Mindfully in the moment I breathe

What a paradox

To be mindfully in the moment

Means I am with my experience

And touch my thoughts lightly

Only to let them go

And put the focus on my breath

Noticing where it flows

Noticing the sensations on my skin

And in my body

And the feelings that arise

That tell me I am alive

Fear and terror of past pain

Makes me pull back from sensation

Too acute

It feels as though I am dying

And there is death in no forward movement

In holding on too tightly to the breath

As thoughts of fear run rampant

Touching then lightly

I let them go

I return to the breath

To the sensations in my body

To what fear feels like

Beyond thoughts of the mind

Noticing them and letting them go

I feel life again

Flowing through me

Love arises here as I open

Love and softness

Touching past pain

Letting it go

While feeling it deeply

Telling me I am alive

"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.
