peal back, crumble, expose...




peal back
crumble
expose
taking me to that place
where not everyone is willing to go

listen
breathe
step...within

there I find
the deadliest of sin

it's not what I thought
not what I was told
it is sacred Truth 
that was lost
in the dark times of old...

The layer 
beyond the layer
and deeper still
vapor
breath
light as a feather
touching it
you can barely feel...
but you know it is there
like a brick
a cinder block
making itself known
gentle
quiet 
Truth

Truth
the word so empty
to the freedom that it is
Truth
relative
yet
universal
 Truth
I stood tall
feet planted
roots strong
I said
"I am ready"
and the gates of heaven opened
pouring down all that I needed
to be whole
giving me a place to stand
giving me a cause to stand for
and fight
Courage sister
courage
for the things unseen
for that which matters little
to a materialistic world
Courage sister
courage 
 stay your course
while the rocks crumble around you
the earth thunders and shakes
and as darkness creeps over the land
know this
the sun WILL rise
the sun in all its glory
with the tapestry of colour
it brings
splashing across the sky
beautiful chorus of love and light
exposing
exposing all Truth
Courage sister
courage
this is the beyond
this is the enlightenment
this is the awakening
step into the wonder of it all
and look around
to see
others
like you
others
like me
~Catherine Beerda-Basso




Oh my ghost came by
Said who do you love the most
Who you wanna call before you die

Oh my ghost came by here
Said who do you love the most
Who you gonna sing to 'fore you're gone

Oh hey heaven is the place we know
Heaven is the arms that hold us
Long before we go
Oh hey, heaven is the place we know
Heaven is the arms that hold us
Long before we go

Oh my ghost came by here
Said who do you love the most
Who you gonna sing to 'fore you go

Oh hey heaven is the place we know
Heaven is the arms that hold us
Long before we go
Oh hey, heaven is the place we know
Heaven is the arms that hold us
Long before we go

Oh if you're there
When the world comes to gather me in
Oh if you're there
I will be blessed
Oh if you're there
When the world comes to gather me in
Oh if you're there
I will be blessed
Oh if you're there
When the world comes to gather me in
I hear you're there
I will be blessed
I will be blessed

Oh if you're there
When the world comes to gather me in
Oh if you're there
I will be blessed
I will be blessed
~ Ben Howard

have a wonderful weekend
lovelies

  5. I loved the last few paragraphs ( and needed them) and loved hearing your voice. It is so hard to maintian the spiritual importance of our dwelling in the materialistic world. I am finding that in school while I am frustrated with essays and exams and the pressure and it seems so ridiculous but I must finish...and then I am not going back but I feel like a failure because the world says that worth is from a degree...and I could do it and get fairly good grades but does that mean it SHOULD be done and at what cost?
    Anyway, so tired. So feeling worthless. In all I do. I need courage and I need unity with women who see the same awareness in spirit...I need to actually spend time with those people outside of the web too and yet where are they? Where am I for them? Sigh.
    Beautiful post.
