In the Stillness that Is...


In the Stillness that Is
I can breathe


In the Stillness that Is
I can find truth
the Sacred Truth
of rock and bone
tear and blood
earth and sky
root and paw
a place in which 
I bear witness


In the Stillness that Is
I am alive
I am valid
I am accounted for
I am

The Stillness that Is
never falters
never fails
never crumbles
It always Is


And it is in that Stillness
where I am reminded of who I am
that no matter what befalls
all is well and as it should be
Here I am reminded
to embrace this journey
yet not to hold on too tight
as it is one piece of something bigger
 a stay over of sorts...
a journey within a Journey


I am reminded to let my blood flow,
and my bones to creak
allow my tears to fall
and feel my feet take root
hands on fire
raised up high
I am willing


For it is in the Stillness that Is
where I find You...
and know
I am not alone




What are you finding 
In the Stillness that Is
my lovelies?

Love and Light

  1. "a journey within a Journey" sigh.... xoxo
    what am I finding in the stillness that Is? My humanity and my Divinity and my openness to my purpose. I couldn't have answered this a month ago.. such IS the journey within a Journey. this was so raw.. I think this might have been my favourite of yours to date.. or maybe it just touched me where I needed touching. Breathtaking, beautiful, Real. Thank you for sharing your talent and your very being. xoxo

  2. Yes I find this...yet I also find boredom when I am too still...which I have been lately. I guess there is always a line or a feeling that we step into...but reading your journey made me feel wonder, awe and happiness for you. Hey, if we come that way this summer in mid August would you be open for a overnight with our family? I am debating whether I am capable of a holiday- who knows..but if? I would love to communion in your place with you:)

  4. Oh boy, that is one of my ALL TIME FAVOURITE songs.
    I love the stillness that you understand and have helped me understand more too. The 'journey within a journey'. Yes.
    Your pictures have also captured a longing in me to walk. Walk somewhere reflective of His creative hands. Still and untouched.

  8. Your words about life being kind of a 'stay over', 'a journey within a journey' really made sense to me, a lovely way of looking at things.

    Thank you for your spiritual expressions, much appreciated!

    Hugs

  11. These images are calling me, drawing me in to walk in the stillness. In the journey of stillness I am finding myself and my connection to the earth, the animals and the Creator.
