Raising The Bar

The journey of learning how to navigate life here on earth as a sober, conscious and awakened human being has been challenging at times.

Now that I’ve been finally facing the things in my past that have created this character I’ve needed to create to survive on this planet and have driven my thoughts and actions my whole life, I have begun to be free of it little by little.

I wasn’t ready until my soul was ready.

With faith and trust in my creator, I am able to find clarity, make decisions and then act on them with courage.

I can decide today what it is that I want my experience here on earth to look like, and when it’s really close but not quite there, I don’t have to settle out of fear that if I don’t, I’ll never have it.

That’s been my problem my whole life. I’ve settled for almost enough respect, almost enough happiness, almost enough love, almost enough living.

Then slowly but surely the bar got lower and lower and lower until I would accept anything at all.

Finally my life and beliefs got so small that there was no room for hope.

So now I’m in the process of expanding my beliefs about what life can be, setting the bar higher and placing more and more trust in my creator.

My experience so far has amazingly been that life absolutely rises to meet me where I am.

That’s a good reason today for hope.

Everything

You are the safe arms I fall into,
a warm embrace,
a passionate kiss,
a shoulder to lean on,
a knowing look,
a bright smile,
a compassionate soul,
an anchor to ground me,
a reminder of what’s real,
a consistent support,
a breath of fresh air,
a soft place for my tears to fall.

You are my hero,
my cheerleader,
my warrior,
my rock,
my love,
the truth in my heart,
words full of wisdom
and everything I could ever want.

You and I

Hands open wide
Ten finger tips touching mine
Tingling electricity traveling
Throughout my human frame

Arms slide behind my back
Slowly pulling me near
No space left between us
Molding to fit each other

A wordless knowing stare
Where ticking time stops
Silence stills the clamor
Of all the world around us

Planet earth has stopped spinning
Gravity lets go of its hold
Floating absolutely grounded
And all that matters is now

All that matters is you and I

Togetherness

Wrapped in strong arms

Holding me tightly

Against your skin I melt

Into the center of your soul

Head tucked under your chin

A gentle touch across my back

Looking up to meet eyes of golden brown

As you look back into mine

My breath is taken from me

Warmth radiates within

In awe of true connection

The essence of beauty

Existing in moments like these

Perfection living in this togetherness

Two souls merge into one

Match Made In Heaven

I’m so thankful you have come into my life

You’ve allowed my love in

And showed me how to love more

Teaching me so much about life

And letting me teach you about freedom

Every day with you is magic

All that I’ve ever wanted I’ve been granted

Your words full of wisdom

The way you live is what I strive to be

We come together in perfect balance

A match made in heaven
