Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Tipping Point

on March 23, 2015

The vast terrain of what’s gone before me
Wearies exceedingly my memory-stuffed mind.
I’m tired of thinking, expecting new futures.
Give me the simplicity to enjoy today.

My life is changing. I savor new spices.
Attuned to new rhythms I choose different dances.
Fresh questions and puzzles appear to be dealt with.
Strange how promise-filled it is to move on.

    All is great! When I got back from my trip the snow was gone. It was in the 20’s today but lots of sun. I hope all is well with you. ❤

  4. A lovely poem about the freedom of moving on.

  5. A great sense of freedom rises from these word , freedom is good , one can spend far too long chained in the past and there really is no way of changing it , the most intelligent thing to do would be to move on and taste those new spices ; lovely poem about the advantages of moving forward unleashed from the chains of the past , now all I need is the courage to use the key .Keep writing Viv your words give much courage. Kathy.

      I’m glad my words give you courage. I think you would like my new exploration into a book of blessings arising from Celtic spirituality. Your comment gives me encouragement to post about it. Thanks.

      • ah how beautiful , have you ever read dear John O’donohues books they are so beautiful full of celtic wisdom my favourite is Anam Cara , I met him about 2 years before his untimely death a lovely man , I still feel an aching sadness that his life was cut so short . I am so looking forward to your posts on Celtic Spirituality , a gentle soul full of courage is what your writing speaks to me , if you lived nearer I would gift you some of his books I think you would like the way he spoke of our souls and their mystic journeys. Kindest regards Kathy. xxx

    Kathy, I am a-tingle with goose bumps. The book I’m reading is John O’Donohue’s To Bless the Space Between Us. A man on my Costa Rica trip told me about the book when I told him that a friend’s definition of God is “the space between two people”, which is now mine also. He showed me his copy of the book. After reading only one blessing I knew O’Donohue is speaking from the same deep place I’ve stumbled into. I want to read Anam Cara. I plan to write about how my eyes are being opened to the new beginning in my soul’s journey. I think I am a “gentle soul” as you say. I’ve long felt that God deals gently with me in the changes of my life. ❤
