The slow return to strength

Putting down the fury
and the self-righteousness
and the vengeance
and the victimhood,
putting the cool compress of compassion to my forehead,
that I do not grow yet weaker

Security

Insecure
your world is no more:
So do not run to the world,
run to me

Don’t ignore yourself any longer, says the Lord –
Voice your wishes, your desires:
I am the Voice
so that you can remember yours

The case not to choose the mountain

You are an ant and your fears are a mountain
but I am the universe and even beyond –
a mountain is dust of the dust

Own yourself!

You’re trying too hard to please –
Be you! Be you in your entirety!
This is how you’re made, in all your facets:
Own your complexity!

Similarities to spirit

Flesh, like spirit, is a wondrous thing, says the Lord:
It starts weak
and becomes strong
only when you work
