A Healing Continuum
Even at my worst moments
I can see how my present experience
Applies to the plan for my life.
Hurts, fears, grasping
Past or present or future
Looking outside myself
For that which I think I need.
Comfort, trust, giving
Looking inside myself
For everything I have ever wanted
Peace, faith, purpose
At any given moment I am in touch with what needs to be
healed and the source of healing.
Without judgment, I can move back and forth. Or I can get help.
I imagine myself in the center of a ring of pools.
I see my consciousness moving
From pool to pool. There is a pool for sorrow
and a pool for joy and a pool for doubt and a
Pool for anger and a pool for love.
When I move from one pool to the other, the last pool
Does not disappear, they peacefully coexist.
I can glance or I can stare or I can explore.
So much pain, so much love, so much joy
