When you ‘stand between the worlds’, what does that look like and how does that feel?
What luster in your life needs a good buff?
Can you be the peace you wish to see?
The austerity of winter has kissed the land. Leaves gone, laid in piles and in tall bags in front the neighborhood houses.
It’s still outside this morning. The winds of yesterday have blown through and the morning in it’s grey gift keeps calm and silent. The squirrely squirrels have yet to race their madness across the roof and fly into the trees to scamper up and down the old oak, gathering and torturing my cat. Their time for nesting is here. Quiet is easing on to the land, sleep is slipping into the dirt; Winter has given his promise and arrives soon.
Gerald Jampolsky, wrote a book, Love is Letting Go of the Fear, (and several others), and he began the community which he called The Center for Attitudinal Healing in the mid to late 7o’s. I became involved with this group in the late 70’s.
The idea is that your attitude, moment to moment makes the difference in how you see, feel, imagine the world to be.
Shifting your attitude to one of love rather than fear releases the inner negativity and allows you to see the world with love and forgiveness in your heart. I supports peace and inner calm. I have much I could say of all this. And in many ways my poetry and thoughts here reflect that journey that began for me over 30 years ago. http://www.jerryjampolsky.com/Attitudinal.Healing.html Take a visit and give it a read.
Fear pushes love away
Feeds the anguish of negative thinking
Tempts the pain of regret and betrayal
Lays the victim of life on your inner surfaces
Love holds you cradled in the sacred
Fear is the absence of love
It feeds on the belief that it’s all about you
It suckles on yesterdays woes
wallows in tomorrows that hold pain the same
Love caresses the darkness away
Fear is a carrion of gloom and doom
Lays waste to a life of joy and pleasure
Sees through the grey lens of forbidden goodness
Fear will keep you in the belief that you are unworthy
Love sees the divine in everything
What holds you to your fear?
Can you, for a few seconds, release the fear and know
that you are love’s servant and always a gift of joy?
