True Power, True Wisdom

Standard

There are some inescapable facts in life:
We will die some day.
Aging and loss are inevitable.
Sickness arises and we can do nothing
except resign ourselves to wait
until it shifts.
Yes, misery happens–
but we don’t have to make ourselves
more miserable
denying this fact.
There is a way to greet
all of these painful experiences
as powerful allies
on our path to awakening.
First we must stop expecting
to escape the inescapable,
believing that old lie
that we can somehow avoid pain and sorrow
and just feel good all the time.
When we drop that storyline,
we can breathe into a more open, curious place
calling forth the witnessing self,
settling into this moment as it is.
Now we have the space in our minds
to learn what each experience
has come to teach us.
This is true power.
This is true wisdom.
