I keep reminding myself to breathe
a little more deeply
to soften my belly
and open my heart
and trust in this moment
My mind wants to learn a new way
where relaxation is the norm.
My body remembers some ancient trauma
that my grandmother’s grandmother’s grandmother remembered
and it needs to be convinced
that it’s safe to relax.
This opening into being has no beginning and no end, only limitless bliss for those
brave enough to walk the path.
May I be blessed with courage to allow Spirit
to express its fullness through me,
serving love in open hearted devotion,
relaxed into the deepest breath of the cosmos.
