How To Fly…

deconstruct the

current box in which you

livebreathe…and have your being…

release the stories you tell

about: yourselfyour lifeyour past

stories that confine…restrict

prevent you from taking flight

like the free spirit you came this way

to be

 

tear down the box you have built around yourself

that allows you to maintain the

illusion of safety within the confines of a

crazed and fear-filled mind

teeming with false beliefs and

wild imaginings…

release the tales of past events

you tell to all who will listen…

cease the righteous picking and re-picking of scabs from

wounds half-healed

ignore the box in which your neighbor is confined…

and the larger one within which

the world is encased

gaze not upon

the boxes of the Others

who so enrageinfuriate…irritate

as they infringe upon and restrict

the expansion of your own beloved box…

disturbing the bliss of infatuation with your

own story

still your mind

quiet your tongue

eliminate: I…my…me…mine

from your vocabulary…

thus you shall begin the dismantling of

the box that confines and restricts your being

preventing you from taking flight

like the free spirit you came this way

to be

SURRENDER…Part Two…

   SURRENDER…

complete

absolute

   total…

the only intelligent thing to do

when caught

broken

weeping

and

powerless

between a rock and a hard place

A Second Day of Freedom!

I give myself permission

to go with my own inner flow

to neither judge myself

nor live by the

judgments of others

I remind myself:

perception

is

reality…

for each of us

experiences the world

as s/he sees it

giving meaning to

incoming data

according to individual

fears

hopes

beliefs

experiences

prejudices

and

whatever mom and dad and church and state

taught as

unassailable 

TRUTH

And so I declare this a

SECOND DAY OF FREEDOM

to be whoever I may be

from moment to moment to moment…

Come out as a Daughter of Gaia!

Seasons Of My Life…

 Summer…

As I move as carefully and gracefully as I can

Through the seasons of my life

I am finding that summer is for indulging my passions

It’s the season for setting free

Inclinations and inhibitions

Hidden below the icy snows of winter

Summer…

My season for taking chances

For daring to follow the bold and bodacious beat

Of my carefree heart

Summer

My season of freedom from the wears and tears of seasons past

My season of breathing in…and letting go

The season in which I dare

To throw caution to the wind

And fly off to the Heavens

In pursuit of my wild and wanton soul

On its return to

Paradise

Summer…

My season for fun!
