ENDURANCE RUNS DEEP...
| a contract with my body |
In the meditation I feel my body bolstering the forces,
going deep to recover the magic
that will heal it a million times over.
I feel it unearthing a special medicine
which hasn't been asked to be released before -
like love, is suddenly the activating agent
that will allow this uncovered potency to circulate my veins.
It will be released in doses,
only when the most authentic, self-love is present.
When it’s aligned, I can feel it.
It melts away my deepest doubts
so I hear only the certainty:
I POSSESS THE POWER TO HEAL MYSELF.
Inadequacy and fragility are a state of mind
we allow comparison and others' opinions
to layer upon us.
Brick by brick,
we bury the true magic deeper and deeper.
We allow it to create limits
and blockages within us.
It was in this meditation the truth surfaced:
endurance runs deep.
If there was anything I'd never doubted
it was the capacity of my body.
to rise to the occasion.
"BE KIND," I REMIND MYSELF...
BE KIND IN MY BODY. TO MY BODY. WITH MY BODY.
AN INTELLIGENCE AND MAGIC DECORATES MY INSIDES I WILL NEVER NEED TO QUESTION.
I know the time will come again
where I find my hands tied,
needing to go home to my self.
Where I need to look inside
to remember the magic is internal.
What's miraculous is:
the body continues to learn,
even when we cannot.
Just when the mind is certain it's reached its limits,
the body always shows us that
the boundaries are simply perceived.
At the crux of it...
when we truly go home to our selves
