Drop Down Deep

Drop Down Deep

By Amba Gale

In our lives, and in these unprecedented times, in particular, it is important for each of us, if not critical, to “drop down deep,” to “stop what you are doing right now, and to stop what you are becoming while you do it,” as poet David Whyte suggests. To, simply, stop.

It is in the stopping that we can notice, observe, include, and be with, all of the emotional and reactions, the opinions, and the judgments, the resisting and persuading, the complaining and the fighting, we are doing in our minds. Once we have stopped, we can, simply, focus in on our breathing. Having let go of all that mind chatter, having separated our awareness from our mind, we can come present to Now. Now is where there is peace. Now is where there is Presence. Now can even be, where we can create wonder and gratitude.

When you drop down deep, you can access your Imagination, that singular and unique voice which is entirely your own. Listen. Hear what it is saying to you. Trust it.

Drop Down Deep

Drop
Down
Deep.

Drop down,
beneath the Silence

where the Voice
of your Soul
— the Creative Imagination — can find you
and guide you
to your own promised land.

Those promises
were made
long ago
before you were born.

Though you forgot them,
they were vows
that were made for you,
in behalf of your Soul
rising
to its rightful land.

To find that voice,
you must listen.
Listen deep,
beneath the Silence.

Drop
Down
Deep.

Debbie’s Story

I am creating a special edition of my blog posting this week, as I have had the privilege of being in a particular conversation that I’d say is vitally important at this time, a time of shifting sands, beneath our feet, a time of importance for intentionally crossing thresholds. This posting points to a potent distinction that allows such a threshold crossing. The painting, above, was created by Debbie Hulbert, a participant in our fall 2020 virtual offering of Crossing Thresholds, a course that was based on my newly published book, designed to facilitate participants in crossing their next threshold.…

Phoenix Ascends

Every five hundred to one thousand years, it is said, the Phoenix, a beautiful, scarlet and gold, giant, mythical bird, rises from the ashes of its own death. There is, the myth says, only one Phoenix on the planet at any one time. It sets itself on fire, inside of a nest of boughs an spices, and is consumed by the flames. Out of its own ashes, it arises, born newly. The regeneration of itself contains the ashes of its predecessor as an aspect of its next being. What a metaphor! This is such a time, for such an Awakening.…
