If we will fully allow life’s less than comfortable to touch us—
ceasing avoiding, numbing…
Halting our disconnecting, our distracting;
reaching away from our center.
And, instead let them be—
softening, allowing space
for them to move through
the body, the mind and the mood.
Neither grasping nor shoving,
dropping our hunger to control.
If we wil have faith—
that it will pass
as it has each time before.
If we will take the chance of trusting—
that in allowing,
we do not become it;
we are not defined by it
yet, from it—we can be transformed.
In truly felt emotion’s presence
we are moved to integrative action
soaking in the lessons and opportunities
arising from each experience.
Cracking to the core of our truest—and highest being;
rejoining the deepest roots of the self
from which we so often stray.
Grounding in strength;
discovering the rewards of that small—yet mighty courage,
