like water (day fifteen)

I channeled Buddy Wakefield in this piece, particularly his speech with TED (which I posted in a previous post on this blog. Worth a watch, every minute of it).

This is my mantra, what keeps me going.  I hope you enjoy.

 

like water

 

bring yourself back

to center

from wherever you went

 

breathe

(you will always be able to do this)

 

chaos

no matter how intense

always subsides

 

this too shall pass

under all the bridges you’ve walked over

 

throw the largest rock your strength allows you to hold into the waters

bottomless

(hurl the mountains

if you can)

(because you can)

 

create the largest riptide

tidal wave

tsunami

 

ripples always dissipate

 

calm

steady

after every storm

 

smooth

 

we too have this ability

 

to breathe

and find our center

 

this too shall pass

like everything else

 

you are still

here
