Radiating From The Centre

December 26, 2012


No escape from the cloistered room of my retreat
Useless words encumber crystal clarity
Extremes of excess
Weave a tangle of mental constructs
Barriers to the shimmering colors of my soul
Internal flowering is a gentle process
Nurtured in soft caresses
Of Beauty…
In Silence…

Shaken by the power of transformation
All securites
All certainties
Insurmountable obstacles drift away
Like remnants of faded blossoms past
Renewal…
An exquisite delicate gift to protect
To shield with love

A wish for harmony
To seek balance
No place to hold on to
In this place of change
All that is familiar is left behind
No need to use force
Doing nothing
Everything unfolds in time

Revitalized
Freed from the old
This moment of incubation
Precious…
Which way does it go?
Allow stillness to guide its direction
The framework of rebirth

Disintegrated relationships
Inappropriate bonds
Imprison the soul
Say goodbye to the old
Difficult as it may be
Confinements that limit
Liberation follows
Ready to let go…
Birthing a new life
Radiating from the Centre

Beautiful in so many ways… I have been pondering silence…. and vows of silence…. a time to watch potential triggers…stagnated thoughts arising and falling away. And then through stillness, a fresh way of expressing arises…. so in a sense… a vow of silence doesn’t then mean one doesn’t speak… one just doesn’t speak lies…. or habitual thoughts … or polarized ideas…. or judgments… instead, a vow of silence is then the gate one opens to speak the truth… to say what one feels brand new…. to read the moment… to be a medium of spirit… to perform psychometry with the energy that touches us and which is transformed by the vessel or the energetic body.

Hello Bern,

I agree:
..a vow of silence doesn’t then mean one doesn’t speak… one just doesn’t speak lies…. or habitual thoughts … or polarized ideas…. or judgments… instead, a vow of silence is then the gate one opens to speak the truth…

I once was at a spiritual retreat, and observing silence. It was remarkable how noisy my thoughts were. Silence inside is definitely more meaningful than external silence.

I wrote this with a friend in mind who is in-between relationships. This work is always relevant whether we are dealing with personal relationships, or the relationship with self, as you mentioned… silence is then the gate one opens to speak the truth… to say what one feels brand new…. to read the moment…

As always, I appreciate the wisdom you share. I wish you and Stacey a peaceful 2013, may your heart’s wishes be fulfilled!
