we sit side by side crisscross applesauce at the back of the room
i used to be a romantic she says as the smoke curls around her head
listening quietly i try not to swat at the smoke
understanding that this feeling that she is feeling just needs time and healing
i join her in her darkness with my tiny light
hold my hand i say
don’t start that goofy holistic shit says my dead hearted friend
this makes me laugh and she half smiles
hand still outstretched
she takes it
tears stream down her face as she ashes into the potted plants
holding hands we sit side by side crisscross applesauce at the back of the room
I take that whole govern yourself accordingly shit seriously.
I know that my present moment responses will directly affect my future…
I move slower than my patience can handle sometimes – but I see the lesson in this too; I am building patience muscle.
My slow movement is so that I can give myself time to think and feel and then move deeper than those thoughts and feelings because inspired action infused with love comes from somewhere deeper- somewhere more in line with who God created us to be.
I know that it will get easier and more automatic to respond from a higher vibration place no matter who or what I encounter.
Govern yourself accordingly Tiffany and remember you are supported.
Connected and protected
The power of love is unmatched she says as she kisses my forehead
I hear you and I am listening
For the sake of my own elevation, and the elevation of all life, I shall seek to do no harm to myself and others.
