Sanctuary in the Storm

Sanctuary in the Storm

Hello My Dear, Are you having a full summer? Is life being kind to you? I’m at the start of two weeks away. A much needed trip to my favorite beach.   To be honest my summer has been plagued with uncertainty and Olympic levels of stress. One by one the pillars of my personal life have been shaken as I’ve watched each of those I hold most dear face terminal health issues or personal crises.   I’ve stood by and loved, listened, cared for, supported and came to recognize each of their fates was ultimately beyond my control. The ending of each of their stories was out of my hands. At times that feeling of powerlessness and uncertainty has felt brutal.   And other times absolutely absurd – just laughable – in it’s relentlessness and outrageousness. Like the day I was preparing to visit my mother with terminal cancer and father with dimenitia only to end up in the ER waiting to see if my husband’s chest pains were from indigestion or a heart attack. (Thankfully the former.) But that wasn’t clear until we sat in the unknown for a few hours waiting for test results.   At that point I was ready to pen a cease and desist letter to Universe. Like enough already!   At one time or another we all face seasons of stress, challenge or upheaval when it can feel like all we can do is show up and keep going as Life plays dodge ball with you.At those times it can be tempting to hunker down, engage our defenses and thicken our skin...

Sanctuary

      Come my dear and lay your burdens down. I’ve been to the Sanctuary to the space beyond time to breath in the silence. Can you hear it calling you? The place of quiet stillness like the silhouette of the lone oak tree against the vast winter sky. Here you can rest away from the rush and struggle. Come find your place. Take refuge from the worry, the fear, and the cruel voices inside. Relinquish the driving force to do, to become to achieve some dazzling state of perfection. And too, the whispers, cries, and demands of all who beckon you rely on you and look to you for solace Release it all. Return to the speed of bone and blood. Be nourished and restored. Find your peace and your place. Discover the cosmos that dwells deep within Your own beautiful Heart.   –Joni...
