Remember
your own solace place
deep in your eyes
pure illumined silence

remember
to recognize your peace of mind
the source of light
even through the dark tunnels
sometimes crossing our lives

the soul only embraces events
received out of emanating light
no matter if it is clear to you
regardless of whether your thoughts about the world
speak truth or confusion to you
in your mind and memories

fighting your tears and grief
thinking you have hurt yourself
fearing you cannot forgive
afraid life is not trustworthy

I say to you
you are like
the most beautiful and gentle clay
forming and shaping
as the breakers brush against the cliff
always moving
changing
like a river that never ceases
you are one with the ocean's
altering horizons
where darkness meets light
and seasons shift
between our souls

don't be afraid
of what you do not understand
and cannot yet grasp
if you are lost
in the dark night of the soul
nothing has ever happened
that was not meant
even if your thoughts
tell you this is not so

we share the same intertwined heaven
we are carried and held in the same light
we are loved in the same light
light will not elude you

let every breath
fill your mind with peace
let your soul unfold courageously
in divine wisdom
and open itself for the beautiful things
that want to enter your life from the future

the greatest truth of love
the only thing that matters
is that you are alive

intertwined heaven - samma himmel - sofie jansson

This!

The beauty is still there, what is missing will come again.

Of that I am certain.

I love that, Daisy. Night is a good time to let go of the past and prepare for better days ahead.

I arise today
Through a mighty strength:

God's power to guide me,
God's might to uphold me,
God's eyes to watch over me;
God's ear to hear me,
God's word to give me speech,
God's hand to guard me,
God's way to lie before me,
God's shield to shelter me,
God's host to secure me.

Thinking of you too, Zipperman!

The dream of my life is to lie down by a slow river
and stare at the light in the trees - to learn something
by being nothing

Me too, it's so serene. xx

"No matter what you do, someone won’t be pleased. Someone will think your
choices are wrong. And someone will tell you what should do instead. No
matter which path you take, someone will seem to be doing better. Someone
will have more than you. And someone else’s life may look more impressive on
paper. If you’re being true to yourself, none of that will matter because you’ll
have something more satisfying than approval and the illusion of “success”: a
life that feels right for you, based on your own wants, needs, values, and
priorities."
