Returning to Our Roots

Doing what brings us joy

Standing our ground —sans puffing chest — cock fighting — correcting the misguided — eye-for-an-eye leaving us both blind — we are flattening the playing field.

Playing all hands — laying cards out for all to see — out of options — short-circuitry greater than ease. Fold — beginning a new game — rules written upon my heart.

Firmly — in the essence of self —an invitation to better knowing — returning to peace and love. Breathing in — deeply rooted — grounded earthly movements — returning to mother’s call.

Present field — existing thoughts passing by — firmament of centered truth — situational entanglements are falling away. Breathing out — cosmic calling — infinite possibilities await.

Just for today — growing roots deep within the earth. Roots embedded with peace and love, extending out for all beings to receive.

Just for today — returning to those roots — bringing us the most joy. We have done all we can — for those lost in self-defeating thoughts — moving on.

Thank you Marilyn Glover, and the whole Third-Eye-Gypsy family, for holding this sacred space.

Much gratitude for those who take time to read, ponder, and allow the inner workings of self to come forward. Grateful for the feedback, love shared, and, more importantly, the Dance with Inspiration. Deep Peace.
