A Current Robinson Crusoe

 “The night was thick and hazy
when the Pickadilly Daisy
Carried down the crew and captain into the sea;
And I think the water drowned ‘em,
As I never ever found ‘em
And I know they didn’t come ashore with me.”

Have you ever felt shipwrecked?
Here on this strange planet,
looking around for others like you?

“Twas very sad and lonely
when I found myself the only
population on that cultivated shore.”

Initially, in a tiny body
We’re sure somehow
our parents really are
shipmates from the “daisy”
and will understand us
and we them.

“But I’ve made a little tavern
in a rocky little cavern
and I sit and watch for people by the door.”

And so we spend our lives looking
for those “original shipmates,
who came from
where we came from.

“I spent no time in looking
for a girl to do my cooking
as I’m quite a clever hand at making stews”

We learn to made do,
to settle for the ingredients
we have….
Yet always watching
at the door for the high joy
of running into someone
from our clan,
our original ship.

Think of all the stories,
books and movies about this:
Gilligan’s Island, Swiss Family Robinson,
Robinson Crusoe, ET, Castaway.
How many more can you think of?

I know that I have
been sitting and watching
for people at the door
for much of my life.

Circle of Life

From this non-corporeal
side of life’s veil
we mourn your
leaving our love
to take on a baby’s body.

And we celebrate so,
when that 3D journey
is done…..
and you choose to release
that temporary body
and return to this home,
back to your greater
loving family.

Im form, in a body
humans celebrate so
the joy of a new babe,
able to hold that
sweet innocence in arms.

And humans grieve so deeply
when their loved one’s soul
is finished with the 3D life experience
and allows the body to die.

The great circle of life.

My eldest was born in August.
He stood, right on time,
a year later,
toddling into winter
in tiny mutton boots.

By November he insisted
on braving the snowy gravel path
to the car alone.  “I do Mama”.

I trailed his toddling,
wholly focused,
desperate to catch him
before he fell,
bare hands into the cold snow.

Wishing with all of me,
that he’d hold my hand,
allowing me to keep him
upright through the
snow covered obstacles.

My guides say
it’s exactly the same
for them.

In this free will zone
we are welcome to
“I do” it alone.
But guides are trailing
each of us,
focused on offering us help
through the hidden obstacles
of our ego selves and
our old patterns and self judgments.

And like loving parents,
they offer a hand up:
BUT only at your request.

They are eagerly awaiting
your request to
“hold my hand, please.”

Facing Forward

I bend my back
into the oars,
head bent,
glancing up,
only to see
my back story….
who I’ve been
where I’ve been
how I’ve been.

I choose
the kayak,
sitting within
the water of spirit,
facing forward,
the future.

Paddle dipping
to the right,
projecting out
future dreams and intentions

Paddle entering
spirit water
on the left,
messages and insights
I receive.

I glide forward
my future.

Tipping Point II

The ancient see-saw,
for so long 
tipped up for
money and material.

The value was
on things owned,
and through  the
patriarchal power,
through punishment.

Now the tipping of 2012
is reversing the see saw.
The end up now
is connection with Creator,
through the heart, 
holding each other
and happiness.

The new mandate
is to kindness
inclusion and
focus on inner guidance.
