Presence

If words have power and create, then let these be healing words. Healing for the pain of people, physical and mental. Healing for the sorrow. Healing for the void. Healing for the loss. Healing for fear. Healing for hatred and anger. Healing for separation. Healing for not knowing. Healing for well-knowing. Healing for the choices that were made, and healing for the choices that were not made.

Healing. Healing. Healing. Healing.

Let’s go to the pain and keep it company.
Let’s go to the sadness and see it.
Let’s go to the void and experience it.
Let’s go to the loss and acknowledge it.
Let’s go to the fear and understand it.
Let’s go to the hatred and be with it.
Let’s go to the anger and give it space.
Let’s go to separation and embrace it.
Let’s live through the unknowing.
Let’s shed some light on knowing.
Let’s leave the choices that were made.
Let’s leave the choices that were not made.

The prompt today at octpowrimo.com was inspired by the Indian Diwali, festival of lights. One of the questions in the blog post was “How do we heal ourselves?”.

    I read this and it helped. It also reminded me of the new moon ritual we performed yesterday, where the first meditation was to let our intention appear. My head tried to lead me towards peace, but my body refused to go there and instead showed me anger. An anger so powerful that it split me open and shot to the sky.
    I’m still working on day 27’s poem I think. I may use the words above as a start for day 28’s.
