I’ve been feeling a little blue these days. I’m not sure I shared this with you, but I made the conscious choice to be single in 2013. I wanted this to be the year to focus on Me. Though I’m glad I made that choice, there are days I miss that partnership, that connection and friendship. And there is a part of me that feels I should & wants to be at peace with being alone. A new friend from the blogosphere, Noel from Truth Yoga, wrote to me today and it eloquently expressed my sentiment…
“…..someone with whom I can connect with and grow and evolve with spiritually, to engage the inner and outer life with, in all its light and even its darkness….to simply share the Journey of Awakening with…..I still know my Soul yearns for this, though there is also a part of me, the Yogi in me, that also would like to transcend this part of life and go beyond it…..”
Though I know I’m not alone in that sentiment, it was nice to hear that I was not alone. And the Universe reminds me that I am Loved. Be still my heart.
Then, I find out that my blog has been highlighted on Life Once Dreamt‘s blog! My first reaction… A major geeky blogger moment for sure! Then, as I read her words, I was humbled and grateful to have been able to inspire and connect with someone. And the Universe reminds me that I am Loved. Be still my heart.
I’ve also been on a writing slump. Poet’s block? I’ve lost my Muse and haven’t been inspired for months. When Martyn of Cabo de Gata Photography steps in and offers a poem he just wrote to highlight in my blog. And the Universe reminds me that I am Loved. Be still my heart.
A Poem from my Resident Guest Poet…
The Chestnut Tree
This morning I hugged a tree
A feeling of connectivity
A spiritual communion
This union between
Nature and me…
And on my way
I kissed a flower
That I did not take
Rather to enjoy
The beauty of her freedom
This wild margarita…
The chestnut tree imparted his wisdom
And told me that flowers
Have a greater beauty when
We do not own them
But love them unconditionally
And always respect their liberty…
Not only was his poem timely in that I wanted to post some poetry on my blog, but it was also timely in my recent blues. I love how he describes that connection I long for in a communion with nature! And the Universe reminds me that I am Loved. Be still my heart.
Still, my heart yearns for that Love…
