“It’s good to do uncomfortable things. It’s weight training for life.” ~ Anne Lamott
Come in, into the quiet center.
Sit in the darkness, the fear, the fucked-up reality of humanity.
Embrace her. In you. Then, welcome the light of stars in the dark night
and the rise of the sun in early morning. Let her shine on you and in you.
Feel her warmth on your skin. Lift your chin, your arms, your everything to the vast and changing sky.
Let her drama dazzle you. Walk in nature. Study the sway of tree and leaves waving in the wind.
You don’t have to save the world, but someone must.
Traveler from dark to light and all the layers in between, why not you?
Save her with poetry and kindness. No need to be famous.
Be you. Invite deep solace. Begin by going in.
Go in while there’s time.
Go into your body. Connect with your soul.
Get out of your mind and the mayhem.
Stay on your mat.
In your chair.
Drop into your heart and be the peace you’ve been praying for.
