Ruminate

Once you have created

you have responsibility, but not control.

Anyone who has ever had children knows exactly what I mean.

but you don’t need to have children to understand this

because it holds true for ALL creation

even ideas

even us

Photo note: I’ve been listening this week to the free broadcast of the live event in Anaheim ‘Co-Creation at it’s Best’  that’s part of the Hay House World Summit.  This morning, I looked out the window at work and ‘happened’ to see a boat floating by – pictured above.  The photo is blurry because I was zooming in to try to capture the boat’s name, but as you can see I didn’t quite get it.  The boat’s name is Intention.

Taroetry: Strength

Note: This is part of a new poetry series I am working on, inspired by the Tarot trump cards.   I have started by pulling a card and meditating on it, recording the ideas and images that come to mind.  This one is inspired by the Strength card.  You can find out more about the meaning of this card here

Strength

You slay with subtlety

because there is more power in your heart

than in the strongest sword.

If we can tame our egos

you will share your secrets;

that the fiercest dragons are found within

and

all wars with the self are won and lost in the trenches

Taroetry: The Empress

Note: This is part of a new poetry series I am working on, inspired by the Tarot trump cards.   I have started by pulling a card and meditating on it, recording the ideas and images that come to mind.  This first one is inspired by the Empress card.  You can find out more about the meaning of this card here

Empress

Windblown hair of golden wheat, rippling on hillsides

You ARE an Earth Mother

Bringing forth from yourself

Life

Taking us back to our Roots

Grounding us with your love

Let your rain be long upon us

May our hearts be fertile soil for your wisdom to grow and blossom within

Decision Point

 

While afternoon was passing by

I heard the buzzing of a fly;

trapped on back before my eyes

he flailed to skirt his own demise.

Oh, Fly!

Can I,

having seen you in this state,

remain apart from your fate?

If I could help, and watch you die

Is the cause of death now I?

Though your buzzing did offend

Who am I to bring it’s end?

Perhaps after this lowly life

your next one will be free from strife?

Shall I, if I stay my hand

speed you to a future grand?

Tell me, please, I wish to know

Should I help you stay or go
