noting that during times of duress,
the most “me” me steps forward, not
the “person” me, the instinctual me.
The me that’s balanced and clear.

The one who cannot be mistaken.

i’ve kept her away, because
when i am most “me” the people disappear…
it gets silent and lonely.

Or is that inner peace, disguised as an island?

Today i have a new vision for that
space that’s created, when I speak my truth –

Today i don’t worry about being heard,
or being overheard, and misunderstood.

Today i listen so closely to that voice
in my heart, and I move with its movements,
and I sway with its sways,
and I dance with its steps…

if anything is not on its agenda,
you won’t hear from me.
the drummer inside, holds the keys to my passage

it is that drummer inside who is my guide.

  1. I love your slogan above the comment box. I rise above in a crisis also as do you. A strange thing is one of my spiritual guides when he makes a spiritual appearance in my essence is he also beats a drum. You are wise to listen to the whisper of the drum. Be well and stay smiling. I was wondering if you are writing an article for Barbara challenge this year on ascension and awakening?

    1. Thank you and thank you!

      Interesting about your guide’s “signature” style.

      Re: Barbara’s challenge: I’m working on it? Potentially? My priority is my health, my family, my patients in the clinic, school work and tests and signing up for everything there that I need to do to sign up. Writing is a priority for me, but it’s in 3rd place, followed by art making when I can and music is begging my attention as well. What is ascension and awakening? I don’t know, but I’d like to follow up on what I started if it works into my existing set of commitments and responsibilities, and if the spirit moves me.

      1. For Barbara’s Challenge is does not have to be a big article. Ascension and awakening is explained in the following link

        My guide is a tall broad shouldered american native. He came to me when I was developing as a medium. He has llong hair with a bandana so I am guessing from the past and crossed over. The drum is in my chest near my heart. At first it was unerving and now it is a tempo to follow for peace.

    1. Thank you, Brad ~ So am I. I enjoy the freedom of learning, and changing, and developing with it. ❤ My "place" that I am in, fluctuates. It's a dynamic "good" or at least, it's something I'm invested in. Wishing you a beautiful day, and I appreciate you making the space and taking the time to comment.

  2. Ah I love this! You so exactly describe the feeling like an island when we are closest to our most authentic self, truly leaning and listening in. I relate to dilemma of the joy of inner peace yet the grief of being misunderstood or not seen for what I am. Once I let go of that need to be seen and understood it is almost magical to be enjoying that inner voice.

  3. This is perfect. Stepping back into me – focusing on my own space for a time – does not feel lonely anymore. Maybe it never did and I just thought it was supposed to. It is peace. Deep peace. Thank you for clarifying this.

    1. It’s amazing how we can experience a new depth within that ‘inner ‘ that we can then bring forward and share, and when we step back into the space of our taproot, our “own space,” we may find that it’s already grown in strength and dimension – it may feel lonely because it’s slightly unfamiliar until we upgrade along with it, our awareness catches up. This is new to me….still forming words …
      Thank you ☺️

  4. Loved this Ka..
    “Today i don’t worry about being heard,
    or being overheard, and misunderstood.
    Today i listen so closely to that voice…… ”

    May you continue to listen and may you continually be guided, ❤

Please drop me a petal from your beautiful self and let me know that you visited :)
