Silence Thickens

by Julie on February 22, 2012 · 9 comments

I sit in silence, open, waiting, still

I whisper, Yes.

 

Love comes.

Love reveals itself,

Offers itself, over and over.

Waves of love

Crashing onto the shoreline of my heart.

 

The world is not as I think it is.

This ocean of love,

infinitely vast and deep

calls me to its shoreline

and asks me to enter in.

 

I don’t know what to do with this much love,

Except be still and receive.

Tears fall.

Body fills.

Silence thickens and stills.

 

I tremble as love finds its way into me.

It makes its way along the edges I’ve used to define myself,

And in its wake the edges fray and soften.

Lines blur.

Definition grows watery.

 

All dissolves.

Blissful…………… love is………………… everything.

I become more and more convinced of this with each passing day.

Love to you, Julie ~

Sitting here
Receiving love
Answering a call from within
Saying yes
Over and over
Breathing from my belly
Relief and joy
All at once
Heals my tired body
Now awake
And full of life
Abundance is all around

It always was
It always is
And always will be, too
