A few months ago I participated in a meditation retreat. After a long period of silence we were allowed to share whatever was on our mind. I wrote this poem from a place of inspiration after listening to a woman I had only just begun to get to know. Sometimes the most important lessons can come from a brief encounter.
Her questions became my questions, for they are universal ones. But how often do we feel safe enough to ask them? Who will listen? Who will lend a hand? My experience has told me that by sharing from a place of innocence, we invite in the feminine in others: listening, sharing, allowing, nurturing, holding, comforting. These are some of the qualities of the feminine archetype. The feminine is a force for healing. It needs the masculine to be whole, but most of us have been taught the masculine without giving equal value to the feminine. I will talk more about this in future blogs, but for now, I’d like to know:
What do you need? Who do you get it from? Where might you look?
Blessings upon your innocence and your innate goodness.
