healing wounds

Posted in Moods on September 9, 2008 by moragglimmerwitch

I’m in an odd mood, not quite easy to categorize. It is something akin to a combination of calm and chaos, both obvious, but neither dominant. It makes me think that the two aren’t really opposites. I rather like it. Such “paradox” helps heal wounds like…Self-acceptance. I used to think that standing strong in my adopted convictions was the only way to know purpose and be accepted by others. Now, I’m working on not taking myself too seriously. I understand that the acceptance I give so freely to others has to be given to myself as well.

Shedding society’s formula. I have always looked for the middle road, that fragile place that exists between extremes. I don’t expect to be balanced at all times, but I appreciate the experience of balance. I am not worried about knowing “the” truth. I figure that if I can glimpse my own truth in each moment and accept that it will change, I will be happier to participate in this life I’m creating.

Ah, yes. Those wounds are healing.

Thunderstorm

Posted in Goddess, Secret, Wonder on September 7, 2008 by moragglimmerwitch

There is a thunderstorm outside my window. I am in awe of it. Here I sit, so small… so little. And beyond this pane of glass crashes a world of wonder and mighty power, tearing the heavens apart and rebuilding them with charcoal clouds. The rain pours down, a sacred thing, slucing through the branches of quivering trees, driving its way deep down to the heart of the earth as it rolls off blades of grass and car windows in a seemingly random dance. (The greatest secret – nothing is truly random.)

I feel awake… alive. The cup of tea in my hand is warm, as warm as the metal of my worn necklace… as warm as the coming air. Everything is a feast for my senses as I take in the storm and thank Goddess for this.

Fog

Outside the fog is thick. It envelops me, secures me in this moment, and my soul lightens.
I am free!
