My heart is so heavy tonight. I'm feeling a range of emotions, some joy, sorrow, tenderness, hope, vulnerability, openness, loving, gratitude and compassion. This weekend didn't turn out as was planned- the retreat which I was planning to attend has been postponed. These retreats have played such a transformational part in my healing journey. Each time I come back enriched with so many gifts. I am in awe of the other women who volunteer their time in service of others. Even though this weekend retreat was cut short, these last 24 hours have been a sacred gift from the universe. I hope that I continue to have an opportunity serve organizations that contribute to the collective healing of others.
My wish tonight is for everyone to take a deep breath, to pause and express gratitude for all the light beings in your life. The ones that hold space for you and offer prayers of comfort. The ones who have your back. Love & Light
When you find yourself with the Beloved, embracing for one breath,
In that moment you will find your true destiny.
Alas, don’t spoil this precious moment
Moments like this are very, very rare.
From Thief of Sleep
by Shahram Shiva
Sharing a poem by Rumi
A moment of happiness,
you and I sitting on the verandah,
apparently two, but one in soul, you and I.
We feel the flowing water of life here,
you and I, with the garden’s beauty
and the birds singing.
The stars will be watching us,
and we will show them
what it is to be a thin crescent moon.
You and I unselfed, will be together,
indifferent to idle speculation, you and I.
The parrots of heaven will be cracking sugar
as we laugh together, you and I.
In one form upon this earth,
and in another form in a timeless sweet land.
Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi
Sharing a poem from Rumi tonight. I’m missing someone so much tonight.
Hope to reunite with them in my dreams. 🙂
Never lose hope
when the Beloved
sends you away.
If you’re abandoned
if you’re left hopeless
tomorrow for sure
you’ll be called again.
If the door is shut
right in your face
keep waiting with patience
don’t leave right away.
Seeing your patience
your love will soon
summon you with grace
raise you like a champion.
