How Why What

file_007-8

How do we hold

The power

We’ve been given?

How tightly

Or softly

Do we grasp

Our ability to stand above

Or separate ourSelves from

anOther?

How easily

Do we give

Our own power

Away?

How on Earth

Do we call

ourSelves

Back?

How do we see

The world?

And how

Do we allow

ourSelves

To be seen?

How do we claim

ResponseAbility

For our wounding

And for the wounds

We have caused?

How do we open

Clean

Tend

And heal these wounds

Completely

And release the power

That the identity of Victim

Has afforded us?

Why do we pick

At the scabs

But seldom address

The roots?

Why do we numb

The pain

But seldom turn towards

Our suffering?

Why do we feel

So misunderstood by others

When we have spent

So little

Energy

Understanding

ourSelves?

Why are women

Trained

To wait

For the rescue

That never

Comes?

Why are men

Taught

To hold themSelves

Back

To contain

The unseen

Beast

Within?

Why are we

So resistant

To being present

With our children

And so willing

To allow them to experience

The full weight

Of our disconnect?

What can we do

To shift the tides

Towards conscious

Responsibility

Truth

Fearlessness

And wonderment?

What can we do

Everyday

To keep our hearts

Open

And ready to engage

In Connection?

What can we do

To fill our bellies

With our own

Power?

What can we do

To be seen by the world

We have come to inhabit?

What acts of kindness

Fill our hearts with Love

Light

Hope and

Resiliency?

What does the world

Need

Us most to be?

…………

Ourselves

Fearless

And Free

So bravely acquainted

With Death

That we are

Absolutely

Willing to truly

Live

Each day

Each moment

With the absolutely

Undiluted

Power

Of our own

Unique spark

Of divine knowing

All Truth is remembered

Not learned

And no one can remember

For you

What you already

Know to be true!

These are the times

The moments

The heart beats

That every way-shower

For all of history on Earth

Has been waiting for

Preparing for

Delighting in

And sacrificing

everything they can,

Loving all of Life

In the best way they know how,

Just for you

Just for this very specific challenge

Set before you

We have no way of perceiving

The unbelievable

Levels of encouragement

That exist for each one of us

Just beyond

The brink

Of our own

Perceptions

And yet, it is still there.
