Dear human…

Timing

When to flow? When to pause? When to sit still and listen? Scriptures talk about dharma and cause, but sometimes it’s not that obvious. When to act? When to rebel? When to observe and go inwards? Monks meditate whilst activists shout, Which way best serves the world, no-one seems to know without a doubt. When…

Forgiveness

Sometimes you have to lose yourself…

Sometimes… You have to lose yourself to find yourself again. You have to let him go, to fall in love all over again.

I still feel your sense on me, as my senses slowly ease into a gentle yoga flow. Waking up in agitating heart pain with no words to explain, I still remembered your solid body on me. Wanting to cry in despair, I still had to smile as I recalled the un-asked for pleasure your strong thrusts created…
