Hello, my name is Maude (online anyway) i stumbled across this community and thought it sounded lovely and i've finally got round to joining.I've struggled with depression for a while and there's also been some family problems recently. I feel i've become quite disconnected, from people, from the world. I've become isolated as a result of my depression, and it can be really hard to break out of that. Very slowly, sometimes i think maybe i'm getting somewhere, or to something. I don't really know though. But I really like the premise of this community, the idea of connection and caring.
Magical Child

Once there was a child and he was free
Deep inside, he felt the laughter
The mirth and play of nature's glee
Beauty, love was all he'd see

He knew his power was the power of God
He was so sure, they considered him odd
This power of innocence, of compassion, of light
Threatened the priests and created a fight
In endless ways they sought to dismantle
This mysteroius force which they could not handle

In endless ways they tried to destroy
His simple trust, his boundless joy
His invincible armor was a shield of bliss
Nothing could touch it, no venom, no hiss

The child remained in a state of grace
He wasn't confined in time or place
In Technicolor dreams, he frolicked and played
While acting his part, in Eternity he stayed

Soothsayers came and fortunes were told
Some were vehement, others were bold
In denouncing this child, this perplexing creature
With the rest of the world he shared no feature
IS he real?He is so strange
His unpredictable nature knows no range
He puzzles us so, is he straight?
What's his destiny?What's his fate?

And while they whispered and conspired
Through endless rumors to get him tired
To kill his wonder, trample him near
Burn his courage, fuel his fear
The child remained just simpel, sincere

All he wanted was the mountain high
Color the clouds, paint the sky
Beyond these boundaries, he wanted to fly
In nature's scheme, never to die

Don't stop this child, he's the father of man
Don't cross his way, he's part of the plan
I am that child, but so are you
You've just forgotten, just lost the clue

Inside your heart sits a Seer
Between his thoughts, he can hear
A melody simple but wondrously clear
The music of life, so precious, so dear

If you could for one moment know
This spark of creation, this exquisite glow
You would come and dance with me
Kindle this fire so we could see
All the children of the Earth
Wave their magic and give new birth
To a world of freedom with no pain
A world of joy, much more sane

Deep inside, you know it's true
Just find that child, it's hiding in you.

- Michael Jackson

Maybe we could learn something from his life. His legacy.

8th-Jun-2009 11:18 am - Women's Moon Circle
wind meditation
Last night a magickal thing happened in Tempe, AZ. Three other women and I (that have all attended sweat lodges) were brought together under the full moon and had a spontaneous women's song circle. I've wanted to experience something like this for a while now but didn't want to force it. I figured that once my living situation was more stable, I would make efforts to put one together. But this one just happened. And it could not have gone better if we'd tried to plan it.

If you'd like to read the whole entry about this sisterhood strengthening circle, you can check it out here: Four Stones

Yay for united women!
