Love

Bring it

Posted on Updated on

bring the distorted sense of certainty

to this twisted entirety

bring the messiness

the confusing chaos

the emotional wretchedness

bring the blinding clarity

catalyzed by pain too great to contain

too inconvenient to sustain

but consistently

too loud to ignore

bring it all

I surrender

with gratitude greater than ever before

I love it all

Connecting. Re-connecting. Exploring.

Exhausted, but oh so HAPPY!

– I took the picture earlier today, it’s from Opal Beach on Santa Rosa Island, Florida, where I’m currently loving life. Tomorrow it’s back to the wonderful city, New Orleans :)

Dance

Posted on Updated on

First time I heard this track, it didn’t really move me. Then I heard it again, or more accurately, then I danced to it. I’m not sure where they came from, or where they’d been resting before, but gigantuous echoing emotions rose to the surface and expressed themselves through my body in a completely new way – and it just blew my mind.  Talk about peak experience! Since then my dancing has transformed, stretched itself, and in the process, stretching me. Wow. Just wow.

Unbreakable

The Unbroken

There is a brokenness heart
out of which comes the unbroken,
a shatteredness
out of which blooms the unshatterable.

There is a sorrow
beyond all grief which leads to joy
and a fragility
out of whose depths emerges strength.

There is a hollow space
too vast for words
through which we pass with each loss,
out of whose darkness
we are sanctioned into being.

There is a cry deeper than all sound
whose serrated edges cut the heart
as we break open to the place inside
which is unbreakable and whole,
while learning to sing.

~Rashani

I read this poem several years ago and I remember the truth of it echoing through me, bringing me much-needed peace. It reminded me that even in pain there’s beauty, and that what matters the most will never be broken. It is one of my favorite poems, although I haven’t thought of it for a long time – but then today when I read the most recent post on The Better Man Project it immediately popped into my mind again. Funny how that works..

May we all remember, or have someone to remind us, that our dark moments serve a valuable purpose and that we hold in our hearts unbreakable love and light ♥
