Pain can only be stripped away,
In knowing awareness,
That I accept and forgive myself,
Then & Now,
A should’ve, would’ve, could’ve into the equation,
As to slam myself,
Into drawing more negativity into my present.
Pain can be told,
Can be lived through,
Can be re-lived, re-told, re-drawn, re-activated,
To attract what was already lived,
or though we've already worked it, through,
But left undone, unfinished.
Left wide open, when we still dwell there,
When we consciously choose to complicate it,
By reliving it, re-manifesting it, through our focus and complaints..
Pain can be a teacher,
Pain can be freed,
In loving ourselves through its bitter memory,
The stains that healed into scars,
By safely, guiding ourselves and the pain through,
Acceptance and forgiveness!
Through our own circulations,
Of awareness, coming into and going out from.
We can release it,
By no longer allowing this tolerance,
To be our excusable baggage,
To put up with haunting misery,
Letting its memory stay alive within us,
Consuming us, draining us, of our here and now,
That can still become, a “ Better and Happier Now,”
as reality for us…
Lean in, lovelies! Lean in, and through,
With love balancing our walk, our perception,
Our ears, our heart, our presence, our present,
With acceptance, it was who we were,
It happened, and who I was...Led to who I am now,
CHANGED, Blessed, and quite honestly,
Not the same person, then, lives here,
It’s not something we can lazily wish for.
It is something we do or don’t do,
For what has been,
To stay back there,
Where we were,
we have to come into a knowing,
a knowing this doesn't feel right or
a feeling that this isn't gonna be my future?
Requires a broadening of awareness,
And the many choices we have,
Always available for us,
When we look at this moment,
Here and now...
Not in the yesterdays of cluttered thinking,
but the here and NOW, that we all have,
With acceptance and forgiveness,
What unconditional love contains,
With all of our integrity intact, inspired,
Initiated and activated for who we are still,
Yet to become, now, and every now,
Here on after … Love is what gets us through!
Give a little more, into this knowing,
And the relief you have desired, becomes…

I accept and Forgive you,
You are amazing resilient lightgivers, light bringers!
Now, is always in your window, door, and path,
Let your love overwhelm the pain,
So that you may truly live peacefully,
Now, here… As individuals, as Together,
In this knowing, in another knowing,
We are most certainly, not alone,
and not destined to live miserably...
