The Spiral

As we finish this phase of our journey into Wholeness, I remind myself that it's all a spiral, not a closure, but an opening into 'what's next!'

I continue with journies inner & outer - sorting clothes this AM, hanging some, putting some in the 'redistribute' pile! I try not to take to long with this part - have I worn it recently? Am I likely to? Do I still enjoy it . . . energy zappers or energy booster?

I think of which Spiritual Center to visit this AM - my daugher & I attend one with a great kids' program & strong voice for acceptance & tolerance in our community (large gay community, peace & justice focus, & empowering each other on our spiritual journey), the other is a smaller New Thought community - also filled with love & light!

I have so enjoyed this journey with all of you - plan to take part in the next book group, & so appreciated the 'boost' I've received from this phase of the spiral!!

Here's a bit of a song I wrote with Tuille, honoring the maple, cedar & black walnut trees that brought her into being! (for the seasons, I begin with the one we're in - truely winter now, but until Solstice, I'll sing 'autumn' 1st)

And my roots go down
Reaching for the water
And my branches soar
Shining, in the sun
And the seasons turn
Autumn into Winter
Spring into the Summer
My spirit dances on!

O Sada, it is good! May we be blessed

Lovely poem Dia :)

I have been reorganizing my living room closet, decluttering, sorting, recycling, putting in bags for donations this morning too. Synchronicity :)

It is definitely a spiral, not a closure. Thank you for the beautiful poem and all your many other contributions. Your life sounds so lovely.

Congratulations on meeting your challenge. I'm just getting started on my end. Today is day two!

I look forward to seeing what you do next.

Tonight I'm heading over to my friend's house for some supper and a SoulCollage session. I can't wait to see what is revealed in the cards.

Stay in touch.

Mmm, thank you for shifting the image of a circle closing into a spiral. There's beauty in that continuity.

Thank you for being on this journey, for bringing all the richness of you :)

A beautiful poem. I so agree, the book may have ended but our soul journey continues each and ever moment.

love, light and peace,

Excellent point, life is more of a spiral than a circle, I like that. And what a fantastic poem! I am trying to "warm up" to the coming winter solstice and poems like this help. Winter is not forever.

So glad you got to read Twilight and hope you can come up with a babysitter soon. The movie was great!

Sacred Suzie said...

Thanks for letting me know about that book. There are a couple of people ahead of me but I will give it a shot, thanks!

Oh I know, I waited months and months at my library for the book. I don't usually buy books AFTER I read them but this collection is so worth it.

I hope you get a copy soon, it's really best to read it before you see the movie but don't miss out seeing it on the big screen!

I'm excited for the next reading group! I'm so glad I'll be able to participate this time around.:)

Beautiful song--such strong imagery.

Thank you so much for visiting me! :) It's true, women are able to divine inspiration from all aspects of their lives. It's difficult not to when we are gloriously multifaceted beings! Hehe!

Many Blissings!~*
