You Matter, Spirit Cares (audio 4:48)

Birth of Venus, 1863, Alexandre Cabanel

Spirit doesn’t care if you are weary or unsure
If the time is inconvenient
If you harbor niggling fears or apprehension
If you have one single lingering doubt
of near-paralyzing proportion,
So many things you believe need your rapt attention
right here right now
(But, what about this and that and the other?)
Spirit doesn’t care.

Spirit speaks when you are ready to listen
When you allow the edges of your resistance to soften,
When you truly embody what you say
and think and feel and do,
When you have laid down your sword and your shield,
Recognizing there is no longer anything to fear
in the face of love’s holy power

No matter how long that awareness
has lain dormant or denied, 
Spirit tends the seeds now germinative
in your sacred belly
Spirit whispers in your ear and dances through
the chambers of your heart
Trilling a merry tune that reverberates
through your every cell

Time and trepidation matter not to Spirit
There is work to be done
and your number has been called,
The seeming whims of Spirit
breathe life into your desires
and turn the inward out
And before you know it,
you have gathered up all you hold precious
and released ancient ballast
And you are on your way.

Spirit doesn’t care if fully living your life
is seen as rejection by others
She knows nothing of guilt or shame or regret
The clocks and schedules you cling to?
Inconsequential contrivances!
Spirit cares that you are itching and trembling
and ready and wild with desire –

She cares that you chose to remember
all you forgot you once knew
That you pulled back the veil
and peeled away the blinders
band-aiding the scrapes upon your soul,
You have cultivated your faith and trust
within a garden strewn with stones
Watered the earth with your tears,
Placed your heart on the ground in front of you
and prepared for the party

Spirit doesn’t care if you don’t know the answers
As long as you continue to consider the questions –
Every butterfly in your stomach aches to be kissed
Every small step is now yours for the taking

Spirit knows your every dream, your every cry
for becoming and belonging
She cares that your every need
is met with lavish abundance,
That you find your true and unalterable family
That you are wrapped in the arms
of a loving, generous Universe ~

Spirit cares that you are honored
for exactly who you are and always have been
For being willing, being strong, being vulnerable,
being relentlessly devoted to your own
Divine wisdom

Spirit loves you beyond the reaches of your imagination
Cares for your every scar and smile
and speaks to you now
in Love’s universal language
Awaken, receive, expand, and know the truth:

You matter,
Spirit cares.
