And so it’s here… this thing you feared…
this thing you had hoped would never come…
this career issue
this end of the relationship
this thing you said you couldn’t handle
this thing you thought might break you.
this situation you hoped to never face.
Seated at your table.
Looking you in the eye.
You are still here.
You are still breathing.
You are still YOU.
You are still you, unadorned.
You are still you, stripped of what you thought you needed.
You are still you, stripped of your view of yourself
You are still you, stripped of what you thought you deserved
You are still you, stripped of your plan
You are still you, perhaps even more so.
You are the essential you.
The quiet you.
The you that exists beyond who THEY say you are.
The you that exists beyond who YOU say you are.
The you that exists beyond the label.
You are the you that sits with the Universe.
You are the you that sits with Nature.
Sits with Allah
Sits with Krishna
Sits with Buddha
Sits with Christ
You are the you that sits with God.
You are the blank slate you.
The authentic you.
The listening you.
The courageous you.
The faith-filled you.
The you that is ready… for the next step.
