Are you still travelling?

One's destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.

- Henry Miller

You i need

I was born as all the world here was born

As tones, words and stories of the primeval song
I need no bow, I need no sword
My kingship’s known to gods
Let their song go on

I need you to be the guide
The mirror to the sky and sea
Portray all above and below
The gate of life and death

The sea of my loneliness
It needs to have a sky
To go with my story
I also need to have your words

Like a king has his moon
A queen has her sun
To make the song go on

Make the song go on
The creator of gods
Make the song go on and on
On and on

Be my guide of life and death

You can close your eyes

"To the things you do not want to see.
But you cannot close your heart to the things you do not want to feel."

Don't go back to sleep

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the doorsill
where the two worlds touch.

The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep.

- Rumi

And those who were seeing dancing

Were thought to be insane by those who were not able to hear the music.

There is nothing noble in being superior

To your fellow man.
True nobility is being superior to your former self.

- Ernest Hemingway

Dance with me, little stranger

Each partner who comes to dance with us teaches us something and brings us the gift of connection in new ways. Through each, we touch what is possible for us to create with another.

In this sense, the soul mate is not just one person, but a work in progress, a tapestry being woven out of light and shadow, hope and fear. Every lover we have prepares us to meet the Beloved.

Each one brings a lesson and a gift. And each defers to another who brings a deeper gift and a more compelling lesson. As we learn to honor ourselves, we attract partners who challenge us to become more conscious about the choices that we make.

Gradually, we open our hearts to the potential of creating intimacy on all levels. This full-chakra embrace opens to us when we have substantially completed our inner work. And then it is no longer a temporal affair.

It is Spirit come to flesh.

It is the indwelling Presence of Love, blessing us and lifting us up. It is both a gift and a responsibility, both a promise made and a promise fulfilled.

~ Paul Ferrini
