For Giving Endings

For Giving Endings

By Amba Gale

Teachings from another time are given:

All is well and “shall be well.”

Live in faith, know deep in heart,

that endings soon

(in their own time)

give rise to new beginnings,

and only with completion can a new beginning start.

And I must rise to the tide of my life’s calling

for giving endings where those endings are now due.

“What must I complete?”

“What endings must I cause?”

I’m called to ask.

Here, the heart can grow and gladden

with Completion’s teaching:

All is Well,

    “All shall be well,

          and all manner of thing shall be well.”

The Student Inside

welcomes

all the lessons from the Royale Isle

of Impermanence and Now,

of endings and new starts.

When the wild waves beat

at your shore, and in your heart, when

night lightning strikes

at your feet,

and makes a day shine from the night-darkened

porch, when

thunder drum shakes the wooden floor,

and you stumble, not seeing, as the wind

blows open all the windows, all the doors,

sweeping your house clean,

you may tumble,

you lose your hold on earth.

Know this in your heart, and let it chime the bell:

“All manner of thing shall be well.”

Breathe in deep, and give it all

the space to be a part

Of Ending,

      of Beginning,

             and of Entrance

                     to new Start.

“All manner of thing shall be well,” Julian of Norwich.

Comparison is The Devil’s Game

For years I tried to be someone I was not. Then, a crisis, and then I worked, I prayed, I went in deep into my heart. I met teachers, and met The Teacher in myself. I opened to Mystery, sought and called forth Source, and found that Spirit moves through me, through us all. I wrought a work of Giving and became generous, honed, still, fashioned myself to serve, through time. The more I grew the more I learned to be humble, and to be at peace. “I am still learning,” says the Artist from the Ancient Well of Spirit…

Imagine Yourself

Imagine yourself a leaf,     being carried by the river.         There, you will know Peace. Imagine yourself a feather     being danced by the wind that carries.         There you will know Joy. Imagine yourself a lake,     rained on by the clouds         There, you will know Fullness. Imagine yourself a stream,     being a bed for the salmon.         There you will know Birth and Death. Imagine yourself an ear,     listening to another’s heart.         There, you will meet Compassion. Imagine yourself a heron,     fishing the abundant water.         There, you will be Patience. Imagine yourself as a poet,     facing the blank, white page.         There, you will…
