no matter what
are you willing to stay here?
not run away...
not turn away...
but stay here and fully face whatever is here?
truly meet what's here.
not move a millimeter.
meet whatever shows up... no matter what it is...
an emotion or a whole bunch of them,
a thought a sentence or a whole story,
some ache or pain or imbalance in the body
just stay here and breathe... just be
allow whatever is here to be here... not trying to move it or push it through, or dissolve or transform it or get rid of it in any way
simply be here with what is... deeply feeling the roots of being
not thinking about what's here and the best strategy to understand it or to fix it
in being here with this fully, you begin to notice movement. whatever seemed to be stuck begins to move, to transform, to soften, to dissolve... all on its own
breathe... keep breathing... take a conscious breath
fully present throughout the entire movement of the breath...
nothing that appears is personal. how could it be? you aren't a person!
just beautiful space, clear light awake beingness, pure Presence
aware of what's here.
without a thought about it,
fully embodied Stillness... being itself... being Still
withholding is welcome here
hardness is welcome here
separation is welcome here
"my personal problem" is welcome here
_____________ is welcome here
seamlessness is welcome here
you aren't a prisoner of conditioning
you aren't a victim
you aren't a perpetrator
gentle kind compassionate loving Stillness
you have nothing to lose
you have nothing to defend
the only thing at risk is an illusion.
no story about what's here
just aware of the breath... feeling the breath
