Testimonial

“These are gloriously urgent wake-up poems. McNamara is a modern Zorba. She urges us to stop, to rest, to listen to the life pouring through and over us, to steep ourselves in the mystery that we are, ‘the rapture of being just this.’”

 

 

Roger Housden

Bestselling author of the Ten Poems series

“Brooke’s poems act to awaken Supreme Identity—the unity of You and Divine Sprit itself—releasing the everlasting core of your very Being and endless Becoming. This is what Brooke does for us, for which we can all be truly, deeply grateful.”   

 

 

Ken Wilber

Integral Meditation

“Tender, erotic and wise, this book is a trustworthy companion in the journey of becoming human."

 

Diane Musho Hamilton

Author of The Zen of You & Me

“Brooke McNamara’s words fall like raindrops filled with light--fresh, gentle, nourishing, and utterly authentic.  Always, they invite us to wake us up to the infinite beauty of BEING here and now, completely human and completely divine.”

 

 

Dorothy Hunt

Spiritual director of Moon Mountain Sangha, author of Only This!, Leaves from Moon Mountain, and Ending the Search: From Spiritual Ambition to the Heart of Awareness

"McNamara tricks marks on paper onto their feet so as to bring us to ours."

Stop

Stop. Stop working. Stop trying to stop working.
Stop trying. Stop being lazy. Stop searching for meaning.
Stop landing anywhere. Stop acting confused. Stop.

Stop locking up your mysteries. Let me in. Stop rearranging the surface features of your life. Stop thinking deep is deep. Stop thinking blood is red. Stop hoarding the blood-red wisdom unborn in you.

There’s got to be a better way. Do you love me? Stop loving me. Stop unloving me. Stop tearing me apart.
Stop with me. Let’s stop together. Six seconds.

Ready. Set. Stop.

Now let’s stop together forever,
and let the stopping go.
