This veil between me and everything
I understand to be of my own construction.
Understandably, I relied upon others
to make sense out of all this everything I experienced.
As a result, during my youth and thereafter,
I manufactured a myriad of:
- strategies of avoidance
- strategies of accumulation
- strategies of conformity
And this veil, of my own creation,
as I pulled it over myself
it became my invisibility cloak,
and it became my anesthetized outer skin
? of protection ?
? for protection ?
We are each faced with our work to deconstruct and disempower
and regain the openness and ease of being with
this everything we are born into.
May many blessing be bestowed upon each of us
to support all that we will let go,
in order to feel connected with ourselves,
and then everything else – once again.
