A Bridge to Presence

A ping from the soul
the spirit hears,
resonance within
the walls of experience.

Truly hearing, beyond
feigned listening
we come together;
a reverberating oneness
in the oneness of vibration.

In the 20/20 of resonance,
sightful clarity,
a resonant moment
becomes a hologram
of all that is true.

To resonate is to flow
the sound of peace
in the middle we know.

Living each question,
holding with care,
welcoming each paradox,
I let go into the flow.

Words

Words,
one way written;
yet spoken, a tact different.
But spoken, written
together the words flow,
verses forming, meaning calling.

Words form, aided
by a holding,
by a releasing,
gifting the paradox
in letting go.

In the form itself
fashioned they are, by
experience, by
love; given first
to me, so I now
may give to you.

Words,
calling for more,
more to serve,
to love, more,
in this work
calling me out.

In this work
are words;
from me, for you,
from you, for me.

In this work
is voice;
my voice, your voice,
together we answer.

–J. Brunson

Oft revealed, a return
to where you began.

Through years unfolding
a trail hacked
hard work a blade.

Beneath each step
a path unfolding.

Tested, fired, purified
confirmed and worn.

Emerging into a clearing
intensity of flow you feel
from the course, schooled to hear
generously opened by what you see.

In this moment, now
you discover yourself.

On one side, steady
on the other, ruffled
and thus, equipped.

From instructor
through instruction
in the now you release
the poetry of presence.

From teaching you came
to learning you return.

–J.Brunson

Seemingly strange, yes indeed
in the two between, you lead.

Tense it will often feel
the pressure of such place.
Yet it is very real
your leadership in such space.

And space is what you give
from your trueness fitted.
And in this space we live
our own reality committed.

From me, expect only my best
in the swirl of trust, leave the rest.

Gathering
together we see with delight
Giving
together we stand in light
Growing
together we release what is right.

So open us to a creative presence.
And what you’ve diligently gathered
gives us freedom in our essence,
growing us in what has surely mattered.

The voice to which I so often refer is discernible in what we say, but rarely audible.

Contemplate the silence of your Voice:
1) Be still in the flow.
2) Listen for the call.
3) Feel what you hear.

As of late, I have been learning to open and feel what I hear in the flow. Each experience is processed in my body. This is a new level of conscious awareness for me. Learning to practice this physicality in balance with emotional, mental, and spiritual realms is, I’m learning, very important to being with any experience.

I recently observed this balance when being with my mom for three days as she acclimated to a care and rehab facility. In the movement of these experiences−the paradoxical flow−I am moving closer to who I really am. This has been a lifelong process; and life ain’t over yet!

The you intended from the beginning is real and present in, and around, you … now. I completely understand it may not feel like that at the moment. I only ask that you stand in the middle, reach out, and feel the essence of you−meant purposefully from the source.
