The Body Remembers

Beautiful friend, we have imagined that
what we feel and the burden we have carried
is so unique to us.
That one, seemingly outside looking in,
has a very good view of who we think we are
and how we have believed we were supposed to be.

You have become concerned for yourself
and a part of you believes retreating
into aloneness will change this.
Sometimes that aloneness is perfect,
sometimes the heart seeks the company of
companions in form so, its little worries
get cancelled out by the laughter of one
who isn't marching to that song of isolation.
Breathe, and 'Feelisten' to what the body remembers...
Aaah...memory returns!

The new matrix of your life
unfolds through every breath.
Every moment you gaze with presence,
with nothing to conceal from that one
who already sees what you have
feared to be true about yourself
is merely the outcome of misdirected attention,
your self returns to you, to this moment.

In all I say to you, I am speaking
to that One, the Beloved in all...
I will sing it!
Let me caress away the cares of your mind
that have taken residence in your body.
Your body remembers...the resonance of Home.

The Law of Grace in This Place Dear Heart, Rest for now as breaths of deepest Grace carry you into that place where all possibilities reside. In feeling alone, sometimes the motivation to reach out, to reach in deeper and find what has been there all along. It never left you, a loving so true, a caring so complete though, you seemingly left that field where possibilities become positive abilities... The Grace of God only needs a little "yes" to make itself known, and you only need a little "Aaah" to make room for all you have accummulated to fall into the compost pile of the garden you forgot to tend while there with another you thought to mend. Love knows how, grows how and shows how...are you watching or believing you are in control and that this outcome or that one is dependent on you? One camp says it is, while the other laughs at such beliefs. Have you forgotten that your allegiance to 'this and that' is what brings 'this and that' into your experience? A contradiction within everything in this world keeps the soul moving-through to what is actually present here and now. Are you? Breathe and find and follow the answers shining within those questions. There are those who appear to know...they give diagnosis and outcomes with an authority that many give in to. Remember this, everything spoken is an echo of what can be and all that remains unspoken still lives for you to see so very much more is coming to bless. No human knows what is going to be in your life. You decide...God is is every cell glistening and reflecting what you are projecting. How has what has come to pass, made its way into your class? What is truly your life lesson? What choose you to be greater, to lessen? Angels come when they are called In truth they didn't leave at all. The law of Grace was lost in this place.
