Healing Formula: How to Shine?

Ceiling Light

The healing formula is simple.

The process is universal.

Working through takes time.

From birth to death and always.

Working through takes effort.

First steps are most daunting.

But with commitment and acceptance.

Forgiveness and Love.

And work. Work. Work.

Fear and loathing dissipates.

False self of your ego is revealed.

Tune with your true self and spirit.

Self love blossoms within.

The path becomes clearer.

Decisions easier.

Eventually your heart opens.

Your spirit grows stronger.

Your inner light builds.

Your world is happier.

You shine from the inside out!

Who Am I Today?

Emboss MON no border

Who Am I Today?

Everything feared seems real.

Everything unreal seems feared.

Everything surreal is appealed.

Everything inside is denied.

Everything outside is invited.


Where am I?  What am I?  Who am I?


How do I exist between shards of reality?

Am I remnants of my simplified humanity?

Bound loosely together by memories past?

Will this eternity of unknowingness last?


All that once was “I” has departed my core.

Expanding emptiness remains to keep score.

I am newborn of nothing but take Everything.

Hurt. Pain. Thrills. Experience. Sensation.

It’s all mine! All mine! Mine! MINE!


The void is greedy, demanding, but useless.

Existence consumes and confuses me still.

Questions without answers are like faith without believers.

Did the tree fall? Is the void really empty? Am I real?


Where do I fit between the loneliness of indecision?

And the threats of incision that cut me down?

Felling. Falling. Fallen. In pieces I stand tall.

My world falls apart and reforms with every breath.

Taking it’s time. Taking my time.


Today I was. Today I am. Today I will be.


Is this me?
