one path to transformation

it was a thought

a hunger

a whisper

a nudge, an invitation

wanna dance?

i said yes.

i was good at no. it left me in the no where. so i said yes.

yes opened a door-

wanna dance?

yes.

ask what you don’t know.

ask what terrifies you.

ask what you don’t want to be asked.

tell yourself the truth.

own it.

embrace the places where you are broken.

display your scars. they are medals of honor. own them.

change.

you are an ocean. plumb your depths. know your shores. expand. contract. be the tide.

drive your own life.

bleed for yourself.

weigh the journey. is it worth the cost even if you never arrive. know when you arrive.

rejoice.

in being.

because you have hands.

sing.

love.

evict fear. divorce petty. kick jealously out.

be fierce.

glow in your own light.

build things.

give things away.

open your heart.

don’t say: why me?

mean it when you say: why not me.

push back.

stand in truth. the truth. divine truth.

remember.

forgive.

release.

hold.

protect.

grow.

learn.

learn.

learn.

share knowledge.

listen.

learn.

share.

learn.

open.

flow.
