when the mind can finally accept
that it doesn’t know anything,
and that its purpose is to support,
and truth of the heart—
attention begins turning toward
that magic space inside the chest.
the mind begins listening to the heart.
but what if
the heart doesn’t know how to be in the spotlight?
the heart has been beaten and broken,
too many times to count
over many lifetimes,
and has forgotten
how to speak?
the mind knows it’s not the main act,
and the heart doesn’t want to be.
where does that leave me?
the attentive consciousness,
the one witnessing,
the body that walks through evolution
holding this paradox?
it leaves me
calling upon the unknown light
that exists beyond and beneath this reality,
to guide me
into holding myself,
through the emergent healing journey.
and the present healing
telling my heart
that it’s okay to be.
it’s okay to exist,
and that it is safe
to refract the light of the universe
through it’s unique
and beautiful lens of pure love.
my heart remembers
