waves, etc.

Thursday, May 7, 2009

Turns out, the wave was a big one. My family's in the middle of one of those death-and-cancer storms so familiar to those of us in middle age. Blessedly, it's none of the immediate family. But the wave still feels overwhelming; a sudden metastasis of an undiscovered cancer is still awful. Sudden death in the backyard is still a gutpunch. Horrible, horrible.

So pray, my dears. See to your own back gardens. Cultivate your health and your soul; most especially, cultivate your relationships. Those that you love, and that love you, bring deep joy (even when they're aggravating, because they won't do what you tell them!). Let yourself be awake to where you really are. Cut your losses and move on, if that's what you want to do. Listen to your soul, your deepest self; your own individual truth lives right there, right in the center.

Though I do perceive that we live over and over, this present reality is

I'm so sorry about this one, duffi. I missed it in the chaos of the past couple of weeks. Lots of waves lately, but they will gentle down. Let the softer waves sooth you, and the garden's green growing goodness restore you. xxxxx
