Forgiveness

April 30th, 2012 · No Comments

I forgive my father
I forgive my self, as a son
I hope he forgave his father
I hope my brother forgives his father

My resentment has colored every relationship for fifty years.
No more.

“We have been missing you.”

This sentence is liberating for me.

The fact that others want to connect is so different than the story I had been living in.

Melting

There is no “doing” in melting
Only letting

No language
Nor self-violence

Living from the Belly

April 6th, 2012 · No Comments

Mind and muscles attempt to keep the world at bay
Belly (center) accepts the world and moves with it
Even the activity of the mind and muscles is accepted and digested
Mind and muscles strive
Belly digests and rests into living

Live from belly, breath from belly, move from belly, sense from belly
