All things happen for our good.
How long has it been since I fell asleep?
How long has it been since I stood still...
And allowed my own light to shine?
How long has it been since I began to only consume the light?
I believe now all things happen for our enlightenment
Whether in togetherness or separation
In union or conflict
Our experience is only leading us to become
To awaken, to be more, to respond
Not how we are conditioned to respond
But to respond in compassion and kindness.
And sometimes the most compassionate and kind thing to do is to say no, it is in separation, it is to be silent and to stand still.
And let me begin by responding with compassion and kindness to myself first.
And I hope in time my light will be authentic and unwavering, light and free
Where it will always be a place of refuge and shelter.
To all my friends that have been there for me
Thank you for sharing your light. I hope to return the same love to you. I will do better. I am reviving. I am reawakening.
