May I learn to love You… in all that love can be.
HOME: WHERE LOVE ENCOUNTERS…
|Mass during Orientation|
I heard a story
A story I have heard before
A story I have ignored
A story that is a part of other stories
A story that is a part of the whole.
I heard this story
Yet I heard it again…
And this time, something shifted.
A myth that goes beyond facts
The sacred flares forth…
Through the gift of this beautiful land.
|First day of school at CTU|
Emmet – This Truth we repeat
Adamah – Wonders in your eyes
Dominion – Blessings upon all
For we are made to be a part of…
The whole of life
If only I recognized…
The heart you hold
You have revealed without reserve. A part of you has been beckoning… To be a part of my heart.

How love sustains
With all that love is
To see you dancing on these verdant leaves
To breathe in your presence as Summer swings by
To hear you through the dawn chorus of new life
To feel your touch in the whistle of the wind
To behold you in this Season of Creation
For you have created all before me
Brought life to all so I can flourish
In my Mother's womb, you have held me tight
Nourish me with fruits from her soil
Mesmerize me with the shades of olive and amber
In the beauty of which Love utters…
That a part of me is now beckoning…
To save the Heart you let yourself fall for.
I have known you…
Now I am encountering you again
Your arms have opened,
Now I am stepping into what remains…
To reach the Heart that holds all its beats.
I am searching for hope
In the midst of so much pain
In resistance to such constant change
Yet listening is present
In its intense attentiveness to the “how”
If an uncomplicated witness is what Love invites,
May I learn to start with myself…
That I am moved to do my part
That relationships matter
That communion surpasses responsibility That kindness contributes to this cosmic energy…
