How long does it take to become a stranger to each other?
How long for the heart
To pause, shrink back, retreat?
Oh my Love
Let us welcome
Let us enter
The circle of our deepest fear
Let it become
Let fingers entwine
Let us not shrink back
Whakapapa: origins are in a ‘speaking’ from the Self: ‘how long does it take to become a stranger to each other: for the heart to pause, shrink back, retreat’ (25/1/13). Also influenced by a ‘saying’ from the Self: ‘Sounds like your minuses outweigh your steel.’ (23/1/13) In the healing traditions ‘venom’ (or poison), if used correctly, has powerful curative qualities. The ‘bite of risk’ heals.
What we fear most is often what we desire most: the desire to be truly ‘seen’ and passionately loved, just as we are.
There is a fierce & tender fire in such loving.
