Become deeply anchored in this home, your organic body.
Let your emotions be felt,
passing them through your heart,
to guide your purity of intent.
Intermixed with all the blissfulness,
are the emotions of anger, grief and shame.
These are the emotions that have been allowed
to bypass the heart
and fester in the mind
as wounds that ooze as suffering.
Consider how useless it is for you
to try to take away the suffering of another.
This is their choice, their work, on their terms.
Come to peace with all things.
Remain quietly courageous and joyful,
especially amidst those who are suffering.
Share your presence gently, silently and when sincerely requested.
Be the light, the love, demonstrating this through common,
everyday examples in your encounters with others.
