your sanctuary of re-membrance
as i learn to observe my own pain, i am grateful for the compassion that allows me to simultaneously hold space for the pain of my human family
where i am quick to judge, i recognize what the mirror is reflecting back to me
& when i feel hate, i inquire about the clever ways of fear
thank you for the stillness that reminds me of what i inherently know—what an honor it is to be a vessel for consciousness
for i know that my healing is the healing of the whole
and so it is.
