Reflection – February 28, 2021

Awaken and remember

these are the times you were born for

Breathe in deeply to center

when you feel the heavy darkness closing in

Breathe out gratitude

for the chance to witness life in all of its fullness

Hold firm to compassion

‘though your heart aches with the suffering of others

Practice patience

as you breathe spirit’s glow into your aging fragile frame

Remain integritous

and reach out with an open heart and hold those you love close

Live joyfully

breathing out the ancestors’ light in what you think, and do, and say

    1. Thank you for your lovely comments, Carrie. Clarissa’s words did come to me as I greeted the morning and the words of the poem flowed from there. I felt I needed to share the poem with others even though I was buried in grading at the time and wasn’t sure how to acknowledge Clarissa’s work without detracting from the clarity and simplicity of the message. I am still buried in grading which is why it has taken me so long to thank you for your kindness. I so appreciate your friendship. 💜
