To engage the work of the shadow


To engage the work of the shadow, to travel the descendent current into the unlit places, is an act of courage and a compassion that is burning and alive.

For when we re-embody to the unwanted we remove the burden from others to metabolize it for us, which they cannot do. We are then able to love them and set them free.

In this way we liberate one another to live as the majesty that we are, no longer having to apologize for our wildness, our sensitivity, and the unique ways we enter into the mystery.

So much more than enough


It is so alive in the forest today, the portals are open through which the unseen can find safe passage.

The moss, the mud, the rotting logs. The browns, blues, and greens ache with essence, companions on a long journey home.

The water and the light as it wraps around the trees, as love comes out of the ground and falls from the sky, yearning to make its way here.

In the realm we're in now, it's all music and poetry, overflowing with that most ancient longing of the heart: come closer, all the way inside, allow me in to fill the vessel.

To witness a new fragrance of love as it emerges into the miracle world of time and space. To be given so much. So much more than enough.

The yoga of burning


At times a lonely heart will appear as the teacher and we will be asked to practice the yoga of raw burning. As we are made into dust, the fire is tended.

While it may be tempting to replace the burning with bliss, the sadhana of disappointment demands we set aside all others and place the broken pieces on the altar in front of us.

Even if we cannot love, accept, or transform what has come, we can always bow. Fall to the ground and bear witness to the embodied vulnerability, for there is no greater temple.
