I’ve been contemplating January this Rising... From where I sit, January has prioritized warmth amongst my people, even if the catalyst for union was bitter, like this cold. I can recall how many pure discussions were formed—millions of words spoken, written & savored, in a society that’s typically more self indulgent than close-knit. I listened to existence in phrases. I grew volumes and spoke sonnets.
I realized how much grief, pain, hurt and disappointment I’ve experienced and caused others on my path during my ‘winter season’, where I met many hearts stationed on their souls journey. As I’ve rested the latter half of this month physically healing, it made sense that I have intentionally been in trance in my every encounter with others, sensing how, in our most ‘entitled’ physicality, we have justified our impoverished spiritual regard, leeching life from the living, returning little. Damn.
Then I paused to give thanks...for all of it. 💫
For sacred celebrations entangled with abrupt endings. For obscure challenge laced with potent truths. For distancing myself because I’m not into recruitment. For honoring growth alongside knowing. For seeing how needless hope is, in the quiet kind of knowing that arises without human focus. For planting my roots first so I can rise. For aligning with the sweet medicine of creation by listening to the heart—the vault of current unfolding.
January has been an energetic masterclass: a compass in expression and in taking care of the details that are paramount to motion and knowing that everything sensed can’t be said. To honor that preemptive wordsound power is the apex...theres simply not enough of us IN it, ya dig. I am reminded that the side eyes are always more common than the focus forward as they were once too a necessary catalyst in what is now becoming. #loveyall #thankyou #allyall
