Nothing to Forgive

Standard

This is healing:
It goes in spirals,
rarely in a straight line,
takes steps, hops and leaps,
sometimes goes so slowly it aches,
wondering how long
it will feel this way,
wanting it to change,
wanting to be different,
asking for patience
when thoughts stay the same
day after day after day.
Hoping for little changes,
giving thanks for what is here,
giving thanks for love, for life.
This is courage:
taking one more breath
when you question
the reason for your being here,
and when nothing seems
good enough to keep you here,
when you want to get away from yourself,
from everything,
when you want to escape
everything that ails you
and you believe
that nothing will help you,
and when you think
becoming nothing
would mean everything to you,
taking one more breath,
and deciding to stay,
you breathe again.
This is grace:
Letting the tears flow
until you’ve been washed clean
of the pain and sorrow
that you have carried
for longer than anyone
ever should have,
awakening from trance
and realizing
the poison and the antidote
always exist side by side,
opening your eyes,
for just a moment,
bearing witness
to the most incredible miracle
of presence,
seeing the flow of existence,
remembering there is nothing to fear,
there is nothing to forgive.

giving thanks for love, for life,
you breathe again.
there is nothing to forgive.

Space

Standard

space

Space.
Space to be who I am,
want more,
go deeper.

Space to realize what needs to get done
and space to allow some things left undone.

Space for silence.
Space for being.
Space for right now.

This One and Only Moment

Standard

In one moment of clear vision
all of the stories
of fear and lack
are swept away from my eyes.
Reality glows more brightly.
I breathe in deeply.
In the breeze of this moment,
I exhale slowly,
letting go of the past,
creating more space,
receiving this life, now,
in this one moment.
I let go of everything
and the universe begins to laugh,
singing a song of freedom.
I jump into the dance of this moment
and the beloveds join me
near and far,
in the forests, on the mountains,
in the ocean, across the deserts,
looking up and searching in the stars,
diving deeper into the One Self,
circling around a great fire,
delighting in the gift
of this one and only
precious, everlasting moment.
