waiting

Standard

Taking this new format for a test post now.

I want to christen it with some words that really moved me this week.

I follow this woman on Facebook who goes by Dreamwork with Toko-Pa.  She truly has amazing insights and food for thought.

Her website is also here Toko-Pa.

This week she shared this which struck a chord so deeply in me I’ve been thinking about it and revisiting it ever since.

I hope you get something out of it too.

There is a good kind of waiting
which trusts the agents of fermentation.
There is a waiting
which knows that in pulling away
one can more wholly return.
There is the waiting
which prepares oneself,
which anoints and adorns
and makes oneself plump
with readiness for love’s return.
There is a good kind of waiting
which doesn’t put oneself on hold
but rather adds layers to the grandness
of one’s being worthy.
This sweet waiting
for one’s fruits to ripen
doesn’t stumble over itself
to be the first to give
but waits for the giving
to issue at its own graceful pace.

Please find a way to connect with this healer.  I’m grateful she’s sharing her insights so generously.

  1. I thnk I have waited nearly five years to hear (read) this. Thank you for sharing it today when I can truly appreciate it. I plan to save and revisit it often and will go check the site now.

    Worthy. That’s a word I thought about earlier this week. It came to mind, as many things do, after a conversation. One’s being.

    Love Toko-Pa FB … I don’t have a word for what I felt looking at her album of pictures but it’s something like seeing the Northern Lights for the first time. So glad you shared the inspiration ❤ xxoo
