Changing course in the middle of the present moment can be challenging. 
When the end's in sync with the ancient past, behaviors collide and they fulfill their desired purpose. Much of time’s progress is linked by a universe of art, poetry, and movement. 

Strength of darkness stains the moonstone under the midnight. Spells chanted long ago come to pass. The whispering words are alive in her tender voice. Her passion is pure, genuine and alive. The scent of sage and tobacco fills the air. The winds sweep through my mind and awaken my senses. I am safe. I am guided. She is confident. I am attentive and amazed. I am protected.

This ceremony will stay with me for the rest of my years. Emotions and feelings of sensation are still there struggling with the darkness. Tensions come and go like the rise and fall of my chest. Waves of the tide pass in and out on the sands of time. 

Timeless beauty is as far as the mind can see. Geometric patterns of pastel colors float in the air. Lights are outlined in the brilliance of color. My vision is shadowed by two dimensions. Front is back and back is far. 

Cobwebs whisper to my mind. The north wind settles my soul. Time stood still and vanished from the darkness. Minutes pass into heaven as I reach out to the angels.

Resting safely on the clouds of tomorrow confidence fills my heart when I know no fear. Passage through to the other side is now complete. Happiness and amazement are all around. Surrender and vulnerability are balanced with hope and determination. Love fulfilled is the sentiment of the moment. 

Nothing is spoken. 
Nothing is taken. 
The commitment I make is the sentiment I need. 
Take my hand as we walk together. 
We'll conquer the next wave in the eye of the morning.
