Emancipated Forever

Seeing, she looks with 2020 visions,
New beginnings of creation.
She deepens her experience of inner peace, grace, self-awareness.
Her experience of her value feels like an immortal internal diamond no one can touch.
This precious jewel sparkles all the time.
Two more books beyond the two before, now five books, no wait six, then seven books hold her words, candor, wisdoms gleaned from walking through fires, from loving herself even when others loathed her.
She finds her voice and amplifies this voice in places she had never even imagined.
Writing becomes a catharsis, a freedom, a flood from her wild, fiery, loving soul, a joy, a pathway through dark woods of disbelief and deceptions, a bridge between her heart and other hearts, tender reveals of the achingly humbling human and humane kind.
She connects with wonderful, delicious, multifaceted, fascinating, caring, wise people in ways she could not have predicted. Is anything actually predictable?
She meditates like her life depends on this nourishment because it does.
She grieves the losses-the layered, hidden, disenfranchised, unspoken losses. She carries grief in every cell of her naked, unclenched hands, the soles of her bare feet, the sacred places.
She discovers movement amid the messiness.
She shifts, adapts, pivots like a fearless dancer willing to move in countless ways with the invisible partners of Uncertainty and The Unknown.
She flows with hope, even optimism.
She doesn’t ever give up on love.
She embodies self-compassion, compassion for others.
She listens with her entire body in rapt attention, her mind simultaneously quiet and very alive.
She sleeps deeply, dreams of happy, laughing people, fairies, and sprites hugging one another, their beloved pets, the life-giving trees.
She realizes how she can love Mother Earth in the same ways she loves her miraculous earth made body and her spirit kissed being.
Her ghostlike Witness Self, a silent companion all the days of her life, expands. Trust, Faith, Kindness, Humility are her heroines as Vulnerability becomes her greatest strength.
She knows she’s whole and unstoppable in her commitment to tell her truth, to live aligned with lasting wisdoms from direct experiences. She stands with conscious courage undaunted by fears feckless ways and the many unhealed pains of others which persistently project and protrude.
Breaking free from unconscionable actions to control, contain, and shame her, she runs emancipated forever in the fresh air filled with the sounds of a chittering kingfisher, honking geese, quacking ducks, squawking herons, splash landings in a lake surrounded by rocks, sensuous, lush, magical mountains.
She delightfully lives forever free.

  1. Larry, thank you for your kind feedback and the meaningful insight which I definitely experience-like after emptying a drawer or cleaning the dishes-we can sit still and rest. Yes “When we say what we need, we can then embrace the quiet.” empty the heart and let it overflow with love… I appreciate you, my friend. Grateful for your kindness, support, and friendship.
