I am the Earth,
You are my Rain.
You are the Earth,
I am your Rain.
(from Tales of Dark and Light, Ada)
Growth isn’t always obvious or clear to the looking eye, or even to ourselves.
Growth is a silent pencil, transforming us and the lines of our Reality, at times wild and screaming, at times tamed and discrete.
Freeing oneself from the addiction of “doing”, and “being” instead, moving into Presence, is not so popular, and easily neglected.
“Learning by doing” applies sometimes, sometimes not, depends on doing what.
Enjoy your Growth.
Give me the medicine and heal me now…
Patterns and “rotten roots” are at times grown and stable in our Inner, we even do not know what they are, or where they come from…but “the doctor” has to fix it FAST…
Give me the pill for Happiness, give me the pill for Balance, and do it NOW, so I do not need to do any thing…
Big Mystery and Spirits may do the job? Maybe we also need to keep on working, patience and discipline may help?
We are a little funny at times…:)
We all are dancing…
Some of us graciously, beautifully,
some of us stiff, some of us staccato,
some of us quiet,
some of us stopped dancing on this Planet some time ago,
they maybe dance some other place, some other way.
We worry so much about our dance, is it meaningful, is it good, is it worthy?
Spirit watches us dancing, and smiles.

Clean up your Home and your Body, refresh both
Collect to give away things you do not need anymore, or that bind you to unsatisfying memories or persons
Give donations to Charity, or presents to Friends/People in need
Be nice to whoever you meet, and try “smiling for today”, alone or with others
Take time remembering your “best moments” and the “tricky ones” too
Turn on a candle and enjoy looking at the flame
Take time for You without “distractions”, and maybe a present
Take time to dream wonderful Dreams about you, your beloved ones, and the Earth
Meditate sending Light and Healing to someone you know who is not so well
Meditate sending Forgiveness to the ones who have hurt you, and to yourself
Pray, dance, sing, love, go for a good walk…
and your own “best things to do”
we find ourselves confronting the Judge,
who what is “right”, who what is “wrong”…
The thousands ways and choices disappear
in the Starry Night,
we are so small…
but Beings of Light
…maybe to be found again…
The Judge is killing,
the Judge is teaching,
it removes us from the Now
it tells Lies and Stories, at times the Truth…
… Rules and patterns we created,
what we did, and did not do…
how long did we forget to respect our own Reality…
and to listen to our Heart Voice…
Seeing our patterns is interesting and painful
seeing our Prison is disturbing…
Spying on the Light…
…coming back Alive…
“who am I ?”
“what is my nourishment ?”
“where do I give, where do I take?”
There is a Sky above
and an Earth below,
honour the Temple we are in,
and remember our Souls…
We are here for some Time…
Living is a good Idea…
(…one of my dear clients borrowed my old book, and was touched by this one little poem, therefore I like to share it with You)
I would like to learn to be
transparent, clear, with many facets,
precious as a Diamond,
be able to forget it ,
(from Ombre Luminose, Shining Shadows, 1992)
Trees are loosing their Leaves now.
Another kind of Beauty appears, the Beauty of Nakedness,
The Beauty of Essence.
I see Your amazing Bodies, Your Structures, Your Forms,
this different Power…
I see You Beings, Brothers and Sisters
and I wonder
why it is so hard for Us
to dare to show Ourselves in our Essence,
to dare to see and to express Our Power,
…and why it is so hard for Us to learn to rest,
when We can learn from You…
A “sweet” story, dedicated to all “intros…”
“For many years I lived feeling “wrong”, “forced” myself to be “social” at all times. I felt I needed peace, but did not think I deserved it, and thought that was egoistic, “wrong” and “unworthy”.
One day a friend proposed to do a test, I normally do not do these things, but on that day I did. The test was about performance, how and when one works best etc., a long and actually interesting and “serious” one.
At the end of course, the results: surprise, surprise, I was an INTROVERTED! I had always thought the opposite, but it never felt quite right.
What was I? What had I been?
I had never ever considered that an “explanation” could “help”, or that a definition, a name, a box, a label, could change anything at all!
I am not fond of “boxes”, but I did feel “released” somehow.
Some kind of “mistery” was dissolved, the “monster” was just that!
The “monster” was my pattern, and not me.
Since then, I could understand and accept myself a little more.
I am an introverted, I am true to myself , I may work on it, and change but .. I am alright! :)”
(thanks to A for inspiring story)
Equinox coming up…
Balance between Light and Dark,
Fruits are perfect, Fruits are rotten…
Maybe on the day we should listen to Silence, and not speak.
Maybe on the day we should fast instead of eating.
Maybe on the day we should not listen to other than ourselves,
or listen only to others.
Maybe we should have a day off,
or have fun.
Maybe on that day we should see the Sunset,
and “pray” our own way, for what we feel is needed,
or not pray at all…
Be our World and Lives blessed and respected.
A small dark skinned Lady rushes in the church with incense, a bottle, and a chicken…
A tall proud Man rises his shell to the Skies and blows…
An Untouchable rises his axe to cut the head of the bull for Kali…
In the Jungle the Shaman blows his whistle…
By the Sacred River Lights and Flowers are given to the Waters…
In the Desert a man is praying on his carpet…
In the city the Woman looks at the Skies…
At the hospital on intensive care, the Family is silent…
Oh yes, we all can talk to Big Mistery, and all the Other Ones,
and it is a sign of Humility, and Courage, and maybe Crazyness,
but we ARE allowed, and we all can…
….maybe more of a concept, than a “real thing” for some.
Very good exercise here: put a Stone on anything higher that you, and that can shake, in any position that is not too sure, in an unbalanced balance, and do things right under it.
If you are busy enough, at some point you will forget about the Stone, and if you are really busy, you will forget it completely.
Be very busy right under the Stone, until you come to shake the thing, and the Stone falls on your Head or on your Feet.
Sure after a few “damn!” and maybe some Pain, you will understand what I mean.
You felt better before. Be thankful for yesterday, where the Stone was not there, and that the Stone did not damage you so much, or kill you.
That is clear understanding on Thankfulness.
Usually things could be MUCH WORSE! 🙂
The more I am with/meet/listen to People, the more my horizon about the complexity and the Beauty and the Pain we contain expands.
I am fascinated by all differences and similarities, challenges and solutions, gifts and perversions we all contain, by our stories, the strangest ones, the dramas, the victories.
I see Hearts opening, showing their Inner Jewel, whatever the Jewel is, “good” or “bad”, “happy” or “painful”.
I feel Truth about what/who we are, I learn, and my Respect and my Compassion grow.
We all are “working on It”, our Lives.
The cleaning man came this spring, like every year, to clean the chiminy.
Usually he comes all to early for me, and he did it again, but I was ready this time.
Usually he comes in a hurry, do the job, and moves on.
This time I asked (as usual) if he wished a cup of coffee?…
His answer is a cliche, (and we all have heard it before),
“I never refuse a good offer” (“Jeg siger aldrig nej til et godt tilbud”),
but on that one special morning, this simple wisdom hit me…:)
EnLightment (or however we choose to call it),
A moment of Clarity, of Unity, of Peace, of Love, of ?
I believe it can happen to anyone, at any time.
And as it can happen …
to the Drunk and to the Healer,
to the Lover and to the Junkie,
to the Guru and to the Humble
to the Sick and to the Healthy,
to the Dying and to the Gambler,
to the Old and to the Young (and so on….)
I wish and hope it also can happen
to the ones with their nose in the mobile…
(smile, this one is not so sweet, but it came like that,
a moment of silly enLightment?) 🙂
My work is a wonderful work, is a crazy work, is a daring work,
is a tyring work, is a dangerous work, is an adventurous work,
is a satisfiying work, is a complicated work, is a sweet work,
is a loving work, is a wild work, is a compassionate work,
is a giving work, is a caring work, is hard work,
is “no security” work, is a surprising work, is a delicate work,
is a touching work, is a taking work, is a disciplined work,
is an aware work, is an intimate work, is a stressful work, is a relaxed work,
is a sharing work, is a volunteer work, is a complicated work,
is an easy and natural work, is a GREAT work, is a challenging work,
is a selfless work, is a teaching work, is a learning work,
is a painful work, is a joyful work, is the simplest work,
is a ” next days no money” work, is a “no time for me or anybody else” work
is a ” work done, move on now” work, is (a few times) “boring” work, is a “who else is gonna do it ?” work
is advanced work, is intimate work, is social work,
is spiritual work, is counselling work, is nurturing work, is giving work …
Showing You the Doors and the Power You maybe could not see or feel before, Opening, and See You enter and discover.
And staying hidden still present just in case…
Sweet Jesus, they say you were a good man and you did and said good things.
On Easter days, you are remembered and celebrated, your great suffering and dying, and your Ressurrection…
You moved against untruth, profit and idols, and You put the Innocent and the Poor higher. You teached us Humbleness and showed us Miracles. You tought us to keep on the way of Love and Compassion, on the way of Forgiveness…
Many of us are good People, and still we suffer and “get crucified” many times in many ways, and we carry pain…
We die, in a different way than You, but we still die, and, in a different way than you, some of us get Reborn, and others stay dead inside.
Sweet Jesus, if You are there, help the People in trouble.
Whether we believe, we choose to believe, or we just do not mind to “give it a try”, it has been “shown” in a few ways that Water does or “seems” to have a memory.
Mr. Emoto’s photos on Water chrystals treated “good” or “bad”and few others experiments done worldwide seem to give us “proof” of another possibility we do have to change our Lives and our World for better.
Therefore we also have another responsability, to do our best for common good, ourselves, the next generations, and the Planet.
I am sure many People are already working on it, in many ways, but why not add to it?
Why not have more Respect for the Water we use everyday, why not bless our Water before we drink it, why not bless the Water inside ourselves, why not put a thought of Love and Healing when we enter our Oceans, why not pray Healing into small Stones and Crystals to release into our larger Waters?
It only costs Awareness, Intent, and a little time.
On the last ceremony I was part of, we all blessed and put our Love, one by one, into the Water taken from a Lake in a vessel, and we released it back to the Lake after. So easy can it be done. How much it works? Who knows, but Love and Healing work always, at least some.
For some of us who love ceremonies, let us do more of them. I INVITE YOU on 11 april (coming FullMoon) to do this again. We will start on Amager fælled, and we will relaease our Water by Islands Brygge coastline.
For you who are “discrete”, or want to “do your thing in your own way” , do it your way.
Anything helps!:) And thanks to all who will do.
Ps: let us meet by me in Ballonparken at 19.00, and work outdoor if possible afterwards. Please sign up by text/sms, latest one day in advance. Bring “sacred Water” and small Crystals (if you have), Water to drink, and a bottle (if you wish to have some “blessed Water” back).
