This month's Soul Story & poem
And we sing
As we sew
Into the fabric
Of our dream
“But when I return to the simple arts in life, the simple ways of being in my environment, the simplest ways of being in relationship with my body - I return to my deep self. I no longer question my rootlessness, my mental health, my inability to be a participant in the world… I just am, and I’m profoundly whole because of it.”
This spoke to me on such a deep level, when I return to the simple arts, surrender my thoughts and worries, I feel like I am a puzzle that has been put back together. In quiet solitude, I am able fill the well that is depleted from all of the external distractions. Thank you as always, for your words, your voice and for sharing your love with this community. You are nourishment for my soul. 💗
Sez ... You articulated the very words that I have been seeking in my own story. Thank you for your beautiful poetry and meditations. They always speak to me on such a personal, soul level. Keep up the beautiful work.
I found you through insight timer and just subscribed here as well. You are a gift to humanity and I am grateful to have your words as guidance. ❤️
Sez, you have an incredible gift to craft such a beautiful and heartfelt message! It is just what I need! I have listened multiple times to try and absorb its essence. ❤️🌺
Good morning dear Sez and community 🌞 As always, not just the soulful wisdom of your words, but also the gift of your gentle voice, sweep through my mind like a paintbrush as I listen. I’m returned to the simplicity of just being, quietly observing the sweet and earthy imagery of my own inner nature being illuminated in colorful brushstrokes.
“But when I return to the simplest art in life...” This was a call to action (again) for me. For a child who was never allowed to “just be” who I was, and who lived in a constant state of “self-modification” and “pleasing” for fear of abandonment, I have found it is the golden key to the place where my true peace and wholeness reside, and I forget it’s just there.
This quote, “Spiritual and emotional recovery are possible because the human brain is a living organ that we can transform by making new choices and being in non-shaming recovery-based environments.
Christopher Dines”, is a powerful affirmation for me that my choice to create a “shame-free environment” for myself, by putting distance between myself and the the source, is the right choice for me, no matter the intruding voices of well-meaning others with all their “shoulds”, and for as long as is needed to solidify the new neural pathways I’m forging.
Thank you, dear Sez 🌺
Hello Sez and community... My morning routine, especially now when the early hours in the desert are still cool is to sit in my backyard and listen to the migratory birds. I’ve set out a couple of feeders and bird bath and they seem to enjoy the space.
I also replay Monday’s reflection from you as the daily digestion always provides something meaningful.
As always, this week’s recording has enriched my spirit and carried my through my days.
I too have felt that grain being rubbed by external or old ghost forces that I allow in. It slips through the cracks of my unhealed nature. What your words and reflections have allowed me to do is to see the “I” of “me” differently, lovingly, and to direct energy toward compassion and surrender.
Each day for me is a practice to sit (even for a few minutes at a time) in simplicity, remind myself that my thoughts are not my identity, and to expand my drinking in of beauty- around me and within me.
Virtual hugs to you Sez... blessings and light shine upon you, my friend. ✨🏻🤗
Wonderful guide and refreshingly clear
