Love Letter no. 2

This moment is exactly right.

This is exactly the place you are meant to be, with all the feelings that swirl around you.

But you are not those feelings. You are deeper, more, less than; you are complete. You are a planet and they are stars, they are moons, asteroid belts that orbit, drawn by the weight of your being.

But you are not these feelings. You are not this turmoil.

You are steady. You are constant. You are the rock.

You are ever-changing and ceaseless as the sea, as the lift of water vapor into the air and the cascade of rain onto the land.

You are the photosynthesis in the leaf. You are the golden heat in the sun.

You are greater than you see, most days.

You are very great.

In the boundless universe, in the limitless multiverse, every point is the center.

You are the center.

You mistakenly think you are the cause, the fault, the failing, but you are not. You are yourself. If you could learn to see in and around and through yourself, your body, your story, your lifespan, you would witness a mandala. You would see the spiral of a rose. You would open your mouth with an aha! that has been ever on your lips, waiting to be spoken.

In the greatness of life, in the vastness of mystery, you are exactly right, exactly in this moment, and we thank you for it. We are so grateful you are you. We are so honored to cross paths, like comets in space, our purple spangled tails colliding, merging, dividing again.

There is nothing wrong here. You are doing the job that has always been meant just for you. You are taking part in a dance that, seen from a great height, or viewed under a microscope is pure love, pure trust, pure beauty.

Feel the lift in your arms. Feel the stillness in your middle. Feel the twinge in your feet, the poetry on your lips. Trust it all. You are safe in your complete inhabiting of yourself.

Love Letter no. 1

Where you are is just fine. Allow yourself to be loved, exactly as you are, precisely in this moment. Let the lines around you blur, feel yourself slide into everything else. Feel yourself merge back into your true nature: feel the relief of not holding yourself separate and distinct from the world for a moment.

Who you are in this moment is fine. Who you are right now is good. You are kind and loving. You are wise. You are connected to a wisdom that is ceaseless, whispering always like wind in the grass, like waves on the sand.

And when you are busy, distracted, heartbroken, angry, you are also good and fine then; you are also wonderful and dazzling, glorious, completely loved.

There is nothing that can separate you from Goodness. There is nothing that can divide you from your soul, from your core, from the essence of your being. Even when you feel you are so, so wrong, so far off course, you are still at home in yourself. You are the ship. You are the waves. You are the depths below.

It’s all going to be okay because it all is okay. Let your focus slip. Let your gaze go to that other realm. Put out one small feeler and taste on your tongue the constant, the bottomless power of Trust.

Trust in your greatness.

Trust in your connectedness.

Trust your self.
