open your heart
open your heart
At the end of the day 
all we can do is to
be there for our selves.
Taking time to pause
and being present
to our inner state,
without judgment
or temptation to fix.
Setting aside our urge
to make things different
or somehow "better".
Evaluating the pieces
and trying to mould them
into answers that make sense.
Or rushing to move past
the hurt and discomfort
of feelings and thoughts.

Being right here, allow the
strategic mind to quieten
and open your heart.
Connect to love and
your own aching humanity.

In this vulnerable place,
the life energy that moves
through us all, begins
to expand and flow.
There is the knowing presence
that acknowledges the sadness,
the loss and yearning,
and connection to others.

Within us all is
a deep yearning for love,
acceptance and wholeness.
Trust that when you touch
this tender place, the life energy
with awaken and transform you.
Let it flow within you
and through you.
All is well in its presence,
in your Middle Ground.
