Here on Earth


Here on earth

Is where things are real

Where the touch of your hand

Awoke the pain I felt

When you told me of the cancer

Here on earth

A body that feels

Perhaps longed to take flight

But the sky is not really my home

Just a place I ran to

Hoping to ease the pain

Here on earth is where the true healing happens

Where in opening our hearts to what is real

Resistance ends

Pain waits patiently

Perhaps for many years

Needing to find a home in us

A place to be felt, surrendered to, transformed

Tears you release the pain

You are not the thing to be scorned

Though others so often do

You help the healing happen

And the descent to take place

As defences are surrendered

We touch true ground

Only the defended criticise

Or tell us to rise above it all

And their criticism shows

The difficulty they have

With accepting what is most real in us

By those who find it hard to understand

What it truly means to live on earth

But you know

That here on earth is where you must live

In a body that suffers

Which has the capacity to bear

That agony which through suffering

Is finally laid to rest

Here deep on earth

"The religious naturalist is provisioned with tales of natural emergence that are, to my mind, far more magical than traditional miracles. Emergence is inherent in everything that is alive, allowing our yearning for supernatural miracles to be subsumed by our joy in the countless miracles that surround us." Ursula Goodenough How to describe oneself? People are a mystery and there is so much more to us than just our particular experiences or occupations. I could write down a list of attributes and they still might not paint a complete picture pf Deborah Louise and in any case it would not be the full truth of me. I would say that my purpose here on Wordpress is to express some of my random experiences, thoughts and feelings, to share about my particular journey and explore some subjects dear to my heart, such as emotional recovery, healing and astrology while posting up some of the prose/poems which are an outgrowth of my labours with life, love and relationships. If anything I write touches you I would be so pleased to hear for the purpose of reaching out and expressung ourselves is hopefully to connect with each other and find where our souls meet.
