I received this through the Kaleidosoul SoulCollage Yahoo board.
It speaks to me and I wanted to share it with you.
FOR A NEW BEGINNING
In out-of-the-way places of the heart,
Where your thoughts never think to wander
this beginning has been quietly forming,
waiting til you were ready to emerge.
For a long tiem it has watched your desire,
feelign the emptiness growing inside you,
noticing how you willed yourself on,
still unable to leave what you had outgrown.
It watched you play with the seduction of safety,
and the grey promises that sameness whispered,
heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent,
wondered would you always live like this.
Then in delight, when your courage kindled,
and you stepped onto new ground,
your eyes young again with energy and dream,
a path of plentitude opening before you.
Though your destination is not yet clear,
you can trust the promise of this opening,
unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning,
that is one with your life's desire.
Awaken your spirit to adventure
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk,
soon you will be home in new rhythm,
for your soul senses the world that awaits you.

Am in disbelief this morning to hear that Melbourne was rocked by an Earthquake last night. I have no words. Just shaking head. It was apparently mild enough to not have caused much damage, but still, the main damage would have been done to peoples psyche's.
One month ago today since the bushfires in Victoria.
Please send healing thoughts to our sisters and brothers in the south east of Australia who must be reeling in shock.
Am off to the cottage this morning to see what bargains i can find at the Garage Sale.
Have a nice weekend .
