Phoenix Speaks

By Amba Gale

I look
           up
     up
up
to the sky
as Phoenix rose
away
from the clouds,
said, simply,
“I am free.

Follow me, if you will.

Here is a hint for the good life:

Be generous.
Give yourself the gift of forgiveness.

Let go of your righteousness, and resentment and get free.

Once free, declare your own future.

Do not let
        the reasonableness and agreement and dis-ease of the day
        deter you
        from creating a life of joy.

Just
let yourself fly,
fly far
from the ashes of your last life of yesterday.

Carry with you
only
that which protects
like a healing,
and a wholeness: your own song of joy.

Rise,
untethered,
from
your
own
latest
breath,
Rise,
untethered,
from
your
own
latest
death.

Live a life worth living.

You, and only you,
can give
this life to yourself.”

And, with that, the clouds broke apart
The words remained, deep in my heart.

If this cannot be done, we sacrifice our integrity. Take your pick: Victim or Author– the choice is yours. Awake Alive Conscious People do not plan too much, nor get attached to their plans. Instead, they listen, deeply, and then they…

The Future that Brings You Alive

There is a straight line that only you know how to draw that takes you from here to there or, more precisely, from there to here, in a world of possibility. And, if you follow it you will be true to your own North Star. It will not fail you. No matter the turbulent and unprecedented circumstances of your life. For one thing, you will know that you are being guided. For another, you will know the Guidance is true. The Future, If you let it, will magnetize you into it. Do not let your mind or your considerations, whatever…
