The trust you seek in any situation begins within you.
I talk, and write (profusely it seems), about presence and being present−the unfolding of things in and around us. And yet, volumes could be filled with what I still have to learn about being with in the unfoldment. Lately I have realized the importance of consciousness with each step; a detachment from my need to understand (my own private version of control). Step-by-step, I am holding the joy found in the blessings of experience (one-by-one).
In a reflective time, I have learned what it means to really contemplate and participate in the unfolding flow: “Take a long, loving look at what really is.” I learned this definition of contemplation from my study of the works of Richard Rohr, who also says that, “Contemplation is a way to hear with the spirit and not with the head.”
For me, I suppose it is simply part of my spiritual wiring, but I must learn continually on my journey and share this with you through story and storytelling. For those close, I issue my apology; for both the constant of this and that it is most likely to continue. But you see, this is my love. My desire (fueled by love) is my energy for spiritual service. My intent (guided by love) is confident freedom in spiritual service. My unfolding confidence swirls in the commerce of storytelling.
Yes, building a story with you is my love applied.
Inside you begin as the seed of trust sprouts,
determined in the spirit with each step.
The gift of intuitive instinct guides focus,
each path individually unique.
You move along a purposeful path,
blessings of experience strengthen resolve.
Resonate voice scripts the scenes of life,
a courageous yes to what is true.
Enlightened in trust you have learned,
love flows through a serving purpose.
