Sabrina – a Sojourner’s Musings

we are just sojourners here on this earth

insight … December 15, 2007

new-name.jpgFrom the beginning
women have had a “sixth sense”
for finding the true nature of
a thing or person.
This quality reminds us
that we are connected
to a much larger
comprehension and
understanding than our own.
These insights, hunches
and gut feelings support us
in our quest for the truth.
Be open
and trusting of your inner sight.
If it feels right,
it most likely is right.
Look within.

integrity … December 14, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — bohemefem @ 6:43 am

Integrity takes long thoughtful walks. When she comes home, her pockets are full of stones and shells and feathers. She is the daughter of a weaver, and she has inherited her mother’s sense of texture and color, though she prefers the potter’s wheel to the loom. She makes ritual vessels for the local temple. It was through working with clay that integrity grew to understand that the body is also a vessel, beautiful, sturdy, empty, and sacred.

Integrity loves the intersection where sculpture becomes dance. She has a supple spine and lovely muscles. She knows sign language and has often worked as an interpreter. When she speaks with her hands, it is not in grand, dramatic gestures but in soft, subtle movements. Watching her hands dance, we hear stories that we have no words for.

Surrounding myself with white light …. December 10, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — bohemefem @ 10:54 pm

surroundedbywhitelight.jpgI am surrounding myself with white light.

I deflect all negative energy away from me.

I am a good person and I will not allow anyone to negate that.

Evil is as Evil does.

I want no part of it and I will not take part in it.

I will not allow anyone to drag me down into the depths of their hell.

 

Our death is our wedding with eternity …. December 5, 2007

Our death is our wedding with eternity.
What is the secret? “God is One.”
The sunlight splits when entering the windows of the house.
This multiplicity exists in the cluster of grapes;
It is not in the juice made from the grapes.
For he who is living in the Light of God,
The death of the carnal soul is a blessing.
Regarding him, say neither bad nor good,
For he is gone beyond the good and the bad.
Fix your eyes on God and do not talk about what is invisible,
So that he may place another look in your eyes.
It is in the vision of the physical eyes
That no invisible or secret thing exists.
But when the eye is turned toward the Light of God
What thing could remain hidden under such a Light?
Although all lights emanate from the Divine Light
Don’t call all these lights “the Light of God”;
It is the eternal light which is the Light of God,
The ephemeral light is an attribute of the body and the flesh.
…Oh God who gives the grace of vision!
The bird of vision is flying towards You with the wings of desire.

(Mystic Odes 833) Rumi

 

protection …

chrysalis2.jpgProtection is sensible and artistic.  In this country we know her as a craftswoman.  For her living she makes capes and weaves shawls.  She has also been a mid-wife.  She notices that some people insist on wearing her garments far into the hot season.  Others refuse to put a cloak on even when they are cold.

Protection has lived in many kinds of houses.  Always the walls are decorated with rugs and blankets from around the world.  She has studied ancient architecture and the habits of butterflies and spiders.  When the caterpillar is dying and the new butterfly is yet to be born, it constructs a chrysalis.  We also have this need.  However, many of us are too proud or have forgotten how to go inside.  Protection has learned from the butterflies how to make a chrysalis for the changing human heart.

night … November 27, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — bohemefem @ 11:30 pm

Night

We have another life between
sunset and sunrise.
The dark net of night falls upon
us allowing us to rest and
regenerate.
The dreaming subconscious
uses our imagination to teach
and enlighten.
Dreams can be the first stepping
stones to manifesting reality.
Rest in the field of all possibility.
Travel beyond space and time.
Sleep peacefully and
remember to
dream.
