Being Open


“What produces a genuine person is being open to not feeling okay.”
(Pema Chödrön)

From all of our journeys
The one within will take you deeper
To a place of love and fear
Where Being resides
And when we close our eyes
We suddenly realize
We do not want to go
What we may find scares us
Threatens us
All we want is love
But Dear, listen
Become friendly with yourself
Smile at fear
Welcome your pain
Feel your way in
And all the sudden
You have found a peace
An acceptance
A genuine feeling
That trumps all others
It is Life itself
Embracing you
All of you
