How can I embrace
The unfolding of myself to Myself?
How do I remember and honor the Mystery that I am?
A fearless, creative power explodes in me—
Dreams! Shapes! Colors! Sounds!
Demanding—trust of the Holy Self
Echoes of terror and hopelessness rush in—
Tell Me! Tell Me!
Where am I trustworthy? Where am I honest?
Where am I beautiful? Where am I powerful?
Where am I whole?
Shape Changer! Sing!
Hum into the new life!
Shape Changer! Listen!
Hear the Spirits in the winds of change
Shape Changer! Weep!
Moisten the fountains of ancient memory
Shape Changer! Dance!
Move to the rhythms of your Mythic Soul!
