to clear out
to clear out
the weather is finally warming…
soon it will be time to
return to the
drumming back to freedom
under the heat of the city sun…
dancing to the call of the
in the wild abandon of
we are back in the
released from our
that has not abated since first they
across the waters
this new version of
in the noisy
crowded summer heat
of a Harlem park
we beat our drums
and dance our way

That which is temporal
Take a deep breath
Un-clench your belly and say
Letting Go Energy…
Try it…buy it…share it!
Dust off your drum
Return the Goddess to your altar…
Let our dream of peace, love, health, unity, wholeness..
echo in the beat of the drum
Let our drums reverberate throughout the Land
awakening all of the Mother’s children
from their deep slumber
Let our drums drown out the war cries…
soothing the fears of a wounded and frightened humanity
Let the cry of the drum be heard
in far-flung corners of the multiverse…
Dust off your drum my sister!
Let us Join with our brother-drummers
Let us heal together…
Instead of drumming this Saturday, I spent quiet time at my window altar–with the river.
Rising above the chatter of my “monkey brain,” I sat in the peaceful silence of my rain-washed world–listening within:
This drumming, my dear–just like the words that you write–comes through you. You, the ego-personality, are not the owner of your creative productions. The words, and sounds come through you from a Source that also determines the why, what, when, where and how of it all.
Do not attempt to order your gifts; trying to determine whence they come and go.
Life is not yours to order. It is yours to remain open, receptive and in service to That Which lies behind, beneath, above and at each side of all form.
You are learning to understand–and more importantly–to accept and live a reality which is the only authentic Reality there is.
It is a process of opening the heart in trust and releasing the pain you did not know was there.
It is truly living from the inside out: letting your 3-D world unfold in, as and through you; bypassing the ego.
It is not the human way of being.
It is a process of “un-conditioning” the mind.
Have patience with yourself.
I am with you.
We are with you.
Drum Slut rising
stretching awake after a long winter’s sleep…
Drum Slut rising…
Arms stretched to the sky
in homage to the Sun‘s
greening of the land…
