Creating the World
Our meeting creates light,
nourishing our souls.
Reaching deep into our roots,
we find our personal truths.
Our conversations flow like water,
sharing the essence of who we are.
Encouraging each other in our growth,
we sustain each other.
Our curiosity anchors us.
Trusting the direction of our hearts,
exploring infinite possibilities,
we relish in the mystery.
Our energy is power.
Bringing our brilliance to life,
shaping our ideas,
we celebrate our discoveries
Kindred spirits on a journey,
we share a belief
that we can create the world
as we want it to be.
I wrote this poem about Blair and me. We’re neighbors and have been friends for somewhere on the other side of 10 years. We connected back then, just after I’d gone through Radical Leadership, and she’d completed training in law of attraction. There was something that pulled us together, and it was powerful. Still is.
During our decade of friendship, almost every month we’ve made time to share lunch together, usually at a little Thai restaurant in Iowa City. We’ve created amazing possibility at one of the little brown tables, always decorated with a single flower poised in a little vase, usually the table tucked in the corner. Our lunch dates are like a sanctuary to me. I feel safe to open to my fears. I feel held and supported. I feel opened and alive. I open to dreaming and creating my life as I want it to be. What a gift.
