When my mother labored,
and I was delivered
Daddy’s and husbands
were not allowed near.

Mom’s themselves,
flat on their backs,
were not present but drugged.
Babies arrived asleep,
“under the influence”.

One generation later,
when I had my babies,
moving around encouraged,
midwives working with doctors.
Pain meds available
but not pushed, not taken.

Baby’s Daddy’s and friends
present and involved.
Babies, once again
delivered to wide awake love.

Now each of us is
birthing our post 2012 world,
deep in those labor pains.

The world is not going away
in 2012.
But right now you
are determining what
that new world
will be like for you.

Are you laboring
flat on your back,
listening to instructions
from someone else?
Are you accepting the anesthesia
that the economic powers
offer you minute by minute?
Another credit care application.
And you’re already approved!!
Buy more.
Have more.
Show off more,
but don’t think.

Or are you in labor,
breathing with the pain,
grateful for each respite?
Lining your bed side
with friends and family and guides
who truly support you.

Are you using
a walk in the sun,
a funny movie,
coffee with friend
for your pain meds?

We are all laboring.
And we will deliver.

I want my new life
to be delivered to
wide awake love and joy.
Not to mention deep peace.

 A mother stands,
pudgy fingers
framing her face.
“ook at me, mama”
“ook at me,
full attention demanded.

Christ stands
arms outstretched.
Each of us choosing
how much of his attention
we think we deserve.

The Creator stands
arms behind Her back.
A humble servant,
loyal to our peace and joy,
and equally loyal to our
judgement and fear.
moving only to create
upon our request.

What do YOU choose?

2012 is Coming!

2012 is coming!

Remember 2000?
Y2-K, the millennium,
when all the
worlds computers

Oh no
you say,
it was
hardly a blip—
maybe a hangover.

And, buried in that
“barely a blip”
unfolded a PC on every desk.
An internet coming with
Friedman’s “flat world” of
instant connections

December 21, 2012
will be barely a blip
yet can be:
   love in every cell of our bodies
      respecting differences
         compassion for self
            acceptance of ourselves and others

It can be:
   an overlapping of duality
      to the acceptance of
         we are all One.

A New Will Pattern

Out of the old world,
we’re graduating from
the patriarchal male
will pattern that was:
“I can do whatever I want.”
And from the female will pattern of:
“I don’t know what I want, it’s OK.”

And now we can choose to step forward,
into a new androgynous  will pattern of
sacred intention: 
“Will alignment with mission.”

Ah, with my mission?
And is that filling every cell
of my body with love and peace?
Of course it is.

And is that moving into
the greatest acceptance
and compassion for myself
that I can hold?
Of course it is.

And then the work is aligning
my sacred intention within
the hours of each day,
structured by work,
by social engagements,
by family time.
Only Creator and I know if I’m
in will alighnment in each moment.

In these amazing

We lean
out of the present
into that fun trip
coming up
into that
scary meeting tomorrow.

But in meditation
we lean into
being present.
