Not every opportunity should be realized,
Not every relationship should work,
Trying to force it creates a tension,
Ultimately leading to an unhealthy dynamic,
If it’s meant to work, it shouldn’t feel like work,
If it’s worth it, you’ll feel worth it,
Don’t settle for being treated less than you deserve.
Push against the visitor,
It’s constant appearance unwelcome,
Returning in expected moments,
Greet it and know that it will leave,
Each visit dismisses it again,
Don’t give the expected reaction,
Lessen the connection with the unwanted,
Know that it will drift away.
The curtain is rich and deep,
Hiding the gears and works behind.
The players on stage taking action,
Flowing for love, loss, triumph and tragedy.
All given meaning by the stage,
Never knowing the audience watching.
The wall between a veil of exploration,
Creating space that the curtain takes.
Knowing that the curtain will fall,
Gives the players reason to be,
To create light before the dark.
My energy was changed by what happened,
I was affected in a way I didn’t understand,
Hurt and changed in a way I couldn’t process.
I am strong now to see it through,
I accept what is and what was,
I can transcend this effect to heal myself.
The cycle has been observed,
The repetitions of the trauma recognized,
The shadow self is angry and hurt no more.
The true self has recognized the memories,
Trapped beneath the surface of my reality,
I am what will be and become what is.
It’s never going to be perfect,
It’s not going to all make sense at once,
It drags, it pulls,
The habit of what was.
Free to connect with the energy beyond,
Carrying it into the world around,
A rainbow of emotion and sensation,
Pain is just a teacher.
Love what is possible,
Delight in what’s real,
Accept through humility,
Shine with pride.
they have a momentum
good ones build to great things
bad ones lead to strife
select the best ones for a good life
Boom, crack, hiss …
the surface is washed
branches are broken
pathways are cleared
connections are destroyed
new growth blossoms afterwards .
I am beautiful
I am kind
I am a sensual creature
I deserve love
say it again, and out loud
soft, slow, subtle
The pain drains away
sense is absent
sensation is everywhere
sometimes it is too much
It all will end, with faith
Moments of rest and recovery arise,
They find us in moments of confusion.
Drifting through life can be missed,
Is the aim is to flow, first we must let go.
There cannot be creation without destruction,
A willingness to yang is needed to yin,
The sweeter the yin, the deeper the yang.
When they go high, we go low to find our way through.
There is a beautiful wisdom in understanding our paths and staying on them. We are built to want things, to yearn for what we do not have so that we find ourselves in-between that which is and could be.
Being aware of not having what we want gives us stability, noticing what we need to get what we want gives us wisdom and feeling discomfort with not having what we want gives us the energy to go get it.
