i think it is exceedingly rare these days that we take the time to truly get to know how someone wants to be loved; how they prefer to be treated, acknowledged, let alone or kept company; how they would be heard, understood, and validated; how they want to be touched and embraced, or how they’ll be open to it when they feel safe….
you can imagine a thousand ways for life, or for them, to fail you. that’s what we’re told to expect. yet, in the quiet, penetrating silence, oh my. . ….
water. so patient, violent, peaceful, persistent, forceful, easygoing, unpredictable and just plain effortless. it’ll carry gold and minerals for countless miles. it’ll wash away your tears. it’ll rust out and erode stagnation and it’ll feed life on our entire planet.
be like water. you got this.
to get beyond is-ness
is this world’s business
for what you can see
again and again
you wash over me
