Seeds

Maybe
I have always known
the seeds of love
now fully grown..

would remind me
of all that's lost
and tossed
aside..

in the living
of life..

and giving
away
of our truth.

Lightly

“It’s dark because you are trying too hard.
Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly.
Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply.
Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them."

- Aldous Huxley
Painting by Mairi

I love these words by Aldous Huxley. Beautiful, profound truths are often easy to resonate with, but not so easy to apply. Feeling lightly when you’re feeling deeply can be very challenging. I especially find this with anger, which for me is the most toxic of emotions…it always leaves me feeling as though I’ve violated my soul, and polluted the Universe.

There is much to feel angry about these days in this troubled and sometimes cruel World. I often have to take myself to a place of surrender…to accept my smallness within the vastness…to go inwards and reconnect with love…the most powerful power I have..Mairi💙
