love each and every piece…

by Leonie Dawson on October 27, 2005

“Love all that has been created by God, both the whole and every grain of sand. Love every leaf and every ray of light. Love the beasts and the birds, love the plants, love every separate fragment. If you love each separate fragment, you will understand the mystery of the whole resting in God.”

~ Fyodor Dostoevsky

Can I be okay
with not being okay
all the time

“If you want to catch beasts you don’t see everyday,
You have to go places quite out of the way.
You have to go places no others can get to.
You have to get cold and you have to get wet, too.”
~ Dr. Seuss

Can I be okay with not writing everyday?
With learning to hold on to my lessons until they are ready to fruit?

These are my lessons right now.

My blessings, and my lessons.

6.12 pm this evening

The time felt ripe. A new initiation, another rite of passage.
My eyebrow ring has been a symbol of my flight into self, my blossoming spirituality, my joyful embrace of what is my own.
It has been a powerful blessing for me.
I continue this journey,
and I am stripping myself down to the bare essentials.
So I unscrewed it. Took out the beautiful blue titanium
that has adorned my face for three months now. Buried it in the garden.
Thanked it deeply for its gifts.

I become more like myself every day.

I took my eyebrow ring out today
and buried it into the garden
for new things to grow.
I am so grateful for this journey.
