Sitting in meditation, troubling words
emerge to flap frantic, abrupt small birds
batter my house’s hard ceiling, absurd
persistent they break a hole in the roof
of my consciousness, so that a shaft of
light is allowed to enter now. As proof
of this place carved outside of time and space
I construct an altar, feel now the grace
in my very physical room, the base
of my alchemical transmutation.
Each difficulty offered, creation
gift holy among the crystals stationed:
rose quartz love, deep magnetic pull of eight
hematite stones, a geode carved, the weight
of serpentine, these mysteries a gate
the chance to break the matrix, open me
beyond the confines of controlled mind, see
channeled from outside of my knowing, we
find solutions are instant and easy
unhindered by beliefs, I sit in peace
each troubling thought released to spirit’s breeze.
Inspired in this morning’s meditation to reflect that the solutions to what is facing us are not to be found in the mindset that created them. Calm and centered, the light inspires.
