The Joy of Serving

Being in the Space of
and holder of the space of
and carver of the space for
is not an easy thing
nor a light thing
nor an un-rigorous thing.
It is not casual, but causal,
not serendipitous, but intentional,
not wobbly, but Fierce.

It demands Total Wholeheartedness, and Courage.

The archer
shoots the arrow with her bow
and hits the target
every time.

There is no prescription.

We must be fluid, and dance with the conversation as it unfolds.

This is a wonder.

What is it
to bring forth such Loving Givingness
time after time after time?

Evolution is a by-product of such service.
New Paths Revealed are a by-product of such service.
Being profoundly blessed is a by-product of such service.

Joy is a by-product of such service.

I am as served as those I have served.

What is it to give my Life
to the life of another?
To be present at the Birth of a new Being?

Is This not a privilege and a Blessing?

When you think of the Target being a healing of the past,
the awakening of another’s Life,
the possibility of Profound, Ongoing Connection,
of a Planet’s Purpose fulfilled,
the Awakening of a critical level of Consciousness,
out ever burgeoning realization of intimacy with all things,
we are willing, well,
to go through any hoops
to suffer any pains,
to have the privilege
of being present to such Beauty
and such Grace
and such Wisdom
that reveals itself
in transformation.

Awakening Sunrise

Your rising red orange crimson yellow ever‑changing light ever‑changing shape moment by moment in the sky in the sea startles me. Looking up through the living room’s glass door to the outside, I am amazed, aroused, engaged, awakened, astonished by your light. You wake me up to the present as if I have been in a dream. Presence comes first. Astonishment rushes in a brief moment after. Wonder follows, then these words of love to you. Bothered, ensnared, engulfed by all my worries, I have been asleep. Your sudden appearance and my willingness to be surprised meet and hold hands.…

Creating Spaciousness

Breathe. Let the light that is all around you enter through your crown chakra. Let it penetrate your Being. Feel The warmth of the fire within you. Know that you are loved. Align all the energies. Let them converge as one in the center of your Being. Breathe. Create space in time. All will come to pass in its own time. Don’t try to rush things. Breathe. Create room in time. Those creative possibilities are beautiful, all in their own time. Give yourself the gift of room in time. Let this knowing in your body and your heart lead the…
