PLEDGE

Full of beauty
Full of wonder
As this earth is
Then so shall I also
Strive to become

Attacks are in fact
The sign for asking for help
Now it’s up to you

Way Station

WAY STATION

A happy heart is
Always welcome but then it’s
Upward and onward

Bien Sûr

BIEN SÛR

Here’s to tomorrow
Recalling bien sûr

That the sole change
We are capable of

Is the seed we plant
In this current moment

Lessons

LESSONS

We are not always
Comfortable (yet, at least)
With our new wisdom

JOURNEYMAN

One leg will not stand
Understanding not enough
Seek experience

Reconditioning

RECONDITIONING

bliss
bubbling
below the surface

what was happening

conditioned to fear these feelings
deny their existence
pretend

let us experience life
not knowing
what comes next

because
in darker episodes
is so much healing

shadow simply the other side
experience contains its opposite
the seed of the shadow

meet it with love

the way we think
we practice a shape
we are not ready to express

a deity with immense power

we find bliss
if we simply continue
experiencing the sensations

the lessons

Harm not another
In action, even in thought
One day, I promise

Every moment
Can be another lesson
About to begin

But first comes registration
Your voice, loud and clear: “Present!”
