RITE OF PASSAGE

My life continues to take on a new definition since my father's passing. When people ask me how I feel, I can only say that what I've experienced parallels giving birth...a powerful, amazing rite of passage that changes one's life immeasurably.

In list form, here are a few things I've experienced in the past three weeks....

~a deeper understanding of the amazing individual my father was....

~a new definition of "normal"--Papa just lives with me in another form now...

~huge gratitude for my life, my family, my friends...

~a heightened appreciation of my roots, of the importance of calling family together...

~a more defined understanding of surrender, of letting go in all aspects of my life...

~a lightness of heart...a new melody to my laughter....

~a deeper friendship with silence

~clarity in terms of things I want to do for myself and for others...

~psychic acuity and connections...

~a tangible understanding of being on the receiving end of prayer...

~blessing after blessing after blessing from all over the planet...

~a renewed comittment to making all my actions based in love, in the best interest of all...

~a renewed comittment to "do no harm" in every aspect of my life...
~ a lot, a lot of LOVE ...
I am so, so grateful for my life and my many blessings.....

Namasté......T.
