I Have No Authority Figure

My Virgo-ness so loves

order, outlines and org charts.

But we no longer recognize

any external authority figure.

There is no God out there,

only a huge Creator in here,

with whom

Second Wind

I find myself
on my second wind.

After the years
of wanting
“work release”
from this body,
this 3D density.

I find myself

And super excited
about what’s to come.

I arrive at Coeur D’Alene in August

preparing to walk the familiar pine-needled path

through ancient trees, toward the hills.

But the path is totally different.

Spruce beetle kill has downed the huge trees

blocking the path, routing one far uphill.

And light floods into

what was once deep forest.

So odd… filled with light, yet not passable.

How like my inner life.

The old path of service to others

regardless of the cost to me,

has become impassable.

Now the path is rerouted anew,

unknown and unclear.

I walk a new path that releases me

from the old patterns of a “good” woman

who gives more than she has,

who stays until death

who never gets angry.

I walk the new path.

I serve the light as defined from within.

I serve the light of peace and contentment,

of joy and harmony and growth.

I’ve graduated to a new path

that only opens right in front of me.

I’ve graduated into a new path

of loving me enough

to fill my own well

from within.

Loving Me, Not Being Lovable

I drive over this

rough road,

cut anew.

The car is

rocking and rolling.

I feel such gratitude

for this new path.

As you choose

not me,


I find the

true place

off my value.

I find and name,

I discover and allow,

a bigger and deeper

love of and for


The work

of being



is to love self

not be lovable.

E- Motion


is energy

in motion.


I find/feel

the energy,

the frequency

of my insecurity.

I forgive

that part of me,

that so wishes

I’d do it better,

hold more strongly.

When my Virgo

mutable self

is so dedicated

to dissolving and


True transformation

comes through forgiveness.

I allow forgiveness.

I forgive me.

Sedona Journal, June 2010 Page 89


Your 9 year old boy body

stumbles to my meditation chair

sleep heavy.

You body curls,

an unfurled fern,

to fit into the lap

of my empty chalice.

My heart vibrates


as it pumps love out

over your every cell.

This is sweetness

Beyond imagining.

The Holy Grail II/2/too

The Holy Grail, the chalice

of my precious human body

is porous.

Each jewel

studding the goblet,

another piece of



The chalice is porous.

Each jewel now dedicated

to the release of that liquid,

that definition of Lizette.

The goblet empties of liquid,

leaving space for light and love.

Not of love given by another,

but of love discovered and allowed

for Self.

The Holy Grail, the chalice

then becomes the emptiness,

the nothingness,

the ordinariness

that allows it to overflow

with the light of joy

And love for all.
