Cry

The world is crying

Tears flow endlessly

Lost

I can’t go out, I cry

I reach out at night, for that dream

The dream has gone

For now

I pick myself up

Why is the image reflecting fear

I must change the channel

Don’t believe the chaos

Believe in hope

Believe in truth

Believe in kindness

Believe that light will defeat darkness

I must

We must

Believe in this brave new world of hope

I awake, heart beating rapidly
Although I am not physically home
My soul is yours
Our carefree, funny and free spirit is who we are
Our kangaroos and koalas
Images of childhood realities of comfort
I awake to a reality that my home is at war
The monster is real
Why didn’t you listen?
Climate change is real, they told you

Girls, Girls, Girls

My Balinese Inspirational Women friends.

Repost from  2016.

Sharon Karyasa

Sometimes we just like to dress up. Choose the perfect frock, shoes, Jewelry and handbag. Sometimes we like to go to the salon, to be fussed over, nails, make up, hair, fluffing, grooming.

We greet each other like swans. We are elegant, gushing, air kissing, laughing. The warmth is genuine, the reality is sparkling. We eat, we drink, we dance, we laugh at nonsensical trivialities.girlsgirlsgirls

We are not airheads, we are business women, we embrace our feminine with authority. We are girls, girls, girls.

White noise

Where can we go to loose the signal

Why do we feel compelled to stay connected

Who can we trust

What’s that noise I keep hearing

Wired to an electronic rhetoric

Why do we hate, confusion, contradiction

Why can’t we trust

Where is Community

Where is humanity, equality

Where is kindness, acceptance

Where is LOVE thy neighbor

White noise

We must have faith, beyond, our eternal light, break free

Vibrations

I feel the vibration shifting tremendously

Here in my spiritual Bali the Gods are sending me signs

I am searching my soul

My clarity is murky

The black and white is seeping into grey

sangeh

Who can we trust ?

Now is the time, the biggest challenge we must face

Dark days approach

Asking for faith

My heart is aching for the world, for the people, for the sadness

Dig deep and breathe

Dig deep

We must believe

Vibrations

Reflection

Some days we want to swing, laugh, embrace natures beauty and forget.

Some days the Universe sends messages of warnings that all is not as perfect as it seems in an idyllic illusion.

Do we keep swinging or do we take a leap?

Now is the time to Unite in love, it IS possible, nature is yearning for a brave new world.
