Groundless

“When we resist change, it’s called suffering. But when we can completely let go and not struggle against it, when we can embrace the groundlessness of our situation and relax into it’s dynamic quality, that’s called enlightenment”
― Pema Chödrön,

groundlessness

i left the earth
to see the sun
and moon
from a different view

i was groundless
and defeated
and my apprehension
grew

the stars were out
my breath was mute
and time
became inert

i sanctioned
bitter wounds to heal,
that words
would cease to hurt

i blurted out
the damage
that had been
done to my soul

the catharsis
of immersed pain,
flung out
of control

in the
narratives
i’d created,
i understood my part

and in this timeless Universe, i cranked open my heart

it was a moment
when fear disrobed
and was exposed
to the light

portals
of awareness
unlocked,
and i knew
i’d be alright

  1. “i sanctioned

    that words

    And i knew I’d be alright .. was just such a relief .. like the reader was taken into the struggles of life and suddenly set free!
    Beautiful. 👌
