Presence to Presence

by Elektra Porzel & Ann Byrne

In our part of earth, spring has arrived just as winter is moving into the southern hemisphere.  Spring brings us all present to the awakening of life in plants and animals.  We are energized and joyful.  My eyes delight in the color of the daffodils and tulips in my front yard and in the blossoms forming on the trees.  The warm breezes relieve the constrictions of winter cold on our bodies.  It is time that we open to the flow of life within us.  The more we are present to the flow, the more light and love enters our days.  I hope that the awakening of this time fills your cells and your soul.

Ann Byrne of Ireland sent the following out on Easter and I wanted to share it into our shared field.

Abu – be ‘up’ in Irish— so ‘Up the Resurrection’  (with just maybe a hint of the irish rebel in there with a glint in her eye – lol ) 

presence to presence…. 

Stillness reigns as the rising Sun continues to move across the heavens – shining on the quiet ocean like dancing diamonds. There is no bleating now, all lambs be with their mothers -content – Birdsong rings and even the cuckoo has come to the table, trees are growing so fast you can see the changes unfolding as new life makes its claim. The apparently dead tree of November is overflowing with blossoms…The eternal is always dancing in and out of clay form through intimacy unlocking the layers to reveal itself  

May eternity dance in your form the joy of celebrating the alchemy of love that plays- you – formed you- woken you – and perhaps at times shaken you all the way through –  No matter what the tradition you have allowed LOVE  to shape you…. – blessings be.  from Eire – and this heart 

Last she shared this poem from Rumi

The breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you

Don’t go back to sleep!

You must ask for what you really want

Don’t go back to sleep!

People are going back and forth

Across the doorsill where the two worlds touch,

The door is round and open,

Don’t go back to sleep!
