Here is another endorsement for my upcoming book, Authentic Freedom – Claiming a Life of Contentment and Joy. This endorsement is from author and poet, Jay Ramsay. Following the endorsement is one of Jay’s poems. Thank you Jay!
Lauri Lumby’s timely book is radiant, a still point in a currently crazy transitional world, a well of crystal…reading it has literally given me shivers…it’s a homecoming for me personally, and for all Christians who wondered where the true undiluted teaching disappeared. A teaching grounded in theology, but totally free of repressive (and patriarchal) morality. She also writes with a vajra in her hand, with superb measured clarity…Authentic Freedom is as fiercely intelligent as it is uncompromisingly the thing itself. ‘You shall know the truth, and truth shall set you free’ – yes indeed. A truth we can vibrationally feel that tells us about the Mystery of Love and why it matters so much to us now.

I love you – sleep.
I love you to the core of your being, sleep.
Little one, sleep.
Listen to the wind.
The wind in the leaves, sleep.
Let the wind breathe, sleep.
Let these arms hold you.
The everlasting arms. Beneath.
And all that the air is, loves you
and all that the wind breathes
whispers to you…
Beloved, child of the spirit, sleep.
Beloved, queen of your heartbeat, sleep.
Beloved, from your head to feet –
Let your mind be sleep.
