Today’s Heart Whisper… sometimes the loving choice is to let go.

You ask me to lift you

and so…

a hand a heart a soul
touches you

you insist
where you are I must also be

but I know
where you are is a ghost of me
where you are I chose not to be

You pull you tug you stamp

you insist
Where you are I must also go

but I see
and I listen
and I feel
and I sense

and so…

my hand my heart my soul
lets go

with love
With light
With compassion

for me
for you

I let go

 

When someone asks for help and I see how their story keeps them in pain, I extend my hand, my heart, my soul. But if they are very attached to their pain, they’ll want to pull me into their story, into their pain, into what justifies it. When their tight grip tries to pull me to where they are, I understand I must let go. Come here I say. Look here I say. But if they insist on staying where they are, unwilling to move, unwilling to see anew, in their full free-will, I must let go. With love, with light, with compassion I extend a prayer… and let go.

Tuesday’s Heart Whisper… Where does kindness come from?

Do not confuse kindness with niceness.

Niceness comes from playing by the rules and hiding behind the expected.

Kindness comes from the depths of a wise and compassionate soul, no matter the rules or expectations.

Given the choice, I choose kindness.
