 i'm missing you deeply today.

Monday, April 23, 2012

The lilac bushes are the best ever this year.
They are exploding all round our little town.
You would be pleased.

When I smell them I remember how you loved them
and that lilacs were the most romantic smell in the world to you.

Today as lilacs fill the air all round me
I know I am being surrounded by Your love.

I Feel You.

I Love You.

I Thank You.

The Relief of Impermanence
When our thoughts believe that an entity is permanent, that is a mistake, and that mistake causes us to suffer. Because when we believe an entity that makes us happy is permanent, we suffer when that entity ceases to exist. And when we believe an entity that makes us suffer is permanent, we deny ourselves the relief of knowing that it is impermanent and will therefore not cause us suffering forever, 
or even close to it!

- Khenpo Tsültrim Gyamtso, "The Path of Faith and the Path of Reasoning"


the light we're looking for

“maybe it's not all darkness, she thought. 
maybe it's a chance for us to be who we really are. 
and maybe that's the light that shines in the darkness. 
maybe we're the light we're looking for.”

some days my eyes 
are like rain clouds.
water pouring down to cleanse
and nourish the ground below.
each drop bringing the 
promise of new growth
for the new season.

He breathes into my ear until my soul takes on His fragrance.
He is the soul of my soul.

Maybe It's Time

maybe it's time to take care of yourself.
maybe it's time to scream out loud
that you don't have the answers
and you just plain can't figure out what it's all about... 
but you're in this for the full ride.
maybe it's time.
maybe it's time to stop doin' the half ride.
maybe it's time to step into it all.
to weep your guts out.
to hurt all the way to your core.
to allow the hurt to be there.
maybe it's time to embrace the love
and believe in it even tho it's not always perfect...
but it's always right.
maybe it's time to shout out to your depths
that you do matter
and you will do all in your power to live healthy.
maybe it's time to stop just getting through,
just surviving.
maybe it's time to grab the gift you've been given.
and celebrate every piece of it –
including the pain that brought you here.
maybe it's time.
forget the maybe...
and know it..
it is time.

in his memory

“my mind hears your voice in a 
 different places.
 my heart echoes your laugh and 
 makes me smile. 
 my blood runs thru my veins
 carrying you
 inside its very cells. 
 and i know that you are part of me.
 I ache with missing you.
 yet i live with you inside of me.
 and i hold you with every fiber 
of my being. 
forever and always.”
