REDEEMING TRUTH by Daya Dhara Devi Dasi

We are all searching for our truth…

My personal journey has led me to many different religions and philosophies. What I have come to find is that no matter the particular idea, the soul, the essence that we all are, is the Truth. I believe that one of the main ways we get side tracked in this world is by trying to perfect the outer but doing little for the inner. So as I look at this body that God has given me, I just wonder where was I before it existed and where will I be after it dies? Will I be redeemed? Will I continue to just move forward searching or have I found all that I am looking for? What’s in store for me? 

Redeeming Truth 
by Daya Dhara Devi Dasi

It is just me as I look into my reflection.

A soul who has gone in between galaxies, 
seeking my redemption. 

But when am I truly redeemed? 

The moment I say that prayer or 
pretend to surrender? 

Conditioning, getting dirty, and not understanding why.

But here I am as I stare back at a body that is not mine. 

Let’s get this straight;
This is not me! 
This is not you! 
This is not us! 

They have made us believe in everything we are not,
when can we wake up to their sly plot?

Shake up the system! 

Tell them what matters! 

“The Soul! The Soul! The Soul!” 

Speak it loud and never be proud as we walk towards our true position.

A servant to all as this is our shared mission. 

Daya Dhara Devi Dasi: I am a 26-year old aspiring spiritual activist. I have been living abroad for the last 3 years between S. America, India and now Mexico. I am currently a private English tutor in Mexico City. I am extremely passionate about women being able to create through the different circumstances life throws at them. Taking pain, happiness, etc. to write a poem, sing a song, love unconditionally through these actions. I have currently ventured in a beautiful project with spiritual women via the web called The Lost Girls. It is open to anyone, if you are interested! And here is my personal blog if you would like to see more of my work.

MY HEART SEEPS by Edith Lazenby

Courage is not only facing fear, but also looking past fear, to see what lies it tells and truths it saves...
Sometimes I sit at a computer in trepidation. The house trembles and I wonder what I will find. 
Truth is not a fact or a feeling. It may rest on love’s heart and walk with integrity. It may stand beyond humanity in ways we can only imagine. Truth can be solid as earth and fickle as wind. But a wind can know stillness and the earth can crack wide open.
Tonight I found a stillness in a crack and managed to balance there...


My Heart Seeps
by Edith Lazenby
I cannot hold on And I cannot let go. I walk a path I don’t know. I feel moonlight But cannot see Its orb midst The cloudy cold. My hands tremble. My eyes tear. My toes wriggle To grasp earth. I want to stand Tall in the light Yet fear shadows all. Inside I crumble Under the weight I cannot shoulder.

FOR THE SISTERS by Tammy T. Stone

These days, I’m finding it difficult – along with many, many others - not to feel disheartened...
I'm disheartened by the feeling that chaos has descended upon us, at the negativity and fear, the anger and reactivity, the violent spirit of animosity characterizing the times. It’s hard not to give in to the feelings of helplessness and hopelessness, even as we cling to the strong conviction that it is our positivity and our love that will prevail.
Every crevice of my heart goes out to the suffering (and we are all suffering when one of us suffers), and my heart aches for the untold numbers of women around the world who are immediately and devastatingly affected by recent decisions to cut funding to organizations vital to their health and wellbeing, a movement that horrifyingly undermines women’s sovereignty over their own bodies. Words do not do the feeling justice.
It feels to me that the earth itself is overturning, that our fragile grasp of what is right and true, of our incredibl…

IMAGINE A WOMAN by Patricia Lynn Reilly

This poem invites you to look upon yourself with loving kindness…
Gazing at your own true reflection, you will discover that everything you have longed for “out there” is already within you! I invite you to love your creativity fiercely. Faithfully plant seeds, allowing under-the-ground dormant seasons, nurturing your creative garden with love and gratitude. In the fullness of time, the green growing things thrust forth from the ground. It's a faithful, trustworthy process. AND it takes time and patience.  Blessed is the fruit of your creative womb! I invite you to trust your vision of the world and express it. With wonder and delight, paint a picture, create a dance, write a book, and make up a song. To give expression to your creative impulses is as natural as your breathing. Create in your own language, imagery, and movement. Follow no script. Do not be limited by the customary way things have been expressed. Your creative intuition is original. Gather all of life into your inner c…
