Perhaps the most important thing we bring to another person is the silence in us, **not the sort of silence that is filled with unspoken criticism or hard withdrawal.
The sort of silence that is a place of refuge, of rest, of acceptance of someone as they are. We are all hungry for this other silence. It is hard to find. In its presence we can remember something beyond the moment , a strength on which to build a life.
Silence is a place of great power and healing ..

I realized my ” super power ” is my vulnerable state
and how deeply I bond with those “different ” folks
and deeply whom I share my ” super power”
while transversing humanity …
The massive labeling of our children , then races ,
women and children.
As the daughter of a compliant LPN who popped
those magic pills of pharmaceutical death , which
cost her her life after 5 years of agony , followed by
her 1st born daughter’s horrific death . Neither
necessary , and I have learned both Grandmothers died
with Valium addiction , depleting their strength,
physically , emotionally and spiritually .
I had the awareness magnified, of the drain and possible
demise resulting of holding emotions in, of non
communication, of not healing trauma ..of course not
knowing the term trauma , as a child , but certainly
holding my own , and being a problem child .
No one , NO one acknowledged my oral rape in
family but Dad. At a time when their marriage had
taken a huge nose dive , both had affairs , after a time
reuniting , ignoring the devastation showing up
in ” adverse” behaviors.
I was very nervous internally, chewing the inside of
my mouth down to popping out a nerve . In addition
to poor nutrition , lack of instruction in a home
of no structure, I hid in my room for privacy and to
avoid being put to work..or watching behaviors I
found uncomfortable .
No peace , no privacy , no space inside I was in my
room or outside or at a friend’s.
I note that in council as well, the deepest hurt , the
hardest to look at , our fractured families, shadow
and light , that ultimately demands strong boundaries
which comes with self worth as one takes charge
and ” mothers ” oneself as the mother longed for ..
I fill that spot for some , even if for that one talk .
As well as adults , after 4 hours of talking to a very
intelligent, single man, he said he has no one to talk
to that has the info I have ..I gave him my card but
I have not heard from him.
I am aquetely aware that indivually peace with in
and peace within our homes is vital to our planet .
It is as vital to Mother Earth 🌎 ❤.
A shift is occurring and I am very happy to be
acknowledged as such , as I conclude business , legal
left undone and in shambles, many unpleasant truths
await , as I take it day by day , every effort to solidify
my foundation and thus leave some legacy and honor
for our family with facts that helped healed me …
Our children seek mentors , wisdoms , acceptance
and our truths are vital in being heard , we have hope
and faith to begin to release old hurts , often stepping
out of the family dynamic that does not resonate
until we gain strength in all ways required.
It was vital to my recovery, and thus to be there for Dad
as well as our sons who still reject me…I understand
but again , my awareness of how vital this is , has
brought me to this point , of surrender to Thy Will
allowing all to flow ..
I am striving for every ounce of strength to set up my
office as 3 months later , much has delayed my ability
to get my things in storage.., As a result I am depleted
and in constant need of rest . However , I am Blessed
indeed to have helpers , angels without wings , from
Landlord to my 2 bestest 💖, who treat me very well.
Its a very healthy , intelligent exchange full of respect
and love and we ” glow ” hours into working together
we know peace , and union ..
Peace with in , the mutual exchange of love and respect
without one bit of negatives , is a Blessing .
This , along with many more over the years , as long
as I can remember , I have had awareness that I totally
accept , and I accept that some don’t hear me and I don’t
matter , but I cannot allow that energy to defeat me .
I have dental issues , gut issues , that I am determined
to heal, and so I discern better ….Peace within and
without as our children require and deserve is
All that should be is returned to you , as I am learning
each and every day .
We return to ourselves, and its not always possible
to hold old energies that have nothing to support you .
Its scary , and holds much power, liberated to be…who
we are , who we are meant to be ..escaping the eternal
box or shroud of families who desire us to hold trauma
in fear of change .
Light attracts light , and shadow test us , in our efforts
to reach for more light, calm and peace .
Blessings & Peace ,
”Imagine that it didn’t happen the way you were told in the religious communities of childhood. Imagine hearing Eve’s words read from the sacred text one morning at your church, synagogue, mosque, or women’s circle:
As the Mother of all Living, I pick the fruit of life. It is good and satisfies hunger. It is pleasant to the eye. It is wise and opens the way to self-discovery and understanding. Those among you who are curious, who lust for life in all its fluidity, dare with me—bite into your life and the fullness of its possibility.
After Eve’s words are read, the elder women give an apple to the first person in the row. As the crone hands you an apple, she looks into your eyes and says:
Take and eat of the good fruit of life. You are good. You are very good. Bite into the apple and savor its sweetness.
After everyone has partaken of the good fruit of life, the closing blessing is spoken:
Open to the depths of goodness within you. Believe in your goodness. Live out of the abundance of who you are as a child of life. Affirm the original goodness of your children until the stories of old hold no sway in their hearts. Bite into your life and the fullness of its possibility.”

Source: Matt KahnTo round out today’s day of poetry, I’m sharing one I wrote years’ ago as my open letter to the spiritual ego. Both the one I faced in myself and in others. Its incredible how relevant it is in today’s current landscape. May we all learn to lead with love. Connecting instead of correcting. Please enjoy:
Oh Sweet Soul Oh sweet soul, who’s learned so muchYour triggers ignited through the words you clutchRehearsals are done, your performance is setTo overemphasize what you’re meant to forgetHow much you’ve survived, you’ve come so farBut correcting others is not who you areYou’re desperate to feed a world with no bowlPlease open your eyes – oh sweet soul Oh sweet soul, who can’t see pastEach aha moment that cannot lastYou’re not in charge of what needs to be knownBut here to inspire throughout actions shownInsight was gathered, you’ve become well-equippedTo notice new patterns, while control still grippedYou’ll encounter so many throughout fate’s playAnd fight for the chance to have your sayIs projecting your ideas a part of the goal?Please think again – oh sweet soul Oh sweet soul, why do you suggestYour concepts to those who act as your testYou’ve looked within and found the DivineClarity kindled, but you’re calling it “Mine”And now you debate to correct who you seeNot seeing your shadow – a spiritual “me”It’s not liberation till you’re free of the thoughtThat forces you to speak just to see where you’re caughtYou say ‘all is one’ like a truth no one knewAnd if there’s only one – who are you speaking to?Intentions are so pure, while blinded by a roleCorrecting all your critics – oh sweet soul Oh sweet soul, it’s time to open upAnd bring forth the love that overflows your cupThere’s much to consider and many to embraceBut no one to correct – no matter who you faceI welcome every judgment, regardless how unclearTo see the one I’m facing and know that God is hereSilence makes one humble and humble helps you seeSince there’s only one, we’re free to disagreeI welcome each projection, as if you know my pathYou need it more than I do to validate your wrathYou’re free to misperceive me and have the final wordI thank you for the practice to let your voice be heardWhy hide from your freedom, just let it takes its tollAnd break apart your certainty – oh sweet soul Oh sweet soul, may you come to realizeYou need not affirm what another one deniesIn a world of so much wisdom, there’s no end to what is trueYou’re free to do your dance and watch what captures youRepeating every concept, as if it meant a thingPerformance never-ending for those who pull your stringAnd even as I say this, you’ll turn it back on meAs if the truth is hidden and only you can seeI love the light within you, thank God it can’t preventA chance to love you deeper despite the package sentPoint out every fragment and misperceive the wholeYour innocence respected – oh sweet soul Matt Kahn
“Notice the Feeling of being at a turning point in the nature of our species. Upheavals around you in the economy and elsewhere are symptoms of far deeper evolution.
Visualize shifting from Homo sapiens to Homo luminous, that is, at a cellular level, emerging as beings with ability to Perceive Vibration and Light that creates physical worlds at a much higher level.
See the grid or holodeck of Energy that reveals what is behind what you think.
You are a Wizard projecting from behind your own curtain. Answers to longstanding mysteries of existence are arising like the Phoenix Within.
Evolution is accelerating not between generations,
but within a generation.
This shatters beliefs about how evolution works, Inviting you to question all beliefs and shift attention to deeper, Innate knowing.
Imagine a Biological and Spiritual Quantum Leap in this Life.
The caterpillar does not know what is coming. Trust in the process.”

…“You who have walked the lonely path of Light are soon to be joined by many, many others who will begin to walk their path with you. For every sacrifice you have made for the highest good of all, the Universe is already bringing to you many… wonderful synchronicities, miracles and gifts. All you have to do is open your hearts to receive and be in trust and in joy. Watch for these in your daily living, recognize them, receive them, enjoy them and record them. Soon you will begin to know without a shadow of doubt that you have always been loved and cared for and that you never walk alone.”
