Cornered: What is, is. It won’t go away.
Resistance: I feel how unacceptable, shocking, infuriating, terrifying and defeating this is.
Turning toward fears: Underneath my resistance are my fears. I turn toward them, see them and name them. As courage builds, I feel them.
Danger: There is so much that is at risk, the magnitude is overwhelming. Where do I engage to bring more safety? I prioritize needs, and make sure that self-care is on the list. I do what is most compelling. Direct action helps dispel anxiety.
Unleashing what is disallowed: I look at my contribution. Where am I interested in my own comfort at the expense of others or the Earth? When do I condone racism, misogyny or superiority? Where have I internalizedthese? What supports my releasing these patterns?
Obsidian darkness: I balance keeping my body healthy with letting go. I let go of thoughts, feelings, sensations, and relax my attention into what is groundless. I let go of trying. I rest. Body and mind drop away. What remains is obsidian darkness, vast and pervasive, beyond all reaches and limitations; my gateway.
