"To follow the forbidden path
is to come face to face with what we most long for and what we most fear.
It is to unravel petal by petal, tear by tear, rage by rage
that which was our birthright all along ~
our intuitive pleasure-nature body,
that knows and feels and moves freely
as it creates its own unique choreographed dance...

"To follow the forbidden path
is to come face to face with what we most long for and what we most fear.
It is to unravel petal by petal, tear by tear, rage by rage
that which was our birthright all along ~
our intuitive pleasure-nature body,
that knows and feels and moves freely
as it creates its own unique choreographed dance...

What if to live is to embrace our death, to come face to face
with every minute separation in the great web of life?
What if to love is to cease seeking outside?
What if, instead, we drop deeply into our breath, our blood, our bones, our flesh and there,
in this sacred vessel of the body, meet an aching ecstasy
that reveals to us the beauty that breathes ~
the beauty that we crave,
the beauty we are?

I welcome you brother, sister.
I welcome you, familiar stranger,
to drink from your well, and remember… and remember
so that we can once again behold and care for that which we love the most ~
our life, our love, our freedom."
