i attended a support group for people suffering from chronic illness last year. as i was cleaning up some piles of papers today i found a handout the facilitator had given out with a poem on that i thought would be helpful to the group.
Despite illness of body or mind,
in spite of blinding despair or
habitual belief, who you are
is whole. Let nothing keep you
separate from the truth. The soul,
illumined from within, longs to
be known for what it is. Undying,
untouched by fire or the storms of
life, there is a place inside where
stillness and abiding peace reside.
You can ride the breath to go there.
Despite doubt or hopeless turns of
mind, you are not broken. Spirit
surrounds, embraces, fills you from
the inside out. Release everything
that isn't your true nature. What's
left, the fullness, light, and shadow,
claim all that as your birthright.
I have been craving for something like this to show up here!
Now I don't feel like the only one like this..., well you know what I mean.
And I'd like to add this:
"The divine creative power within us, brings us all that we want with happiness, love and peace","for we have the divine ability to manifest and attract all that we need and desire".
"We deserve to experience divine abundance, for we are a part of God".
Let's trust in ourselves and in the Wisdom that created us, be deeply thankful for all that we've received and enjoy giving to others in the spirit of love and service.
Thank you so much for this contribution.
