul Fields.  Wishes and dreams are being fulfilled. Connecting with our inner child we are able to see the miracles and magic everywhere and bring a sense of awe and wonder into our lives.

I chose an image of a male star gazer, because the female is so much the emphasis today when it comes to spirituality from the newer perspective. (Not that it is disconnected from the male point of view, quite the contrary.)

The Power of Vulnerability

The Power of Vulnerability

The wound is the place where the Light enters you. ~ Rumi

Rumi’s quote reminds me that vulnerability is often a gateway for intimacy, both with myself and others. I was talking to a friend at Unity recently and she mentioned how much see enjoyed my post on Bitter Medicine. She appreciated my willingness to be open and vulnerable. I believe that as we more fully embrace our dark, ordinary and even wounded aspects, we also find more of the true beauty, light and depth that we yearn for.

I encourage you to be vulnerable with your self, your family, friends and co-workers. You might be surprised by what hidden gems you uncover.

Here is more photography from Andrew Kilgore, whom I’ve mentioned before. Andrew’s photography really speaks to my heart, encouraging me to open myself to compassion for others. He has spent his…

Quote: Maintaining Freedom

“Freedom or independence means that our lives are shaped by personal priorities rather than external constraints or social pressures. It means we are able to follow our own deepest values and exercise our judgment even when others disagree or disapprove. To maintain independence, we must recognize our natural human tendency to assimilate–to gradually conform our ideas to those of groups or leaders that we like.”

Poem: Pale Purple

 

I was shown pale purple
surrounding the
the cloud of densities
of the world.
It was of cosmic light,
so calming to the
human mind,
bringing
peace and ease
down to the Earth

Accepting our anger
is seeing what
it truly was,
channeling it
constructively
we transmute it into
creative force
of luminous light,
and active energy
of divine delight

Peace resides
there in the
open heart,
bridging the gap
between the
mind and feel,
and we can see
the real

It becomes easy to have
love and calm,
and a mind that
does no harm
to oneself
nor to the other.
The Spirit of Peace and Ease
comes to the fore,
subtly permeates the core.

Poem: All These Forms

 

All these forms — appearance-emptiness
Like a rainbow with its shining glow
In the reaches of appearance-emptiness
Just let go and go where no mind goes

Every sound is sound and emptiness
Like the sound of an echo’s roll
In the reaches of sound and emptiness
Just let go and go where no mind goes

Every feeling is bliss and emptiness
Way beyond what words can show
In the reaches of bliss and emptiness
Just let go and go where no mind goes

All awareness — awareness-emptiness
Way beyond what thought can know
In the reaches of awarenessemptiness
Let awareness go — oh, where no mind goes

– Khenpo T G Rinpoche
