Mother’s Mystery [Poem]

This mother’s ancient mystery
We drink this blood of the Earth
we sit in this holy fire
we move with the changing times
we lift our heart from desire
We step into the next dimension
Awake and filled with love
While resting deeply in the mystery
We trust the Earth will heal

Our hearts and our relations

For she is our holy mother
Telling her children one and another
Is your family is your kind
For when you take from me in this way
I know there is no other way
The mystery has turned on me
And asked me to step away
Look into my eyes my sister
Look into my eyes my brother
I am the holy fire that burns in your own heart
For what you feel I feel
For what you seek I give
For what you give me
I give you
And for what you take
I don’t ask
So now my brothers and sisters
Rest back in your heart knowing
That this mother’s ancient mystery
Is speaking through your blood
This luminous knowing
This healing heart, some forgiveness
and a lot more letting go
This moving and trepidation
This breathless stillness
In it I find my living
It gives the life back to me
For the Earth’s holy pulse
Moves and breaths us in this way.
While we try to figure out
With our minds this happening
We are shown furthermore
The depth of this Love
This ancient Love of the Earth
And her healing ways
That few can grasp and understand
And fewer know the real way
For to be sitting with this blood
You must know your holy heart
In a sacred way of the grandmother
that gives her life all back
To the Earth that never asks
For anything in return
You my brother are my friend
And I am your Holy name.
