We often run to others for answers because we don’t want to make a mistake. But, the right answer is never outside of us so it can never be found out there.
The right answer requires that we sit through our discomfort with and fear of ourselves. It requires us to ask ourselves the questions and then take the risk of listening to ourselves.
This is what “following the heart” is all about. No saint, yogi, spiritual guide, life coach, therapist, or friend knows. Only the heart knows.
The only way through is through your own heart.
You are not here to build empires or leave legacies. You are here to connect with your body and breath, and then surpass it. You are here to evolve.
Your core is paramount in this process. What is your core? Your “gut” and “spine”. Your heart and brain depend on your core in order to function properly.
When you breathe better, you think better. The clarity of your breath affects the clarity of your brain.
Most of us have gut, spinal, and breathing issues. Most of us don’t know it!
remnants of a prostitute
seek to exploit
an object to be of service
an existence she must have lived
in these bones some time
sold them hollow
to make a home
even today he survives
dark alleys of my mind
anxious to bring justice
to being alive
like a table that’s come to life
he seeks a purpose beyond herself
a salvation that never arrives
it’s in your eyes
i see an ocean
one i dive in
one that calls my soul
one that scares me
one that’ll take me whole
it’s in my eyes
